Ebizo was within easy walking distance of our hotel on the Victoria waterfront. The restaurant was easy enough to find, and was a small comfortable size. The staff were very polite and attentive. The itamae worked their craft behind a small sushi bar. The menu...was straightforward and simple, with nigiri, sashimi, maki/uramaki, and bowls (udon/ramen, chirashi). The fish was wonderfully fresh. Reasonably priced. The restaurant had a "local favorite" vibe with what appeared to be a number of regular customers interacting with the staff. Great to see as the 5th Covid wave passes over the country.More

When they reopened I even brought them flowers. The food is consistently good and the staff is extra sweet. Consistency is the key to good restaurant business. It is a place that is quaint and makes your Friday night special, and enhances your quality of...life. Thanks!More

It must be so hard in this pandemic to be a tiny restaurant where social distancing is all but impossible. Happily, Ebizo is doing take out so we can still enjoy the delicious Japanese food they are known for. The tuna tataki is still the...best I’ve ever eaten. The sushi was fresh and great and the sunomono salad was refreshing. I miss the sushi bar and the ambiance but the take out is good. Please support this great little restaurant people. We want it to survive these bad timesMore

Japanese food ever and we love Japanese food and have even visited Japan over 50 times. The tempura had taste of Lard and uneatable and the futomaki was so bad and the sashimi was horrible but I didn’t get sick but no taste and not...fresh. Have to wonder how TA rates it so high? That’s my issue now checking the reviewsMore

Been there several times now, for family Birthday Dinners. Very Friendly, kind, and hard working Servers. Sushi tastes like it’s pulled from the sea, super fresh, well rolled and full of flavour! Can’t get enough Sushi rolls per visit and the Vegetable Tempura Baskets always,flavourful,...with great dipping sauce! Prices quite good, for the rolls and vegetable basket! 😁More

We eat Japanese food quite often and were looking for a restaurant near the Empress Hotel for lunch. Ebizo seemed perfect and it was! Good food, good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

Definitely not even close to the best sushi in Victoria. Tasteless and overpriced. Try out somewhere else
