Very fresh seafood. Flavours complimented nicely. Very attentive staff. Food was perfectly cooked, not over cooked or dry. Staff were accommodating in regards to dietary needs. The octopus karaage was the bomb! Food was all beautifully presented and the soft lighting and waterfront setting was beautiful and perfect for pretty Instagram shots.

Zushi Barangaroo were very generous to gift me with a birthday voucher to utilise for my birthday.

I felt the best way to go about this was to order the $65 tasting menu for 2 x people. Every course was delicious and the food were all beautifully presented and seasoned well. Our only complaint was that the Wagyu Beef had many sinewy chewy parts so some slices were inedible.
The Honey Prawns and Teriyaki Duck were some of the standouts of the night for us.

We ordered a cocktail each and shared the Chocolate Mousse for dessert as we were really full!

It was such a wonderful experience! The lovely touch of the staff putting a sparkler on the mousse when they brought it out was a beautiful gesture and made for great photos!

Thank you, Zushi, for making my birthday special. We will be back again!

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!

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.
