Reviews for Arigato Sushi

For years before the pandemic, several of us ate together at Arigato because it was the best sushi place in town. We went back last night for the first time after the lockdown: we were looking forward to a special meal. Major disappointment. The restaurant has changed completely. The food was lousy, the service terrible, and when we got there they told us in a kind of insulting way that we'd have to leave within an hour and a half. We were happy to leave within the hour and full review
I don't often get the chance to go here, and used to think they were overpriced, but when my boyfriend's family came into town I decided to bring them here. It did not disappoint! My boyfriend and I got Kumamoto oysters, 2 special rolls, and the premium 5. The oysters were so fresh and tasty, and the quality of the fish on the premium 5 was spectacular! We got the crab melt and Dracula rolls for the special rolls, and those were excellent as well, but my favorite was full review
Went here for an early father's day dinner. We were able to snag an day-of early reservation at 5pm which was great. It was very busy as it was a Saturday night. Given that, the service was still good although I felt the food came out slower than expected. The food was good, especially the unagi (eel)! The soft shell crab was also excellent but they didn't provide enough ponzu dipping sauce. The salmon skin roll and shrimp tempura rolls were just ok. Nothing amazing and full review
