    This restaurant is a favourite for Japanese food! The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, the food excellent and so fresh. Only complaint is it’s always busy - a really good sign - and sometimes hard to get booking!! We’ll be back though!

    The food was very good although a little more pricey than other Japanese restaurants in the area. It can also be a little noisy as it is popular with families and there is little noise reduction through other factors, although on the night it was OK. Food choice is very good but the Tempura batter a little heavier than we have had before. Overall a good experience

    The prices are hefty for a smaller local Japanese place, but the food quality was good and their serving sizes generous. Delicious bento box options.

    We had Japanese food while on holiday, and were desperate to come back to our favourite Gochiso... fresh, authentic food and lovely welcome which is not matched elsewhere

    I love the ambience at this restaurant. I used to come more often when I lived in Chatswood but since I moved away I only come occasionally. It is a little hidden gem in a quiet neighbourhood. Food is great and fresh. I will definitely visit again.

    Disappointing a clearly a busy night that took its toll on the staff. They just couldn’t seem to cope. Slow and inefficient so not the usual standard.

    Gochiso was absolutely packed yesterday at lunch. Unfortunately there was only 1 serving so it was quite a long wait for the food. But he did a marvellous job, running around trying to take orders, serve the food and clear tables and showed no stress. Well done and congratulations to the waiter! We were happy to wait for the food as it's always so fresh and delicious.

About the restaurant

Fresh and fabulous

Sometimes you just want a light, fresh and delicious dinner – and on these nights, Gochiso is the place for you. This little gem in Willoughby on the North Shore of Sydney is a bit of a local secret and the kind of place that people go back to again and again. From the tasty little starters such as the agedashi tofu or salt and pepper squid through to the wide selection of sashimi and sushi, Gochiso consistently offers up delicious food made from fresh ingredients. Some of the more unusual offerings, such as the eggplant and soba noodle salad and the Kiss Me Roll (with cooked prawn on top of crab mix, cream cheese & cucumber roll with yogurt mayo sauce & sweet chilli sauce) are hits with the regulars, as is the impressive kids menu that an adorable sushi introductory dish called “I heart salmon” that is designed to get young taste buds hooked on this healthy style of eating.

Best Dish: Popcorn prawn
