Best Sushi in Vic

Amazing, fresh and authentic but get there early if you want a table. The most authentic Japanese restaurant in town, and the price tag matches their quality but worth it.

We go there quite often and they have never disappointed us. Tasty, fresh and elegant food. The servers are always really friendly. It is often quite busy so it is better to make a reservation.

We got a table after another 10 minutes. The food was amazing: big portion, very fresh (sushi) but the main... More

This was my first time at Ebizo. Thursday night was very busy; we got the last table for two. Superb team service at great prices! No charge for green tea. Dumplings were only average, but crab tempura were stellar! We tried Rainbow Roll, Dynamite Roll and some sashimi. I'd go back in a heartbeat! Was lined up outside the door... More

We have been there twice, great sushis and japanese food. Nigiri are made the right way, few rice and nice piece of fish. Wine list could be improved. The service is good. You should go there early and book in advance as the place is small and get filled fast. Also, apparently the kitchen is closing around 8.45pm so be... More

Awesome sushi menu. Really nice to be able to try so many different ones as you buy by the piece. Great place for friends, the only thing is how small it is and when it closes. there is almost always a wait to get in and they close at 8:45pm.

Ebizo by far have the best tuna tataki! Always fresh and consistent with their homemade ponzu sauce! So many great things to have. A few of my favourites: fresh oysters, baked oyster, chop chop scallop, smoked duck,Ricky roll. It's a must when visiting Victoria if you love Japanese food. Been going there for 20 years.
