Great food but price was $$$ compared to your Surry Hills restaurant.

Zushi Barangaroo
Responded on March 15, 2020

Thanks for your review. Due to its location, Zushi Barangaroo's menu prices are a little higher than Zushi Surry Hills. The Barangaroo venue also serve some premium dishes such as oven roasted Toothfish so you might have felt the average pricing is higher compared to Surry Hills. The both restaurants have great Japanese menu and hope you enjoyed your meal! Team Zushi

Thank you for telling us about your recent experience at Zushi Barangaroo. Yes, we do serve delicious Japanese vegetarian/vegan menu items upon request like Vegan sushi. Customer's request is important to us and we try our best at all times to suit their dietary requirements. Did you try our vegan dessert?

Very fresh seafood. Flavours complimented nicely. Very attentive staff. Food was perfectly cooked, not over cooked or dry. Staff were accommodating in regards to dietary needs. The octopus karaage was the bomb! Food was all beautifully presented and the soft lighting and waterfront setting was beautiful and perfect for pretty Instagram shots.

Zushi Barangaroo were very generous to gift me with a birthday voucher to utilise for my birthday.

I felt the best way to go about this was to order the $65 tasting menu for 2 x people. Every course was delicious and the food were all beautifully presented and seasoned well. Our only complaint was that the Wagyu Beef had many sinewy chewy parts so some slices were inedible.
The Honey Prawns and Teriyaki Duck were some of the standouts of the night for us.

We ordered a cocktail each and shared the Chocolate Mousse for dessert as we were really full!

It was such a wonderful experience! The lovely touch of the staff putting a sparkler on the mousse when they brought it out was a beautiful gesture and made for great photos!

Thank you, Zushi, for making my birthday special. We will be back again!

Thanks for the feedback. We always give customers a choice of table especially when we don't have much bookings. If we are fully booked out and only certain tables are left, we explain walk-in customers that we only have few tables available for them. We will try to look at the day of your visit and check if any staff did not follow the above procedure. Apologise if this was not handled professionally. Hope to see you again. Zushi Team
