I went to Go Tempura on a first date and will be returning for my second. I had an exceptional time! While we got there around 7 and were seated around 8 it was a busy night! Simply standing in line for a table however was fun in itself! The restaurant has an energy that far surpasses any major chain... More

This little sushi place looks a feels like an old diner. I enjoy the atmosphere and service. I've had the "all you can eat" a few times but have switched to just ordering their bento boxes. They have a large selection to choose from and including soup and salad costs $8 - $10. Great lunch stop. Might not be the... More

The food, service, and atmosphere were outstanding. The price was reasonable. Will likely dine here again.

Yes, there's better sushi around, most notably at Matsu sushi in Dundas. But this is a great family-run place for a fun night out with friends. The service is excellent. The food is plentiful. Lots of sushi. And the price is right. Just be sure you finish everything. Extra charges (just a few dollars) for food left behind, which I... More

I've tried most of the sushi in Hamilton over the years. Tried go tempura for the first time. The menu has a good variety and the staff were nice. But, the food quality just wasn't there. I felt it was on par with sushi from fortinos. The rice was cold and didn't taste fresh. Overall there wasn't anything that stood... More

Had lunch here today - a vegetarian bento box - what a lovely selection of sushi, tempura, hand rolls, spring rolls, seaweed salad! I left feeling full, and it only cost $9. I'll be back!

I can not say enough about the service. The family who run the place are very friendly and know us by name. Maybe it's because we've become regulars, but who wouldn't? We always get the all you can eat sushi lunch menu (even at dinner) and it always costs us less than 40$ for two people (including tax and tip).... More

We always end up coming back for our regular sushi buffet binges. Family run, warm friendly service always. You seat yourself and drinks are quickly served. Dated interior, but food makes up for it. Lunch menu can be served at dinner (for an extra dollar). Certainly very generous with the fish topping on the nigiri, which is perfect. Squid sushi,... More

It was great! Everything from appetizers to desserts were delicious! Only 2 desserts though, that all have something to do with ice-cream. I recommend to order bit by bit though, they charge $1.00 for every piece of sushi you don't finish, and $2.00 for any other dish. Other than that, this is the place to go!

Located in an unremarkable little strip mall off of the James Street North artist area, Go Tempura is a great find. The sushi is fresh and delicious and the prices for their "all you can eat" lunch and dinner are great--mainly because if you order from the lunch menu they'll charge you lunch prices even if it's dinner time!
