This Japanese restaurant always serves beautiful and delicious food. My family and I talk about it for days afterwards. Excellent service too.

I've been visiting Goto for over 5 years and this place is always top of my list of restaurants to head to when I'm back in Plymouth. The sushi is great and they have a good range of hot dishes too.

The ambience needs some improvement as the restaurant feels like a budget cafeteria. It is also very cold with little or no heating. We dined there as two couples and we were the only people dining there on Friday night which didn't make for a great atmosphere. The food however is very good although we thought quite expensive for what... More

Anniversary meal in February, chose Japanese because we'd not eaten this style before and so scoured Tripadvisor for a decent restaurant. We were not dissapointed. Staff were gushingly polite and knowledgeable and their native dress gave a truly authentic feel. We chose from a set menu and the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. A very pleasant couple of... More

Best Japanese food I have had since last time I was in Japan, authentic and delicious. The sashimi was really fresh and the agedashi tofu and chicken yakitori were as good as any I have had in Japan. Can't wait to try more things on the menu.

We had lunch here and enjoyed the food and drinks immensely. The waitresses were delightful and wore their national costumes. The best sushi in Plymouth 10/10.

After an absence of a few months and reminded of Goto by being taken to the new Japanese theme restaurant in Princess Street, we came back to Goto to contrast and compare. These places could hardly be more different. Kuku is big loud brash but confident and theatrical in it's presentation. It attracts groups, women and lively night out dining... More
