Found this place using a search, it was just down the road from my hotel. Having read the reviews I really fancied a bento box!! I was not disappointed! The food was very tasty and we'll presented and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Learning from previous experience about the less than perfect sashimi, I ordered the bento box this time and found everything to be excellent. The staff is friendly and patient with the unnecessarily intricate customised sushi order of another customer I overheard.

The sashimi/fish here are not fresh at all, but other hot dishes are amazing. I usually do not enjoy tempura at all, but those included in the bento box converted me. Just make sure not to order sashimi and you'd be a happy diner.

Yes, I know it is a Japanese restaurant however all of the staff including the chef were Korean - Not that there is anything wrong with that! Good meal - around $20 for each main course. Not as many vegetables as expected but still okay. Tough competition in Newport as plenty of good restaurants.

While we enjoyed our meal here, I found the portions a little small. The Sashimi plate displayed slightly different cutting than usual but good quality product. It would be good if they added photos to the menu as the ones displayed in the window are not in the menu so we found ordering a little difficult. This is easier for... More

This was close to my hotel. Good food for reasonable prices. It is BYO as well. The food was tasty enough but at times it was simply a bit disorganised and service bit slow. i was not in a hurry and the food was actually quite good.

I've walked past this diner countless of times, but never went in. Finally, a couple of weeks ago I went in with a friend. The place is relatively small, so it won't be suited for a large gathering. The server is polite and helpful. I tried the takoyaki and okonomiyaki, and they are both good. I might be back to... More

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.
