Booked this place in for dinner and the evening started well; requested a window seat and got it. The rest of the experience went downhill. Service was nonexistent, no pre-dinner drinks, waitress took the dinner order and brought out the food, that was it. Hard to get their attention to order a drink. As for the food (set sampler menu...

Food was fairly ordinary for the price and service was indifferent to bad. Overall the quality did not reflect the premium being charged. However, our biggest problem was that the restaurant was dirty. The tiled floor felt greasy and slippery. I can only imagine what the kitchen would have been like if they can't be bothered to mop the floor... More

We went on advice of friends who eat regularly. We ate the sunset banquet. There was a lot of food but the food quality and presentation could have been better. Would have preferred a focus on taste and presentation and some freshness rather than quantity. We were expecting a high class Japanese restaurant but left disappointed.

Service and food were total disaster. I didn't expect Japanese food to be that bad in Sydney. The view of the restaurant is great for sunset, but there are so many other restaurants along the same stretch, why bother with this? The service was almost non-existence. There were several servers, but all of them took forever to respond to us.... More

We had the 10 dish tapanyaki package for lunch, the seafood was good, but the beef was tough and chewy. The chef was not very entertaining, he just cooked the dishes and handed it to us, no showmanship! It was quite a boring meal since we had to get through 10 dishes!

We were recommended this venue and the setting and ambience was lovely. It was a Tuesday night and appeared to not have enough staff although the front of house kept polishing glassware instead of serving customers? The food was not bad. Duck rolls and surprisingly a pie were good. As it was a special business celebration we ordered Lobster but... More

I'm not the type of person that writes reviews as I tend not to be too fussy however in light of my recent experience I felt I had to say something. This must be the worse restaurant that I have ever been to. The quality of the food (lucky it was dark so can imagine what it looked like in... More

We had the Christmas day lunch special which was a degustation. The food was good but the service was dismaying. Several tables had the same degustation as our table, however, the serving of the dishes were inconsistent. Sometimes, we were served first, other times last; in regards with our dessert, over 45 minute wait and we had to usher them... More

Had a great experience recently at Kobe Jones. We had the degustation and thoroughly enjoyed it. Each dish was well prepared and delicious. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. One small complaint was the lobster was a little tough but all the other dishes were excellent. We went on a Monday for lunch so were treated... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
