Lovely & local

I can't resist a Bento box, tastes of everything. This box with eel was awesome...I had trouble finishing it. My partner had a sushi & soba noodle soup combo which looked just as good. We'll be back again. Great place for mid week dinner.

Three of us went to Hamachi-Ya for dinner last night and enjoyed it immensely. The food was wonderful, and very large portions, and the service was excellent. A great restaurant to visit for a taste of Japan in very relaxed surroundings.

This small Japanese restaurant is located right next to the 1888 Hotel where I was staying in Sydney. They provide a good array of options both to eat-in and to take-away. The sushi I had was very good (and the fish very fresh). Service was efficient and I received my order very quickly.

All the staff greet you as you walk through the door and welcome you back sincerely. The quality of the sashimi is consistently very high always fresh and never from frozen product, we always order the family sashimi with scampi etc The price is reasonable for this quality and the service is good. We keep on going back

Had a late dinner here on a Saturday night and was surprised at how popular it was. The drinks menu was great value - wines at very affordable prices. The food menu had a wide selection. I ordered the bento box which was decent value given the serving size. The miso was well made, sashimi pieces were fresh and larger... More

Certainly the best value Sushi place I've seen in Sydney. If you're after a good feed, generous portions and a reasonably priced bottle of beer, you can't go wrong.

I stayed around the corner and wandered out in search of a bite to eat. Very nice sushi platter and great miso soup. They cheerfully replaced some sushi I couldn't eat because of an allergy (my error - I I forgot to exclude crab as well as prawn).
