My favorite is salmon teriyaki and their strawberry salad. I could go to downtown Santa Barbara and get the same for a lot more money and... read more

Every time I visit Goleta/Santa Barbara area, I always detour to this restaurant. The food is always fresh with plentiful portions and prices very reasonable. My favorite is salmon teriyaki and their strawberry salad. I could go to downtown Santa Barbara and get the same for a lot more money and less "hometown" service.

Goleta Sushi House has great, personal service, good sushi and rolls, and FANTASTIC teriyaki salmon. Service is quick and friendly and the prices are very reasonable for the HUGE amount of food you get.

Not elaborate or fancy. Service is ok. It wasn't crowded on a Tuesday night. I ordered two rolls, sushi house roll and salmon skin roll and an iced green tea ( it was actually green). The rolls were huge. Don't expect any atmosphere or a tv. It was really quite. Not sure I would go back. But it was an... More

We arrived just after 6pm and they were rearranging a table for 6-8 people (you can call ahead), as a result, we had to wait, and we're debating whether to find another place since we were on a tight schedule, and it didn't look like anyone was leaving soon. We were asked by multiple people how many in our group... More

We went around the vicinity and ended up eating at this Sushi restaurant. I don't think I have ever got that big plate of Sashimi before. Maybe because it was late and they just wanted to clear the refrigerator from Fish. Had a couple of cold Japanese beers to the fish. Very friendly staff

Well, when it comes to sushi, I'm no easy critic. The good: *We ordered salmon sashimi for $10 and literally the portions had to of been worth at least $15 or more. *Hot sake was great. *Their green tea ice cream is killer. *The older asian lady was so, so sweet. The not so good: *All of our rolls, especially... More

Food may be good (never had an opportunity to eat) but not providing any service to a customer sitting for 20 minutes not acceptable. Left before order could be taken so cannot comment on the cuisine. El Pollo Rico down the street great Mexican food.

My boyfriend randomly found this place and decided to stop in. The owner was so incredibly sweet and now she has remembered us each time. She will often surprise us with a special dish, just something small to snack in, and it is always so delicious and such a sweet gesture. The fish is always delicious and the rolls have... More

Some times a hole in the wall restaurant can be very rewarding. This one is a big "Not" Located in a mid-seedy location, near other small businesses in a low light area, it is a bit intimidating-but, what the heck, for good sushi it might be worth it. "Not". Inside, the small tables are crunched together. The service was very... More

Great local restaurant in old town Goleta. Family owned. The food is good and reasonably priced. It is very popular with the locals for sushi. When I went with a group from work, I had the Bento Box and it was delicious. Lots of food and it comes with Miso soup which was delicious. The rest of the group loved... More
