Excellent traditional Japanese restaurant

This is an established sushi and Japanese restaurant located on the second floor of a building in Chifley Square. The setting is comfortable but uninspiring. The food was outstanding: there were four of us and we tried different dishes, mostly rolls and sashimi and everything was truly outstanding... read more

By far my preferred Japanese restaurant in Sydney and a very regular guest. Chef and owner takes pride in serving true authentic Japanese cuisine in Sydney that is true to Japan fine dining standards. One of the handful of restaurants in Sydney where you can enjoy extremely limited ad-hoc seasonal specials like bluefin toro in winter or sea urchin, you... More

We had the Shabu Shabu hot pot and it was so fabulous that memories of it brings tears to my eyes. Service was every bit as good as the food.

We visited Azuma as an impulse whilst in town to see a concert, Note to self - Book next time! They were lovely and managed to squeeze us in with a table. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. From the presentation to the taste it was all perfect. It IS expensive - but well worth it, we've... More

Greeted and taken to a table, service was attentive and professional. Chose al la carte and picked a few items of menu, sashimi of tuna and salmon was fresh and high quality brought to table on...

Been there with a lot of friends, so instead of the main area we got a private room for ourselves. The food was great (boneless chicken is king) and we ate so much we could hardly leave the place. Awesome stuff no less.

Exemplary service. Friendly but not familiar. Efficient. Lovely food. Great for any occasion. The lovely people really make this place, if not the exemplary fare.

It is a little difficult to find this restaurant, but once you do it is so worth it!! It has a lovely atmosphere.The staff are very attentive and helpful with your menu selections. We decided to be a little adventurous and try the Sea Urchin - sadly not for us!! but the sashimi was fantastic!!

It was a spur of the moment for us to stay across the road at Sofitel Sydney and we decided to try Azuma for dinner given it was my wife's birthday. The restaurant was in a bit of an odd area, but once you are in the door, it feels right and feels authentic with Japanese staff who are trained... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood 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.
