If you like Japanese cuisine - look no further. Wonderful ambience, excellent and attentive wait staff, food beautifully presented and fabulously delicious. Great menu with lots of variety. Superb sake and wine menu also. Thoroughly recommend for any occasion!

I had the opportunity to visit Azuma last week while working in Sydney. The experience was wonderful, the atmosphere in the private dining room was quiet, elegant and calm so very different from the hustle of the Sydney CBD. The service was attentive and efficient with each course simply arriving with a softly spoken explanation of the dish for those... More

Simply amazing experience. Beautiful food, stunningly presented, wonderful staff. I can't say enough. I felt like I was in Japan. We managed to walk in without a booking as we were early, but if you go after 7 then book. This is a simply stunning experience. I would do the set menu if I went back. The people sitting next...

Been coming here for awhile and it's a pretty safe bet. Most dishes are good and nice efficient service. Not a bad wine list. Overall a good choice, caters for most occasions.

This is a high end restaurant that prepares their food exquisitely. The flavors are amazing and the food is fresh. The service was great. My daughter and I had a fantastic time.

Azuma is a well established high end sushi restaurant situated in one of the smartest office blocks in Sydney's CBD.furnished in traditional ethnic style,the appointments reflect the minimalist design so popular with Japanese architects. on arrival we were given a choice of tables,and chose to sit along the back wall,away from the air conditioning vents,which can be drafty.the service is...

Had dinner here on a Sunday night. It was quite busy. You have to order a minimum of $45 per person! Highly recommend the following: eggplant miso, cod with miso, wagyu tataki (not as raw as it should be), pork kakuni. The sashimi was very fresh. Spider roll was delicious if you like soft shell crab. They have limited high... More

Lovely elite venue. Boyz club feel. Full of lawyers and bankers. Sushi and sashimi box was huge at $42. Bit disappointed at not being offered green tea even when I asked for it. Great venue for fancy Japanese.

Our dinner for two at Azuma was disappointing. We were expecting something special, but the experience was pretty pedestrian. Perhaps instead of a simple dinner we should have ordered the omakase or some fancy sake so they could show us what they could do. The service was definitely cursory. Our food was good, but without the typical Japanese attention to... More

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.
