I went (18/2), I saw and I tasted, and it was all good. I don't often go to sushi trains, so I can make the comparisons other people do. But the food and presentation were so enjoyable.

I was surprised to find this shop ranked on TripAdvisor so high versus my usual favourite: makoto in the city. I had been here before when it first opened. This time I took my wife and 9month old son. First up, the lighting in this...More

Sushi Hotaru offers a good Sushi for a fair price. We were satisfied and we recomment that restaurant.

Went to this place for two reasons:- 1. have heard from other people that have been here that it was a great place to have sushi and 2. the price. We are big sushi eaters and we were kind of disappointed with the selections that...More

My go-to sushi train in central downtown Sydney had maintained its competitive pricing but the selection, and possibly the freshness, had lowered over the year. The ipad ordering system still works very nicely and some presumably more popular items were still found circulating on the...More

I really like the setting of the place. The music was great and I love the electronic ordering. But unfortunately the sushi wasn’t particularly good.

We were looking all over for a sushi train to experience because we heard Sydney does them really well! We stumbled upon this place while looking through the shopping mall, and we were not disappointed- by the reasonable price and the freshness/taste of the sushi,...More

Love this place, best value sushi train I’ve found. All plates $3.50 and plenty of salmon, tuna and scallops. Always busy but the wait is usually short. Also plenty of larger plates to order also.

We use to frequent this place but not anymore. Their portion sizes has dramatically changed. A grilled salmon is not the size of your thumb. So when they started downsizing on portions we just upped-and-gone. If your paying more than $3.50 for a plate of...More

It’s train tracks sushi. Mainly Korean staff and cooks. No sushi chefs. Portions are small. Quality is ok. Place is warm and sweaty. Maybe building centre aircon is not designed for a big restaurant. It’s in a mixed shopping and office complex. It’s fine but...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
