Amazing Lunch

I was treated to a business lunch at Azuma and it exceeded my expectations. I had the sashimi bento box and everything was fresh and perfectly cut and the miso was piping hot and perfectly balanced. Others had the beef teriyaki special bento and raved about their meals as well. An excellent... read more

Went there with my partner on a Friday night with a prebooked table. It was a bit tricky to find it tucked away on the 3rd floor of an office tower. But I have never tasted such fresh and sweet tuna and salmon sashimi in my life; the choc mousse with berries literally melt in the mouth. The veggie tampura... More

Had the 7 course Omasake (see photos) on a weeknight. The decor was very ordinary for a Japanese restaurant. The service staff was very courteous but they were badly lacking in service. Insufficient product knowledge such as mistaking scampi for lobster and inaudible course description. No cutlery provided for one of the courses and had to request twice as the... More

We spend a lot of time in Japan, so appreciate genuine Japanese food and service. Azuma always do a great job and have an excellent selection of dishes and sake.

I came here with a client and we had the five course Degustation $70pp) with Wine. It reaaly was a great meal and very nicely balanced. The Sashimi to start had two pieces each of Kingdish, Tuna and Salmon - beautifully presented (see photo). The Tempura was perfect, a very light batter which trapped in the taste. The Wagyu Sirloin... More

This is a delightful restaurant for all lovers of Japanese food. The sea urchin sashimi was delicious. I then had snapper fish head and collar. There was not much flesh as it was literally head and collar with lots of bones, but it was very tasty with a lovely saki and mirin soup. I then had miso with scampi. All... More
