I've been a fan of fresh fish Japanese style since 1970. On business trips to Japan in mid-70s, lived in L.A. County for years and regularly sought out the best Japanese sashimi. I used to hit House of Taka on Van Nuys Blvd before the owner moved back to Japan. My chef daughter suggested that we visit Goshi, she warned... More

Had dinner here in late May. Was a bit difficult to find - through a courtyard, in the back off an alley - but worth the search. Great food - we had boat with chef's selection of the day's sushi - and even better service: very attentive and friendly. Will be back!

So many of these trendy restaurants lack the traditional Japaneese Class and style and dedication to excellence. But Goshi's has maintained its excellence and quality sense the beginning. It was the original sushi I. The area and is run traditionally. By Japaneese Sushi Masters. Small, crowded and sometimes difficult to get in still it remains my favorite sushi I. The... More

The food is simply the most fresh, thoughtfully prepared, and authentic sushi that you will find within a 200 mile radius of San Luis Obispo. Gimmicks and American inventions made to look Japanese will not be found here. The staff works insanely hard and service is always quick and attentive. Interior decor is simple and befitting tradition.

Being of Japanese descent, we frequently eat japanese cuisine. This restaurant definitely has delicious, authentic food. I LOVED the handrolls. Everything is of high quality and presented beautifully. Food is delicious! Highly recommend. Great staff, fast service and good parking.

Went here on Easter Sunday with my family and nephew who attends Cal Poly for dinner. My nephew recommended this place as one of the best Japanese restaurants around. Put my name in and was told it would be 45 minutes. No problem, wanted to catch up with my nephew. Well, 45 minutes came and went. Actually had to wait... More

We had a terrific meal at Goshi. Our server helped make the experience really great. She enthusiastically recommended several unusual items we hadn't tried before. The food was a bit slow to come out, the restaurant was very busy, it was a Saturday night. It was good we had reservations! The Tuna Belly was especially good and Tataki yellowtail. Of... More

A lot of people are talking about the great fish and I completely agree with all of them, yet there is something about the rice they utilize that makes this place DELICIOUS! I attended with a group of friends and the pricing is good, and the tempura was served perfectly. I cant wait to come back and try the dessert,... More
