The staff are as always extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and sake, which I had for the first time. Delicious! I usually give 5 stars but on this occasion can only give 4 for as the main meal which I have had on a previous occasions was not enjoyable. The pork had been cut into tiny chunks and was dry. Previously it was beautifully juicy rose slices which melted in the mouth. I had taken a friend who was visiting and recommended it but we were both disappointed. However the starters were fabulous. Gyoza and soft shell crab. I would still recommend Arigato and will continue to visit but would definitely enquire as to the cooking of the pork before ordering. Thanks for a lovely time 😊

My husband and I went for a second time to Arigato last night to celebrate our anniversary.The complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival was a lovely gesture. The food was delicious with plenty to choose from especially for me as I’m vegan. I had a Katsui curry and my husband had a beef dish both delicious. Staff are friendly and polite and service was very good. The restaurant was quite busy for a Wednesday evening and ambiance was perfect. We had an excellent evening and we would highly recommend Arigato.

Third time we’ve been here and, if anything, the food was even better. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and quick. Decent pause between starter and main. Overall, fantastic evening and would highly recommend.

Excellent food and service. Our vegan choice based on my partner's preferences. I really enjoyed both courses. Going back soon.
