“Better than others in Victoria, but still not Great...”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Like to previous reviewer, I too have struggled to find a quality sushi place in Victoria. I will agree that this venue being out of downtown is a perk (less traffic, free parking, etc). Sadly, that can't make up for the shortfalls.

While the food itself is much better than Shima Sushi, it still doesn't compare to some of the places I've tried in southern Alberta. The sushi rolls that we ordered were, for the most part, quite tasty! One comment (not a complaint) is that the pieces in each roll were not cut evenly.

I must say that the service was lackluster. Granted, it may just have been "one of those days", but our server was emotionless, lethargic and continually dragged her feet, while slowly ambling to and from our table.

“The best Japanese Restaurant in Victoria”
Reviewed 13 May 2011

Since the closure of Tatami Sushi following the retirement of its owner last year we have been searching for an outstanding Japanese restaurant in Victoria. All of the downtown restaurants are mediocre at best and mostly overcrowded.

This week we decided to try Chiba Sushi. What a stroke of good luck. Firstly unlike downtown there is ample free parking, at the corner of Gorge and Government. Secondly the food, service, and ambience are first class. For appetizers we ordered the Tuna Tataki and Oysters Miyadori, both perfect. The Sunomono was a tasty mix of shrimp, octopus, and... The Sashimi 18 piece combination was fresh and well prepared, and the Rock n Roll sushi was excellent.

Our service was outstanding and the waitress very helpful with suggestions. There are both conventional and Japanese style booths and a sushi bar. A very pleasant quiet Japanese restaurant. We strongly recommend it to all Japanese food lovers.
