Reviews for Teru Japanese Cuisine

Went in Mercato for a late but a light dinner. The bread and lentil/olive dip were absolutely wonderful.I ordered the caperse salad and the quality of the cheese was great, the tomatoes could have been more ripe but still enjoyed it a lot, just delicious I wish there was more basil on it. I didn't try any of the main entrees so no comments there.The service was great and everyone was very helpful.

This sushi is amazing! We have been ordering "whatever Teru suggests" for years now, starting back at his Sakana days. Not only does he deliver the most delicious sushi experience, he takes the time to remember what his locals love the most and incorporates that into the next dining experience. On top of it all, he's a fun person to talk to and get to know! If this is your first time at Teru's, do yourself a favor and order whatever sushi/nigiri he recommends that day.

Ate here last night for the first time and my only regret is not going sooner. The nigiri/sashimi quality is the best in Santa Barbara. The fish melts in your mouth, and they use some very unique sauces/flavor combinations as well. The service was fantastic. I'll be going back again soon.
