Pricey but nice

Great Japanese food. The sukiyaki was pretty average but the sashimi was perfect. Lovely wait staff and service. We will go again.

Thought we will give this Japanese place a try and although the decor and atmosphere was nice & cozy with excellent service but if you're ordering any of the banquet menus make sure you add in extra dishes on the side. We ordered the $75 per head banquet for four and the servings were like for 2.5. Eat something before... More

We ate here on a Wednesday night between Xmas & New Year and it was full and had a great atmosphere. The lively matre'd was most entertaining. The food was excellent, we tend to rate Japanese by the Gyoza & these were as good as we have had. The sashimi was excellent although the things started going wrong when we... More

I would have been here dozens of times over past 15 years, it's an old Crows Nest stalwart and top notch Japanese food even though service is bit chaotic!

My favorite Japanese restaurant in Crows Nest. The menu is innovative and always changing. Last visit had some excellent lobster miso soup and various other dishes. Always crowded on weekends but well worth the visit.

Sapporo is a very entertaining restaurant with regular televised traditional Japanese Sumo wrestling and Rugby matches. The food is excellent (probably the best Japanese restaurant in Sydney). We have been coming to Sapporo for about 7 years. Shu (the owner) is a fantastic host who's very welcoming and always looks after his customers. Make sure you order the JFC (Japanese... More

Sapporo is a nice restaurant with great beer, and the food is Japanese and is OK but slightly overpriced

Nice fresh ingredients. The sukiyaki was $40 per person but had very good meat cuts. The chicken katsu ($19.90) was okay, a little dry but the salmon teriyaki ($19.90) was fresh and done well similar in taste like Toraya Chatswood.. However, due to the size of the table for 4, they served us the chicken and fish first and until... More

I loved the authentic and delicious, fresh food at Sapporo. The sushi platter was very high quality and so was everything else! I would recommend the Waratah banquet!

We have been going to Sapporo for years. It is not a 'fancy' restaurant but the food is of the highest quality. The sushi chefs here are fantastic. When the kids were younger it sometimes took too long in busy times to get them fed but that was probably more our timing than theirs. Simply wonderful sushi and sashimi with... More
