Nazimi is in a very small space, and some tables are almost touching; you will likely hear your neighbors' conversations whether you want to or not. The big sushi plate my companion ordered had 13 large pieces, really too much for one...while I waited another 30 minutes for my mixed tempura to be delivered. Wine and beer are available but...

Family decided to pop in here for an early dinner, and weren't disappointed. Nothing chi-chi about this place, which was what we needed after a long day of sightseeing. Food was delicious, and portions were good. Dining out with a tired toddler is always dicey, but they made us feel welcomed. We'd definitely come back again.

we tried quite a bit on the menu and by far the best was the sushi/sashimi. however don't go for any of their hot food items, they were all lacking in taste and quite small considering the price... and we tried 4 of them.

A small hidden restaurant in the City.. well worth the wait to get a table. There wasn't many veg options or vegetarian sushi on the menu- but we had requested for sushi to be made and it was authentic and tasty! There was also a crispy tofu and delicious Tempura!! Not many vegetarian options, but if you request certain dishes... More

Stop by Nazimi for some good sushi and Udon noodle whenever you need to take a quick break from shopping to recharge yourself. It's right next to the QVB on York Street, so it's also a good location to sit outside watching people if you are lucky enough to grab one the 2 tables outside.

Bit of a wasted Japanese food experience as I found the food lacked finesse, the sashimi did not sparkle, and found some dishes such as the pork and the solid chunks of eggplant pretty dreadful. Granted - I was not in charge of the ordering and my tastes were not taken into account by the person who did. Also didn't... More

Nazimi is down stairs off the street. It's small and quiet; I didn't feel out of place sitting by myself. The service was attentive, well timed, fast and not imposing. The food was great and the drinks menu impressive.

Dear Stefan, We deeply do apologize for that night. Honestly, we had heaps of bookings on that night. Moreover, some reservations they came late so your reserved table wasn't ready at that time. Also the table reserved at 6:50pm, actually they made booking at 6:30 but they called and let us know they will be late around 20 minutes. We... 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.
