We booked Zushi for a long lunch to end our weekend stay in Surry Hills. It was perfect! We ordered the $55 set menu and added some oysters and scallops.
The food journey was just what we needed, starting off very fresh and ending on the warm duck and vegetables.
All of the seafood tasted fresh and the duck was cooked to perfection.
Would definitely return.

My friend and I visited on a busy Friday night and had the $75 tasting menu. The food was delicious but my only complaint is that the salmon was slightly over done for my liking. That said, I will definitely be back more for another wonderful dining experience.

The food was very fresh and well presented. The service was good but the steak was chewy and unlike any Wagyu I have had before. The Barangaroo restaurant steak was far superior and cooked well.
I would not recommend the steak in the Surry hills restaurant

We had a pleasant meal. We had ordered the degustation so we could try different things. The presentation was good, service polite and mostly helpful, the food was OK but not amazing. The music was a bit loud, but luckily we were outside but it was still a bit distracting. Some portions were quite small but we were full enough by the end of the main course.
