“Definitely Worth Going Out of the Way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Very good! It was late in the evening when we went, and we were quite pleased in their promptness with sending out our sushi. Having said that, it was put together in a bit of a sloppy manner, which made it a bit difficult to eat. Still, it was just what we were in the mood for. Their late hours (open until 10) was especially beneficial, as they were the only sushi place in the area that was still open.

Incredible salad! I loved the salad dressing. The traditional Japanese dressing, but with an additional depth. I never figured out the extra ingredient, but it's worth going back to figure it out for sure.

“My Fairfax Go-To Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I am frequently all over Northern VA for one reason or another, so when I am in Fairfax, I eat at Arigato. The fish is always fresh, the restaurant is clean and presentable, and everyone is very friendly. A few years ago I got into a scary car accident (walked away fine) and my mom offered to take me out to eat and relax and try to calm down to process it all. Since we were nearby Arigato, she took me there, and they offered me tea and some soup on the house so I could unwind, and were very accomodating while we were there. It was a nice touch, and I have been back time and again ever since.

“Always enjoy my meal here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have dined here about a half a dozen times. The food is always fresh and spot on for Japanese/Korean Cuisine.

I enjoy their bento boxes which are boxes that separate the food in partitions. I believe lunch is the best value for the bento box, I normally get their chicken teriyaki bento box which comes with soup, salad, rice, tempura, California rolls and other little condiments like pickled vegetables. The price for this bento box is $11.95 which compared to other places is quite a good value.

Dinner on the other hand is a little more pricey but, they offer more selections during dinner with their bento boxes such is Sushi bento, chicken bento, beef bento etc.

The place is small but, they do put out great food and fast.

As a matter of fact I am planning on eating here this coming weekend for dinner.

Highly recommend this place.

“It really is the best Japanese restaurant around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

I was introduced to this wonderful restaurant years ago when my best friend and her full-Japanese mother invited me out to lunch (yummy bento!). This is where Japanese people go for good food and sushi! I have been to other restaurants throughout the area, and none have ever even closely measured up to my love for Arigato. They have a very authentic menu of all the best-loved Japanese staples, and their sushi really is the best. I dream about their roll that has kiwi on top of it - seriously to die for! They have very good yakisoba, ramen, tempura, you name it.

The service is also exceptional. They pack up our leftovers and always include little cups of the appropriate sauces for each!

I love this place!

My husband and I eat at this restaurant about 2 times a month and have for over 10 years. Service is very attentive and we've never had a bad meal.
