The only japanese restaurant in town to use brown rice. It's extensive menu provieds more then the usual run of the mill selections of tofu dishes (perfect for vegetarians). Thier miso soup is less salty than most other japanese restaurants and is loaded with vegetables. The way that waitresses were conversing with customers it appears to have a very steady cientele of regulars. I would definately try this place again the food was fantastic. My only complaint was of the server who was very slow and not very friendly, however she was the only waitress there that night and appeared to be quite pregnant so i give her a break on that one.
Ordered Chicken Teriyaki, Sunomono Salad and California Rolls. The rolls were great, the salad ok, but the chicken in the chicken teriyaki was very tough and overcooked.
I've ordered Udon soup in the past and the noodles were overdone but I liked the taste of the broth. I imagine if you're eating in the restaurant itself it would be a lot better.
The service was speedy and friendly, and the fact that they have debit at your door is a plus.
Futuba is the best sushi in victoria. Not only was the service quick and friendly, the food was amazing! 7.95 for a vegetarian combo of sushi that actually leave you full?! Amazing!!! Their Miso soup was the best i've had in victoria, not salty, and great broth. My friend had the maki sushi plate for 8.95 and left stuffed! Will be making this resturant my usual sushi place for sure.
We regular Futaba for their Kara Tofo... the home made sesame sauce makes our meal and we are happy to go back just for this. Since the recent reno we have been happy with both the the decor and atmosphere. The staff are always pleasant and the food always consistent. Good sushi for the right $$.
Futaba was literally the best sushi I've had so far, in Victoria. I especially like the brown rice on the "vegetarian rolls" - it added an interesting texture and made the rice less mushy. The restaurant was decently decorated, and the servers were friendly. Decently priced for Victoria sushi. The agedashi tofu was missing the little fish flakes? or whatever is usually on top of agedashi tofu, but it was yummy nonetheless.
I am Japanese, and I just could not stand the food there. The miso soup tasted like they just boiled veggies too long. They even put carrots in miso soup! (I have never seen carrots in miso soup in Japan.) The sushi tasted like from a food court at shopping mall. It's just one of those "Japanese" restaurants whose owner obviously never even been to Japan.
The price is okay, and they do free delivery, tho.
