Very fresh fish

The food was great and well presented. Prices were fairly reasonable for the portion size. We ate the Wattle sushi platter, the fish looked very fresh.

This is a nice little place to watch the sumo and other sports. The menu has a good selection of dishes but once you start ordering if sharing the price does mount up. I ordered the chefs special salmon and was a bit disappointed in the portion size. The entree selection is gorgeous. Great place to just drop by and... More

Went here for a farewell work lunch. Good variety on the menu the chilli beans are great, however the wagu beef was chewy and not as expected. Service and price were good though

In my few months back working in Sydney the Sapporo at Crows Nest has become one of my favourites. The food is excellent as is the service and the prices represent good value for money, especially the "Lunch Specials".

I've been coming here for years, and I thoroughly recommend it to you. Shu and his staff do their best to make sure the food is top notch Japanese tucker. The proof of their success is that you'll always find many Japanese fining here, and they all recommend it highly. So do I. The Sushi Bar is authentic and prepares... More

Ate here with friends - beer is good, spicy edamame is tasty, sushi is yummo and the Japanese fried chicken? So good! I love the atmosphere at Sapporo. The staff are friendly and the prices mid-range. Great value compared to other Japanese places in the area. Great for watching the rugby on the big screen out the front too!

Sapporo has been in Crows Nest for at least 15 years, probably longer. Reliably good food and always friendly service. They import seasonal produce from Japan eg snow crab legs and will screen the rugby/sumo on the screen outside.

For many years we have been regular guests at this venerable restaurant which used to frequented by such Australian greats like the Late Ruth Cracknel. But lately we have been disappointed with the ambiance and cleanliness of this restaurant. A renovation is long overdue. Not just of the main hall but of the kitchen too. Food is good but service...

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...
