    Good sushi train. I like that they've bucked the trend in sydney to offer all plates at the same price, as you get more variety and better quality. Lots of seats.

  • Powerhouse Museum
    Museums    Ultimo, NSW

    This place is huge. I spent 4 hours with a family member visiting Sydney for the day and we wandered around, looked, poked, prodded and talked about all manner of things. The exhibits are a good lead in to conversations and discussions. It's fun to share the discovery with someone else.

    I've never been before and I'd definitely consider going again. It was non-school holidays so the number of little tackers was quite small if that's the kind of thing that would set you off.

    I feel their strengths are focussing on the items of yesteryear: Interesting things about locomotives or magnets, moon landings, or the history of computers, etc. Some of the permanent exhibits are showing signs of wear and need some modernising. A visual display panel that tried to highlight the wonderful modern world of satellite imagery really felt very dated and out of step with what's being done now. The phone in your pocket has better satellite imagery than what was being shown.

    That aside, I still had a fact filled and interesting stroll through a bunch of topics and thoughts. Definitely worth the cost of entry (which by the way is very reasonable at just $15 for an adult ticket).

    A surprising find was that the little cafe on level 3 (accessible from street for the public too) served a really nice iced tea and mini baked cheesecake. So I had my sugar fix to keep wandering around.

    In summary? Good. Probably great for families with kids. some modernising for modern topics required. All round worth it. Recommend.

    Was surprised to find that the takeaway sushi in this store is ok. Certainly a lot better than you find from other supermarkets takeaway options that always seem to have hard stale rice. This store makes it on premises and it's pretty fresh.

    With over 300 different whiskies. This is a must for the whisky enthusiasts.

    so far I only have tried the piadinas and the pastries and I thought they were outstanding. really flavourful, not heavy for the stomach, fresh ingredients. a piadina is certainly enough for lunch and the price is right. excellent excellent staff, friendly and courteous, they always make you feel welcome. I am fairly new to Sydney, but I think this place compare very favorably to many establishments in that area, both in terms of food and service.

      A friend at work had a piadina and she thought it was pretty good too. Will have to get one myself.

    Friendly staff. The bacon & egg roll is pretty good. Good fresh ingredients with a real smoky flavour to the bacon. Food and coffee was prepared quickly and with a smile.

    There's plenty of seating inside, and a small outside seat that's only good for 1 or two do have a casual coffee & bite to eat. They seem to have a pretty extensive food preparation service on site, though, I'd only got into the bacon and egg roll for breakfast. Will try some other options next time.

      This was true on the day I experienced this, however, unfortunately there's been more than one occasion since this time that I've had a less than enjoyable experience. I'll include that in a new review.
