Japanese Village, The734 Broughton Street, Victoria
Best Japanese in town
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2007 - 1:40pm [Dine in]

Teppan lunch is amazing and sooo reasonable. I always leave feeling so full and satisfied. The steak sauce is amazing but some people do find it a little much. I, however, like my food swimming in it. Just thinking about it....my mouth is watering...Dinner is also great but very expensive for teppan. I prefer to go to the sushi bar for dinner which is an experience in itself. Head sushi chef, Sammy is hilarious and personable and knows all his customers by name. Try the tuna tataki, I know people who don't eat fish (let alone raw fish) who have tried this and have fallen head over heels in love with this dish. Also the tempura prawn roll is delicious. I've been going here for years and it is consistently the best, freshest, tastiest, most authentic sushi in town. Forget Azuma and Shiki and all those other places that are trendy. Japanese village is number one.

Not bad...not incredible

As I am part Japanese and grew up eating Japanese food, I'm a tough critic. There are sooo many Japanese restaurants in Victoria and the majority of them are not worth trying. Azuma is a great lunch spot as it is right downtown and they always offer a decent bento box lunch special. My favourite is the chicken katsu although I sometimes wish the portions were a bit bigger. The service is decent as well, although one of my biggest problems with Japanese restaurants is when the staff is not Japanese (ie Chinese) and they cannot pronounce the names properly and have no knowledge of what they are serving. It's not enough to just look Asian, you should know what you are talking about! I've never been for dinner and I don't think I would go. I would much rather go to Japanese Village and get outstanding food. Yes, it's pricier there, but well worth it.

Try the caribbean chicken burger
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2007 - 1:11pm [Dine in]

I've been here several times but have only ever tried one item. The caribbean chicken burger is delicious. It's only on the lunch menu but I've been for dinner before and they were very accomodating and specially made it for me. The chicken is grilled to perfection and served with mango chutney and vegetables and some kind of mayo. The flavours complement eachother perfectly and the plantain chips are also delicious. One time I had a cocktail and it seemed as though the bartended didn't measure anything, just dumped a bunch of alcohol in it. Good if you want to get drunk for cheap, I guess, but it tasted pretty awful. I haven't heard the best things about the rest of the food but I found what's good and I'm sticking to it.

Adriana's Mexican Restaurant1527 Amelia Street, Victoria
Started off great...then went baaaad
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2007 - 1:03pm [Dine in]

The atmospher is great; the interior is brightly painted and decorated with lots of interesting knick-knacks from Mexico. I had a hard time deciding what to order as everything on the menu sounded delicious. Our waitress was very nice but almost too attentive. She made me feel uncomfortable the number of times she checked up on us. I appreciate being looked after, but this was almost more annoying than being ignored. I still had a bit of ceviche left but no tortilla chips to eat it with, so I asked for a few more chips and this is where the service went horribly wrong. I asked our server for just a couple chips so I could finish the ceviche and she said okay and disappeared in the kitchen. Five minutes later, still no chips. I saw her running around attending to other people so I asked another waitress if she wouldn't mind getting me a couple tortilla chips. She looked so confused and gave me the wierdest look. Then she went to the kitchen and came back empty-handed. They don't make tortilla chips to order, and even if they did, you'd think they'd have a coupld lying around? About ten minutes later I was getting rather annoyed and really just wanted to finish my meal. Then the first waitress came by and tried to take my ceviche away from me! I told her I was still waiting for the tortilla chips and she said the other girl would bring them out for me. Finally, they came but at this point I was pretty pissed. She didn't even apologize for the delay and quite frankly I detected some attitude from her. I have to say, though, at the end of our meal Adriana came out and talked to my parents for a long time (both of them speak Spanish) and she was very personable and hospitable. She ended the night on a pleasant note, but the waitresses were pretty horrible and turned me off. Although the atmosphere was very inviting and the food was impressive, I'm not sure if I would go back...

What more could you ask for?

I have lots of shawarma experience, having lived in Ottawa, the shawarma capital of Canada, and this place offers the best chicken shawarma I have ever tried. The chicken is cooked to perfection, the outside is crunchy and spicy and the inside is juicy and succulent. I never liked beets before but they really enhance the shawarma, and the garlic sauce is amazing. The price is great and the food is unbeatable which is why there if often a huuuge line out the door. The place is tiny so you can't eat in there. Perfect for a nice meal on the go or sitting outside somewhere. Now I live in Victoria where there is not one shawarma spot. When I go to Vancouver, this is the first place I visit! My mouth is watering...
