ARIGATO Japanese Steak and Seafood House in Greensboro, North Carolina – Restaurant Review

ARIGATO is a restaurant that I have been wanting to try going to for a long time now. I finally went to Arigato Japanese restaurant with my family this week. We enjoy the cuisine from many different countries and cultures and often find Japanese food to taste so fresh and amazing.

The Japanese food at this restaurant, Arigato is so delicious!! I had the idea to go to Arigato Japanese restaurant on the evening of the Fourth of July because we can get a really good view of professional quality fireworks in that area. Indeed, the plan worked! I loved eating at Arigato Japanese Restaurant.

We enjoyed a splendid dinner at Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House from about 7:45-8:45pm on the evening of the 4th of July and when we exited the restaurant building after our meal, we were able to see some amazing fireworks right in that same area. It was wonderful! The kids loved the exciting fireworks!

Now back to talking about the restaurant itself. My much anticipated visit to the restaurant, Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House did not disappoint in the least. I am so glad that we finally went to that Japanese restaurant. We did not waste any of our delicious food from the restaurant. We brought home our leftovers from the Arigato Japanese restaurant in to - go boxes at the end of our meal and as we walked in the door of our home we were still remarking about what a marvelous time we had at Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House restaurant.

Dinner at Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House on the 4th of July

All of the food selections at Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House were fresh and tasty. We ended up going beyond our food budget and ordering a bit more than we had planned to because everything on the restaurant foodmenu looked so good!

I have spoken in past restaurant reviews that I have written about how I do not always purchase kids meals for my kids when we go to restaurants. Sometimes, it seems like a more cost effective, better deal to just let them share and adult sized entrée but on this 4th of July occasion, I did go ahead and purchase kid’s meals / children’s entrees for them. The children’s entrees at Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House are a good deal with generous serving sizes. The portion of the children’s entrée special was offered at a cost of $8.75. One of my sons wanted the chicken fried rice children’s entrée. My other son wanted the steak fried rice children’s entrée.

I ordered an adult sized entrée special of grouper fish and petit filet steak with fried rice at a cost of around $18. At Arigato Japanese Steak and Seafood House, the appetizers and add-on specials are quite reasonably priced for a restaurant of its caliber. This is where we ran into trouble. We were more or less saying: “Ooh, I want some of that and some of that and some of that.” It was ridiculous! What we ended up getting in addition to our entrees and specialty drinks of non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiris ($3.50 each) and non-alcoholic Pina coladas ($3.50 each) were

  • calamari at an add-on cost of just $4
  • shrimp tempura at around $3 and
  • California roll at around $3.

Everything was scrumptious!

Non alcoholic Pina Colada topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry - very tasty

  • The chef did lots of tricks and really put on a show with the knife cutting and prepping of the vegetables and other foods.
  • We were seated at a large table with other diners including a young lady celebrating her 19th birthday with two of her friends. The flames shot up high on the hot surface as is often part of the demonstration at these types of hibachi restaurant set ups. We were very impressed.

Hi RedElf, thanks so much for your nice comment. I appreciate it. I did treasure getting that camera shot at just the right moment. The fire only flares up like that for a very brief moment during the Japanese cooking demonstration at the restaurant. I hope that you do get to Arigato one day. The food is great!
