The food here is tasty and the atmosphere is great. Generally speaking however, I have had better food elsewhere. The selling point for me was the desert, dragon eggs, but I was underwhelmed.

One of the best sushi places in Sydney. Located right on The Rocks and near the famous Opera House. The food was fresh and tasty. The Dragon Egg dessert is a must have. The staff was extremely friendly. The menu is simple and nicely curated.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
