At Zushi we love our customers and our customers love our relaxed approach, coupled with delicious food, friendly service and dining options in our al fresco waterfront setting. We offer dine in, takeaway, catering, dinner delivery.

Chef Lee brings his 27 years experience to our kitchen and creates a mix of sushi and innovative Izakaya inspired dishes using carefully sourced local ingredients. Sharing is caring in the tradition of Asian dining, so we encourage a tapas style dining experience whether you are a group of two or twenty.

Zushi is fully licensed and offers an exciting list of cocktails for those who have worked up a thirst. We also love sharing our passion for sake, beer and wines to match your meal.

So strap on your sushi helmets, sharpen your chopsticks and bring your appetite to Zushi!

Private Dining

Zushi Barangaroo is one of the last waterfront restaurant spaces in Sydney with a view of the sunset so the opportunity to serve our food and bar menu alfresco with the magic of the sun setting on the harbour as our backdrop is perfection.

Best miso eggplant! and they are always really accommodating to make a drink that's not on the menu. Really friendly staff and great food in a wonderful location.

Food was terrible and service was not great. Not sure how this place has such good reviews generally. Probably the worst sushi place I have ever been too. The fish came out frozen and rubbery.

Had a lovely lunch overall. Not sure with a few dishes as they were a bit oily. Busy and service was a bit slow. Had to ask a few times for cutlery or get staff's attention. Value for money considering location. Will definitely return.

Hi there, we were a party of 4 with 2 kids and everyone had a wonderful evening. Food was extraordinary good and amazing. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. Could we recommend anything for improvement? Benches are great but with kids the lack of a back support could be improved. Overall fantastic evening and highly recommend.

The venue has a cool vibe to it. Food is incredible in taste but maybe a bit pricey for what you get (I guess you’re paying more for the location). Would still recommend for great modern Japanese

Thank you, Zushi, for sending me a birthday voucher to use. This is the second time my husband and I have visited and within a week!
We went there for lunch to mix things up a bit as the week prior we attended Valentine's Day dinner.

We ordered the Bento boxes as this was a special feature of the lunch menu. I got the Wagyu Beef Bento and my husband ordered the Pork Ribs Bento.
The Wagyu Beef Bento was delicious although I found the beef to be a little dry. The Pork Ribs were a nice idea however it meant eating with your hands which made it a little messy and also inconvenient for my husband.

All in all, he would order the Wagyu Beef Bento next time and not order the Pork Ribs Bento again.

The ambience was lovely although a little hard to have a conversation sometimes due to noise. The staff there were attentive.

Service and Food were fantastic. Particularly the Bao Buns. Our only criticism would be that the dishes came all at once, we would have preferred some time between. It would give us the chance to appreciate each dish more.
Overall very happy with our experience and looking forward to returning.

It's my second time in 2 weeks and service was amazing. Food was perfect. I took 4 other friends that haven't been to Zushi before and they left stating it was their new favourite restaurant....that said, we were all disappointed there was no STICKY DATE PUDDING on the menu! Bring back the SDP. It should be a permanent offering on the menu!

Super attentive and friendly service. Catered well for children. Some amazing flavours in the smaller dishes. The Barramundi was not amazing and quite small for the price. The Bun Bow was incredible.

we have been there on previous occasions. unfortunately when large groups are also dining the noise level is uncomfortable particularly if the group(s) is noisy. makes it difficult to have conversation at your own table at a moderate speaking level. food and service remains of high quality

A wonderful lively restaurant right at the waterfront at Barangaroo. The food is always fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff are attentive, friendly and make you feel welcome. I have a gluten intolerance and the menu caters perfectly and the team are all aware of what dishes are suitable without having to check with the chefs.

The only thing to be aware of is that the tables at Zusghi are positioned really closely together so I would recommend Zushi for anything other than an intimate date.

The food was very good but service was simply horrible. From the moment we checked in (we had a reservation) to the 30 min wait to get our glasses of wine and appetizer, to the main course showing up at the same time as the wine and appetizer.
We had told the waitress to hold on to order our main course until our appetizer was done. She never did and when we told the Manager he did not try to fix the situation.

Horrible sushi, using the wrong kind of rice, everything was falling apart. Very average Japanese food and they're prices don't align with their quality (or lack of) food. You are expecting much better food and service when on such prime real estate of Sydney. Service was also terrible it was over 33 degrees yesterday afternoon, their venue is NOT air conditioned and the waiters didn't offer any ice water, we had to ask...and then wait a further 10 minutes just for water after being seated. (and NO, it wasn't busy there was only 3 tables being services Monday night at 6:00PM). The Surry Hills venue is nice, however the Barangaroo restaurant is complete rubbish!!
