Great to get back to dining "in" after so many weeks of takeaway under lock down. As good as the takeaway was, the food was just that much better served straight from the kitchen. Good to see Zushi back and running.

I was so excited to finally try Zushi, what I didn’t expect was the food to be not fresh, lukewarm and it took forever for it to come out, so overall it was very disappointing and so expensive , won’t be going back

The food is always very good. But it felt a bit light on in terms of portions. Dollarwise, it is on the high end- for example a serve of dragon roll is $20. Atmosphere is great, outdoor section is quite nice.

Zushi has become one of my go to restaurants for any event!! Staff are always nice, food is soo soo good. Even people who aren’t sushi fans will love Zushi. Drinks are delicious too, whether you go for a mock tail or a cocktail. And very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of the food.

Really lovely place to eat, nice take on modern Japanese. We had the 8 course menu for a lunch sitting. Great ambience even though it was an early sitting. Food was delicious but I would say overall a little pricey for what we got. I used a birthday voucher which covered our drinks so that worked out well. Probably would not get the 8 course meal without the $50 voucher.

We sat down at 8. And ordered all our food. They brought everything out within 10 minutes. Felt rushed like they wanted us out. The lady kept coming up to our table to see if plates were emptied. Much prefer the Barangaroo restaurant they bring the food out spaced and can actually enjoy my time at the restaurant

Food was fantastic, the scollop ceviche was a large portion with the truffle oil, if that dish was a touch smaller it would of been perfect. The favours were great would highly recommend! The sushimi grade was tops and the salmon melted in your mouth like butter! Will be back!

We came to Zushi for the second time to celebrate our son's grad that day and introduce my children (the first time for them) to Zushi good food we tried prior (in Feb). However, the celebration was ruined as three dishes out of six dishes came out after 45 min waiting, so instead of five of us eat at the same time, the other two had to eat their dish as it was getting cold. People who came after us received first the same dish we ordered, they even almost finish their food. Unfortunately, the staffs are not good at taking any feedback and very defensive. It's a very disappointing experience!

We pride ourselves on great food and service and so this has come as somewhat of a shock to us as your experience was obviously not up to our usual standards. Could you please send us an email to us, so we can help rectifying the situation. Looking forward to hearing from you. Zushi Team
