Yakiniku
Rengaya has been serving YAKINIKU in North Sydney since 1993, making it one of Australia’s pioneering Japanese barbeque restaurants. Now, that tradition is set to continue at its new digs on Miller Street – just a short stroll from the original location – in a much more modern, striking setting. The new fit-out features bar-counter seats around an open kitchen, red booth seating divided by Japanese-style timber panelling and a hard-to-miss chandelier. There’s also a 20-seat private dining room. We use only the finest ingredients such as Japanese Black Cattle made in Australia for beef, Sashimi and Seafood fresh from the sea. Rengaya is the restaurant foodies around the country have chosen.

It was our first time at Rengaya for and we were clueless in terms of what to order. Mana, our waitress for the night was extremely lovely, polite and kind! She was made aware that it was a reunion amongst old friend and wanted to make sure we would have a terrific night, given the current situation with Covid-19. Despite the bill coming up to $1,400 for a table of 5, It was well worth every cent!!
The food was extremely delicious, quality of it is definitely top notch. I'm still frothing over the A5 Wagyu steak! A definitely must try in your lifetime, It was an incredible experience. it was so juicy, tender and plenty of other remarks to give but it won't do any justice until you try it yourself. We also drank premium grade Japanese Sake which made a big portion of the final bill. Nonetheless, we left the restaurant completely stuffed! Amazing night that i will remember for a long time. Thank you to the Rengaya team. Mana! thank you once again for a great night the dessert was a very beautiful gesture.

They are the best Yakiniku in Sydney. It can be a bit pricey but you really do get what you paid for which is great quality wagyu beef 👍🏼👌🏼😋
New location, a really great ambience compared to their previous venue. We have been going to Rengaya for special occasions for many years now and will continue to do soon the years to come. 5 stars!

Staff are super friendly, made us feel very welcome. Helped us make choices from the menu when we weren't sure about couple of things.

Re the food, what can I say? one of the best beef cuts I have ever had in my life.

Atmosphere is great, could be slightly energetic but nothing to concern you.

Will definitely go there again.

I booked a table for 2 and turned up 45mins early. We were greeted by friendly staffs and I explained that I arrived early. I told them I was more than happy to wait but luckily they had a table for me. The restaurant was beautiful and clean. The entree was amazing. Staffs waited till we finished the entree before starting the bbq. The bbq was amazing, it tasted like restaurants in Japan. I would definitely come back.

All 4 of us had the makoto favourite bento with wagyu beef ribs. The beef was cooked to perfection and had a very tasty sauce. The bento was a great package to enjoy with the beef ribs. Service was very attentive to our needs. The restaurant ambience and decor had a very relaxing environment. It was a casual lunch with work friends, but we all felt that it was a special lunch!

Rengaya promises much with obviously high quality cuts and well sourced wagyu beef. I have eaten at many yakiniku restaurants in Japan and Australia and the standard of meat on offer at Rengaya is very good.

The overall experience however is severely hampered by poor and chaotic service, indifferent staff and an ambiance not fitting with the premium prices demanded. It is just quite simply very, very bad - there's no other way to describe it.

Management here clearly needs an overhaul as they seem to be unaware of how to efficiently run a higher priced restaurant.

I've now taken three friends to try the fabulous Wagyu, but I wouldn't take my vegetarian wife. The grill in the centre of the table makes for a unique dining experience. The staff were attentive, helpful and polite. The wine choices are delicious and priced accordingly. Not surprisingly, they have a fantastic range of Sake.

Best Yakiniku lunch. Not cheap but it’s top quality wagyu meat - the tongue m, rib eye fingers... Pairing with genuine Japanese beer on tap. Bravo.

Glad Rengaya has re-opened, It has been a long wait. New Restaurant is modern and fresh and food is really good. Only recommendation would be more leg room under the BBQ tables
