I'm a die-hard Jap food fan and this restaurant is a good balance for affordability and quality. Compared to the other Japanese restaurants in the area, they are relatively cheaper but the food quality and selection is still very good. This has become my "I want Japanese but dont want to spend too much restaurant" now. Sake menu is diverse... More

We ate here on a very busy Saturday night. The service was unbelievably slow but the food was definately worth the wait. (I'm not sure why raw fish could take over 45minutes to arrive and would have loved for them to offer some snacks / bread while you wait) We had sushi and sashimi and both the salmon and tuna...

I have been here many times to try the a la carte selections and seasonal specials such as the humble lobster miso shiru (soup). Truly spectacular and the clarity of the broth mixes well with the huskiness of the miso paste. I had a simple Zaru Soba (cold noodles) with a small plate of tempura mix to complement the wide...

I come here every few months with my family. Great atmosphere and usually a rugby match showing on the big screen. You can order a la carte or from one of the set course combos - about 8 - 12 dishes for $50 - 60. Draught Japanese beer, range of wines and sake. Also BYO. The sushi, sashimi, beef, chicken... More

Sapporo has been in Crows Nest for years. They have very good sushi, though a bit pricey. Don't try to go there on a footy night if you're not a footy fan, it'll be packed with TV displays of the game!

Very good food and a great selection of sake. The place can be pretty noisy but there's a good atmosphere and outdoor (street) seating if inside gets too crowded. They have a projector screen at the outdoor seating and when the sumo world championships are on it is shown on the screen - very interesting setup. If you're a rugby... More

A very dear Japanese friend took us to this excellent restaurant during a one night stop over in Sydney. What a wonderful experience The food was devine. We choose a banquet that we felt gave a fabulous range of tastes my favourite being the spinach with sesame dressing closely followed by the sashimi and my husband loved the raw fish... More

OK, I have to admit, I was here as a guest of work colleague so I did not have to pay. The food was great, we had the spicy Edamama to start, which was great. My colleague did most of the ordering and the food was great. I have always loved smoked eel and this one did not disappoint. The... More

Sapporo is a great Japanese Restaurant, particularly well-suited for Rugby fans. It can get noisy, especially when there is a game on. I love their extensive gluten-free menu and good selection of sake. Would definitely dine here again!

6 adults and one child had a very convivial night at this well established restaurant. Service was good and the food was enjoyed by all. My wife and I shared the Sukiyaki with Premium Wagyu Beef which at the discounted price of $39 was good value, plus the others had assorted sushi and sashimi, Chicken Teriyaki and popcorn prawns.
