The family behind Shimogamo moved to Arizona in 1994 from Japan, and they immediately noticed that their neighborhood lacked restaurants where they were able to enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine. In 2003, Sanae and Yoshio Otomo finally decided to open a restaurant in Chandler to serve their native food, with high respect to the origin and quality of the culinary culture of their home country. Shimogamo features a sushi bar, dining area, and cocktail bar. Our sushi menu is filled with engaging, creative items, fine-tuned for those who are looking for a unique experience in Japanese dining. Our forté is not just sushi, but also the kitchen menu that focuses on delivering real Japanese flavors crafted by Chef Daisuke with his extensive knowledge and skills in treating authentic ingredients. From fresh market fish to premium Japanese Wagyu beef, chefs at Shimogamo are dedicated to treating ingredients to their fullest and delivering flavors that dazzle guests’ palates every time they come in.
