“Great lunch sampler set menu, great Japanese tapas!”

So glad Gochi opened up closer to us! This place takes reservations and so we never have to wait forever!

I like the set up and decoration - really gives it an authentic feel. The sakes are are all pretty good. Their tapas range from a couple bites to large portions. If you come for lunch there's a sampler with multiple items that's really reasonable. Try the items on their special menu as those are updated.

Some of the items I've tried:

Kimchee and pork rice bowl - flavorful and filling
Chicken wing deep fried with seven spice - dry... pass
Kanpachi kama with salt - very good. They run out often so be sure to order it!
Beef tataki - good
Duck with some sort of sauce - very tender and flavorful
Asari miso - clams seems like they were added after the soup is cooked so it was flavorless. Soup was good, but I'd just get the mushroom miso in the future

Don't let the strip mall location keep you from coming in and trying the wonderful, inventive dishes that are large enough to share! There are daily specials and the service is friendly and attentive. My husband and I went in at 11:30 and noticed that by 12 the small place was full. Reservations are a must with a large group.

There are more restaurants serving Japanese-style food in the Bay Area than you could possibly ever try. But Gochi truly had an exciting menu with dishes that you don't normally find elsewhere. Most importantly--the dishes were beautifully executed and delicious.

The yuzu ceviche was a medley of seafood in a very light marinade. Not for the raw seafood amateur, since the lightness of the seasoning did not mask any of the natural flavors of the raw seafood.

The satoimo agedashi might have been the highlight of the night. Taro in a dashi broth, it was both exciting and comforting at the same time.

The tempura moriawase was solid and the chasu miso pizza definitely an interesting combination of dough, mozzarella cheese, pork, and mushrooms. The yaki onigiri was very tasty--the pan seared rice has a wonderful crunch and texture.

Staff were attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. The menu is so expansive and has so many items that I wanted to order that I will definitely be back to try more.

The Claypot dinners are amazing! The location is small so make reservations if you are bringing a group.

This is a 2nd location of the restaurant with the same name as the one in Cupertino. Menu items between the 2 locations as I recall are similar, if not identical. They serve Japanese style tapas with a nice selection of many different dishes. We tried many dishes including a clay pot rice with unagi, kurobuta chashu, daikon salad, all turned out to be excellent.

Parking can be a bit tricky during lunch/dinner time, and I recommend making a reservation.
