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.

Great place for dinner in the city after work. Though undercover and with heaters spaced around everywhere, the space could still be considered outdoors and when we went it was still pretty windy. Despite this, we had a throughly enjoyable dinner sharing a variety of sushi, chicken karaage, balmain tempura and the duck teriyaki and kombu salmon mains. The duck and the ocean roll were my absolute favourites. Service was extremely attentive and they even called 2 minutes after we left to let us know that my friend had left her phone, which was extremely appreciated. Zushi is definitely a good choice for a nicer Japanese dinner!

Glad to hear that your friend received the phone back quickly! And thanks for the lovely feedback on our food. Try Barramundi next time for a main, it is delicious and perfect for this weather as it is served with warm dashi broth. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Arigatou

A party of 2 dined here for $150, after leaving the venue I felt still wanting for more food. Considering the price the portion size was way too unsubstantiated.. the sushi role wasn’t anything but ordinary, sashimi taco was too sweet and the chicken karage was over cooked with burnt coat/ miso infused eggplant is too heavily soaked in sweet sauce.. the staff were very friendly and attentive though..

Loved the lovely waitresses and the great value set $65 menu!

Sashimi - 4/5
Gyoza (replaced prawns) - 5/5
Karaage - 4.5/5
Flathead tempura - 2/5 (not such a fan of tempura nor battered fish in general)
Duck teriyaki - 5/5 (cooked nicely)
Miso cauliflower - 3/5 (quite a different taste than we’re used to, unique though)
Wagyu - 3.5/5 (nice, but not quite our favourite)

I feel that the rice could be served earlier, perhaps with the duck and cauliflower so as to mitigate the leftover rice as the steak portion is limited.

Food was ok, pricey for the quality. Seems you're paying for location rather than quality.
Service was terrible. Had to walk up to someone after waiting for 7-8 minutes at the "wait here" sign. After we were seated, each time we wanted something, we had to flag someone down. At times we had to flag someone several times before we received attention.

We would like to apologise for your negative experience on your last visit. We will try our best to improve our service to be more attentive and prompt. We really appreciate the feedback as without this we would not be able to know or there was delay in service. Hope to see you next time and accommodate your table again.

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.
