The food here was quite simply outstanding. Every dish we ordered was so fresh and tasty. Can’t wait to return! And the sake is good too!

Highly recommended venue for any occasion, we celebrated my daughter's birthday as she loves Japanese! From start to departure we were warmly looked after, very impressed with the wait staff's sake recommendations - all were phenomenal. Every dish was beautifully flavoured and presented so hard...to choose a favourite. Food was served promptly. Very impressed with quality and freshness of produce - ribs were so tender & juicy, tuna belly fried perfectly, tofu divine and so it went. A delightful evening had by all! Very professional of staff to follow up the next day to check whether we had forgotten a shawl, not many places would bother. One minor detail which didn't affect us - there seemed to be 1 item for dessert - brownie with caramel sauce. We were happy to walk to Messina for ice cream. A must return & already told some of my friends about the place. A big thank you to all at Izakaya Fujiyama!More

The service is excellent. The food is fresh and flavoursome. The sashimi platter was fresh with a great variety of fish and beautiful subtle flavours. The beef cheek buns were to die for while the eggplant with sweet miso and walnut sauce is a taste...sensation. The restaurant has a nice relaxed modern atmosphere. We will definitely go again.More

Best meal we have had there. On their game following return from lockdown. Dinner included truffle edamame, eggplant miso, Wagyu cheek buns, sashimi, grilled tuna belly on the hot rock. All good but some standout delicious moments with the walnuts in the eggplant miso, the...Wagyu cheek buns, & the smokiness of the seared tuna belly was one of the best tasting fish dishes I've ever had.More

Nice local eatery, reasonable service and okay food. Probably need to give it another go before I knock it off my list....but there’s so much competition in Japanese eateries in Surry Hills. Would I rave about it? No.

We have been here several times now, and have found it to be an amazing experience every time! The sashimi is super fresh and Hiro is nothing short of an artist and Kazu sends amazing dishes out from the kitchen. Koji is so knowledgeable about...the drinks menu, particularly the sake. And the best thing overall is that a majority of the menu is safe for celiacs, even the fried chicken! I highly recommend this restaurant.More

Very good Japanese was enjoyed at our visit on 21 November. The Karaage Tuna and superb Sapporo beer were highlights.

I don’t often write reviews however this place is an absolute must! The place felt amazing when you went in, staff were friendly and the food was great as good as SYDNEY has to offer. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for authentic Japanese.
