“Authentic Japanese food in a nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The name Sen Zushi (A thousand sushis' ) may overstate just how many sushis' you can get at this delightful restaurant but the food is excellent and the atmosphere very cosy and warm.

We visited one night recently along with a friend from Japan. The Sen Zushi is at the outer limits of downtown but well worth the trip.

Tempura prawns with vegetables at $12.00 and Una Don (Eel with rice) for $14.00 was delicious and accompanied with superb Green Tea.

The staff were polite and helpful which added to a most enjoyable evening.

Recommended.

“One of the best Japanese restaurants I have eaten in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Presentation and quality were excellent. The house tea with cracked popped rice added was delicious and its flavours lasted through the short walk and visit to the Victoria Art Gallery and an amazing show of Japanese portraits.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Been here a few times before but didn't bother reviewing. We were originally planning a more lavish dinner but Sen is close and we felt like Japonese. We started with Sashimi and same as an earlier critic it arrived cold........exactly as sashimi should be. It was as good as any in town but despite its name it was the non sushi items that shone. Citrus Octopus was amazing and equally great was the Stingray fin. The shrimp fritters were good but kinda plain after the first 2 courses but we bounced back to stratosphere with the whole grilled squid. Last and absolutely not least we split black sesame ice cream and we both regretted only having half. Service at Sen is never to the level of the food but go for the food and accept the service.

“Superb quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

The staffs were very accommodating and friendly. Good sushi, good price & good service. This was a nice place for Japanese food. Rolls were delicious, the seafood pancake was great. Their hot tea is comforting. Overall, a very wonderful experience!

“Below par”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Went a second time for dinner, nothing extraordinary the first time, gave them a chance again this year as this restaurant got good reviews from other travelers.
The tuna sashimi was served cold and the slices were uneven, and the Saba aburi was disappointing.
There are much better sushi restaurants in Vancouver.
