Nice cooking tables, good authentic sushi

Very authentic taste, but, not your econo-sushi (all you can eat) type of experience. Solid Tepanyaki!

We have been going to the Villa for several years now and it never disappoints. The staff are so fun and friendly. The food is delicious and we prefer the teppanyaki. The fried rice is the best I've ever had. Fantastic value too.

Waited 10mins for someone to take my drink order and when she saw the annoyance on my face said sorry we are busy! NO they were not! Finally when we placed our food order after 15mins it never came. We waited and waited for food that usually comes out in 10mins. After more than 30 mins we got up and... More

I should start out by saying that I made reservations over a month in advance for the teppenyaki table (I've always called this hibachi) having heard several good reviews by word of mouth. When we got to the restaurant, the table was full, only 4 chairs left for us... not in front of the grill. Having been the one who... More

We went here for lunch a few days ago, and ordered the salmon bento box and mixed vegetable curry dishes. Both of them had the same vegetables comprising of zucchini, broccoli and carrots. The zucchini was cooked right, but the broccoli and carrots were barely even lightly steamed. The carrots were finger sized. They were still very crunchy. The food... More

I have been to the Villa on a few occasions with my boyfriend, who introduced me to it. The service has never been outstanding but not terrible either. And it's some of the better quality sushi I've had in Durham. Last night, however, was abysmal and will be my last visit. My boyfriend and I arrived shortly before 9pm. The... More

I've eaten at all the sushi places in Whitby. This place is the best in my opinion. They offer a great variety, fast service and very well priced. My husband and I can have a meal with a couple drinks including tip for $60. It tastes great! I always have sushi and mix up my selections a bit for variety.... More

I have been eating in the Villa for years. I agree with some people when they say that there is not much attention from the servers and the contact with them although pleasant is very limited. I myself do not go there to be entertained or being very important. I go there for years to enjoy fantastic food and most... More
