Construction around the restaurant makes it difficult to find if you are not from the area but it is WELL WORTH the trip. Make reservations since it is a small eatery. The sushi was outstanding. The wife and I had sushi in Japan a few years ago and this place can hang with any place we had in the homeland.... More

It is a small place, so it would be good to make a reservation. Their tempura is very good, and there are many specials. It was a bit pricey, but the quality of the food was worth it. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and our food came quickly.

When we moved from the Los Angeles area to Bakersfield, we missed the authentic Japanese owned sushi restaurants there were in Southern California. While vacationing in the central coast last week we visited Goshi restaurant in San Luis Obispo. What a wonderful surprise. It was a typical cozy Japanese restaurant you could find in Japan. We ordered a combination of... More

Visiting central California and we felt like sushi and saw Goshi as a highly-rated option on Google maps. Despite that high rating, Goshi exceeded my expectations and reminded me from a fish/food perspective of the better sushi restaurants in Vancouver and Tokyo. Awesome fresh fish, well served. Quality of the staple sashimi and sushi items was excellent (fish and rice... More

Terrific sushi! We got there right at 5:00 pm on a Saturday and got right in - no waiting. A cozy restaurant with great menu selection. Our server went above and beyond. Don't miss this awesome dining experience when in SLO!

Ordered one of the combinations. Comes with soup, salad, tempura, sushi, sashimi, etc. I was so full I needed a wheelbarrow to get out. Fish was fresh and tasty, service was excellent.

The staff were very helpful and accommodating to our needs and special requests. They were also very attentive in asking us if we needed our drinks refilled or if we'd like anything further. Will definitely return to this restaurant if we're in the area.

It was my stepdaughter who told us to go to this sushi place for lunch. We were amazed that there was a long line before 11am. The food much be very good and very fresh. Our expectation was correct. I had the best Uni and best sashimi. Everything melts in your mouth.

Best Japanese food in the county. Better than Nobu for less than half the cost. If you like fish, the cooked and uncooked fish is of the highest quality. They have a good beer and saki selection as well. All of their desserts taste just like you were in Japan.
