Our Last visit was late at night and luckily we didn't have to book and got straight in. Food is great, Fresh and tasty good portions. Restaurant is very busy and tables are in very close proximity so might not be the best for a romantic dinner. Lighting is pretty bright too. Service is was good... read more

I think this restaurant totally nailed it. They do not overly expensive and not too Japanese. It is definitely a japanese restaurant caters for westerners. The set meals are reasonably priced and the portion size is huge for one serving. I went there with my sister and friends. Ordered a main and share another main with my sister, it was... More

I once was a regular here and stopped by for dinner tonight. I was bitterly disappointed by the food and the terrible attitude of the staff. I will never eat there again.

This is a very famous local Japanese restaurant, and you have to book a table, or you have to wait at least 30 mins. All the foods are great, especially the Teriyaka Chicken and Yakiniku.

This has been one of my favourite Japanese in Sydney for years- order well and volume, quality and value will be yours! Tips- order the combos, they are incredible value and get to the restaurant by 6.30 at the very latest or expect a long wait.

I have been going to this little Japanese restaurant for more than 3 times. Food is very nice and great value. For less than $15, you could have a set which is enough for 2 persons. Although there are not a lot of choices for the lunch set but still enjoyable. The only thing is that it is always busy... More

I have been going to Sushi Suma for about 8 years. It is a Surry Hills institution. The device can be bad at busy times as they seem to be understaffed and they run. They used to be in a smaller location a couple of doors up and I think they need a bigger premises or utilize the upstairs Rea... More
