We are locals and have been to Arigato more than a few times now. It definitely gets my vote for best sushi around - and the service has always been very friendly as well.

This is my daughter's favorite restaurant! I don't like sushi but ordered their rice and shrimp. Plenty of food served but I would have liked the shrimp larger than being so small that you couldn't even see them. Other than that, a pleasant lunch.

Greasy sushi tempura appetizer. Big greasy slabs of zucchini, sweet potato, white potato came with it. Main course we ordered a bento-style box which contained more of the same. Sushi roll rice was sub-standard and warm: it is supposed to be cold.

Usually in menus as chirashi, the dish is simply various forms of sashimi over rice. The first time I ordered it was in NYC about 30 years ago, and I was happily surprised. Initially, I was thinking I was tired, and it would be easier...More
