Great option near everything!

I love Sushi Spot. Their chefs are talented and the decor and room are comfortable, especially now that they've expanded twice as wide. For sushi in Arcata this is the ONLY option, since the other sushi restaurant is out of the way and doesn't serve alcohol. Can't speak to the other's cuisine... read more

Recently expanded but still packed. Best sushi spot I have been to anywhere; no pun intended. Many nooks to sit in, bar stools, or larger tables. Great for a quick bite or to languish over the delights.

An Awsome change in pace from the usual Arcata dining options. Sushi is prepared with some unique pairings that add new life to old favorites. The ambiance is great, the parking is typically Arcata tough....

We went here hungry and ordered two plates of sushi each. That was a mistake! We had way too much food, but it was some of the best sushi I have eaten, and was good at home from the doggie bag.

this is our favorite sushi spot ....always consistent, great sushi chefs, friendly, wonderful selection of rolls and combination of flavors. Great value and something for everyone. Have patience when going there, it is located in a College town and they don't take reservations. They are accommodating and will text or call you when your table is ready if there is... More

Read reviews before going and we were not disappointed; the food here was great. On a Tuesday night the place was really bumping with locals - always a good sign - but we didn't have to wait to be seated. Our waitress answered all our questions about menu items and most popular suggestions, and we weren't disappointed with her recommendations.... More

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

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. Can''t exactly remember everything I ordered but the food was decent. The rolls were a tad on the small side,... 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!
