This place has a lot of special rolls with unique names. The bento boxes are reasonable. When it's your birthday, they take your picture and put it on their wall. Friendly place

We used to go there a lot, but i feel the sushi is not very fresh anymore. It is also too loud, the kids get all hyped when there is a birthday and the servers all sing- i guess that is the restaurants style but it is annoying after a while. Trying to eat is not easy in that environment.

I have never been motivated to waste my time bad mouthing any establishment until tonight. I love japanese food and like to try numerous restaurants just to change it up. However, after eating at this place, I would never recommend anyone to eat here.

For starters the fish was definitely not fresh. You could tell by the salmon and tuna being relatively dark in color and having a 'fishy' smell (fresh fish doesn't have pungent odor). Generally, I don't order california rolls but my girlfriend got them with her combo that were absolutely disgusting! I find it hard to believe that a japanese restaurant could mess up on something basic as a california roll.

Finally, as I was leaving I found it disturbing that the workers were cleaning the glass over the sushi boats by spraying windex on the glass without regard that the chemicals may land on the food floating below. I would not recommend eating at this restaurant as there are many other quality japanese restaurant. You cannot justify cheap prices with the freshness of raw fish. And if you think it isn't that big of an issue, good luck!

Pros: Seems like a fun place to have a drink

Cons: Low quality fish and sub-par food

We just had dinner there last night and everything was great. The kids enjoy the Chicken and Tempura as well as seeing their pictures on the birthday wall.

Help is friendly, but they get busy and overlook you at times. Just wave your hands at them to get their attention.

Love this place. My daughter loves to sit at the bar and watch the boats float by with the sushi on them. It is very fresh and we have loved everything we have tried. Plenty of food for the price. The lunch prices are great. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is very good.

Fun place, good food and fresh sushi. I have had nothing but good food from here.

The help is friendly but at times can be slow and hard to find someone.

If you are looking for a quite place this is not the place. It can be be very noisy at times but the volume always seems to be on high here.

Other than that, it's very kid friendly.

PROS: good food and sushi
CONS: noisy and slow service

Staff is friendly. Good place to satisfy your sushi craving and not spend a lot of money. You could fill up and dine for 2 people under $20. Sushi selections are also great, I highly recommend!

There's got to be better sushi out there somewhere! I found the servers really nice, the atmosphere is bizzare, but not bothersome, unfortunately the sushi is way below average. I wanted to like this place because it is so close, have been there a few times, but the sushi just isn't up to par.

When you walk into Ariake Sushi, you'd think you're in a disco. The decor is tacky! I am a big fan of sushi and I've tried a lot of Japanese reastaurants. This restaurant is like another sushi boat with tacky decor. The sushi is not fresh, but service was friendly. Will NEVER go back here again!

Ariake is a good source of tasty food at a reasonable price. The feel is very fun and loose! The waiters have been known to do things that make dining more fun. Very non-traditional: Watch out if there's a birthday -- Lights out, smoke on, noise-maker and sake shots! I recommend Ariake for its food if you are unconcerned with how traditional and authentic a restaurant's atmosphere is.
