A bustling Japanese restaurant primarily packed with locals! How nice!

We loved the fresh food (excellent sashimi and sushi -- so fresh), good and friendly service and being with the locals. The place has great energy and super fresh food at reasonable prices!

Excellent fresh Sashimi and Sushi. Shumai and Gyoza dumplings are housemade and the best I have tasted, most shops have purchased from wholesalers. A real sign of quality is that there are always young people in the restauarant, eating with great enjoyment. The chances are they have been "educated" by the delicious food.

Everyone knows this is the best place around for good sushi. The Tampa is my fav. My kids like this place too. Cute atmosphere with comfy red cushion seats. I've been going here for years and have always enjoyed the food and respectful service. You can sit at the sushi bar or a table, so it is great if you... More

We are just back from up north and we decided to give Bushido Sushi a try for lunch. Looking forward to a great experience we ordered a benito box and teriyaki chicken for lunch. My husband's sushi lunch was not fresh--the tuna was stringy; the smoked salmon tasted cold;the California role had no taste; and the spicy tuna roll was... More

Staff are basically un-caring, aloof, do the minimum to serve you, sushi chefs I am not sure they really know what they are doing based on the cuts of Fish. Sashimi is cut way to thick, presentation is not the greatest, nor is the sushi cold. One waitress, 2 Sushi Chefs, they can hardly keep up, let alone see if... More

Tiny sushi/Japanese joint in downtown Venice. Sushi is super fresh, and the tempura is tasty. Good place to feed your sushi cravings.
