Fujisaki Ratings and Reviews
I took my partner for a birthday dinner. My partner is Japanese and very discerning about Japanese restaurants - she was very happy with Fujisaki.
The menu had many great choices, so we went with the banquet - and we weren't let down. It was hard to pick a favourite dish but to narrow it down, the sashimi (amazing wasabi!), king brown mushroom tempura and wagyu beef were all impressive. The burnt pineapple dessert was also very memorable.
The wine list is broad and I went a little off piste with a spicy Pinot Noir from Oregon USA (OPP) - a little shy at first but it totally opened up to leave me begging for more after it was done. Well worth the $$.
Our only criticism was the timing on a couple of the dishes was a little rushed. And the dichon in the Nori Martini - an awesome gin but the dichon didn't do it justice.
Highly recommended for a romantic dinner or special occasion. Oishi!!
We frequently eat Japanese food and were looking forward to experiencing Fujisaki. We 4 had the banquet and were very disappointed in the amount of food. When the 1st salad arrived I thought it was a mistake that it was for 4 not even a lettuce leaf each. The Octopus was mostly cabbage and only 3 pieces! We liked the fish but generally were disappointed.
Sadly a disappointment. Lovely service and a nice wine selection (expensive but thats Sydney), but we felt the kitchen let the show down.
The food was average to say the least. A starter of king brown mushroom tempura was virtually inedible. We where left chewing the stalk of a mushroom and chewing again. No flavour to speak of and not at all elegant.
The flounder was ok - but only ok. Not the best of flat fish in the first place I guess. Baby corn was enjoyed though, as was the lamb rump and Angus beef. Its a 4 out of 10 from us...
first visit and had a late-ish dinner at Fujisaki. Food was good especially the Wagyu beef and mixed sushi. Service was only fair and not helped by the waiter having very strong body odour which was a distraction during ordering and when food was brought to our table. Our booking was for 9pm and we were still eating when the staff were clearing out the restaurant and closing down with moving furniture etc and we were made to feel that we should leave even though we had eaten fairly quickly. So overall not an experience I would want to repeat.
I care as I really enjoyed the great sushi at Yoshii. However the Sushi was mediocre, tempura burnt my mouth and service was cold and what’s up with having a policy of not leaving the soy sauce on the table, or not providing wasabi with the mixed platter ? On the good side the lamb dish was very nice and the baby corn was nice. Wouldn’t bi Her going again for the price there plenty better ou there.
Pros: Food was outstanding and the staff was attentive. Complimentary dessert for our anniversary dinner was a big plus.
Cons: We sat near the glass window and it was extremely sunny at 6pm. It was very uncomfortable to sit in that spot until the sun came down. Some shading solution will be nice. Ambience was good, until a very noisy group came to sit near us.
Normally I don't write reviews but will make the effort for this extraordinary place. I have dined at a lot of top end restaurants around the country and also around the world. I stumbled across this place after filtering Opentable for highest ratings. At first I was sceptical because it only had 5 ratings however I am glad I persisted.
Great ambience and vibe - modern take on Japanese with uber cool feel but not overdone. Very knowledgeable Somelier and waiter (who had a PhD in food history), making it a pleasure to try out his suggestions for wine, Japanese spirits and sake. The food was fresh, well-presented and most importantly, delicious. I don't have the descriptive prowess of food reviewers, but it satisfied my relatively 'refined' palate.
I have already recommended it to locals in Sydney.
We were here on Friday night for a birthday dinner and from the start to finish everything was taken care of amazingly. Our waiter was funny and attentive and the beautiful semi private room we had was perfect for the occassion. And of course the food was delicious! Favourites were the duck, sea urchin roe, and all the desserts. They were all divine :) will come back for sure!
Had a warm welcome and really liked the ambience of this place. Our waitress was friendly, really smiley and attentive throughout. Nice menu of cocktails; recommend the martini! Food was so delicious and the sashimi platter especially stood out - not just for freshness and taste but every piece was beautifully presented with so much delicate detail.
