Spectacular food, excellent service & experience. Best in Australia. High quality ingredients & presentation. We LOVE this restaurant & recommend it. It is $$$ but worth every bite ( a culinary delight you must try). Be sure to book ahead.

The place is not easy to find, especially when you find yourself in a small mall/office like building and wonder what's wrong with the directions you were given. But then you walk in, and yes, it is a quiet, nicely structured place. the staff is welcoming and very kind. I always appreciate the extra kindness and soft smile that some... More

On business trip was in need of quick and healthy meal. Tried the scampi miso soup which was very enjoyable. Then had the special - grilled king fish. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked. One of the best king fish I have ever had. Service quick and professional. Green tea, rice as you would expect.

Azuma is one of those restaurants that is hidden in an office block. Up escalators, around corners. I think this is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Sydney. Surprisingly, given its location is is not overly priced. The service is exceptional, the food is exceptional, and overall the dining experience is exceptional. It is not a flash looking restaurant,... More

We visited azuma on a recommendation of one of our taxi drivers. We were pleasantly surprised after having a little difficulty finding it. The food was wonderful, great sushi and "entrees" or "apps". Service was also great, something hard to come by in Sydney. A bit more upscale than your average street restaurant or pub, but not too fancy. Strongly... More

One of the best Japanese Restaurant in Sydney. The owner Azuma makes the best Omakase if you ask. Definitely worth going. Just remember to book minimum of one to two week in advance for the chef to prepare your personal omakase.

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 choice for anyone looking for quality Japanese in... 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
