If you like Japanese food, you will love this.

My new favorite Japanese restaurant in Sydney. Food, value & service... All great. Worth the trip to Crows Nest. I had lunch, their dinner menu looks even better.

And if you hate modern jazz music you may not like the soundtrack. But the food is wonderful. So please don't go as we currently never need to reserve a... More

Best sashimi I have had - freshest, highest quality tuna. Great, diverse menu with plenty of tasty dishes to choose from. Friendly service. So good my friends and I, all serious sushi lovers, went there for dinner 3 times during our 20 day visit.

My wife and I selected 3 entrees and 2 mains which was more than enough to leave us feeling very full. The prawn and scallop dumplings were superb, as were the crab flavoured fish... More

I like the sushi served at Hana Jurin. The selection of fish are fresh. The price and serving porting was reasonable.

We visited this great restaurant recently for dinner. The menu is always full of delicious cuisine. We had two entrees and three main dishes,which was ample food for the two of us. You must try the Buta-Tama Pork as a main followed by BBQ wagu beef. Vegetable tempura. The crab filled spring rolls were amazing too. All in all a... More

We had lunch at this lovely restaurant. Very quiet once you get inside off main road. Staff very polite and attentive. We had zucchini flowers stuffed with prawns, gyoza, eggplant, blackened miso cod and edamame. It was all delicious. Great fresh Japanese. No complaints! Will be going back very soon.

Super-fresh seafood and friendly service make this a stand-out option amongst all the Japanese restaurants in Crows Nest. Try the squid and scallop dumplings - unusual but delicious!!
