“Absolute Must Do Sushi Experience”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Over the past 10 days visited this place twice. First time at Sushi train/restaurant and would go again - food great, atmosphere great, staff great, customers happy. This is one very busy little place - get in by 7.00pm or be prepared to add your own name to the customer waiting list (located just inside the door). Food prepared fresh before you eyes, equally as good as it looked if not better. You could sit away from train if you wanted to but would highly recommend you experience sitting at the train, eat with your eyes, experience sushi at this place. Prices of food from train generally $3.00, some at $6.50+ - makes for a very affordable healthy eat out experience. Radison Hotel located on Liverpool Street, near Sussex Street is a great place to stay and only 20-25 metres away (see reviews on this 'tripadvisor' website).

“Great sushi and surprisingly inexpensive - highly recommended”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

As almost always, a crowded restaurant means great food and value, especially when there's heaps of choice around. Sushi Rio is not the exception. While it complies with the sushi train format (which I'm not a fan of) and all sushi and nigiri is fix-priced at $3 per plate, the real deal is to get your sushi made to order _and there's so many options_. Both raw and grilled sushi are fresh and tasty and the best sitting is at the bar, where you can watch the chefs prepare your snacks. A gold mine if your digging for sushi in the CBD, just get your number, wait to be seated and enjoy.

“Sensational!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Fresh food, inexpensive and lots of fun!
Five of us ate as much as we all needed for $150 - and we didn't hold back either.
You can't book but have to wait for a table. Take a number at the door and just hang around until your number is called. It's worth the wait. Very busy.

“A standout in the sushi train revolution !!!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

One of the originals and best when it comes to sushi trains -- looking a little worn around the edges.... but thankfully the food is fantastic and the staff brilliant..... I keep going back to this place and the food is the big draw card
