Sushi is all about freshness for me. In addition, my wife and I always order a squid salad to start and Bushido's is superb. Their nigiri is fresh and the pieces are large. They even have Uni on the menu which you don't find at all sushi restaurants. Service was excellent as well. Not much atmosphere but when you're eating... More

We dined at Bushido for the first time last evening. We were pleasantly surprised with their private parking in the busy downtown Venice area. The restaurant is small but clean and comfortable. They gave each of us three menus which was a bit confusing because they seemed to replicate each other. We ordered and shortly after our meal arrived. The... More

Bushido has never been my favorite for sushi. I'm not a true sushi expert. I only eat certain rolls which tend to be more veggie than fish. But, I have ordered their "cooked" meals. Been there more than once. I would say their food is a step above mediocre. Since I live in Venice, it's convenient if we're downtown shopping... More

Two of us ate dinner here on October 9, 2014. We were nicely welcomed upon entering and srvice was good. The yellow wfin sushi I had was nicely served and very good. The crispy duck, which looked good on the menu, was over done and dry, also way too many vegetables on the plate. My dinner partner had a very... More

While the servers were polite, it took 30 min to get drinks (water) and over an hour to get our meals. We had to remind our server twice about 2 different dishes she had forgotten. We got an appetizer at the end of the meal finally. This was on a Sunday night and the restaurant was about 3/4 full. Food... More

Bushidos has a cool, zen atmosphere. You can watch the chefs prepare the sushi at the sushi bar. The food is delicious. Very fresh and very tasty. They offer brown rice if you want. There is also a full menu for those who are not sushi fans. The staff is friendly and helpful. Great prices. A destination for all our... More
