So I read the few reviews on this place and thought it had potential before going in. I’m from the gulf coast of the USA and got used to some good sushi/Japanese in Houston and New Orleans, but this place is the best sushi I’ve...ever had. Not wanting to sound dramatic, but, if you like authentic high quality Japanese/Asian and sushi then give this place a try. We planned to leave town this morning but will leave instead this afternoon just because we want to eat lunch here again!!! To the chef/owner, please don’t leave Jaco. Jaco needs you. I live in San Isidro in Perez Zeledon and hope you will always be here when we make a short trip vacation to Jaco. We might come here now just for your restaurant!More
I love this restaurant and the super friendly staff. I have been in Jaco for couple of years so I know that this place is a great find. The chicken Katsudon is amazing, it's cooked in this sauce that makes the texture so soft it...melts in your mouth.
I had some friends come and visit and I told them to try the Katsudon their first night in Costa Rica. Of course they loved it. We travelled all around the country and this meal is what we talked about every single day.
It's a must try if you are in Jaco. And with a Japanese chef/ owner, it doesn't make sense to try Japanese food anywhere but here!More
We love coming to Jaco Beach and we always make it to Arigato’s for lunch or dinner. We have known the owner , Rudy , for many years and have had him cater at our condo a couple times. Excellent sushi and the best in...this area.More
Date of visit: March 2019

Thank you so much for your great review. We are so happy to hear you had good time with us. We appreciate so much. Hope to see you soon.
If you are a susi lover and want the authentic product, Rudy at Arigato is the man to see. Rudy is a Japanese expat who has been doing spicy tuna rolls among other rolls for well over a decade now in Jaco. He was the...original chef at Jaco's first and largest sushi restaurant and left there some years ago to branch out on his own. The food is truly amazing, the ambiance is fairly laid back and the company is usually wonderful when the place isn't too busy.More
We love this sushi place! It’s right off the busy part of town and offers outdoor open seating. Perfect for people watching and you don’t feel claustrophobic. The rolls are great and they offer Asian beer. Rudy is from Japan so he knows sushi! This...place is very reasonably priced and it doesn’t have blasting music like some other overly expensive places that can’t compare.More
I went here for my birthday dinner with husband and I can't say we left unhappy, but I also can't say I'd go back. The staff were the highlight of our visit and certainly made me feel special on my birthday. The potstickers were a...good start and I was excited for my 2 for 1 tuna rolls, until I realized why they were 2 for 1 - not exactly they best tuna I've had. Ill be trying the many other sushi options in Jaco before I go back here.More
