Have eaten here a few times, variety is excellent . If you can't get it in the train you can order it on the touch screens. Hand rolls are excellent. Huge election and really good price. Loved it!!

This is the place we must visit every time when we are in sydney. Over the years, the price has gone up from $3 to $3.5, sushi size has become smaller. Nevertheless the quality of the sushi is still great. Try the soft shell crab taco.

A great range of sushi and sashimi options. Very well priced. All of our dishes were very fresh. Gets very busy at lunch as most dishes are $3.50. Curently one of the top sushi trains in the cbd.

Went here based on reviews as wanted a sushi train but also be able to order, and didn't want top end prices. This was good. We mainly ordered freshly made sushi and it was usually out within 5-10 minutes. Really tasty and good variety. Not expensive.

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

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

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.
