The best Japanese food in Victoria. Authentic, friendly, delicious.
Great food and service!
This is one of our favourite places to eat! The seafood is incredibly fresh, and the menu has a lot of different options to please even those who do not eat sushi or seafood.
Best Japanese restaurant in town, there is no others like this
Loved it all the way and the waitress was incredible.. She made substitutes for things that she really didnt have to do.
Loved it.. And will be back
Best sushi in town plus a wonderful variety of appetizers and other Japanese food. Very reasonable prices for authentic, fresh, well-prepared food.
The food was average, not going back again.
Had the bento box. Good
We have enjoyed past meals, but this time 2 out of our 4 meals were sub-standard.
Chicken breast in one was flavorless and more like pressed chicken, and beef ribs in another were tough and dry. The atmosphere and the service were superb, so we will probably give this another try.
Great Sushi and great service. Our favorite sushi bar in the city.
Best sushi in Victoria
The best sushi I have had in ages! So fresh and perfect.
Beautifully served, made very quickly as well.
The servers are friendly and nice.
I did find both the water and soda tasted funky, but the food was just amazing!
Sen Zushi is amazing! The food is always delicious and the service is great. The people who work there are kind and caring.
Although the food is great, we will not be going there again at night because the lighting is so hard on the eyes - small, focused beams that shine directly in your eyes and/or off the glass on pictures - blinding for older people with cataract/lens implants!
The service and food were excellent. Will be back!
I didn't expect to see pickled japanese plum being used for a special roll - it was just incredible. Super creative specials, I highly recommend adding a few of them to your order.
the best japanese restaurant in victoria, you can't find another one.
Avoid the seafood kabobs. They were very dry, tough & lacked flavor. The miso soup, tempura, sushi, rice & cold noodle salad were very good but portions were small. Staff was friendly and provided good service.
We were very pleased with both the food and service at Sen Zushi; prices were good value and food was nutritious, hot and tasty! Service was very pleasant and with an appropriate 'apology' when the soup and salad were served later than anticipated!
Mmm so good! Senzushi is a great place for delicious high quality japanese. My favorite items to order are the ika poppo, takoyaki, negitoro maki and maguro/sake sashimi. Its always busy so reservations are recommended. Great place to come with friends to share sushi and sake. The only issue was nothing to do with the restaurant just an annoying group of korean students ignoring each other while watching vids/talking loudly on their phones.
Went here for my son's birthday. Food was exactly we had hoped for. Delivered on all levels.
Best Japanese Food on the island. Sit at the sushi bar and enjoy the process.
Great food , super fresh. Service was very good, table was ready when we arrived.
I would recommend this restaurant for people who love authentic Japanese food.
I was disappointed: Sen Zushi has been better in the past.
this is the best japanese restaurant we have here, even though it isn't the best, but if you want close enough authentic japanese food, this is the only choice you have on the island!
Sen Sushi is our family's favourite restaurant. However, lately we have noticed that their service is not as good as it was before. We enjoyed eating there before but after the renovations they have increased their prices and we see a marked difference in the way the servers treat some guests. I find some of the new servers to be quite rude. We no longer feel welcome there.
When the former Sen Zushi burned down, I just didn't eat Japanese at a restaurant until it re-opened. I would rather wait and have authentic Japanese food from Sen Zushi than eat second-rate Japanese at another restaurant. The new restaurant has one third more seating, and the décor is spectacular. There isn't a piece of art in the place that I wouldn't love to have at home. Combine that with the excellently prepared and presented food and it's a no-brainer. Sen Zushi for the win!
Excellent food and service. We immensely
enjoyed all of the dishes.
One of our favorite places in Victoria, we have had numerous meals here, all were a delight. We were joined for dinner by friends that live in Victoria, who had never been to Sen Zushi. They were surprised and delighted to find such a great restaurant previously unknown to them. All the food is well prepared, well presented and our server was excellent. The ice cream with plum wine sauce was new for us and it was an excellent cap to another great meal here.
No the best sushi I have ever had but fresh fish and pleasant fresh greens. Previous reviews said that's it's the best sushi in Victoria. Can't comment on that as we haven't eaten elsewhere. Certainly not the best sushi in Vancouver. Overall for the price, the dinner was good.
Great food and service
The best sushi in Victoria. Great food and service. A perfect night out.
Presentation is wonderful, prices fair and reservations recommended.
We were on holiday from New Zealand and were please we had not discovered Zen Sushi earlier. We can both be quite critical of our dining out experiences and were blown away by how great this was. If we had discovered Zen Sushi earlier we would have eaten there several times and not experienced other eating places. We did eat at several well respected eating places in Victoria and this was our outstanding favourite.
Usually I would not have dessert at a Japanese restaurant but here they do amazing desserts - not Japanese but superb.
The wine list is tiny but what they have works well with the food.
It is a huge distance from New Zealand to Sen Zushi but if I could go there again I definitely would.
Absolutely superb. (If booking on-line check the address has been changed back to their Fort Street address).
Very fresh and delicious
When I made the reservation, I asked for a quite corner table for our gathering. The table reserved for us was ideal. The food was excellent. My friend said the quality of food in Sen Zushi was very high standard and comparable to the restaurants in Japan.
Large variety of authentic Japanese food at reasonable prices. We ordered the chicken nanban and it was absolutely wonderful. The tuna in the negitoro was very fresh and was very delicious.
I am a regular for years and my husband and I LOVE Senzushi. This is one of a few REAL Japanese restaurants in Victoria that everyone should know.
Service can be bit slow, but we don't care because of quality of service and food. Of course, they use very fresh seafood for sushi and amazing presentation unlike other fake Japanese restaurants.
Seated right away, reservations at this place is a must, since the remodel it's busier than ever. Standout dishes were the prawns tempura, veggie goyoza, gomae, veggie rolls, and tuna takaki. Really like the drink with the unfiltered sake and citrus ice cube. Will be back again.
As always the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I am so happy we were introduced to this restaurant by our friends. I highly recommend the karage and the agedashi (spicy tofu). All the special rolls are beautifully presented. The quality of the food is exceptional. Everything tastes fresh! If you love sushi, go here!
