“Best sushi in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

While this place is a little pricier than others, I have found the quality of their sushi to be better than anywhere else and their service is always top notch.

“Definately Best Sushi in Victoria among the top in Vancouver when considering price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have been to all restaurants in Victoria and it is difficult to find good cuisine. I also find tripadvisor rating system not the most reliable simply because when consumers eat cheap food that is adequate they rate the restaurant high. For me the quality of food comes first, then the price follows, not the other way around. Cook at home if you want cheap.

In any case, the sushi was delicious, the spicy tuna with avacado, the Ikura, the salmon tuna sashimi, and oooohhh the TUNA TATAKI.
It is simply the freshest fish in the city, but they NEED A WEBPAGE so we can order take out.

“Great food and prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was in Victoria for the weekend with my boyfriend and we asked the staff at our hotel for some sushi recommendations. The woman at the front desk recommended Ebizo as one of her favorites, and we were really impressed! The Sushi was VERY fresh and service was quick. It's such a small, funky restaurant too, which makes it especially fun! Their prices are also quite reasonable compared to other high-end sushi spots. We will definitely go there again then next time we are in Victoria!

“Excellent food, perfunctory service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I have been to this restaurant many times. The food is consistently excellent but the service, while reasonably efficient, is always cold and distant, bordering on mildly hostile. But the food is good enough to keep going back.

“Possibly the best sushi in Victoria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

My wife and I recently ate at Ebizo on a busy Friday night and agree that it may be the best sushi place in Victoria. Their sushi tastes great and is extremely fresh. While their sushi menu is limited compared to bigger restaurants, each roll tastes completely different as opposed to some sushi places where it all tastes the same. The service there is great and the price can't be beat.
Our dinner with appy's, drinks and LOTS of sushi was just over $100.
I have also gone there for lunch which can be between $10-$20.
The restaurant is small so I strongly recommend making reservations.
The only down side to this place is that they have a limited Sake menu - no biggie.
FYI - My favorite roll there is the spicy salmon and avocado.
This place is worth trying if you have never been there so you can see for yourself.
