Lovely elite venue. Boyz club feel. Full of lawyers and bankers. Sushi and sashimi box was huge at $42. Bit disappointed at not being offered green tea even when I asked for it. Great venue for fancy Japanese.

Our dinner for two at Azuma was disappointing. We were expecting something special, but the experience was pretty pedestrian. Perhaps instead of a simple dinner we should have ordered the omakase or some fancy sake so they could show us what they could do. The service was definitely cursory. Our food was good, but without the typical Japanese attention to... More

I was at Azuma for a business lunch. The sashimi and tempura bento box was very good. It gives you a little taste of many items. The service was attentive and the food came to the table quickly - which was helpful on a tight time frame.

Azuma was recommended by our hotel and although a bit tricky to find the search for the entrance was soon forgotten when the delicious food arrived. We had the degustation menu and enjoyed every dish. Each course was explained by the attentive and friendly waiter, the food was fresh, tasty and very well presented. The one selection was good too.... More

We were looking forward to this restaurant as it was highly recommended by our hotel concierge. And it didn't disappoint... mostly not, anyway. But I have to first say something about where this restaurant is situated. It is on the first level of the Chifley Plaza. There is more than one entrance to the plaza with different escalators and elevators... More

Delightful and completely scrumptious. Service was attentive, flavours were delicate, fresh and tasty. An all round exceptional meal with a good wine selection available.

Good but not great Japanese food. The food is always very fresh. Great venue for business lunches, especially the private dining rooms.

We were staying at the Sofitel and had a late lunch so we were looking for something light for a late dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to see a Japanese restaurant right across the road, which had good reviews so in we went. I'm afraid this restaurant doesn't have the ambience to command such high prices. We perused the menu... More

I went on a Wednesday lunchtime and had no trouble getting a table for myself. Wanting to try a variety I order the Omakase with a glass of Pinot Gris. First course was a selection of three sashimi. I found these a little thick (which I know is a sign of generosity) but also a little chewy. The tempura followed... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
