Came to Sydney with 2 friends for an afternoon ballet performance at the Lyric Theatre and arrived early for a leisurely lunch. We just set out from Central and decided to try the first place we liked the look of. Yumei is very conveniently located near a light rail stop. We shared a dish as an entree and then had... More

I have to say it’s been too long since we’ve dined at Yumei Japanese restaurant, Capital Square. If you love Japanese cuisine and going to the theatre then this is definitely the place for you. I use to work in and around this area and Yumei was a regular haunt. For a restaurant in this location the prices are more... More

We usually go there with a scoopon voucher to spend 60$ but we finished ordering more so paying the difference.Tunas wasn't as red as expected but scallops were really soft,curry wafting beef was great,sashimi always great and teriyaki chicken tasty as always. Will definitely return!

Fresh seafood and well presented Japanese food. We had a half price scoopon so ordered a bit of everything, sushi, karaage, oysters and tempura. They have a buzzer on each table which the waiters answered within seconds. $49 with the scoopon including a couple of beers and soft drinks.

We visited Yumei for a pre-theatre lunch. I wish we hadn't. The team serving, whilst polite were a little clueless, especially about gluten free. The pictures in the menu bore absolutely no resemblance to the meals that arrived. I have never experienced gyoza quite like it and do not care to ever again. The karaage chicken came with a mustard... More

Food is lovely although I object to being told I will be charged $0.50 for usign EFTPOS (this is not a CREDIT Card) just because they want to encourage a cash business.

Second visit for lunch. Service was a little slow this time round and the restaurant was almost empty. Lots of meal options which were nice. Would have no hesitation returning.

We went there before going to the theatre. The food was pretty quick. The service was excellent in seeing to our needs. The menu was in large pictures as well as words which was very helpful, although we pretty much knew what we wanted. The presentation was superb. Just the right amount of wasabi and pickled ginger for the dish... More

Tried this Japanese restaurant at Capitol square. We had sashimi, mix tempura and Kaarage ramen with tonkatsu soup. Unfortunately their ramen lacks of flavour and their mix tempura, the batter was not airy as supposed to be. The prawn tempura was fishy and not fresh.

Thank Helen L
