We checked the reviews and decided to try Bushido Sushi. We visit Tokyo about once a year for usually five weeks each visit. We lived in the Pacific Northwest for almost thirty years where Asian food is plentiful and excellent. With this we feel that we are aware of good Asian food and especially sushi. We also realize that certain... More

I'm a huge fan of sushi, and Bushido's delivers when it comes to great-tasting sushi. They have unique speciality rolls that taste wonderful. Always love coming here and interacting with the staff- truly wonderful people!

A nice small sushi shop in downtown Venice, Florida historic district Quality sushi and shashimi by the piece and in rolls. Some specialty rolls. If they say spicy, they mean it. Good Sake and a wine list as well. A small parking lot next to the building

I also wondered about a little off/fishy taste in some of the rolls. That said, nothing dire happened and the sushi was perfectly adequate but definitely not the knock your socks off variety. Staff was okay, fish was okay, cleanliness was okay.....but in this location with a captive tourist audience this place could be much more.

Looking for some good sushi in venice. Heard this place was the best...Meh is all I can say. While the service was very friendly but a little rushed. My family order 4 different rolls, chicken and "beef" teriyaki. All the food was okay...for the price I was hoping for some really good food. The yellowtail had a very fishy taste.... More

Have been to Bushido a couple of times now. The food is awesome and fun. We had an assortment of sashimi and hand rolls. All delicious and very satisfying, would highly recommend.

Went there for something different from the usual Florida fare and was disappointed in the quality of the food. Had a crab rangoon appetizer that tasted like it was fried in reused oil and the two sushi rolls we ordered were poorly made in terms of how they were rolled. The descriptions far exceeded the quality and the taste of... More

Decent service, and to be fair, excellent soup. The salmon teriyaki was good and filling. The tuna roll and nigiri, however, were clearly old frozen fish. Started to send it back, didn't, and was rewarded with a nasty abdominal surprise as a reward for being polite. Poorly-handled raw fish is dangerous, so we cannot in good conscience award more than... More

This is hands down the best sushi in Venice! Great service and atmosphere as well. They do have a few parking places which is super handy in the downtown area. Chef Ho the owner is amazing!!!

Five years ago friends took my wife and I to Bushido's. I have always been intimidated of eating raw fish or any form of Sushi, until my experience at Bushido. Since then I have returned several times to enjoy their Edamame, Sea Food Chowder for appetizer, & my favorites Sumo Bento Box, Venetian Bento Box, Ultimate Combo to name just... More
