Yummy sushi and rice

You have to try the house special fried rice. Comes with cilantro and jalapeño! Great if you love spicy dishes. My husband and I both had sushi and it was great. Nice atmosphere and lovely waitress. Will definitely return.

We've been there twice. The decor is very pleasant in Japanese style. The sushi is the best we've had in the greater Sarasota area. The menu is extensive. Brown rice is offered as an option, which two of our companions enjoyed. One of our companions had the tofu teriyaki, which was excellent. The miso soup is very good. We are... More

The food was average at best , and that's being kind , no flavor whatsoever and even the "spicy" items... More

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
