Have been coming here for years as I live in Bondi and food is alway good but the service is getting worse but the years. After years and years of the same friends coming here almost weekly the manager and waiters there always pretend they...don’t remember us! They also used to have more specials on the menu but these days it’s always the same old menu.More

Food is usually reliable. Recently my takeaway orders have been well below par. Wagyu beef overcooked and chewy. Rolls with too much mayo and runny. And ordered $160 worth and was given 3 sets of chopsticks and 5 tiny soy sauce packets. I rang the...lady and asked why so tight on the accessories, she said "sorry but there's not much we can do". I asked her why only 3 sets of chopsticks and she said "how are we supposed to know how many people its for". Well is $160 of takeaway your standard cost for 3 people now is it?! and 5 soy sauces. I personally require 4 for myself.. Such a shame because I spend about $400 a week with you guys between dine in and takeaway but this is now going to find its way to other places.More

The customer service of the main guy was terrible he was racist and arrogant which ruined the whole experience however the waitresses were very sweet. Food was decently priced and taste was fine.

The food at Raw Bar is some of the best sushi I've had, but the service has made it very difficult to keep going there. The wait for even takeaway is ridiculous - even when I order two hours in advance. Great if you want...to dine in (and you are happy to wait for a table) but the service needs a severe refresh.More

Nicely local place for sushi. It gets busy quickly so plan ahead! Fresh fish and interesting rolls make this one of my favorites in Bondi

Really enjoy the sushi here. Take away is a better option than eating in. However, I have only received very professional service here. Great location. Would recommend.

We’ve attended Raw Bar for years and more recently in Covid times regularly ordered take away. Often we have received missing items in our order and regularly waited over an hour for our food due to delays but have let it slide. However last night...we were left waiting 2.5 hours for our order - I had 2 screaming kids who I ended up having to cook pasta for. They shifted the blame onto Deliveroo for delivering to the wrong address but this still would have been sent way after the proposed 30-40 min time slot. The team I spoke with at the restaurant were aloof, barely apologetic & offered no recompense. We must have spent into the thousands with this restaurant alone this year and to be frank am disgusted at the service and the complete lack of remorse. They’ve lost our business and I certainly will not be recommending to anyone.More

They always remember you and it makes you wanna go back - I'm either alone enjoying a glass of wine, inside out roll and reading my book or with a loud group of friends - but they manage to either leave you be or engage...The menu has all your japanese favourites but also have some interesting dishes on the specials Biggest bonus is the afternoon sun and a sapporoMore

The food is amazing, but I did experience such a poor service. I strongly suggest that you don’t try and give a call to reserve a table as they’ll quickly hang up the phone telling you that they don’t take reservations. Me and my friends...turned up at 8.45pm on a Friday night and asked for a table knowing that the kitchen could have been closed but we were lucky enough that we got a table. What I thought could have been a wonderful night out quickly turned out to be one of the worst experience I have ever had. Who appeared to be the manager came out putting us in a hurry saying that the kitchen would close 10 mins later (we were still waiting for one person and they knew). We rush to order and the lady who took our order very annoyed told us that we didn’t order enough and that the kitchen was closing so we couldn’t really top it up later. The food comes, delicious as it has always been, I didn’t even finish to chew the last piece of roll left on the table that the waitress rush to the table bringing the bill. The moment the bill came to the table I was still chewing and none of us had finish the wine in our glass. I have been in restaurants and understand the frustration when you get to the end of the night. I tend to understand a lot more than a normal customer. I wouldn’t have mind placing my order as soon as I sat and pay as soon as I finished if simply someone with a bit more manners would have advise while giving me a table that the kitchen would have closed 10 mins later and the restaurant would have shut at 9.30pm. What I don’t accept is being given a table and then being put in a rush to finish.More

Raw bar delivery is extremely bad value. We ordered from Deliveroo and received a $27 portion of salmon that was 4 tiny pieces on a leaf of lettuce. The raw bar salad’ was essentially just lettuce leaves and grated carrot for $20. Very poor.
