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

We have been to our fair share of Japanese restaurants in Sydney from fine dining to casual. Sushi suma remains at the top of our list. Service is always polite and attentive. The combinations are always the best deal and filling. Sushi is beautifully made, sashimi always fresh and in generous portions. Our favourite is always the sashimi salad which... More

Its been a good 18months since ive been to Sushi Suma, and apart from now being able to make a reservation, not much else has changed. For $34 we ordered one of the meal deals....and as always an abundance array of delectable pleasures turn up. One of my favourites are the crab croquettes...creamy crab filling encased in a golden brown... More

Used to patronize Sushi Suma back when I was a student in the early 2000s. Returned to Sydney recently and dropped by for nostalgia's sake. Wasn't disappointed. Food was still good, and the portions very satisfying.

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.

If you order four dish they will bring all together......the table is so small that you can eat comfortable. We did not ask for the... More

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.
