We are early, 4pm, on a Sunday. The place was still quite busy so I can imagine at peak times it's heaving as other reviews suggest. All options on the train are $3.50 (with a few sneaky more expensive ones) so it's all the basic stuff like rolls and nigiri. All good and freshly made. In front of you is... More

I like this place not just because of the very enthusiastic greetings from all staff including chefs. I tend to order the sushi of the menu, and only take a few items of the train, because by now i know exactly what i want so i order it and it sits in front of me in a few minutes.. Saves... More

The sushi is presented by a moving belt. The menu is presented by an IPad. You will find a large variety of sushi here. All the plates cost $3,50 each. I would recommend the scampie from the menu. Perfectly prepared and really fresh.

My son ate here. I just sat and watched as I am not Sushi Fan. There was a wide selection on the sushi train and you can order specific sushi through the interactive screen in front of you. All Sushis were 3.50 with a 5% discount if you pay cash. My son enjoyed his choices.

I have never tried this type if dining before. Every meal i tried was new to me and i loved every dish. I had previously had elements of most of the dishes in other meals, except tofu, and was exceptionally suprised by the flavour combinations. And the price was good. $37 fed two of us. I will definitly be back... More

Hungry and reluctant to let any of the delicacies on the sushi train pass by, I was wonderfully satisfied by the fresh seafood and tangy seaweed treats. The iPad ordering system for extras is easy and quick and the 5% discount for cash left me with only a modest dent in my wallet. I shall be back!

I don't ever eat in here, always take away as it's far to crowded! The sushi is absolutely fantastic. Super fresh and prepared to order why you wait - all for $3 per plate. The wait time is a little on the long side, but for the quality of the product you get - it's well worth it.

We still frequent this place but the last few times its been disappointing due to: 1: They now have those touch Pads at your table from which you order. They are clunky and to me inconvenient as they often freeze up and you end up tapping away for ages. 2. The place has become too popular so the wait time... More

Located at Sussex Street, one of the most crowded area in the suburb, Sushi Rio is one of the recommended restaurants in Sydney. It is located at the corner of the street, very strategic place. The taste? So fresh and delicious! You can pick sushi(s) from the 'conveyor belt' and you can order it from the menu. What are recommended?... 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.
