Great lunch!

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...

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.

We have been to The Sushi Spot a number of times and it is always consistently good. It is one of a few very good sushi Restaurants in Arcata and a local favorite. They know what they are doing and the ingredients are always fresh and full of flavor. Recommended.x

The Sushi Spot is a great choice for lunch or dinner. The Arcata restaurant is located on the plaza downtown and despite other competitive sushi restaurants nearby, they always seem to be busy. The menu is extensive, lots of options. The rolls are fresh and delicious. Great sake too! Very friendly, helpful waitstaff.
