DO NOT GO! – I would not recommend Goten and all the splendor they have pumped themselves up to be. I dined there for an afternoon lunch, hence I needed to get in and get out. First, the waitress was very snappy and seemed very impatient. I was a little confused because I thought taking orders fell into her job scope. I ordered the chicken teriyaki and requested broccoli instead of rice ( doing the low carb thing). They served me the green tea, soup and salad....that was fine. Then, they brought out my main dish with rice no broccoli. The lady that took my order came over and confirmed what I wanted....so I was a little confused on why it was wrong in the first place. Then, they brought it back correct but the chicken teriyaki was cold. I asked if it could be hot(silly me) and I got a puzzling look and a "hold on" let me check. She came back said they could warm it up in the skillet but would not re-cook it and would not refund. Not sure why this was the first thing she said....maybe she was programmed. At this point, I was already late and starving. So, I stated "okay" and they slightly warmed it up, brought it back along with the check ( no discounts or apology). I politely paid and left. Customer service is definitely a thing of the past.........DON'T GO TO GOTEN! Thank you:)
I'll go-back to go-ten – A little pricey, but worth it. Really good service. This is one of the better hibachi sites in Nashville. Sushi is not bad, but I liked the hibachi better. Overall, a pretty good dining experience. We'll be back for sure.
Best Sushi Ever – I have to tell you that this place blew me away! It was a nice restaurant that wasn't overpriced especially for the quality that you receive. The service was excellent and the food was amazing! I will definitely come back again and again!
Very good – I was excited to be able to finally find a tofu dish at a Japanese restaurant. The dish and the vegetables were absolutely delicious. My gf had the lobster, chicken and filet mignon and she just raved about it. The drinks were delicious - we had a chocolate type martini and one called the Extreme Miranda . The dessert selection (cheesecake or orange sherbet) was simple and the sherbert cleansed the palate nicely.
Although the salad dressings to choose from were all unique the taste was just ok. The soup was also good. Service was excellent.
Nashville's best sushi right now. – We eat at Goten's fairly regularly and have tried sushi just about everywhere else in Nashville. Right now, we think Goten has the best sushi, and hibachi. I think it's possible for someone to have a bad experience at just about any restaurant, including Goten. But we've found Goten to deliver very good food and service on a consistent basis.
These hibachi chefs have mastered the art of chopping, dicing and tossing. – In Short
Located on a quiet side street near Vanderbilt, this restaurant offers Japanese hibachi and sushi, each served on its own side of the restaurant. Each hibachi dinner includes a shrimp appetizer, soup, salad, rice, vegetables, a fish, chicken, or beef entree, green tea and dessert. Notable non-sushi items include edamame and tempura udon noodle soup--thick noodles with tempura shrimp. Regulars know to order a salad simply to experience Goten's exceptional salad dressings--mustard, raspberry, and onion.
Sushi was not good! – I was so disappointed by Goten's sushi. The rice was dry and the roll was just...tasteless! Won't go back...
Best Japanese Place – I have been eating there for over 5 years. I have great time everytime I go. The service is great and food is the bomb.
Amazing Japanese Hibachi – I couldn't actually care less about sushi and miso soup and whatever else comes in a bento box that anyone can get in a multitude of hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurants. Goten is about hibachi, and that makes it amazing to me. My girlfriend and I eat there every single month and crave the fried rice and hibachi chicken and shrimp always. Simply the best Japanese you could imagine, never been disappointed in the show, service, food, or ambiance.
Great sushi, good service – This place has some of the best sushi I've had and I've been on both coasts.(aren't I cosmopolitan?heehee) Anyway I don't know what everyone is complaining about as far as service goes, the wait staff and hosts have always been very accommodating and pleasant. Sure there's a long wait sometimes at the hibachi grill, even if you have reservations and that can be a little annoying(sure you can take the reservation, but you didn't keep the reservation and that's really the most important part of the reservation, don't you think?)
