3 restaurantes japoneses na zona norte:

Location: Hotel Palácio, Av. Boavista. Porto
Webpage: http://www.gosho.pt/
Location/Decor: Trendy minimalist and romantic decor. Black walls and light spots.
Service: Very slow, Professional.
Food: Japanese
Wine list: yes. Not consulted.
They have take away of sushi boxes.

Lots of sushi and sashimi. Some fusion dishes ( Gyu Niku- Barrosã meat grilled). Not much of japanese cuisine beyond the sushi family. Sushi men are mostly brasilian and on view.

What I had:
2 starters (squash Ravioli and chestnuts shot)- well executed fine cuisine starters. Delicious. Impressive.
Sushi selection by the sushi man-12 units - Only 3 varieties were in the set. All were makizushi. A very poor selection for such an ambitious restaurant. An unidentified hosomaki covered in red sauce with white fish which tasted badly. California uramakis and a salmon hosomaki could be classified as acceptable. All of them unrolled easily when picked up wich is not a good sign.
2 Temakis- Only half filled but weel rolled and beautifully presented. The taste was not outstanding.
Tempura- By far one of my favorite japanese dishes where I set my standards very high. Although the variety of vegetables presented was good the tempura itself was not light and thin and i risk to say i can do peixinhos da horta at home with better results.
Deserts- No japanese desserts were listed except for a "taste set" of unamed ones. They where therefore not tried.

Trendy, expensive restaurant with interesting offers. Very nice place to take a significant other. General impression was that the restaurant quality and the price range do not match. Although some efforts were put in the cooking the final result was far from excellent. lacks diversity in japanese dishes for a restaurant with such aspirations. The service is quite slow- they took 25 minutes to bring 2 Temakis and brought the bill before we asked for it- 2 unconfortable flaws.

Average price: 30 €/person
Rate: 3 (range 0-5. 5 for excellent. 0 for awful)
