Stop by Nazimi for some good sushi and Udon noodle whenever you need to take a quick break from shopping to recharge yourself. It's right next to the QVB on York Street, so it's also a good location to sit outside watching people if you are lucky enough to grab one the 2 tables outside.

My friend recommend a petite nice restaurant - nazimi. Service was good and felt respect customer , also food was delicious. We ordered entree for tuna tataki, Karage chicken, softshell crab tartlet and for the main dish Sushi/sashimi n teriyaki chicken, Kakuni pork belly. All food was fresh and delicious. We are satisfied with dinner in nazimi.

Bit of a wasted Japanese food experience as I found the food lacked finesse, the sashimi did not sparkle, and found some dishes such as the pork and the solid chunks of eggplant pretty dreadful. Granted - I was not in charge of the ordering and my tastes were not taken into account by the person who did. Also didn't... More

Nazimi is down stairs off the street. It's small and quiet; I didn't feel out of place sitting by myself. The service was attentive, well timed, fast and not imposing. The food was great and the drinks menu impressive.

We made reservations online for 4 people for 7pm. We got to the restaurant early, at 6:50. There was a table for 4 available but we were told our table is not ready. We weren't invited to wait inside as there is no space or bar. We said we'll be back in 10 minutes. We got back at 7 and... More

Dear Stefan, We deeply do apologize for that night. Honestly, we had heaps of bookings on that night. Moreover, some reservations they came late so your reserved table wasn't ready at that time. Also the table reserved at 6:50pm, actually they made booking at 6:30 but they called and let us know they will be late around 20 minutes. We... More

Our family went there for lunch. The service was attentive and food delicious. We ordered Nazimi delux and Unagi Kabayaki and kids ordered tempura udon and teriyaki salmon sashimi combo. They tasted fresh and delicious which made up for the sewage smell as you walk down the stairway to the restaurant (not the restaurant's fault but they should feed this... More

Had a relaxing meal with a friend and found this place to be fairly good -limited menu, good food and polite, attentive service. The alcohol selection was also limited but what was on offer was good. The only disappointment was the tempura calamari which was mostly vegetables with a few snippets of calamari included - and I did check with... More

Went for dinner with a girlfriend. Small place with about 20-25 people quite closely seated together. Waitress kept bumping my bag on the back of my chair but not her fault as it is a small restaurant. Lucky we booked (Sat night). Very friendly service. Excellent value dinner bento box. $29 per box.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
