Came here during a recent trip from Los Angeles and like the other reviewer, I agree that Arigato beats most of the sushi joints in L.A. We were there on a Saturday night & boy was it jam-packed. We thought we'd have to wait forever & were going to go somewhere else when we saw all the folks waiting & all the taken tables in the little outdoor sidewalk area, but they actually had a table for two, which was perfect. Indeed, the place is super-cramped, but it's still a cool scene - lots of people-watching and the rolls go on for days -- cucumber wraps, lots of avocado & really buttery salmon, just the way i like it. Definitely will be coming back on my next trip to SB.
Pros: Rolls, rolls & more rolls
Cons: No elbow room, long waits at times
