“Japanese with elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Wednesday night and with no booking they managed to seat my husband and myself with ease. Decor beautiful, restaurant was well set out and unlike a lot of newer places it was quiet and we could talk to ease,
Service could not be faulted with the waiter and waitress both courteous and unobtrusive. Menu was not daunting and covered all basis.
The sashimi was perfect and can also recommend the soft shell crab. They also have great choices of hotpots for winter nights .
Our mains were plentiful and all servings were more than adequate and well presented. You would not leave this place feeling hungry.

“Best Japanese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Probably the oldest surviving Japanese restaurant in Sydney, Shiki combines atmosphere with excellent cuisine prepared by masters. It's gradually moving from traditional Japanese to more modernistic versions but unlike many others hasn't gone too far down that track. Good wine list, friendly and efficient staff, excellent sushi and sashimi. Thoroughly recommended.

“Pleasant Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Was lucky to be accepted as the last order of the night. Ordered the Wagyu Beef set for 2 persons, and also asked for a hot soba noodle that was not on the menu, which was obliged. Food was very nice, and the pink rock salt was novel. Staff helpful and responsive. Happy to tip the staff.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013 via mobile

The first thing we noticed was the filthy carpet. Secondly the air conditioning was not turned on making the restaurant uncomfortably hot. When the edamame beans arrived some were warm, some were cold and some had only one bean instead of two inside the shell - had these been recycled? We persevered and enjoyed two fairly nice dishes but then the signature dish of wagyu beef cooked at the table on a slab of pink rock salt arrived. The beef was frozen, like an ice cube. The staff took it away and must have tried to defrost it somehow but when it was returned after ten minutes it was still frozen. We persevered no more. They did the right thing and made no charge for the beef dish but we were very disappointed. The icing on the cake was finding a dead cockroach in the ladies bathroom. Staff were, however, very friendly.
