“Fantastic food and great service”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

The restaurant provides Japanese nouvelle cuisine. We let the waiter bring in dishes at his discretion for our working dinner. Each item was superb and the deserts were to die for. Highly recommended.

“Go to Modern Japanese!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Been to Sokyo countless times, delicious food with modern twist on Japanese classics, cocktails and wine list are incredible. One of my favourite places to eat in Sydney. Bar staff are knowledgable and will be happy to get creative with your drinks if asked and they won't fail to impress!

“Very expensive meal coupled with screaming kids”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

My expectations were very high however I found this restaurant overpriced. The food is okay, some dishes good but if you want to have a dish from each section of the menu (which is what the waitstaff recommend) then expect to pay a pretty high price. We dined near a table of extremely noisy (screeching) kids and no-one asked them to keep it down which really detracted from the experience for the other people around.
The waiter was friendly but spent a good ten minutes explaining every aspect of the menu. A skill would be to read your customer and if its obvious they already know a little about the food on the menu then don't overdo the explanations.
All in all I would not go back, I'm sure there is better restaurants.

“Best Japanese in Sydney”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Amazing service, food is delicious and atmosphere is briliant. The bar does great cocktails and is a perfect after work drinks spot. It's cool that you can see the head chef in the kitchen. One of the best restaurants in Sydney. Try the miso cod!

“Ok, but no wow factor ”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

Thought I would try out one of premier restaurants at Star City only to be disappointed. The meal was overpriced, the staff were good but had it not been to the proximity of the casino I do not think this restaurant would survive.

Verdict: would not go out of my way for, in fact besides the decor I think the food court would have been just as good
