Cozy, casual, high quality, value for money Japanese restaurant. You can find everyday Japanese food as well as really nice Sushi platter.

Nakashima is tucked away down a pedestrian alley in the Rocks district; and we were so glad we found it. We arrived during happy hour, which provided us with a free round of drinks with only the requirement that our overall bill be greater than $20AUD; not a problem. Our gluttonous selves began with the dumplings that perfectly balanced textures... More

Lived up to the reviews. Ordered green salad and the sushi/sashimi combo. Both we very good. Portions very generous. I'll be back here for sure.

Seriously good food. I had no idea why aubergine existed on the planet until I visited this place. Unbelievable, best egg plant dish ever.

It was refreshing to be seated at a restaurant with staff that really wanted to be there. You could just tell they were proud of their restaurant, and so they should be. The service is quick, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. I was not sure about the size of the meal I wanted, and the staff... More

A small restuarant in the back streets. Menu has lots to choose from and is priced well. Food is very tasty. Definately try the eggplant.!

Nakashima is a hidden gem japanese resto in Sydney! It's a busy little restaurant hidden in the laneway. I came to Nakashima for dinner with 5 other friends. The resto is quite small and not very appealing in terms of decoration, just a small casual Japanese restaurant. We ordered miso soup, pork maki, sukiyaki, wafuu steak, teriyaki chicken + steamed...

Went here on a Friday night, recommend you book as diners without bookings were turned away. The menu isn't as extensive as some Japanese places, and it is a very unassuming place without much in the way of decoration and is quite small, seating maybe 40 diners in total. However, don't be put off by that. The food is very... More
