Been there last Saturday evening for a birthday dinner, Great location, easy to find and get there by public transport or car, Saturday night was hard to find a parking spot around on surrounding street, nearby carpark is full by 7:00pm, coz it's in the vicinity of Sydney Chinatown, distant walking or public transport is recommended. No lift to the... More

Surroundings: Slightly industrial, awesome warehouse vibe, low and calm lighting, private seating, dark and cool surfaces. Great location, easy to get to. Service: Electronic menu, you don't have to try and flag an attendant, fast and accurate waiters - the set up of the ordering system changes up the restaurant experience, and I found it led me to focus more...

The service is incredibly fast,the menu is endless,very hard to find something to complain about. The only restaurant in Sydney that serves food until late night. Absolutely perfect. Worth of the extra price.

All the dishes were so fine, even our cocktails. Nice decoration and good customer service. The restaurant didn't feel very Japanese though, and we paid hefty.

I enjoyed the touchscreen experience very much as I haven't seen much menus in Sydney that offer this excellent choice. There was no time lag and came out accurately with no problems. I was able to relax (an important thing for me) and the food was a delight

We walked in around 8pm on a Saturday evening. Waited 20min to be seated. You order using the computer on the table, an easy concept as all the menu is represented with pictures. The first dish was out in minutes. Overall the place is nice, beautiful decor and nice staff but the bill doesnt match the quality or portion size... More

Delicious, mouth-watering, reasonably priced Jap food by Wagaya. Stumbled upon this amazing jap restaurant while touring around Sydney Chinatown. This restaurant is located near Market City and there is a light rail stop nearby. Even though the place was crowded, I waited only 15mins for a table on a weekend without reservation. Service was excellent, prompt and efficient. That was... More

Food was good, booked a table for 8. Service was good. It was a bit noisy around our table, which made discussions not that easy. I can recommend the sushian-roulette to everybody. It's hilarious

I went to Wagaya (haymarket) recently with my boyfriend for a date night, the wait was a bit long but thats always expected when you don't book ahead. Its so much fun ordering by using the touch screen menus. Most dishes were delicious, especially the grilled salmon sushi but when it came to desert (green tea ice cream) I found... More
