Good Japanese experience

Good sized serves, tasty interesting food, cool ambience, cool location. All around a fine Japanese dining experience in Surry Hills. Service was efficient but a bit perfunctory but then again we're not really young and hip.

I've walked past Zushi for years hearing how wonderful the food is. It certainly is good quality produce but the overall good experience is average at best and heavily overpriced. The sashimi was very good, the wagyu steak was over cooked, the tuna steak wasn't very good, and the rest was average; with patchy service. One guy and girl were... More

Have been to Zushi twice now as our first experience was disappointing. Sadly the second time was not any better. The sashimi was not fresh and look quite weathered. The sushi served tasted like the sushi you'd get at a petrol station or a hospital canteen. I could not believe how unbelievably bad the food was. Unfortunately the price was... More

Stopped here for a late lunch (2pm) and regretted it. The seaweed salad that came as part of the lunch deal tasted off, and the miso soup was really salty. The spider roll tasted bland, until the tempura kicked in, it tasted like they hadn't changed the oil in quite some time. Sadly I had somewhere to be so I... More

Is you are passing the Darlinghurst to the Kings cross then you need to try the Japanese food in this lovley restaurant. A fine and nice rice and salmon. For sure will return again to try other dish.

This is a very tiny restaurant, with a sushi train and a few tables. The food is really nice. We had the large platter of sashimi, which was great, as well as various sushis. Delicious.

We had a nice meal outside on the small terrace. We had a mix a Spider rolls, Tiger rolls, deluxe sashimi, Teriyaki salmon. It was very tasty and the staff very friendly. Note we have not tried the sushi train inside. Reasonably priced.

We used to drive across the city to Zushi. However, it has now become a sushi train and I must say it was a little disappointed. It was good value but was not very inspired. Perhaps we just got it on a bad day, but I'm not sure that I will rush back.

I just had to write about the amazing meal we had here on Friday night! Sesame tuna was melt in the mouth delicious, honey prawns to die for and delicious Tiger rolls. Try the sake shots, four on a platter, my friend and I were going to order one each but luckily the waitress advised us one might be enough... More

Zushi had a fair few of the standard sushi offerings on the menu, and quite a few in house specials. A group of friends and I shared some different dishes, and each one was delicious. Fresh, and well prepared. Restaurant is tight, and noisy; I think this adds to the atmosphere of a busy night night out! Staff are friendly,... More

Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
