The food is outstanding, we opted for the $65pp tasting menu but added a few extra entrees. Recommend the mango beer as well.

Lovely food. Great service by some staff, however others brought food out and didn’t know what it was or if we had ordered it. Some staff not very friendly.

We enjoyed our delicious dinner on Saturday night. Zushi' s menu is extensive and very interesting. We chose the tasting plates and ordered extras as well. Everything was beautifully presented, fresh and extremely delicious. A great evening.

The portion is not too big nor too small. Sashimi was nice and fresh, however the wagyu could have been better. Overall, a nice place with good food and great service.

Thanks for the feedback. Wondering what wagyu dish you had exactly so we can look into it. We love feedbacks and customers can let us know on the spot about any concern about a dish/drink so we can have a look at/fix it instantly if needed. Look forward to seeing you again. Zushi Team

Boxing Day lunch - lovely seats at the front of the restaurant looking out to the water! Great food and drinks! Sashimi was amazing! So fresh and tasty! Would definitely go back!

Zushi Barangaroo
Responded on 7 January 2020

Thanks for the feedback. Yes the tables at front are always the most popular ones among bookings :) great to hear that you liked all our food and drinks. Try our Sashimi Tacos if you haven't, it's diced-cut salmon tuna sashimi, avo, tamari soy with a side of wonton crackers so you mix it all up and top on the crackers. It's amazing! Hope to see you soon Zushi Team

We were sat in seats directly in the sun in an otherwise empty restaurant. We were sat in seats directly next to people in an otherwise empty restaurant. We had to ask to be sat at a table near a fan on a 36° day. Too reliant on location.

Zushi Barangaroo
Responded on 7 January 2020

Thanks for the feedback. We always give customers a choice of table especially when we don't have much bookings. If we are fully booked out and only certain tables are left, we explain walk-in customers that we only have few tables available for them. We will try to look at the day of your visit and check if any staff did not follow the above procedure. Apologise if this was not handled professionally. Hope to see you again. Zushi Team

What a wonderful night we had at Zushi Barangaroo! We came for dinner, after a show at the Lyric theatre, to celebrate 3 big family birthdays, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and plentiful, and the service was wonderful. I will be going back, and telling all my friends to come along too!

It was the smokiest day in Sydney EVER. I did not know it was an outdoor area restaurant as we have not visited that precinct before. In good weather it would be wonderful. Service was good, food fabulous and prices as expected for location. Would return when day is perfect.

Wasn't busy as we arrived 6pm - staff not very experienced for a restaurant that very expensive.
I don't mind paying if the service is good - nothing wrong with food.
Staff didn't know how to correctly uncork a bottle of wine.
Premium restaurant ion that location needs to better - especially if serving overseas visitors with high expectations.

Hi Nick Sorry for your bad experience. We have quite a few new staff that were hired for busy service days ahead, and it must have been one of them who served you on the day. Thanks for letting us know as if a customer did not let us know any issue happened, we would not have a chance to be aware of and fix the problems. Apologies for the inconvenience on the day, and hope to see you again. Thanks.

Been here several times but 1st time in a larger party. Food excellent on the $65 tasting menu, only slight complaint was the food came out too quickly & not time to appreciate each course. Adequate amount of food. Drink were much slower to come out but overall a great experience.

This is one of our family’s absolute favourite restaurants.

Great food and decent wine list too.

Kids are always served quickly and get child friendly food and portions but inevitably tuck into the other dishes as they come out.

Went there for lunch with a group of friends. Able to tried a few dishes. It was delicious. But personally I like it thinner slices of their duck dish. And snapper fish tempura wasn’t my fave. But overall we were enjoying our quality time at Zushi. The lady manager very polite and handled some miss communication very well. Keep up a good work. Thanks Zushi. Will come back again for sure

My review is very mixed, as the service was good, atmosphere was good, kids enjoyed their meals but would I recommend it to a friend ? Possibly yes to try but I’d be a bit hesitant. It’s my 3rd time eating here and I found the quality of food wasn’t as good as it use to be. The sashimi was fresh however the Wagyu tataki was very fatty and chewy. The bao was extremely dry with no flavour. The pulled pork itself was dry. It’s like it has been sitting out for hours. This is the one dish I absolutely craved for after my last visits and was raving about it but it was disappointing when it came out. I think the sashimi in the tacos needs to be diced a lot smaller like it use to be so it’s easier to scoop up. All in all it was good but The dishes lacked that extra punch of flavour and unfortunately I would Be a bit hesitant to come and eat there again. I usually don’t like to write reviews but I hope some of these things can be taken as a positive criticism. Would love to try it again one day.
