We felt like a Japanese fix so decided on Nakashima as we walked past it. Nice little place with some heaters outside. Decided on some dumplings & sashimi - the dumplings were nice but the sashimi was definitely not up to scratch. The pieces of...More

Honestly some of the best Japanese I've had in Sydney in a long time. Highly reccomend! The terriaki chicken has the most amazing crispy skin on it and delicious sauce. Will definitely come again.

It is a hidden gem tucked away from the main street, but for those in the know, worth locating. Food is served quickly and good value for price. Quite a small place but very popular so always busy.

This is what you aim for on a city trip - a hidden gem that won't cost too much but will deliver a great meal. We had a selection of entrees and the sashimi. They were all delicious, particularly the salmon. The service was great...More

I ordered a sushi and sashimi combination. Very nice variety of fishes, great to share if you are not a complete sushi fanatic like me. Good value for money and service despite of a very humble decoration. Hi

Our family of 4 ate dinner here in the outside but enclosed dining area. The food was average and the menu was limited. We ordered the sushi and sashimi but were unsure what specifically we received as the waitress spoke limited English and did not...More

Very low key restaurant, which has nothing to do with authentic Japanese cuisine. We ordered Teriyaki squid, tempura, sukiyaki and edomame. Sukuyaki and squid were absolutely the same taste: mix of soy souse with a lot of sugar and starch. Tempura was unprofessionally cut of...More

Great food, good price! Chicken cutlet here is better than that in Tokyo. Great Japanese staff too.
