Orderer 2 Entrees to share, first came then the next, but before the second entree could be eaten the main dishes were served, The Duck dish was bone cold and undercooked, the fish dish was also cold and undercooked.. Appeared as had been cooked and sat on the pass for some time. Was provided with a replacement for the Duck but this was very well cooked on the outside but completely raw in the middle...appeared to me to be frozen and not properly thawed before cooking. Was my second visit and was a complete reversal to the excellent meal and service first experienced.

It was a quiet day, which was great for us. But it was really difficult to get the attention of the staff. They were not attentive and did not return to ask if we needed anything. It was a challenge. Food was amazing .

Very small serves for the big $$ price. There was only 6 small pieces of balmain bug (mostly batter), the tooth fish portion was tiny for $49. We had to pour our own wine as the staff weren't around to do it.

Special bento box of the day was delicious - steamed fish and the fried kingfish collar was exceptional. The tiger roll was not good as rice very gluggy and mushy - not crisp as on other occasions.

Wait staff attentive and professional.

Will be back

Zushi has amazing food, the sushi itself is sensational. 10/10 for food. Also the cocktails are so good, try the hello kitty!! And the super Mario mocktail is also good. Service is really good, but sometimes waiters and waitresses are hard to understand. But overall experience is always good. 10/10 recommend

Been chefing for 10yrs and into so many Japanese restaurants. This isnt the best not gonna lie. Ambient is excellent bur a lil too busy and noisy. Food isnt unlike others but the value is not there at all. Prett average sushi and sashimi range with hyped prices. Sushi deluxe on Zuma plate (fairly cheap) isnt so ideal, would expect somewhat glass plate with some dry ice effcet. Wagyu roll was very nice and staffs are informative but would never return there.

We dined at Zushi on Saturday night. The food was sensational, some of the best Japanese cuisine I have eater. The service was great also.

The only thing that let the experience down was the lack of warmth. Whilst it was an extremely unusual cold evening, it literally felt like we were in a wind tunnel. Given that the venue us all outdoors, my suggestion would be to providing portable heaters throughout and additional blankets. Also greater protection from the outside elements, with screens etc could help.

Other than that, we had a wonderful experience, thank you.

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.

Zushi Barangaroo
Responded on 20 March 2019

Hi, Josh You had sashimi tacos and rainbow roll on the day. The tacos is served with yuzu granita on top of the sashimi which probably makes it feels frozen. We only use fresh fish in the restaurant, none is frozen. Also, it is probably some part of the fish has more rubbery texture, we'll pass this feedback to the chef. Your feedback matters to us for our future improvement. We would also like to apologize for your negative experience. Hope you have a great day.

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.

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.
