Good for a quick meal

Went with a friend during lunch rush hour and were seated immediately. Bento boxes hover around the $18-$20 range. We each got one with wagyu, I chose the yakiniku and he opted for the one with miso sauce. Food came out within 5 mins, in huge sectioned bowls about 25-30cm in diameter. It all went... read more

This has to be one of the top japanese restaurant in Sydney. My boyfriend and I came here for a special occasion celebration and it was a perfect place to do so. All the food we ordered was delicious and fresh. And more importantly, service was really good. Sashmi Boat - Every single piece of fish is fresh and just... More

Went out for a work function and we decided to get a bit of everything. All seven of us were very happy with the food and there was nothing left, except maybe a couple of Edamames. Service was spot on and all reasonably priced. Thanx.

Great quality of Sushi in the bento sets if you can brave the suits. always packed at lunch, but food is worth it. Need to book for either 12 or 115 which can be frustrating. The Shogun bento isn't cheap but fills you up. Have been coming here for ten years plus, never been dissappointed.

This has to be my favourite Japanese restaurant in Sydney, even though i'm not a japanese myself but I know its authentic. Try to order a sashimi boat if you have 4 people or more. Everything on the menu is reasonably priced and most importantly, as fresh as you can get it in a restaurant. Another one of my favourite... More

I went there for lunch and ordered Kurobuta pork neck Don. It was a big portion size and served with pickled vegetable. I found it really worth the 13.80 dollars.

Really enjoyed having some light, fresh sushi before we popped into the Capitol Theatre to watch a show. The head waiter arranged our food straight away so that we wouldn't miss the first few minutes of the show. Nice touch!

Very good, wish I'd had more time to explore the other dishes. Cocktails are a bit too sweet, probably to match the dishes. Tidy presentation and service.

Great japanese restaurant in the center of Sydney. The varieties in the assortment of nigiri sushi are many and flawless, the tempura is balanced, tonkatsu pork loin is tasty and filling. The service is friendly and the value for money is good. The most of asian customers try the hot pot: to be recommended for those who want to get... More
