This is really an excellent place and I am torn between giving four or five stars. It's near Hyde Park. It is really a sushi train place of the kind that you find all around the city but you can order from a menu and there are some tables on the side where you can sit away from the belt.... More

The food was excellent, the sushi juicy and fresh. The variety was big, one can order extras from a menu except from the the plates that pass in front of you. But the service was incompetent, uninterested completely. We had to ask repeatedly to receive a small plate for the soy sauce or to order a drink. It's a pity.

This may not be a fair review as we just returned from Japan a couple of weeks ago. We unconsciously compared this with the restaurants there. There is a big gap in both quality and service. Oh and the prices, Sydney almost double that of Japan. There is no bookings, customers are required to write their name, number of people... More

Definitely order a Teriyaki chicken hand roll a Tempura king prawn hand roll. You'll need to get there early if you want to eat around 5 - 6 pm as there's almost always a line to get in.

Makoto at World Square in Sydney is always busy, as such their sushi is lovely and fresh. We had great fresh salmon and tuna belly here. The only dish that was disappointing was the mixed tempura. I think it was the the first one for the night and the batter didn't taste great.

Similar comments to other nearby sushi restaurants: Very nice atmosphere, food is impeccably prepared. Service very quick and friendly. Watching Japanese chefs handle and prepare food is a pleasure in itself. The fare is treated with a degree of care and reverence that reflects, in my mind at least, the inherent value, of the resources we catch in the sea,... More

We go here around once a month for a sushi lunch. We always try to arrive around 12pm and sit at the bar. The sushi quality is very good, there is a good variety and they have interesting specials. Service is attentive.

I have no idea how this place is so popular. We had sashimi to go. It had skin still on it and was not even chewable. I walked back to the restaurant, they made it again, and again it had skin on it. It looked like they took the worst part of the fish and got absolutely as much out... 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.
