“Imitation sushi!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

I was not happy with their sushi, they put too much on it. And the crab tasted like imitation crab. The sushi maker was watching tv on his computer when we walked in, not professional service.

“Great sushi at a good price!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Nice little Sushi place. The quality was good as was the price. I've paid a lot more for similar sushi. Nice atmosphere too.

(The "men's room" could use a little attention though!)

“One of my favorite places in a foodie college town”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I've been going to Arigato ever since it opened right on the main street (Pleasant Street) in downstown Amherst and it's always been a happy experience. You can count on good service and high-quality sushi, as well as other great (and healthy) Japanese cuisine.

“Much better than expected”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

This past weekend we visited the Pioneer Valley for my daughter's college graduation. Since she was the honored person, the choice of restaurant was up to her. I must admit I don't eat sushi but she assured me this place was great and they serve a variety of offerings. Well from the warm and professional staff, the cleanliness of the main area and washroom, the optional dishes from other countries the night was a rausing success. Sometimes you have to be a bit adventureous about trying new possible sources of satisfaction.
