The evening didn't start off well. Their timing for tables was way off, told 20-30 minutes and it ended up being over an hour. Once sat the service was really attentive and the food was amazing!!! Everything was very tasty and well presented.

Nubo is a small restaurant near the center of Victoria. Excellent quality fresh seafood. Reservations best for both lunch and dinner. Open late. Can accommodate vegetarians and vegans. Excellent choice for casual Japanese in Victoria.

We ordered for takeout for 4 adults. The sushi was very good, without being the best that I've ever had. The teriyaki chicken was excellent. Overall, it was very good.

As vegetarians, we do make occasional exceptions for sushi, especially if we're in a place where the seafood would be fresh, such as here. The sushi, service, etc. were all very good. The only downside was limited vegan options for our fully vegan daughter, despite...More

I was extremely impressed by the quality of the food. The butabara, rainbow roll, strawberry salmon sashimi and the hamachi sashimi were not only present in expert fashion but tasted so fresh! Price wise Nubo is a bit higher than average but you are getting...More

There were groups of all sizes happily chatting away, so I don't think you would have a problem. Was more 'vibrant' than 'Noisy'. Definitely a happy place!
