    I would recommend Zushi but perhaps not the one in Surry hills. The food was great but the service was a let down - the waiter forgot two things we had ordered and we had to remind them 2-3 times that we were still waiting on it.

    Portions were a little smaller than expected. Timing of each dish that came out from the tasting menu was very inconsistent. Waitstaff could do more than just simply drop off a dish by explaining with a little more detail what the dish was/sauce/preparation method. Just a couple things to improve on but overall a good dinner and we did leave satisfied and full.

    It was a special occasion- I was taking my best friend out to lunch and she’s never been to Surry Hills. It was the perfect choice- we were offered the table of our choice, the service was impeccable and the food was delicious.

    Get the set menus, makes the meal less stressful as they pick all the best bits. Don't forget to add on dessert. This was a place where the dessert was as good as the main meals. We took our 7 & 10yo for lunch. Kids food was excellent quality! We (the adults) will be going back for the Omakase

    Go if you don’t mind waiting 20 minutes for a drink when you arrive on time. Or if you don’t mind your food order being wrong - new chef apparently? Even though the same happened last year ! Food ok when finally came but have better Japanese elsewhere. The chicken karagee mix up did end up being complementary but would not go again.

    I came here for the soft opening special for the Omakase. Having never had Omakase before, it was extremely good value for money for what you paid although I felt as though there could have been a few more sushi courses added at the end. The lobster miso soup should be served at the beginning and with the lobster leg cut open and the flesh scooped out. The ambience was really nice although it got a little noisy at times from the patrons that sat outside.

    too loud for the older folk. it is hard to have a conversation with such background noise. Is there ever going to be a restaurant that plays classical music and softly?

    Zushi - Surry HillsResponded on January 26, 2023Really sorry for noisy dining environment on a busy Sunday night. Please let us know on your next booking so we can try our best to arrange a quieter table or courtyard table where the music and noise can be maintained at a comparatively lower volume. Hope to see you back again!

    Staff not attentive -had to literally wave hands wildly in the air to flag them down to order extra drinks/ get service. Maybe need more staff.

    Zushi - Surry HillsResponded on November 30, 2022We are terribly sorry for the unhappy experience on your last visit. As you may have known there is a major shortage in staff across hospitality and we are doing our best to try and train our new staffs as best we can. I've done some investigating and there was one of our junior wait staffs at your section. We really appreciate for your feedback so we can constantly improve our service. Sorry again and we do hope to see you back again for a pleasant experience!
