Pretty good

This was the closest sushi joint near the hotel I was staying at (Bear River Casino) but it was still a little bit of a drive. Anyhow, I placed my order to-go and picked it up. It was pretty good.

Sushi Spot? I envisioned a local attempt to make sushi, and I originally opted for another sushi location just down the street. Lucky for me the first place was closed after lunch (it was ~ 2PM?). So we opted to try the Sushi Spot, with low expectations. I don't even remember what we ordered, but it was much better that... More

It's a small room but the food doesn't disappoint. The staff are great and accommodating. If you can't get in right away you can give them your cell number and have them call you when a table is free. In the meantime you can stroll around the plaza.

Ordered two of the house rolls and a crispy spicy. The rolls were delicious. The two house rolls we ordered would have been plenty for the two of us, but we were glad we had the crispy spicy as it was amazing. Will definitely return next time we are in the area!

First time at the sushi spot and the last time. The salmon is smoked or cured, not raw. We ordered the chefs choice sashimi and the albacore was seared. Tomo's down the street is much better.

Best sushi in Arcata. What more can i say? I have frequented every sushi place in town for years and this is my favourite. After every meal here I think to myself: I should eat here once a week at least. The staff is helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The place is always clean, the fish fresh, and the menu is...

Love that's it's a smaller restaurant you don't have to wait as long to get served. Excellent oysters. Fabulous special sushi rolls.

Great sushi in Humboldt County, possibly even the best I have had! Casual atmosphere, but elegant and attentive service. They are constantly heating up the pot of complimentary Genmai tea, bringing you more ginger and wasabi...excellent service.
