It's a very cramped space. The bento box is reasonably priced but you get what you pay for (or less). I ordered the teriyaki beef bento box and found white powder on the beef - food additive? The sign of $20 minimum for card payment is not prominently displayed - feels slightly cheated.

Dropped in for dinner after work. Basic décor but cheerful. Good menu selection. Quick and polite service. Good food. We had a couple of shared entrée dishes and mains with pork and salmon. Tasty. Reasonably priced. Not a plush fine dining restaurant but a place to get a decent meal, service and price. Enjoyed.

We went to this place because a families website told us it has a kids' play area... Upon arrival, we found a tiny corner with a gate and a tv above, on the wall... the space is literally about a metre wide! No toys, no crayons, nowhere for a kid to sit and draw! What a shocker! NOT kids' friendly!!!... More

Good value for money and since the restaurant offers half size dishes you're able to try a little bit of everything.

We had limited time for a meal before we had to be somewhere. Walking down Sussex St, we viewed the menu in the window of Niigata. I was taken by the Sushi Box and the number of people dining there. The service was very good, quick and efficient and my dish was great. The other dish ordered, Teriyaki Beef was... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants to visit when I head to Sydney. The menu is quite extensive with a lot of variety to try different offerings from the Japanese cuisine. The menu even has offerings of half serves on many of the dishes so you can try 2 or 3 things without breaking your bank or your waistline.... More

I have eaten here on many occasions and this time I was disappointed. The staff are friendly and attentive, but the food this time looked like it was just thrown together. The soft shell crab had no taste, and the sushi box was falling apart and looked like it was thrown into the box package. On previous occasions this was... More

I order pizza with a side of lotus chips and a matcha drink. Yum! I always pass this place on the way to the food court. Now I won't be ignoring it. I am going to bring some friends with me next time I am in town.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
