When Yuzu first opened it was full every day. The extensive menu and the fast quality service made it a great destination for a long meal or a quick lunch. But not long after it opened, it "closed for kitchen renovations". Upon reopening the menu was simpler, the staff were all replaced, service was average, and the place was 2/3 empty. The food on offer was still good, but it has lost something.

Excellent ! The quality of the products (the chicken teryaki <3) was really good for such a low price. I can't wait to go there again and taste their sushi (made in front f you by the sushi master) ! ^^

We had a scoopon voucher for a 7 course tasting menu for two. We paid for it 49 AUD. For the price the dinner was an absolute steal! We arrived with our 10 months old daughter which the staff welcommed with a smile, eventhough this place doesn´t normally get babies (guessing from no high chairs and no changing facilities :-)). Even though we broke a plate about 5 mins after our arrival, the staff was very nice and was always asking if they can bring something for our daughter to eat (she tried half of the dishes we had and munched on half bowl of rice).

The first few courses of the dinner were amazing. The overbaked eggplant, the tofu ago, three sashimis - wow! The beef dishes were the only small let down - the quality of the meet could have been better. We also loved the way they serve their cold sake (see picture). Very cool!

Overall fantastic experience. We felt really wellcome, we loved the food and the place had a good vibe. We came as first people (5,30pm) and within an hour the restaurant was half full.
