We tried it without a booking on a Thursday evening and have been seated immediately. We got a beautiful spot at the chefs/sushi counter. Our friendly waitress took our order and the food came just in time. The wagyu beef tataki wasn't as good as always but anything else was just perfect. Thank you for a beautiful evening. We are...

Fantastic Japanese restaurant with a diverse selection of dishes to choose from. Staff always very attentive and friendly. Warm ambience for a intimate dinner or a group.

I have been here a few times and absolutely love the sushi rolls here, everything is made freshly in front of you - literally if you sit at the sushi bar! I haven't tried anything but the sashimi and sushi so can't comment on the other dishes.

Really poor food and as its the same cost as eating there particularly disappointing - $75 for a very ordinary Chefs selection sushi plate (10 pieces for $36) , 2x prawn tempura rolls and a rainbow roll! No thanks not again!!!!

I used to live in the Potts Point area and walked pass this restaurant all the time. I have to admit I never thought of walking into this restaurant before as looking through the shop front this place doesn't look very bright and inviting. When I finally walked into this restaurant last Saturday, it totally changed my view. We were... More

Umm.... I've been eating Japanese out for quite some time, and their food is good too. Let me just say, Busshari is absolutely bloody amazing. I ordered eel unagi x 3 sets, tempura praw udon and special sashimi plate and bulk sake... For 1hr I sat there shaking my head, they must have thought I was disgusted. NOTHING SHOULD TASTE... More

Not another water refill!! They came around at least 10 times during the meal to refill our waters. It felt like everytime we took a sip! I asked 3 times for them to stop before they actually stopped refilling my glass. Very intrusive - conversation stopped when they were hovering. Food was very nice. Sitting on high stools. Lighting was... More

A quirky small resturant (not posh) chicken and crab koreage = good Sashimi = as expected, sushi (Spicy tuna) = decent good value and worth stopping by, but wld not make a detour....

I stumbled upon this place after finding out that my usual sushi joint was shut on Mondays...walking into the restaurant I knew I had found the real deal w their sushi bar set up and warm decor. I decided to try their Monday lunch special which was the sashimi bowl and my friend had their premium bento box which included... More
