We booked a day before for weekday dinner, requested for a la carte. Normally buffet tends to encourage people to over eating ;) We booked the earliest slot 5:30pm. They allocated maximum 2 hours dining time, which is more than enough for us as we...More

Still ok. Service was again a little slow and forgetful [my beer!]. Food was same as previous visit. Confirmed my opinion on the average rating.

PROS: -meat was great -sushi/sashimi great -easy ordering through a tablet CONS: -time limit of 1 hour order and 30 minutes to finish up -replacement BBQ grill has a cost Overall: great food and service but time limit makes you nervous for some reason.

Each table has an indoor BBQ with its own chimney, which we did not use. Can get a little smokey, at times. We did a la carte; bit odd that some dishes are served Mon-Wed, not on other days. Food was ok. Service was ok....More

Three different options. Gourmet: Seafood & Yakinuku Premium: Sashimi, Seafood, Yakinuku Deluxe: All the above and unlimited beef tongue and sushi. Clean grills and fresh seafood. I enjoyed it here. They serve wagyu beef. Ordering is done via iPad. There is a time limit.

Not just an amazing meal, it was entertaining as well. This restaurant was full of Japanese, which says something. Each table has an indoor BBQ with its own chimney, we ordered a selection of meat and fish to cook and also got salad, rice and...More

I'm a big fan of Japanese BBQ. First time eaten at Suminoya was 12 years ago & have being a regular customer over the following years as it was one of my favourite Yakiniku restaurants, the meat used to be high quality & tasty. My...More

So before you venture into this restaurant may I suggest you hone in on your rapid eating skills! No talking. Just eating! 1.5 hours of ordering is not enough time for you to sit back and enjoy your food. I went with my husband and...More

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
