There’s plenty of fish in the sea, but everyone’s true love is Sushi!
Yoshii is pretty much the ultimate Japanese function venue (which is not an accolade we give out lightly). It’s a cosy, intimate 42-seater that specialises in authentic omakase dining, so prepare to enjoy 12 small, impeccably presented and utterly delectable courses. Each one will expand your taste horizons further until they’re practically dripping out your ears! Read more
Had a great time here, a real authentic sushi dining experience. Our dinner was fantastic; we will definitely be back. – Kim Lamb
If there’s such a place as Woodwork Joinery Heaven, it probably looks a bit like Toko over in Surry Hills. A magnificent cocktail bar with a multitude of Far East-inspired beverages, as well as a killer restaurant, Toko is definitely the swankiest Japanese joint in Surry Hills. Even the crispy squid wears a tiny top hat and monocle!
Great food and service, the ambience is lively and the food is some of the best I have ever tasted. – Trish Fairhand
Fusion time! A mind-shattering mixture of French and Japanese cooking techniques, the mysterious Tetsuya presides over a culinary wonderland of decorative elegance and fresh, natural, full-bodied flavourings. Phew! You’ll experience the VIP treatment first hand as you’re guided inside with a friendly bow before the meal of a lifetime touches your lips. Read more
Was hard to explain in words our first visit to Tetsuya’s. The sitting room let us enjoy ourselves without tables on top of one another. The food is memorable and must be experienced. To top it off my table was presented gifts upon departure. A must-try; glad I finally did. – Enamored
Sake! Sushi! Sashimi! Sunken seats! Good lord, this place is Japanese! In fact, it’s so Japanese that it makes 1991’s Showdown in Little Tokyo look like 1986’s Big Trouble in Little China. All we know is that you should head down to Sake in The Rocks for some fine, fine Japanese dining. Read more
Amazing, quality modern Japanese food with professional staff, a great classy ambience and lots of interesting dishes. Popcorn shrimp, kingfish, even tacos have a unique spin, full of flavour and presented beautifully. There are lots of tables but bookings are recommended and there are also private dining rooms. – atan7
Are you in the mood for a “contemporary Japanese menu infused with traditional Japanese Izakaya dishes, with Western ingredients and modern taste?” What’s that? You are? Well then, Niji might just be the place for you. It’s nicely decked out, beautifully lit, and just generally makes you feel better about yourself once you step inside.Read more
A little expensive, but Japanese always is. The sashimi is beautifully fresh and the service is attentive and very quick. They take bookings, so dinner on Friday wasn’t an issue for 8 of us. The prawn cigars are a winner! – samantha_s
Makoto Sushi Bar is one of the oldest Japanese joints still going strong in the city, and the steady stream of delighted customers suggests it’s not going away anytime soon. And, with food, service and atmosphere like this, why would it? You’ll be happy as Larry once you’ve stuffed your face here, and that’s a fact! Read more
Makoto is my fave Japanese sushi place, second to none. I love the freshness of the ingredients, the general vibe, and the great deals they have available. I love it and always feel like it is money well spent for quality Japanese food and service. – January Girl
