“Still kicking Goals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

I ate at Go-zen a couple of days ago for dinner - the first visit in over two years and happy to report it has not changed a bit. Still hard to find, still basic and simple and a little lacking in atmosphere and still the best Japanese food (that I have found) in Sydney for $20-30/head including drinks.

Innovative, fresh, plentiful and totally Japanese.

On a side note, if you're from overseas you may not be familiar with the concept of BYO - Bring Your Own alcohol - many small restaurants will charge you a small 'corkage' fee and let you bring your favourite wine or beer - this restaurant is one of them!

“Great food, not much ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2011

Really good, fresh & creative Japanese cuisine in a small off the beaten track location. (The address says it's on Spit Rd., but it's really around back). None-the-less the food is outstanding and the service is friendly and helpful. The place is small, so if there are more than two people dining, get a booking or consider take-out.
