                                                                This is the best Japanese cuisine I have had in years. The menu is diverse and the food is brilliantly presented. We sat at the sushi bar and still had a server who provided excellent service and recommended lovely options. There is also a small parking lot as well as street parking in quaint downtown SLO. I highly recommend reservations be made, as this is a very popular place!

It has been for a very long time. Some of my friends have been known to measure time in "Goshis", as in the length of time between visits. A Goshi experience happens only so often, but when it does, it is memorable

Really liked the large variety or dishes. They have a good sake menu. We had sunomono, tempura, agadashi tofu, the eel roll and various nigiri. The only negative was the fish on the nigiri all had a metallic taste and it was dry as if it was precut cut. Fun place will come back.

All employees were masked and the tables were had plenty of room in between them (no outdoor seating). Our waiter was very attentive as well as our busser. The sukiyaki is my all time favorite and portions are plentiful. I'm am cost conscious and find the prices are very good. The menu has several combo meals which are the best deals. I highly recommend Goshi
