“2nd time to try! They keep their high food quality. The octopus, pork belly & Hailbut are very tasty! It’s really hard to cook Octopus but it’s so tender & Halibut is so juicy & fresh!Love their plating & the arrangement of bday desserts! They even replace another drinks for me as I forgot I m the driver tonight! New driver’s bad!Their desserts are another level! The mango coconut like Thai mango sticky rice, cheesecake with yuzu sorbet always the best, chocolate with choco ice cream that the taste is not over sweet as the ice cream just light choco taste & peach, strawberry & sour cherry ice cream sorbet that are perfect match!The servers and the Chef are nice! ?”

Hi Five Chicken 1483 Douglas St Unit 104, Victoria Fast Food

“ABSOLUTE BEST FRIED CHICKEN IN VICTORIA or anywhere that I’ve ever tasted. Their chicken is extremely crispy, juicy, tender and tastes insanely fresh as i believe it’s made to order. Also wanted to mention it’s very light so you don’t feel like you just ate a ton a fats and oils. I don’t know how they do this ? They also had a special on their 2 pieces of chicken which you can choose fried or roasted or regular or spicy. I chose regular fried chicken. They also have this deal on with their reg chicken burgers too. Such an incredible deal. I ordered delivery via Uber Eats and usually the food is soggy and cold. This was NONE of these. I was so impressed how hot and crispy the chicken was and the Korean chicken burger was ridiculously yummy and super crispy fried , golden to perfection. I asked for the Korean sauce on the side as I didn’t know how spicy it would taste and so the burger wouldn’t go soggy. It arrived fast and everything was still hot and crispy. I added pickles to my chicken burger and added my own tomatoes which made it perfect. You can pay a small fee to add these to any burger and I just felt it made it taste even more fresh than it already was. The brioche bun was definitely fresh and so was every other item that I ordered. The Korean sauce wasn’t crazy spicy but I’m glad I got it on the side so I could.control how much I wanted so I used it more as a dip for my French fries that were also crispy , golden , and fresh. I did put them in the air fryer for 3 minutes and then they tasted just like they came out the air fryer. I was so incredibly impressed with every item I ordered as the prices are extremely reasonable considering the amount of food you get plus the quality is like nothing I’ve ever had before. I wish i could have given 10 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as the food was way beyond my expectations. I would definitely order again and I highly recommend them to anybody and everybody possible. I’m so excited to try other menu items to review as I’m sure they’ll be just as delicious as everything I ordered. Since there is so much food I now have enough for 2 lunches and a dinner. I even called to thank them and Ann was so incredibly polite and gracious. This is definitely a gem in Victoria. Plus they are open from 11am to late most nights til 1am and Thursday -Saturday til 3am for you late night eaters. It’s honestly the best food I’ve had in a very long time and I don’t feel all weighted down and sick because it was not greasy at all. I can’t stress enough how delicious it is and how reasonable the prices are even without the buy 1 get 1 free deals they have right now on Uber eats. Thank you so much Hi Five chicken for everything. I appreciate it so much and look forward to trying different menu items soon. Kindest regards, Shay ( Judy’s daughter as I use her Uber eats to order through. ). You definitely made my day ??☀️”

Tim Hortons 3501 Ravine Way, Victoria Cafe • $

“The staff are overworked due to the homeless situation in Victoria, in terms of their washrooms. They keep their family washroom closed due to finding people camping or showering inside, which sounds like it can make quite a mess for the staff.While I find it completely frustrating to have to wait to use a washroom when there is another one available, often to find that the toilet paper has all been taken or used or the washroom in disrepair due to the situation, I can still have some sympathy for the staff. They shouldn't have such a burden being placed on them.Our government should be doing more to ensure proper washroom/shower facilities for the homeless, which can then be cleaned by someone other than the fine folks who are making our breakfast. But I think they're leaving these people to rot as a warning to the rest of us.”

“I would like to say that Hamsa working at the Goldstream Village (Langford BC) Tim Horton’s outlet I had occasion to sit watching him produce his orders in a timely and efficient manner, but more than that he had outstanding customer service skills with each and every person he came in contact with. During a time when it is difficult to get valuable employee’s who are an asset to the Tim Horton’s brand name, it was gratifying to see that this outlet had hired an exemplary employee. It was interesting to see that there were other employee’s “goofing around” but this didn’t distract Hamsa from doing his job. Again I appreciate the outstanding service Hamsa is providing at this outlet.”

