“Fantastic food, ambience & staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had the set menu which included pork belly, wagyu, salmon and other delicious dishes. Staff were friendly and helpful. The jazz was chilled out. We had a fantastic time and would definitely return on our next trip to Sydney.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Dined here a couple of nights ago. I have been here quite a few times in the past and it never fails to deliver. The first dish to appear were scallops cooked in the shell, so tasty and a great start. We had sweet shrimps which were a special - crunchy and whole, a bit of a bargain too for the price of $10. We had a series of raw and cooked fish and also some tempura. Every dish was exceptional and to top it off the desert which was some sort of cheesecake is to die for.
There is a perfect ambience to this place with live jazz in the background and it's also the service that is a standout. Our waiter Matt was very friendly, non pretentious and passionate about the food.
This restaurant is a winner for quality and value!

“Frequent customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Jazushi is hands down the best Japanese restaurant ing Sydney....possibly Australia.
The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. I visit Jazushi at least 6 times a year and have not been let down yet.
The atmosphere in Jazushi is unlike any other restaurant, downstairs there are Jaz bands each night playing live whereas upstairs the bamboo terrace is a much quieter laid back option.
I was also lucky enough to make use of their function room for my birthday and this was such a nice, intimate place to celebrate.
When you visit Jazushi, make sure you try their Gyoza as the only other place I can compare these too were my host grandmothers Gyoza in Japan........in other words, they are the best!

“Fantastic music, Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We've eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. Every dish has always been perfect and the music always top notch. The small venue makes for an intimate atmosphere that is still quite relaxed. Order about 5 small dishes to share for every 2 people. That's part of the fun - sampling a little bit of everything.

Jazz and sushi together might sound a bit pretenious but this place is anything but. If you love great food, a warm atmosphere with friendly staff and awesome live music then you'll really enjoy Jazushi.
