“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Nothing particularly special or truly outstanding, but very good and worth the visit. Fresh, top quality, but not much terribly unusual.

“Sushi!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Ordered 6 different types of California rolls and all of them were delicious! Some of the best I have ever tasted in a sushi restaurant. Price was reasonable considering sushi is always quite expensive. The staff were really helpful in helping me choose a sake and overall service was really good. Restaurant is really cute and can't wait to go back when I am in Santa Barbara.

“Arigato is awesome.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

I am a resident of Santa Barbara and Arigato is unquestionably the best sushi in town if not the best restaurant in town. It rivals anything you might get at Matsuhitsu or Nobu, etc. There is usually a long line so you might have to wait a bit.

“Amazing, creative sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This restaurant is great. The dishes are very inventive and the presentation is beautiful. It is very busy all the time, so the best time to go is early! They have a good wine and sake/beer list, as well. Don't miss the Hot Olive Scallop and the salmon carpaccio. These dishes are flat out fabulous!! The rolls are very good as well. The one downside to this restaurant is that it is very noisy, as it is small and the tables are really packed in. There is also the no reservations policy, making it not an option if you want to eat later and not wait for an hour. But if you're willing to wait, or to eat early, this is THE PLACE! Sitting outside on a warm night can be very romantic, and much quieter.
