Loved it

Order a bit more than you expect but worth every bite. Couldn't fault any of the dishes and across the table we covered most of the menu and I was left wanting to return to try the rest. Staff were good. Atmosphere felt a little cramped and casual near the front but that's probably the downside of... read more

First reviewed Sokyo in April 2014 and returned a year later to an equally outstanding meal .Once again we were pre theatre dining and the service was in keeping with our tight time frame . We were keen to do the pre theatre menu but they were unable to be flexible with the menu for members of our group who... More

Had a lovely evening with friends and family! The vibe was great! Loved the food! Presentation was great! Service was also good! Would definately come down again. One of the best fine dining Japanese restaurant I've been to in a while. Wine menu was exceptional!

This is about my 10th visit to Sokyo and with so many restaurant options in Sydney to go to the same place more than a few times is pretty unusual for me and is a reflection of how much I enjoy it. I've eaten at all the high end Japanese restaurants such as Sush-e, Sake and Toko and I consider... More

Lobbed in Sydney late today, staying at the hotel at The Star, so wandered down for a quick light meal. Decor is a bit garish, but that's Sydney and the Star. Bar and table service, sat at a table. Tuna sashimi and red snapper tempura were really excellent! Beef robata so so. Curious then as to why a couple of... More

I was lucky enough to have the experience of dining at Sokyo, and given the number of restaurants in this area, what a great choice. Chef Chase Kojima comes to town via the infamous Nobu. I started the evening by having one of Chefs cocktails – Chasing Kojima - Yuzu Sake, pink grapefruit, lemongrass and elderflower. Once seated in the... More

Booked online for pre show dinner. 530 and 545 options at 55 dollars per person plus drinks. Excellent selection of drinks. Three courses all delicious - beef, prawn, scallops, salmon, ribs and cuttlefish. Perfect service from drinks to food. Plenty of time to get to show and short walking distance to lyric theatre. Best Japanese food in Definitely going back... More

Sokyo was a fantasic dining experience. Everything I had heard and read was justified and I was amazed at the final bill - I had expected a much higher price tag. That, combined with the delicious food and excellent service will have me coming back many times.
