“Good sushi train, fast & fresh”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Love this place. Fresh fast sushi. Reasonably priced sushi plates. Great selection most of the time. Have been disappointed on occasion with limited selection, but this is rare. Can also order dishes from the menu.

“Skip the Pitt st venue and go straight to their sushi and noodle place at Darling Harbour!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

I agree with one of the other reviewers - the food at Pitt st Umi is not as good as it used to be. The rice quality has changed and the sushi not quite as creative. Service is ok but not great enough for me to go back again.

BUT - I was really happy to find out that they opened a second place down near the IMAX and the food there is fantastic. Back at the quality I'm used to. They also make their own noodles which are delicious.

Don't bother going to the one near the Capitol theatre but definitely go to the one down at the harbor. It's the best sushi in town.

“Maybe we caught them on a bad day.. but seems to have gone downhill”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

I used to be a regular here and considered it the best sushi train in Sydney. In the past we loved visiting for the friendly service and the huge array of beautifully crafted and creative sushi.

Visited again this week and was severely disappointed. The sushi we ordered from the menu was fine although not particularly well presented. The sushi train was terrible - a very narrow selection of not very appetising dishes and no new dishes added while we were there.

Service was lacklustre and this is still an expensive sushi train compared to others nearby. I used to recommend this restaurant to friends frequently. Would not do so again.

“Great place for pre-theatre sushi!”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

This is a high-quality, value for money restaurant for authentic Japanese sushi and other dishes presented in the "Sushi-train" mode.

It is just one block from the Capitol Theatre in Sydney, and is a great place for a quick pre-theatre dinner.
