    My wife, son and I totally enjoyed the food, atmosphere and the service was top shelf. We highly recommend this to anyone who likes sushi, or has never tried it. Will return on our next visit to Victoria for sure. Out of all the Sushi I have had in my life this was the best, the deserts were great as well.

    Was very impressed by the quality of the seafood they served us. Very fresh and very, very tasty. Surprisingly generous cuts of fish on all the nigiri we ordered-- especially surprising considering how reasonable the prices were. The tables are not overly crowded together unlike some other restaurants in Victoria, which made the meal much more comfortable. Will definitely return when in Victoria next.

    Our New Years dinner at Sent Zushi was really a treat. It has the feeling of a well established and beloved institution. The best thing for me, was the unusually broad menu including many varieties of seafood that I've only ever read about. Service was prompt and unobtrusive.

    Best sushi in Victoria. Ebizo is also great, but Sen offers way more table space, and their list of non-sushi dinner options are delicious.

  • Monday Night Dinner
    Bolergirl
    Dined on 9/16/2013
    Dined with my husband and his boss. Clean restaurant, nice decor. We figured the food must be pretty good as they were quite busy for a Monday night. Our server was very sweet but not overly efficient although not so much as to cause us any distress. We have gone to Ebizo in the past but find it to be too noisy. We thought we'd give them another try but they are closed Monday's. Sen Zushi had the next highest rating on Urbanspoon so we decided to check them out. We'll definitely go back.

    My experience at Sen Zushi was good. I had a reservation for 2, and as soon as the hostess was notified we were shown to our table. The menu is large, and as I was a little dazed from the day's goings-on I do not recall much of the menu however they definitely had many impressive dishes that went beyond the average. The prices and quality seem somewhat higher than other sushi places I have been in Victoria. We had several rolls, vegetable tempura, and gomae - everything was tasty and satisfying. I recommend Sen Zushi and will personally be back to explore more of the menu. First impression: 3.5 out of 5. +Good food and service -Was a little louder than I would have liked

    For starters, they use long grain rice which is not what is used for sushi. I expected more for a restaurant so close to vancouver. The quality is not what I am used to.

    Though a Victoria resident for many years and a sushi lover, I don't know why it has taken me so long to discover SenZushi. Excellent food, attentive service and a couple of well recommended bottles of Saki made for a memorable evening. Loved it. Will be back. Soon.

  • Best sushi in town!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/17/2013
    We came here the first time based on a recommendation from a Japanese friend. It surpassed our expectations. So this time we opted to take our out of town friends here for a great sushi experience. It was enjoyed by all. The only down side is they only have one copy of their gluten free menu, at least they have a GF menu and they are planning on making more copies. However, I do find their GF options to be quite limited, which does speak to the fact that it is truly GF. What I ended up getting was simple and still delicious. The price range is a bit higher than the average sushi restaurant in Victoria but you get great friendly service and the regular menu options are abundant and delicious!

    I've been going to Sen for years now, and I've never left disappointed. The food is always fresh, the service is always friendly. Be warned, though: it gets very busy on weekends, so you really should make a reservation. If we hadn't made a reservation this weekend, we would have been waiting an hour!

    We have been eating at Senzushi for the past many years and always came home happy. However yesterday was an exception. All the food was great except the special grilled cod meal I ordered which was $15 (which seemed excessive when I actually saw the meal) but was really disappointing. The servers are generally very good but yesterday we were served by an unfriendly one. She was not pleasant like the usual servers we get and I hope i don't get served by her again. I plan to eat there again as it now feels like a tradition for my family but I hope they won't make price or quantity changes to the menu.

    This Japanese restaurant was just awesome. I am sure that it can be one of the best Japanese restaurant out of Japan. I guess it can compete well in Japan, too. Everything I got was just cooked so that it was really flesh. I recommend people all the stuff they provide. I am so impressed.

    This is the most authentic Japanese restaurant in Victoria, in my opinion. There are a lot of menu items that are not found in other restaurants in town. The sashimi is extremely fresh, and unlike most other restaurants, the miso soup is not full of salt!
