I was on holidays in Sydney and was craving sushi. In general, I found Sydney food to be quite expensive and sushi isn't cheap anywhere in the world. However I was lucky to go to Busshari at lunch time when you get a better deal :) We had a chicken teriyaki rice bowl, a mixed sashimi, a spicy tuna roll... More

We had visitors from US and took them to this amazing Japanese. We've been to Busshari before and is always our favourite. Our friends loved the food and service.

Gorgeous little Japanese restaurant that serves really good food at a reasonable price. The service was friendly and great. I eat gluten free and the staff were knowledgeable and accommodating. We had sashimi, tataki, edamame and omelette rolls and everything was fresh and tasty. Recommend.

Went in for Ramen on on a Thursday night and was lucky to find a seat at the counter as all the tables were reserved. I had rice w/sashimi and Horenso (boiled Japanese Spinach) and wifey had sushi of some sort. Being of Japanese descent I found to be lacking in "umami" or taste: The rice was flat whereas good...

It was recommended to me by a Japanese friend as one of the best if not the best restaurant in Sydney. I haven't tried any better since I've first been to Busshari. I will head there soon again for my 4th time and I am really looking forward to it. The service is excellent, the staff very friendly and the... More

This was our first sushi/sashimi experience - a couple of our friends ordered a variety of dishes for the table to share and we loved every one. Particular shout outs to the tuna sashimi, the tempura prawns and the chicken teriyaki. One member of the group can't eat cucumber, and this was left out of each sushi roll as requested.... More

We love Busshari because we think it is still one of the best Japanese food in Sydney without the price tag but think the standard has changed a little. (Just a little compared to say back in 2014?) Still the best place to have fresh sashimi, spider roll and miso grilled eggplant! Parking can be a nightmare in Potts Point... More

I have been here a few years ago and I left feeling that while it was worth the money, I was unimpressed with the food for such a well reviewed restaurant. I decided to return last night as most Japanese places are closed for the early part of January. Glad I returned, however this time we stuck to more fresh... More

We came here to celebrate my partner's 60th birthday while we're on vacation here in Australia. The servers are very friendly. We ordered four of their sushi rolls, and they brought them out one at a time. This was a good way for us to take our time to digest these great rolls. We ordered the Dynamite roll which was...
