Way too expensive for what you get. The fish quality was poor and the atmosphere is very casual so I’m not sure how they can justify their expensive prices. Waitress was friendly. I think the only people eating here are tourists that don’t know any...More

From the moment you walk in it feels good and you know the food is going to be great. Big chunks of delish Agedashi Tofu served in a flagrant broth to start. The most expertly prepared and flavourful I have ever had. Don't let them...More

Sushi was good, a little pricey. They were out of one item that we ordered. The music was playing a little loud.

Tasty sushi. I ordered a spicy scallop roll, and a BC roll. Both were good. The service was very friendly and attentive. Our teacups and water glasses were never empty for long.

Late night dinner, just before they closed. Sushi was fresh, and larger portions than what I’m used to seeing. Ordered the spicy tuna sashimi, and was serviced the sauce separately. This was new for me, but it was still enjoyable. Good sushi in Victoria.
