I think even better than Santa Barbara Arigato Sushi I went to earlier this week (hear same fish supplier) Just a simple GOOD local sushi place run by a delightful Vietnamese lady! Sashimi so fresh and best miso soup not the usual bland taste. Very happy and will return

Good, fresh sushi at reasonable prices with excellent service. Lacking in atmosphere, but who cares?

Vihn is the sweetest person ever, and has ease of connecting with anyone. The food was fresh & excellent. The atmosphere cozy, and the place has been here 10 years. There is also a special table there (ask Vinh)-- she's also known as "Mama". If you have a gluten allergy let Vihn know as she is knowledgeable about it as... More

I have lived in Goleta/Santa Barbara for 20 years and have never been more in love with sushi until I found this place. Goleta Sushi House has amazing sushi at a great price. Their staff is friendly and attentive and the owner is there to take care of my table every time I go. The portions are large, the plating... More

I thought this was a good value restaurant. The fish was surprisingly good for a little hole in the wall. the rolls were ok, but you did get a lot of sushi for the price.

The location is not the best, and the decor is plain. But the food was really good, portions quite large, and prices very reasonable. The fish was really fresh and tasty. Staff are polite and attentive. The lady who runs the place was around and we had a nice chat with her. If you go here, check out the Monarch... More

Not being a fan of Sushi but have been several times. The staff (Vin specifically) is awesome, ensuring that your food is not only correct, but properly prepared. Their variety of different sushi rolls make with the freshest fish possible are good and this can definitely be a dining adventure. It does get warm inside this small secluded place so... More

The food here is always fresh and the service is generally pretty good. For the price it’s a nice little sushi house. Sure there’s no elaborate décor but the food and price more than make up for this. If you’re looking for a good sushi house you can’t go wrong here.

When a colleague brought me to this small family restaurant recently for lunch I was initially skeptical, but the terrific food and attentive service definitely won me over. The lunch special of the day was a yellowtail kama (the cheeks, or collar of the fish). This meal started with a sweet coleslaw and mango salad and a large bowl of... 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.
