The sushi was fresh. The portions were large and we found it to be cheap. The service was great. Very fast service. Not the most romantic setting but worth the visit

I had the "vegetarian" box and I was curious about one of the contained items - agadashi as it had weird scaly trimmings covering all the tofu but the waitress advised me that it was just tofu upon ordering. I didn't find out until I got home and did some researching that agadashi is served with Benito flakes aka fish.... More

Quick duck in for a light dinner, food was nice - not very large portions but lovely nonetheless. Atmosphere very casual.

Went to Hamachi-ya with my friends and ordered a bento box. It was delicious and had lots of variety. Reasonable price for their food.

Three of us went to Hamachi-Ya for dinner last night and enjoyed it immensely. The food was wonderful, and very large portions, and the service was excellent. A great restaurant to visit for a taste of Japan in very relaxed surroundings.

I can't resist a Bento box, tastes of everything. This box with eel was awesome...I had trouble finishing it. My partner had a sushi & soba noodle soup combo which looked just as good. We'll be back again. Great place for mid week dinner.

This small Japanese restaurant is located right next to the 1888 Hotel where I was staying in Sydney. They provide a good array of options both to eat-in and to take-away. The sushi I had was very good (and the fish very fresh). Service was efficient and I received my order very quickly.

All the staff greet you as you walk through the door and welcome you back sincerely. The quality of the sashimi is consistently very high always fresh and never from frozen product, we always order the family sashimi with scampi etc The price is reasonable for this quality and the service is good. We keep on going back

Had a late dinner here on a Saturday night and was surprised at how popular it was. The drinks menu was great value - wines at very affordable prices. The food menu had a wide selection. I ordered the bento box which was decent value given the serving size. The miso was well made, sashimi pieces were fresh and larger... More
