We were looking all over for a sushi train to experience because we heard Sydney does them really well! We stumbled upon this place while looking through the shopping mall, and we were not disappointed- by the reasonable price and the freshness/taste of the sushi,...More

Love this place, best value sushi train I’ve found. All plates $3.50 and plenty of salmon, tuna and scallops. Always busy but the wait is usually short. Also plenty of larger plates to order also.

We use to frequent this place but not anymore. Their portion sizes has dramatically changed. A grilled salmon is not the size of your thumb. So when they started downsizing on portions we just upped-and-gone. If your paying more than $3.50 for a plate of...More

It’s train tracks sushi. Mainly Korean staff and cooks. No sushi chefs. Portions are small. Quality is ok. Place is warm and sweaty. Maybe building centre aircon is not designed for a big restaurant. It’s in a mixed shopping and office complex. It’s fine but...More

Very small space, hard to eat- and you can't remove space by clearing the sushi plates as they need to add up the price in the end. A bit confusing as it's all electronic when it comes to ordering so why can't it just save...More

On Saturday night, I was there with my partner. There was nothing wrong with all delicious plates, what we really enjoyed. However, I was a bit surprised when the chef gave to us our order without announcing. She simply pushed the plates towards my partner's...More

We have benn to this sushi restaurant on our previous visits to see my husband's family in Sydney. The first time a fellow patron introduced us to the seared salmon nigiri. Quite honestly I could eat that for lunch every day. It's better if you...More

This is seriously an addictive sushi train. I eat here once a week on average and it is so delicious and the sushi is so fresh. The soft-shelled crab sushi is amazing and the spicy seared scallop sushi is so delicate and delicious. Everything is...More

The food is fresh and delicious. Lots of variety on their menu, prices are good and the sushi train is varied and fun. Service is very average, but due to the high volume of patrons, not really a place you need to worry about it...More

I have been here a number of times and it never disappoints. The sushi is always interesting and the salmon sashimi so fresh and full of flavour. With the food continuously coming past I tend to overeat but that's half the fun. Definitely recommended.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
