The $55 banquet menu is not well constructed. We were still hungry after 5 dishes. The portions are too small. Maybe one of the sashimi dish should be swapped with a sushi dish. The sashimi did not taste fresh. Service was nice. I would not come back for the banquet menu. The a la carte menu offers better value for money. Also, charging Extra on credit card payment for a $700 bill is too much. It does not cost the restaurant $12 for one transaction. I would not book a large group here again.

Zushi - Surry Hills
Responded on 15 July 2020

Hi DavidN, Thanks for your feedback. It is very disappointing to hear we did not meet your expectations. I have forwarded your feedback to our management team and we will work on this matter to ensure the menus are correct. Please be advised, credit card surcharge applies 0.8%-1.7% for Visa/Mastercard, 1.7% for Amex/Diners/Union/JCB hence why there was a merchant fee applied to your bill. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Regards, Zushi Team

The people working there were extremely rude and impatient.

Won’t be attending this restaurant again.

Responded on 7 July 2020

Hi ElaineN, Thanks for your feedback. It saddens me that our service was not up to our usual standard on you last visit. Our latest booking time was 8pm and kitchen close at 9pm on Sunday. Our staffs had to ask you to order before our kitchen close since you were running late. We wish to know if there's any other details behind our poor service. Please send us email so we can investigate further. Looking forwards to hearing from you. Regards, Zushi Team.

The experience of eating here was incredible. Food was outstanding, and despite being a little expensive, it was worth it.
The only reason why I gave 4 starts, and not 5, is because they only allowed us to eat for 1.5 hours. My partner only do one date a month and we chose to come here. It wasn't until we arrived that we were told we could only do 1.5 hours. I accept that many restaurants have a 2 hour window, but 1.5 hours was so short. I felt like we got kicked out. other than this is was amazing.
