This is seriously an addictive sushi train. I eat here once a week on average and it is so delicious and the sushi is so fresh. The soft-shelled crab sushi is amazing and the spicy seared scallop sushi is so delicate and delicious. Everything is...More

The food is fresh and delicious. Lots of variety on their menu, prices are good and the sushi train is varied and fun. Service is very average, but due to the high volume of patrons, not really a place you need to worry about it...More

I have been here a number of times and it never disappoints. The sushi is always interesting and the salmon sashimi so fresh and full of flavour. With the food continuously coming past I tend to overeat but that's half the fun. Definitely recommended.

This sushi train is spectacular! The wait is never too long to get seated if you have to wait at all. And considering the number of people who go through every day, the restaurant is always clean and well presented. The train itself is always...More

We were there for Sunday lunch. Dish used to be $3.00 each but now $3.50. However, sushi were so tiny. We ordered hand rolls (with tiny pieces of unagi) & other fried dishes to fill ourselves up. There were at least 6 girls wrapping sushi...More

From the outside it looks like your typical sushi bar: A conveyor belt. Lots of dishes available. A queue on the door. We are here 3 times over the course of 2.5 weeks. As there was only 2 of us, we always got a table...More

This place always has lines at lunchtime and since I was eating alone I managed to get a seat along the sushi train around midday. Not many places have sea urchin ( uni) due to the low availability and the necessity to be fresh. It...More

I was staying nearby and thought I would try out this sushi train restaurant on the first floor of the Galeries. Having eaten in Japan I think I come to a place like this with a certain level of expectation. Perhaps that was a mistake....More

This place is run by a bunch of Japanese / Koreans rejected by their courteous, service oriented cultures. Japanese sushi masters would simply commit harakiri if they witness the food preparation standard in this place. We just had dinner there and arrived at 8 pm....More

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
