This was our first sushi/sashimi experience - a couple of our friends ordered a variety of dishes for the table to share and we loved every one. Particular shout outs to the tuna sashimi, the tempura prawns and the chicken teriyaki. One member of the group can't eat cucumber, and this was left out of each sushi roll as requested.... More

We love Busshari because we think it is still one of the best Japanese food in Sydney without the price tag but think the standard has changed a little. (Just a little compared to say back in 2014?) Still the best place to have fresh sashimi, spider roll and miso grilled eggplant! Parking can be a nightmare in Potts Point... More

I have been here a few years ago and I left feeling that while it was worth the money, I was unimpressed with the food for such a well reviewed restaurant. I decided to return last night as most Japanese places are closed for the early part of January. Glad I returned, however this time we stuck to more fresh... More

We came here to celebrate my partner's 60th birthday while we're on vacation here in Australia. The servers are very friendly. We ordered four of their sushi rolls, and they brought them out one at a time. This was a good way for us to take our time to digest these great rolls. We ordered the Dynamite roll which was...

Great sushi chef. Good selection of sushi rolls with an array of ingredients adding a special Busshari touch. We always tend to keep ordering more ;)

We tried it without a booking on a Thursday evening and have been seated immediately. We got a beautiful spot at the chefs/sushi counter. Our friendly waitress took our order and the food came just in time. The wagyu beef tataki wasn't as good as always but anything else was just perfect. Thank you for a beautiful evening. We are...

I have been here a few times and absolutely love the sushi rolls here, everything is made freshly in front of you - literally if you sit at the sushi bar! I haven't tried anything but the sashimi and sushi so can't comment on the other dishes.

Really poor food and as its the same cost as eating there particularly disappointing - $75 for a very ordinary Chefs selection sushi plate (10 pieces for $36) , 2x prawn tempura rolls and a rainbow roll! No thanks not again!!!!
