this side of Tokyo. Okay, so ramen is suppose to be Chinese, these guys have the best in town (of Victoria, that is). The broth is rich and flavourful, just as it's supposed to be, and accompanied by spinach, hardboiled egg, bamboo and pork slices. The sushi is great and they have a super yam roll with delicious sauce. We eat here frequently, and aside from being too busy sometimes, they always work hard to satisfy special requests.
My husband and I dined here because we love sushi and Japanese food. We ordered very simple, easy to prepare dishes; the age dashi tofu for an appetizer, the medium sushi plate ( for my husband) and the small chirashi sushi for myself.
The age dashi tofu, which is a common tofu dish in Japanese restaurants, came with virtually no broth or garnish. Cubes of deep fried tofu were stacked high and very dry in a bowl with a couple of tablespoons of what looked like an undiluted bottled noodle broth at the bottom. As a result, it was completely tasteless and dry.
My chirashi sushi wasn't any better. The texture of the rice was really off, like it had been either soaked too long causing the grains to break down, or cooked for too short a period of time and then reheated. It seemed both undercooked and overly wet and sticky at the same time. The seasoning of the sushi rice was equally off, tasting weak or watery, and the skimpy assortment of raw fish on top, looked like it had been hacked with a butter knife, with no thought to presentation. The non-fish toppings were the strangest I have ever seen on a chirashi sushi; a cooked chikuwa covered with a sweet brown sauce for instance. The sushi plate that my husband ordered for 18.95 , was very small in size and suffered from the same badly made and seasoned sushi rice and poorly cut fish.
We went away hungry and disappointed and we will never ever be back.
yoshi sushi is like any other sushi place menu are ver similar but it's all about how they make them and what ingredient they use. i really love the gyoza they are the best in town. nobody else beat them. im not really a big fan of there rolls. there are days that there roll are very tastie and can be very plain. i only go for lunch never dinner time. that's beacuse i love there dynamite bento box. very easy and simple. that's for those who are not to picky with what they eat. the staff are nice. they try there best to take your order when they can. there are days that they are to busy and they fall behind . but i have to say they do try to help each other out. i say go for the lunch boxes. easy and fast.
This suchi restaurant has a good high traffic location closer to the suburbs, but the high prices don't reflect the food quality. The ambience might have been considered fine dining a decade ago, but now it seems tired and filled with noisy kids. Fortunately, you can find very good suchi in Victoria for much less - try Azuma sushi on Yates St instead (amazing spicy tuna sashimi there).
