Small eatery hence limited seats but the favour is true to form and serve generous. Will come back again.

This is a small restaurant so we were lucky to get a window table when we arrived. I had a yummy bento box with sashimi and chicken Katsura. Cost was $15 which is reasonable. We sat chatting for ages and they kept topping up the waters without trying to move us on.

The food was decent and good value for money. The only problem is they don't have enough tables so if you go at a busy time, there is a good chance you won't find a table.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday after doing a few things in the city in the morning. It was a choice between Thai and here. I'm so glad we chose Kura. .Pleasant atmosphere. and great staff. They have one of those iPad menu devices that make it so easy to order and get attention of staff. As you order each item,... More

Kura Kura provides delicious food at the good price. It serves fresh seafood and has a few sake choices. Go a head try some warm sake. it's amazing!

We had dinner here and it was a different dining experience. You place your own order on an iPad and can watch the progress of your order. It was a fun way to dine although you may not get all your meals together. If you take wine make sure you order your wine glasses on the iPad or you won't... More

Ive walked past this establishment so many times and keep walking as the downstairs seating is usually full. Today I decided to pop in and I'm glad that I did. I got a seat downstairs. Service was really good. Food was really nice. I particularly enjoyed the Salmon Sashimi and Okonomiyaki. Will definitely return

Thanks to TripAdvisor for the recommendation. It was a casual, easy going place and the food was very good. Plates were nicely presented, good portions and really excellent prices for Sydney and for quality fish. We were able to get a table upstairs easily walking in at 1930 on a Thursday. Staff were very friendly and great feature was the... More

GREAT food here. We dined upstairs, as the downstairs was very busy and there was no room for us. I had a delicious teriyaki udon soup, and my friend had what she felt was the best eel she had ever tasted. Service was friendly. Our server did not seem to understand much English, so it was difficult to ask questions.... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
