Friendly service & super fresh. That's how I would sum this establishment up. I was seeking a Japanese restaurant for a Friday night with friends and Trip Advisor recommended Machi. First impressions; A Medium Sized restaurant with a team that gives a friendly greeting when you arrive. Upon being seated and presented with the menu and having a flick through,... More

The food is delicious and fresh. Flavours are unique, subtle and not overpowering. Service is courteous and attentive. We were greeted with the smile from the moment we walked in. Nothing is too difficult or inconvenient. I found that in many other restaurants the changes to a dish are looked down if you are lucky and completely rejected if you... More

The food and service at Machu is always of the best standard. I especially love their seafood. It is a great place for couples or small groups to get together. It is not a big restaurant but offers contemporary surroundings and is not noisy encouraging discussion and the enjoyment of the occasion.

The restaurant is small with the open kitchen. It's a little bit dark inside but some could find that romantic, nice sushi menu with a lost of choice but it can come quick expensive after a tour.

Came here on a Tuesday night for dinner. Restaurant was quiet, only about 4 tables booked. Nice decor and ambience. Friendly staff. The food was tasty and delicious. Highly recommend the tacos platter (5 small tacos) topped with different proteins: tuna, salmon, prawn, eel, wagyu. The shells are deep fried nori sheets. Mixed tempura was great, nice batter. Seafood ceviche... More

Nice ambiance, fantastic staff, attention to deal. Karaage chicken and miso eggplant superb. We have the 3 tier machi seafood platter which was outstanding and beautifully presented. The seafood was extremely fresh and delicate. Desert tasting platter was delicious, the matcha creme brûlée out of this world. Great value for quality.
