The $55 banquet menu is not well constructed. We were still hungry after 5 dishes. The portions are too small. Maybe one of the sashimi dish should be swapped with a sushi dish. The sashimi did not taste fresh. Service was nice. I would not come back for the banquet menu. The a la carte menu offers better value for money. Also, charging Extra on credit card payment for a $700 bill is too much. It does not cost the restaurant $12 for one transaction. I would not book a large group here again.

Zushi - Surry Hills
Responded on July 15, 2020

Hi DavidN, Thanks for your feedback. It is very disappointing to hear we did not meet your expectations. I have forwarded your feedback to our management team and we will work on this matter to ensure the menus are correct. Please be advised, credit card surcharge applies 0.8%-1.7% for Visa/Mastercard, 1.7% for Amex/Diners/Union/JCB hence why there was a merchant fee applied to your bill. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Regards, Zushi Team
