Superb quality sushi, interesting selection of fish. Cooked food is excellent, good variety. A bit slow preparing sushi. Service is attentive.

We almost did not give this place a try for lunch given the bad review, but decided to check it out anyways. We were glad we did! Although it's a bit pricey, you get what you pay for. It was very tasty.

Always good food, service is great. I really like their vege rolls, love that they cater to gluten-free diners.

Great sushi in Santa Ynez valley. Service was excellent, menu has a wide variety of food and drink. The sea food was fresh and presentation was beautiful. Our first time here but we are already thinking of a return visit.

There's no reason to go anywhere else in the County for sushi! Jina, owner and sushi chef is a master! The fish is fresh and the rolls and specials are so creative. My favorites are the A-Ru Roll, Red Dragon Roll and the Spider Roll. Jina's sushi always melts in my mouth. Service is impeccable!

This is fresh, well prepared, tasty, yummy and I could go on. Anyone who says this place is not good has no taste. Nice and clean inside and the staff is attentive. Great sushi and sashimi for any location. Easy parking and easy on and off the freeway. Perfect for the foodie traveler. Some think it is over priced. I... More

Top quality - always fresh & perfectly prepared! I am very selective where I eat sushi & this place is clean, excellent fresh fish & service is friendly. If you have a large group you may want to make a reservation.

Nice to have sushi in this area, and it was ok, not great. We were tired of heavy meals, so it was refreshing to have this option.

For my birthday I was treated to dinner at A-RU and it did not disappoint. Family members ordered a variety of sushi and I chose grilled salmon. The miso soup was very good and the sticky rice with blace sesame seeds was a perfect addition.
