“Average, although service a little slow!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

The food was yummy, although I found the service to be a tad bit slow. When we first arrived we had been seated right in the middle of the restaurant, super close to a table beside us... although there were lots of other empty 'better' tables around.

We asked if we could move to a table by the window, which we did, but that was a mistake. Our service was VERY slow.

We had gone for the 'All You Can Eat' which was $28.00.
We placed our first order of food, and it was a good 40 minutes before we got ANYTHING. Then they came very far and few between. My spouse got 3 of his items/plates before I had gotten anything.

The food was of good quality, and we enjoyed it when we received it, but considering we had gone for our date night, it was a bit disappointing that we waited so long in the beginning. It put a bit of a damper on the start to our evening.

Overall, good food, with more room for improvement with service.

“Lunch, dinner, decor, service, they have it all covered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

This is our favourite restaurant! The restauran has modern, clean lines, very quick to serve and the food is delicious and all this at a VERY reasonable cost!? AWESOME.

We can afford to take the family there. We head there when we want a quick lunch or dinner before a show, it fits the bill every time! The bento box is so filling and such a great price. The tuna/salmon sashimi is soo good and I love their edamame beans too! Hot and tasty!

We don't find many favourites but this is definitely the one!

“Should be the number one rated sushi in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

The address listed is wrong. They have moved to Blanshard St. The absolute best California roll in the city, the fish is always fresh, the Toro Sashimi is excellent and the prices are reasonable. You must try the miso cod, so much flavour and steaming hot. If you go, sit at the sushi bar, the owner, Tony, is there most nights making the food delicious!

“Overcooked rice, poor service. Better sushi places elsewhere in Victoria.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2010

We ordered the dynamite maki and spider roll and the rice was so overcooked/oversteamed that it made the seaweed soggy. One of the worst things you can do with sushi is oversteam the rice making it gummy but all our rolls were that way. The service was terrible as well. There were about 4 waitresses and they stood around just chatting with each other and we literally had to verbally flag one down to repeat orders and requests placed earlier. Not a fun experience.

I think for the price, quality and service there are so many other places in Victoria (?sp Sen Sushi was so much better).

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2008

This restaurant is my boyfriend's favourite Japanese spot to hit when we visit Victoria. The dragon, mexican and dynamite rolls are delicious, and it doesn't hurt with the 10% discount on Sundays. Usually a meal for two is about $20 for us.
