I have not had much experience with eating Japanese food, but we all enjoyed our meal here. The various sushi dishes, and the miso soup was tasty, the price was very reasonable, and we also tried the seaweed salad. the waitress was very attentive, also. We were full at the end, but didn't feel bloated, which so often happens with... More

This is a great restaurant, as a vegetarian there are many, many great options here. The vegetable potsickers are incredible. Make sure to ask for miso soup without fish broth if u are vegetarian and also to tell them not to bring u chopticks if you don't wish to use them as they do not use washable chopsticks. The table...

By appearance, Sushi Tao is basic and unpretentious. Then you experience the cordial and attentive service and the excellent sushi with its value pricing, and it feels like you've just found a "jewel in the rough". The chef, Frank, is friendly, attentive to quality and gets the important details right. The sashimi, sunomono with tako, spider roll and miso soup... More

My family loves to get sushi here, we have tried a variety of the rolls and are always pleased. They have some good combination plates that are always great to share. Me and my 5 year old share all the time and we both fill up. The price is much better than the other sushi places in town and it... More

We just ate here last night and all three of us agreed that the food was some of the best Japanese food we have eaten. I had the Salmon with rice, salad and sushi (I chose the California roll) and my dining partners ordered a sushi combination platter and enjoyed the California rolls so much that they ordered another California...

We love going to Sushi Tao. It's a small place, but has consistently good sushi and quick service. We could go to the more popular places (which are sometimes difficult to get into), but always thoughts come back to, "Let's go to Sushi Tao!" The miso soup is really good, the sushi is really good and the owner is always... More

Tomo is good, but I honestly like Sushi Tao even better. Considering that Sushi Tao is less expensive than most other sushi places in the area (including Tomo's), it's easy to choose it over the others. What's really strange to me is that the least expensive sushi in the area is also the most delicious. Oh well, I'm not going... More

Sushi Tau is an unassuming little restaurant in Arcata's Northtown area. People had raved about it for a long time so when a reservation was unavailable at our usual sushi place we gave it a try. The food lived up to expectations and at a good price. The service is perhaps too good. It seemed as if our orders had... More

Wow - We were in Arcata last week and had sushi four times. You cannot go wrong with any of the restaurants that serve sushi. But, a friend had recommended Sushi Tao and we always had gone to another restaurant. We were so impressed that we ate there twice during our stay. Their 49er Roll is to die for. They... More

Pretty good, a little less expensive than Sushi Spot or Tomo, and you can always get in. Fast service, staff is capable. I go there often, but it is pretty much no frills.
