“Hidden Gem in Victoria!”
Reviewed 17 August 2011

Almost every time we go to Victoria we stop in at Fujiya. Either to buy groceries, a snack or dinner.

The grocery selection for Japanese foods (natto, kaki pea, snacks, drinks like Calpis, ect) is excellent. We are always able to spend a fair whack of money on our favourite Japanese snack and food items!

The take away (there are a couple of seats inside mind you) sushi bar is excellent. EVERYTHING we've had from there is always super fresh, tasty and has all the right sauces, pickles and presentation.

The only little hassle is parking in their parking lot. Shelbourne is a busy street and the parking lot is small. We often park across the street at the mall and then dash across Shelbourne.

“Fresh, delish and fast!”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

When we popped into the shop it was packed with patrons. Fresh sushi was being made and packaged continually - flying out of the refrigerated counter as quickly as it was going in. The rice was exactly right, and miso had lots of tofu. There was a good variety of sushi, and the ones we chose were all delicious. The shop seemed well stocked as a corner grocery store, too. The check-out line up moved efficiently and the cashiers were pleasant. It was a perfect place to pick up a meal to go!

“Excellent sushi to go from a Japanese food market.”
Reviewed 29 April 2011

Fujiya's is not really a restaurant, but they offer an amazing assortment of Japanese and other asian food to go. Everything we tries was delicious and in generous portions. We will definitely go back again!

“Best Japanese Food Shop in Victoria”
Reviewed 4 February 2011

Great place for take out sushi and other Japanese food. They have a huge selection of freshly made packaged sushi, plus many other take out lunch options such as miso soup, tempura, sunimono salad, plus a selction of menu items in a heated box. Can get hot tea, and a good selection of Japanese grocery products.

“Not a restaurant but worth visiting, best sushi in town by a mile”
Reviewed 20 January 2011

This small Japanese store is a busy spot, traffic in and out of the store and parking lot never stops.

Sushi is made fresh every day, how do I know ? I was there one day at around 5:45 and they were marking everything down to get it off the shelf . . .I was impressed. How many of the grocery store sushi counters just leave it out for the next day.

We now visit once a week since discovering this place, prices are amazing, quality is awesome.

The staff will do custom trays when asked.
