good, fun, and different

after reading all the positive reviews on multiple sites, i decided to catch an early dinner here on a day trip to santa barbara. i’m glad i did, as the food was overall quite good, the fish fresh, and the menu offered a wide variety of unique dishes and rolls. prices ranged from mostly moderate to occasionally high. i ate on the sidewalk patio, which was a bit chilly but bearable and the place overall was amazingly casual, yet still vibrant and fun.
on another note, we got here about 5 min after it opened on a saturday night, and it was already packed! we couldn’t believe it.

"Standing Room Only" at Arigato Sushi Bar

"Standing Room Only"

refreshing bite-size avocado pieces infused w/a delicious, fruity (peach? mango?) flavor. for $9 bucks it’s a bit steep and you’ll still be hungry after, but it’s enough to split b/w 2 as a starter.

Eskimo Roll at Arigato Sushi Bar

Eskimo Roll

this is one of the few raw salmon sushi rolls i could find on the ecletic menu, and although there aren’t too many slices, it’s surprisingly good. definitely would order again.

Rock'n Roll at Arigato Sushi Bar

Rock'n Roll

i suppose this would be the closest roll to your typical rainbow roll. nothing wow-ing, but w/the crab being actual minced crab, it’s a solid roll.

sweeeet - Choya Plum Wine at Arigato Sushi Bar

Choya Plum Wine

incredibly sweet, but for me, not a good complement to the sushi rolls. probably wouldn’t order this again when ordering sushi rolls.

It's the best sushi I've ever had in my life....

It’s the best sushi I’ve ever had in my life. I highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar and asking the chef to just go nuts. Also, get the mushroom miso – and, of course, the house sake.

By far one of the best sushi spots in Santa Barbara. Where there is money, there are sushi enthusiasts and Arigato is where I take dates for dinner when Sushi gets the call on our first outing. The place is always packed, always good, always clean, service is friendly, a pretty good location, the chefs are top notch and they will make you specialty orders if you ask for them. Sit outside on a warm clear night, and your date will know that you appreciate her company.
