At the edge of the CBD, in the spectacular 22-hectare waterfront precinct where an old container terminal once stood, discerning foodies can now find some of the city’s best sushi in Barangaroo. Established in 2016, the newest addition to the Zushi restaurant empire is in Sydney’s impressive new harbour foreshore playground.

Zushi Barangaroo is both stylish and comfortable, capturing the relaxed style of a typical Japanese bar or izakaya designed by the renowned architect Koichi Takada. We offer premium service complimented with a wide selection of imported beers, Japanese inspired cocktails, and Japanese sake and whisky.

Zushi prides itself on using only carefully sourced local ingredients; the freshest vegetables and sustainable seafood where possible and most of the menu is gluten-free.

We are open every day for lunch and dinner, serving delectable sushi, sashimi and share plates. And the glorious harbour views are pretty tasty too.

Wife's 40th Birthday - the restaurant confirmed twice my booking online which was comforting - the food and service were second to none - my wife had a great lunch for her birthday and we have already started planing our next return to this venue. One of the best Japanese experiences food wise in Sydney.

Food was incredible, I did not dislike anything I ordered. The customer service was great, and the dimmed atmosphere with small table lights was very beautiful and romantic. 100% recommend Zushi to anyone who has never been before. The high price is definitely worth it.

Responded on 9 June 2021

We are so sorry to hear you fell ill. We've looked up your invoice and checked all the dishes served. Our fish is delivered fresh daily and made to order so it sounds like it could have been potentially a bad oyster. We have contacted the supplier to report the issue. We take food safety very seriously so will ensure we get to the bottom of this. We'd love to offer you a voucher so please email us and mention this review.

Food was delicious as usual. I requested that the fried dishes on the set menu be fried in different oil to prevent cross contamination due to allergies - they had offered this before on 2 occasions. However, this time they substituted one of the set menu items - the chicken karaage with cauliflower karaage. The waitress offered little explanation except that it was related to the new oil. Although I was confused and a little disappointed I didn't get to have the karaage I was looking forward to, the cauliflower was still tasty.

Zushi Barangaroo
Responded on 9 June 2021

Hello Anita. We are really sorry that we didn't give you enough explanation related to the cauliflower karaage for the new oil dish instead of chicken karaage. It was indeed a confusion for you. As an apology, we would like to offer you a complimentary chicken karaage (in new oil) for your next visit. I would email you the voucher soon. We hope to see you again.

Waited 50 minutes for food to arrive, table next to us came later and got their food first. Also their food had a really off putting smell.

Sashimi did not taste fresh, Wagyu beef was really nice.

Hi Sushi, It's really disappointing to hear that you waited 50 minutes for your food. We would love to check with the staff who worked during your meal as well as the CCTV cameras to check why this happened as our food usually comes out in a timely manner so this has come as somewhat a shock to us to hear. As for the food we would love to hear more information on what you ordered so we can investigate further. Are you able to email us more info? Hope to hear from you soon.
