Have been a number of times. Dont be deceived by the plain shopfront. This is good range of Japanese sushi, katsu, udon, and other don meals done well. Love sitting in the window with great food and watching the world go by.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
