It is sad that the ocean is so close and the sushi is not that good in this town. One of the most expensive rolls with the most fish, was cornered in fried crunchiness - possibly to hide the lack of attention to fresh fish that should be the highlight of the sushi.

Every year I go here when I visit Santa Barbara, VERY friendly staff, one server has the BEST smile I've seen, worth it just to see her smile!!! Enjoyed the avocado/cucumber roll, seaweed salad, & ice green tea, VERY accommodating!!!

The service and food were good. It's not the best sushi but it was pretty good. I loved sitting outside. It was also nice to have a decent glass of wine with sushi. Great service.

Went for a quick bite, not a full dinner. Fresh sushi, very good tempura. Hubby had some tuna rolls and snapper. I loved the tempura. The customer service was excellent. We were served by not just one server but many. They were all friendly and upbeat. Vibrant crowd, college type hangout I think but not rowdy. Fun place to go.

Go-to japanese restaurant for Teryaki and sushi. Particular favorites: Ginger Pork (awesome if you are really hungry), Yellowtail Kama (grilled Yellowtail shoulder -- delicate and good flavor if they have it), Chiriashi and Eel Bowls (sushi bowls that are a variety or Eel specific), Spicy Edamame. Both sushi bar and floor, restaurant is a bit tight but food is worth... More

We order take out here 1-2 times a month. We love it. The California roles are really good! And overall quality is good. I find the sashimi pieces just too big. Good quality but they are overwhelmingly big so it takes away from the overall experience. But bottom line, good sushi for a reasonable price.

Although we were in a 8 people table the food was served always on big plates, hard to reach across the table to pick a roll...let`s not talk about service then, food is great, fresh and well done, I will be going back there, hard to find good japonese restaurants.

Crappy service, marginal food. You can do better. I've been there several times and each time it's been a new level of disappointment. It's the Taco Bell of sushi. you should just stay away and you'll really will be better off. Not good.

Good sushi, decent atmosphere, reasonable price. Start with the edamame and then follow it up with the rainbow and tiger rolls.

Ever since the remodel the food seems to have improved, or is that just me? I'm not a big time 'traditional' sushi person...all those raw things and eggs spilling out aren't necessarily for me. I really enjoy their special rolls, with avocado, but my favorite at ST is the shrimp tempura hand roll. Theirs is well prepared, with the spicy... More
