I've dined in with friends, dined alone, had it delivered on hungover Sundays. The food is always delicious. My order is usually the same - popcorn shrimp and (baked) japone rolls. Sometimes the service is not great, on at least 2 occasions the (same) waitress has forgotten my order, or part of it. However this is easily forgotten by the... More

The food taste good. The staff are very unfriendly and lack the basic courtesy and customer service skills. They take the order and then go help the kitchen staff preparing it. Next time you go there make a look at the window on how they prepare your food. They were eating with bare hands while making my order. The waitress... More

Looking at the other reviews I must say I'm surprised! Perhaps we just had a bad night of service. As a couple we went to this restaurant before seeing a concert in Newtown. We made sure to give ourselves an hour and a half to eat and when we arrived at the restaurant it wasn't busy. The food came out... More

Booked a table and they had 1x table for us after 15 mins. Sushi train seats were busy but we got a corner one which was great. Tried the sashimi tacos which I liked least as it was on a hard taco, but it was still fresh. A lot of sauce though. Tried age dashi tofu which was average (I've... More

Greats options for sushi and a great list of Japanese beers to go with. A bit on the expensive side (specially for beers) but well worth it.

Three of us went on a Saturday night. As we had booked, we were given a table. As we found out, we were lucky, because there aren't that many of them. A large part of the floor space is occupied by a sushi train / counter. Food was advised to be Japanese Fusion. It was great. Different take on somewhat... More

Service was great, food was great. Please was small but cosy. Wish they had more tables rather than the sushi train in the middle.

This place was recommended to me by a fellow food lover. The dishes are innovative, fun and delicious. We had the sushi and sashimi Moriawase. The kingfish, spicy salmon roll and salmon belly was exceptional. I couldn't help ogling other diners' food as it all looked good.

Introduced by a friend who's a frequent diner local for a Christmas lunch with a group of friends (about 8 of us in total), and very impressed. Overall sushi fresh, unique and made on order, service somewhat scattered but well-intentioned, and great value for money. Would agree with all previous positive reviews. Ordered individually (as bill could be split), but... More

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull talks a lot about innovation. I suggest he comes to Japone Sushi to see how it is done. Some radical, head-spinning ideas about things you can do with sushi and sashimi here - and the ones we tried worked sensationally well. For instance, with sushi rolls you go for baked, fried or torched (as well as... More
