I've eaten here a few times now and the sushi is consistently good. As my benchmark I've eaten at 3-star sushi restaurants in Japan; the sushi here is nothing like as good but it is nevertheless surprisingly good. Unless you're going to pay considerably more this sushi will be as good as you'll find.

Pricing is $3.50 per plate in the vast majority of cases. It is a sushi-train experience with touch screens to order whatever you want. I enjoy the tuna and scallop nigiri.

Stumbled across this venue whilst looking for some Japanese cuisine. The menu is vast and they use iPads for ordering, so hot food arrives hot and you can custom order. I liked this feature very much. We also arrived at a time when all plates were one set price, again, this helped with budgeting for lunch that day. Would recommend, clean, friendly and food is fresh.

Sushi Hotaru is a hidden gem. Located on the lower level in The Galleries building. The sushi is fresh and delicious. Choose as the dishes pass by on the sushi conveyer belt or order direct from your personal iPad. Each dish was $3.50 with a few exceptions. Every roll was tasty and definetly order a few hand rolls. They were great! I could not recommend this place enough for sushi in Sydney. Can't wait to dine here again one day!
