“Okay - a little pricey.”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

Food was okay comapred to other sushi places. Servers are nice. A little wrinkle when the maitre d' asked us to leave to allow them to seat a large party.

“Outstanding sushi”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

We love sushi, and have been disappointed so often when recommended by friends to a new restaurant.

Not so with Shizen. My husband and I shared the beautifully presented sushi "boat", which included piping hot tempura, and very generous portions of both sushi and sashimi. The fish was very fresh indeed. We could not eat it all, and ended up with lunch for the next day!

“The BEST in Victoria, BC”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

Sushi Chef Jo is a master at his trade. His sushi is delicious, elegant, very well presented, clean, delivered very fast to your table. I prefer to sit at the bar to eat and watch the skills used to make this art form of food presentation. It is definitely my favourite place when in Victoria. Tracy and Newtown the owners are very friendly people and the place is spacious, clean, always busy. The only suggestion would be that the women bathroom be redone and cleaner.

“Excellent Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

I've eaten here a number of times. The food is delicious, consistent and fresh, the staff attentive and friendly, and the atmosphere great. Prices are also very reasonable so it's basically win-win. It's also open fairly late which is great too.
