“EXPENSIVE SUSHI!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Ok, so we went twice here, which was ridiculous considering how extremely overpriced it was! Only because we thought O'Sushi was too out of the way WRONG!! The food is great but we spent $105 the first time and the second time $95 for four of us, (which wasn't an excessive amount of food, and with only one drink!) the second visit and ended up getting a kebab an hour later - expensive dinner!! The most expensive plate is $6.50 which is far too expensive considering the amount of food... We shouldn't really have gone the second time really, and definitely wouldn't return again, would go to Street Sushi or O'Sushi next time because they appear a heap cheaper, and offer specials too (and their reviews aren't bad either!)

“All go for kinoko”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012 via mobile

Was unsure in what to eat and walked past this busy sushi train. Busy means good in my books and my books did not fail me. Great flavours and you can't go past the tempura salmon roll.

“Better than O-Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

See O-Sushi review, but yummier. A sushi train style, very tasty, bar style sitting around the train. Take your pick off the caboose or order with a waitress. Menu also available and daily specials. Very busy in summer so get in early as they don't take bookings.