I was charged for food I didn’t order and the total was $$$. After I tapped my card, I realized the order was wrong. Josh did the MOST for me. The register machine wouldn’t refund me and Josh was willing to try everything before alternative options (like a gift card). Josh + the co-worker with a beard… legends! Your costumer service skills are top-notch and deserve some recognition.”

“Pros: Delicious scones and good breakfast items. Would recommend the ranchero wrap and the white chocolate scone. Spacious, seats have backs, and big tables. Great coffee nice patio out back and cool atmosphere.Cons: Not the cleanest place I’ve been in. Lots of crumbs on the tables and rings on my coffee cup. Not a huge deal, but still.Overall: I go at least once a week because it’s a dimly lite place that’s nice to sit and have coffee-scone meditation time early in the morning. The place is always pack and by 9-10 these a line to the door. That speaks for itself. Would recommend a visit if you haven’t had the pleasure. Would also recommend the staff give the tables a wipe.”

I wanted to clarify that Songhees and Esquimalt are lək̓ʷəŋən. W̱SÁNEĆ includes Tsartlip, Tsyecum, and Tsawout, who speak the SENĆOŦEN language.So perhaps the land acknowledgment could be corrected to reflect the shared territories of W̱SÁNEĆ and lək̓ʷəŋən people, and their respective communities.”

“I love their tacos. I have found myself coming back for more on the regular. Amazing owners, amazing food. Could not recommend enough. My significant other from New York could not physically get enough of them and ate tacos almost everyday he was in town and they were open. If you have not tried them, do it! You will not be disappointed.”

“1st trial of this cozy & homey cafe! My order was Jackfruit scramble & a dripped coffee. Coffee tasted good and the hot breakfast was absolutely delicious & unforgettable!

When I checked with their menu afterwards I was taking tofu actually instead of their scrambled egg that’s amusing! ?The source with tomato, onion…. Kinds of Salsa sauce that’s very good! The portion was big so I can skip my lunch!

Their services were friendly! I will definitely comeback & try something else!

Love this commercial hub with Bagel Co., Cold Comfort ice cream, Patisserie Daniel that is an incredible combination of tenant mix to achieve a healthy & reciprocity commercial environment.”

“Probably my favourite place for a beer and food in Victoria. I always use the outside seating as it is open all year and is very dog friendly. The beer is great and the food is too because they actually don't sell much food beyond a few snacks. This means that you can bring in food from any of the restaurants around or stuff from home. The outside seating is covered and in the winter it is enclosed and there are heaters (though never been there much below 0C).”

Citrus & Cane 1900 Douglas St, Victoria Cocktail Bar • $$

“Without a doubt this is my favorite cocktail bar I've ever been to in my life. I love cocktails, but cocktails here beat them all. Not only is the atmosphere exactly what I want in terms of aesthetics but the service is incredible, the vibes are immaculate and there literally isn't a single thing I would change. I bring everyone I know here and honestly have a hard time drinking cocktail anywhere else because they simply cannot compete with the creativity and experience that citrus and cane provides. I'm sad I can't be here everyday. HIGHLY recommend..Update - still going here, almost on a weekly basis, more than a year later. Still my favorite. If you've been thinking about going and haven't gone yet, go. You will not be disappointed. Staff is incredibly knowledgeable. Drinks do not disappoint. Good music good vibes. Goodness all around.”

“So happy to have stumbled upon this hidden gem, tucked in by the Double Tree and Bartholomew's, a bar with a cool, cozy atmosphere, inventive cocktails, and gifted mixologists with a real curiosity and zeal for making aesthetic and delicious drinks. Enjoyed the fried olives that paired well with our drinks, and they offered other small plates that looked interesting. The cocktails are the stars of the show and some are quite beautiful like the oceanic blue Cyanometer. We also tried Theory of Colours, Life in The Woods, Concentrated Sunbeams, and Diamond of Urals and also some Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year Peated Scotch, which was surprisingly good. Would be coming here regularly if we lived in the area!”

“We are Sushi lovers from Orlando, Florida so we were very excited about coming to Victoria BC to find a great sushi restaurant.

I searched around and read about 4 or 5 different places in the downtown area and finally chose Gozen due to their great reviews and beautiful pictures. We were a family of 7 and they sat us down immediately and took reat care of us. Just wonderful service all around by Anna our waitress!

We ended up ordering Spicy Tuna, Spicy Salmon, Hawaii, Lobster and Crazy Girl rolls, plus Gyoza and Steamed Dumplings. Everything was absolutely delicious!!

Wow, we were so happy that we came here to Gozen to eat their amazing sushi, and we would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant to everyone. You will not be disappointed, and we would love to come back again in the future.”
