    We love Shimogamo. The food is amazing, with fresh ingredients. The ambiance is lovely, and we like the opportunity to watch the chefs prepare the food. We recommend it to everyone we know. However, like so many other restaurants these days, the service is provided team-style. Unfortunately, this equaled a server abruptly coming over to fill (and spill some) water but saying nothing, another one telling us the specials, the third one taking our order but also taking quite a while to actually get us some missing food, and yet another telling us the dessert options so quickly we literally couldn’t remember much of what she said. They all seemed very nice, but the entire process lacked organization and was jarring with so many people involved. We suggest a revamp.

    My husband and I love tempura and have been looking for a good place for 20 years. A friend told us about Shimogamo and we were excited to try it. Everything we had was fresh, very good and beautifully presented. A bit pricey but shrimp tempura was the best we have had in the Phoenix area. We asked for vegetable tempura but they have not included that on the menu yet. Oysters were soooo good and sauces were unique and very tasty. Crowded so I would advise reservations. Good for a group as lots of items to share.
