The service was poor, the food for what it was over priced. I left being disappointes becausw i thought i found a... More

we were a group of 3 and shared many dishes with every dish meeting and often beating expectations . Its a second floor of an office building that looks deserted at night but worth to get up that escalator . Very tasty modern Japanese cuisine - was a bit noisy and less then ideal for a 3 hour business dinner... More

I ate here twice over two nights staying in Sydney. I wish I could eat once more during my trip but my daughter was keen on trying new things. The Sashimi is the best here in my experience and I am always happy with it every time I eat here. I love the chocolate mouse too. Very rich but not... More

Azuma is not cheap and it is not pitched at walk in's. It is very much pitched at the suit crowd and amongst them it is very popular. The food is very good, tables sizes are reasonable and there is a decent gap between them so you can speak without worrying about being overheard. If you really want privacy, they... More

This is our 3rd or 4th visit and we came back as always for the degustation menu. After maybe a 6-9 month gap, sadly this time it was not so good. The quality was lacking and the flair and imagination of the dishes was just not there. A change of staff perhaps? If you are taking your partner for a... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and mainly had sushi and sashimi which are excellent. This time wanted to order some other dishes and requested MSG-free as MSG is a hidden toxin which causes sleeplessness, hyperactivity, headaches, high blood pressure etc. I had assumed a restaurant of this calibre would not use MSG in pretty much...

This place is tucked away in the Chifley Plaza. We had the pre-theatre 3 course set menu. The food was excellent. Reasonably prices for Sydney. A good place to eat if you are staying across the road at the Sofitel. Would definately eat here again.

Serves very good japanese food. Service crew does a good job to attending to your orders promptly. Only one branch so far, located at Queensbay Mall, Penang. Prior reservation required on weekends and especially dinners. Usually they are quite packed up. Value set meals are being served too. I personally love the garlic rice, which you can opt to change... More

Great place for a nice lunch, including for business. It's a bit on the expensive side but the quality if good and portions are generous.

Was a very good meal with great service. Just know that it is in a shopping center, but don't let that deter you.
