It's hard to get in, with queues throughout the lunch period, then it shut at 2:30 and I decided to go shortly after it reopened at 5:30. The train perhaps doesn't have enough variety but it does have interesting things like abalone and lobster along with good quality salmon and tuna. The gyoza doesn't stay fresh for long and isn't...

Really good sushi, service is very polite and friendly, food is very fresh and delicious and that means good value. It's obviously a good restaurant as whenever we go there the place is always packed. Hard to find a better sushi restaurant.

Been visiting Makoto regularly for the past 8 yrs and always been amazed how freshly the fish is, nicely done Ngiri, nice slice and combination of sashimi and how authentic it is (consider how many Korean sushi in the CBD) ,even it is a "kaiten" (fast food), conveyor belt sushi with good value of money. Through out the last few... More

Probably one of the best sushi places outside of Japan . Original dishes with original service. Saw boxes of Huon salmon go into the kitchen, none of this Tassal stuff. Green tea was the real thing, not a teabag in sight.

Quite a few salmon plates but the choice was otherwise limited. The tempura prawns were cold and fatty like they had been deep fried too long. The service was fast and friendly. They made a mistake with a drink order and fixed it quickly without any fuss. The restaurant itself has boxes and stuff everywhere and needs a good clean.

Searching for Sushi I ended up this sushi bar. Very nice place and the staff is greeting everyone entering the bar with a special sentence. Sushi was very good and very reasonable priced (especially for Sydney CBD). Only missed the option to order a nice Japanse beer

Last time I reviewed this Sushi Bar was about 4 years ago and I gave it the 5 stars. However I feel an updated review is overdue since quite a few things have changed (not for the better). In my opinion this is still the best quality sushi in Sydney CBD however the edge over the other sushi bars they... More

This is really an excellent place and I am torn between giving four or five stars. It's near Hyde Park. It is really a sushi train place of the kind that you find all around the city but you can order from a menu and there are some tables on the side where you can sit away from the belt.... More

The food was excellent, the sushi juicy and fresh. The variety was big, one can order extras from a menu except from the the plates that pass in front of you. But the service was incompetent, uninterested completely. We had to ask repeatedly to receive a small plate for the soy sauce or to order a drink. It's a pity.

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.
