Thought I'd review here again as it hasn't been reviewed in a long time.
Sockeye remains my favourite sushi restaurant even after visiting many others with friends and family. Nowhere else can compare with the amazing prices and quality of food here. The service remains very attentive. The same talented sushi chef has been at the restaurant since I first visited in 2008.
Everyone I bring here falls in love and never wants to go anywhere else!
Now that I've reviewed I'm really craving some sockeye, so definitely going tonight!
FOOD. Fresh, creative, outstanding, melt in your mouth, loved, consistant and in abundance! By far the best sushi in Victoria.
OUR FAVOURITES: Baked Salmon Roll, Spicy Tuna Crunch Roll, Spicy Scallop Roll, Califry Roll.
SERVICE. Excellent, friendly, prompt. Some of the baked infusion rolls take time to cook, so be patient, it is well worth it.
VALUE. I always leave feeling like they gave me way more than I gave them. Prices are well below the average sushi restaurant in Victoria.
ABMIANCE. Roomy sunken booths, sushi bar, nice polished wood furnature. The bathroom could use a makeover though.
Sockeye has something for everyone
~WE LOVE SOCKEYE~
The interior of the restaurant is very cute so when we entered we were pleasantly surprised... I will say that the menu which was written was very vague. I ordered a few things I thought I would recognize and was totally confused when they came...
Chicken yakitori was one stick of sliced chicken and a few mixed vegetables ...the picture showed the classic 3 sticks with plump chicken and green onion...it was okay, but i was confused because it was so obviously not what i had thought i was getting...
Assorted tempura was mostly all huge slices of yam! huuuggeee yam!! I could only eat half of 1 of the yam slices, they were way too big and oily...that was unfortunate because it was a waste of a lot of yams which we didnt eat...
Long story short..the staff was very nice but the menu was very misleading and the food was confusing.
