Came for lunch on a weekend with the family. They only have a set menu with a few a la carte. Kids menu only plain Udon and cucumber/avocado maki. Food wise is average, small portion and more expensive than most places

This place is very busy even during weekday work lunches. We watched them turn away three well dressed business people, when it was our turn they asked us if we wanted to share a table. Urgh! I instantly visualised loud conversation and bumping elbows. To...More

This is one of the hidden gems we found in Sydney. The restaurant offered authentic Japanese cuisine with a modern take. We especially loved the sushi platter with the sushi in round (rather than the standard rectangular) shapes. Delicious!

Traditional Japanese bento box style eating plus other traditional favourites. Cooked frsh to order form the iPad ordering system. Great selection of plum wines and other regular wines. Prices are very reasonable and meals are a good size. Central location - good food.

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
