This is a great place to grab a casual bite with friends or associates. There is a great variety of sushi options and the food is always fresh. I also love the Avocado salad (sometimes not listed on the menu- but ask for it! It's an unpretentious atmosphere and it's not too pricey. Overall, this is a very good place... More

In town for business and we wanted sushi. This is a great find. Tuna, yellowtail, California roll, dragon roll, even tried eel for the first time. It is great! From the miso soup to the great beer. A great taste of Japan. Try it, you will not regret it

If you like large, delicious, tender, fresh, protein-packed rolls, you will really enjoy Goleta Sushi House. This small, family-run restaurant is in Old Goleta, and is not pretentious in any way. From the minute you enter the restaurant you realize that it is all about the food -- ample, intentional, and delicious. The salmon is especially good (and this is... More

Great place to stop and have a bite. Small, yet very cozy little place. Very friendly people working there. Great service, friendly waitress, great food. The fish on the rolls was extremely tasty, fresh, and firm. We ordered some thing I think they called it Sushi Pizza, it had scallops on top of it, my son also ordered the rainbow... More

Enjoyed my first visit here. GREAT sushi. Large rolls. Fantastic service. The restaurant isn't fancy. In fact it's a bit of a "hole in the wall" but if you just want good sushi and great service I recommend you try it.

I think even better than Santa Barbara Arigato Sushi I went to earlier this week (hear same fish supplier) Just a simple GOOD local sushi place run by a delightful Vietnamese lady! Sashimi so fresh and best miso soup not the usual bland taste. Very happy and will return

Vihn is the sweetest person ever, and has ease of connecting with anyone. The food was fresh & excellent. The atmosphere cozy, and the place has been here 10 years. There is also a special table there (ask Vinh)-- she's also known as "Mama". If you have a gluten allergy let Vihn know as she is knowledgeable about it as... More
