I am a regular at this restaurant which always serves up great food, at good prices and with great service. If you're hungry try the all-you-can-eat deal but otherwise a full meal won't set you back much at all. The must try dish is the " dragon" roll.

The $32 all you can eat deal is such good value. The food is fresh and delicious. The place is clean and comfortable. If you are a big sushi eater then this is the way to go.

This place was very busy at lunch time on a Tuesday. The service is quick and the food very good. Teriyaki chicken delicious and hand rolls very good. It's a very noisy place when full and tables are very close together. Food is very fresh. Large menu and everything looks great. You can also get takeaway.

while there is a huge range of places to eat a quick lunch in the Sydney CBD, this hidden basement venue, while very busy, serves freshly-cooked food quickly and efficiently, which is ideal for those with a short lunch break wanting to catch up with friends. It is crowded, but the attentive staff will find you a seat. I keep... More

We walked from the opera house here and were looking for Japanese good. Came across this one (should have researched more) one of us ordered volcano roll and it was bad. The top was a slushy green mound (don't know what it was). Under the mound was the fake crab meat. No salmon. My kid ate one out of 8... More

We stumbled on this place for lunch and are so glad we did! Food was delicious, big servings, great friendly staff and so reasonably priced. My daughter loved her salmon and avocado inside out rolls and staff even boxed up the left overs for us to take away. Wish I worked near by so I could come here weekly.

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.
