We ate very good food here and it was obvious from the busy time they had with many customers, it was a regular eating place for locals. Our meal was the set menu of teriyaki chicken and tempura. Delicious miso soup and rice accompanied the meal. We watched the chefs swiftly prepare the many plates of sashimi and sushi. They... More

Sashimi is well above average, with great salmon belly. Service is quick. The aircon can be a bit harsh, so pick your seat carefully.

Great value for money when you go for the "all you can eat" dinner option. Service is very fast and there is no time limit, just eat until you are full. Sushi is freshly made in the restaurant and portions are large (some dishes are so large that they are better for sharing).

We came here on a Friday night a bit later in the evening for dinner and drinks. The service was average - we had to ask twice for things and were not told that the kitchen was closing. The food was nice but I didn't leave wanting to come back in a hurry. This restaurant also charges you if you... More

I am a regular at this restaurant which always serves up great food, at good prices and with great service. If you're hungry try the all-you-can-eat deal but otherwise a full meal won't set you back much at all. The must try dish is the " dragon" roll.

The $32 all you can eat deal is such good value. The food is fresh and delicious. The place is clean and comfortable. If you are a big sushi eater then this is the way to go.

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.
