This place is really good - helps that we stay practically next door to it. Have been here several times, on this occasion went for dinner (3 people). Ordered Crispy Mini Prawn Tempura ($10.80), Vegetarian Gyoza ($8.80), Spicy Pork Gyoza ($8.80), Teriyaki Salmon Main ($19.80), Agedashi Eggplant ($8.80), Premium Wagyu Beef Steak Main ($19.80) and a few hot sakes.

This local set in a back street in Pyrmont is nothing short of amazing. Every dish is well thought out and executed. If this was not a small local but set somewhere special and not going under the Japanese expectations then it would def earn a hat or two for the food. The service is spot on as well.

Although unable to make reservations for a group of 10, the restaurant was very accommodating in creating a space around 8:30 pm last week. Good sashimi, sushi great starters. The Edamame starter variations were all wonderful. Super friendly staff that will do all they can to make you feel VIP at their restaurant.

They have employed 2 Japanese waitresses, presumably to keep the Japanese clientele happy, but all the other staff (including the kitchen) are now Korean. So, don't expect to come here and be able to communicate in Japanese any more. Admittedly, most of the food was similar to the previous offering (though they now have added Korean Barbecue). A shame really,... More

Sushi Samurai is first class Japanese cuisine. It is a well kept secret. Only a small premises in a quiet location but a must for Japanese fodd lovers.

As an old 'Japan hand'; I can recommend this restaurant as one of the very few authentic Japanese eateries in Sydney (As you are aware most pseudo-Japanese restaurants are owned and opereted by Koreans). Owned and 100% operated by Japanese means you get traditional food and service with the associated Japanese politeness and efficiency. Modern decor, seating about 20 people.... More

I loved the food here, tasty, well portioned, served in a timely manner that satisfied. All the dishes were good, great actually, its cosy, its family, its worth the back street walk. The price for the quality is exceptional, It is a standard that exceeds its shopfront. Forget the star, this gets a bigger star when it comes down to... More

They have a hot pot deal going at the moment where you get 30% off if you mention the deal before you order. We got the Ramen hot pot and literally besides a good portion of ramen the rest was bean sprouts and tofu and a few small pieces of meat. Very disappointed. Pricey $20 after discount!

For a sushi bar close to the world famous Sydney Fish Market, this restaurant was a total disappointment. The location was good for easily access to our hotel but there is nothing is recommend the food.

The place was good for the price. I enjoyed my California rolls and spinch. It is a small place so don't look for a wow factor just look to fill your tummy.
