The sushi here is super fresh, and yummy. The open sushi kitchen ensures you can see the chefs prepare your sushi. They also have a menu in addition to the sushi train which have additional vegetarian options. The staff are friendly and helpful. Tbe restaurant is relatively quiet for a Newtown restaurant which is a bonus.

Just can't get enough of this restaurant and their sushis. Aside from the fact that their price is reasonable it is also fresh and the staffs are very friendly. I think my all time favorite is the seaweed salad. The taste of their sushi and other dishes are always consistent. Texture of the food is always nice and interesting. Their... More

Popped in when passing through on a purposeful visit to Newtown and found the sushi uninspiring. Tried a raw salmon and diced mango sushi but found it surprisingly bland. Tried another forgettable sushi. Wish that I'd tasted the soft crab sushi as other reviews said it is good and it appealed but after the other two sushi decided against it.... More

Had lunch here for the second time in 2 weeks, was not disappointed. Great range of sushi rolls, salads, sashimi and special dishes available by order. Sushi was fresh and good flavoured. This place is well located and popular, as it is great value and its range goes a bit beyond your typical sushi train fare. Highly recommended for a... More

We travel across the city to eat here and have done so for years. The previous Japanese owner has retired and sold the business to another trained Japanese sushi chef. Being somewhat fussy as there is so much rubbish sushi about, my husband and I wondered what might have changed. But we weren't disappointed. The new owner/chef has a light... More

Consistently fantastic nigiri sushi, innovative rolls, crispy nori hand rolls. Fresh seasonal ingredients (be sure to ask for today's catch for a real treat!) assembled with skill and care. Without doubt the BEST sushi in newtown in the TOP 5 for Sydney.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
