Crows Nest Japanese

Fresh is the best way to describe the food Sashimi platter is generous and best I have had for sometime. The host is a keen rugby follower and has memorabilia all round. Always keen to discuss sport or your favorite subject

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

Good Japanese food. We usually eat lunch which is good value. The staff are friendly & the service is good. The sashimi is very good & the sushi is made without too much sugar & vinegar. It is obvious that the owner/manager puts a lot into making it attractive to his clients

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

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.

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.
