“Used to be wonderful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went to this restaurant April 27th to celebrate our daughters BIG birthday. This is a place where she just loved as a young girl, and so did we. It burned down a few years ago, but was rebuilt nearby. There are now 3 in the Bay area. This one is in Carrollwood in Tampa. Well, being with the family (7 of us ) was GREAT. That was the only thing great. The chef was adorably funny, but didn't even cook the rice through...my scallps were rubber. Gordon Ramsey would be furious! :) And the "yum yum" sauce- YUCK! Straight Mayo- awful. We are never going back. A shame. Really, truly a shame. We do not advise anyone go. The decor was lovely though.

“Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Food was good but extremely pricey even with a coupon. It would be better to go with a group rather than as a couple because you end up sitting with strangers.

“Great hibachi experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

My friends and I had a really good time at Arigato in Tampa during a recent golf trip. All eight of us were able to enjoy sitting around the grill and watching an entertaining display...which resulted in a pretty tasty meal. Would definitely return.

“Best of both worlds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Atmosphere and entertainment are quite enjoyable and the food is phenomenal. It is prepared right in front of you and special requests are graciously accommodated. It is a place for young and old alike. My husband and I joined the email club and get a free birthday and anniversary coupon every year and we happily redeem them each time.
