food is still very good but the atmosphere of the new place not so good - crowded, lack of charm, felt like a McDonalds inside

I've been going to Itsuki for years and was concerned the move would change everything I love about the restaurant. Well, happily, the move has only made them better. Great food, as always, and nicely renovated restaurant to go with it.

Japanese food in santa barbara. They have just moved locations from SB to goleta and right now service is suffering. However its the same staff just a larger area for them to cover. Im sure it will work out fine. The food is authentic and delicious. A great choice and good value for japanese food, which can get expensive sometimes.

I stop in here now and then. I always get a simple Bento Box for lunch.
Never been disappointed. Very nicely priced and good service. Never had dinner there.

One of the very best sushi restaurants in town without being one of the most expensive. Don't judge a book by its cover; the strip mall it's in will scare you away, but it's quite nice inside. Service is friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

Tip: Ask for brown rice sushi at dinner. The rolls don't hold together as well, but are SO much healthier. I don't know why more restraurants don't offer this option.

If I could change one thing about this restaurant, it would be the horrible "mumbly soft pop" versions of muzak. Really really terrible! I have to tune it out whenever I'm there. Last year they were playing some light jazz music which created a wonderful ambiance, but no more. Perhaps they're trying to get the tables to turn over faster ?!
