This is a very good, casual, small outdoor sushi restaurant in the Santa Barbara Harbor. The miso soup is excellent, and the sushi rolls are fresh and delicious. We especially enjoyed their Rainbow Roll. All of the fish was tender and flavorful, and the prices are very reasonable. While sitting outside you are very close to boats, and the breezes... More

That was my first trip to US to Santa Barbara and I collected soooo good sushi memories :)))) I took away some Californian /avocado maki and set next to the ocean and ate :D Amazing taste :) Very very reasonable prices! Compare to Europe cheaper, bigger and taster! :) Really recommend this friendly place!

Have your sushi on a wrought iron table while gazing at the harbor just yards away. Then take a nice Windywalk out to the end of the harbor. Location is everything

Had lunch here after kayaking in the bay. Quick service, fresh and yummy sushi. Sat outside and enjoyed the goings on on the boardwalk.

I have been to this place three times and twice we had a great experience. I had not been there for about a year and then I happened to be in Santa Barbara and decided to stop by. I ordered the combo special I have ordered before. It comes with teriyaki chicken and white rice and one California roll and... More

We were walking around the harbour & were starving so decided to grab lunch, this place was busy & seemed great value so gave it a try. Wow what top quality sushi! Seats outside overlooking the harbour, just perfect. I don't always leave reviews of small canteen type places like this, but it was such a great accidental find I... More

Sushi Go Go is a small hole in the wall concession on the harbour with seats outside. You’re by the water with a beach 50 metres away – the position is perfect , the price is right , the food is tip top, portions are generous and the staff are friendly. I’ve worked in Japan and also eaten in some... More

I love eating outside on the habor and I love sushi so in spite of it's uncomfortable seating this place remains our family's favorite for lunch or a early dinner. I usually have the chirashi, or the Salomon bento, with miso. ,another favorite is the unagi nigiri. I am getting hungry just writing this! Important is that I am never... More

After spending a great weekend in Santa Barbara, we ventured out on to the Marina to check out the sites. This VERY small walk-up sushi place was a great find. We split the sushi burrito the 1st day and came back the 2nd day to re-order the same and included a roll(which was a generous 10 pcs). Reasonably priced. Seating... More

Took my college student and her roommate here, for the first time, after passing by SO many times while visiting the area and patronizing Brophy Brothers, just upstairs. I was pleasantly surprised. What a fun location. It was a Friday night so it was busy and there was a lot of good people watching, which I love. All three of... More
