    Staff not attentive -had to literally wave hands wildly in the air to flag them down to order extra drinks/ get service. Maybe need more staff.

    Zushi - Surry HillsResponded 7 days agoWe are terribly sorry for the unhappy experience on your last visit. As you may have known there is a major shortage in staff across hospitality and we are doing our best to try and train our new staffs as best we can. I've done some investigating and there was one of our junior wait staffs at your section. We really appreciate for your feedback so we can constantly improve our service. Sorry again and we do hope to see you back again for a pleasant experience!

    Your new staff tried to introduce the type of fish in a sushi boat, however, she can’t remember what is the name of the fish. She told me she is a first day working at the shop. I think the senior should accompany with her together

    Probably would not return.. Booked it for a 2 year anniversary dinner after great reviews from friends and family and was not impressed. Nothing for our anniversary not even a dessert, Wagyu sushi arrived very very cold as well as the teriyaki duck. Paid $160 for a dinner that left us hungry and unsatisfied.

    Poor hygiene - the waiter dropped the opener for the Japanese soda on the floor and put it on our table and expected us to put it on the top of our bottle to open it. Also the specials and desserts were on a QR code and there was no Wifi, and we didn’t have Australian SIM cards so we couldn’t see them.

    Such a great first experience, food and service was fantastic. Loved the atmosphere of the place as well, the only negative thing is that my partner and I were sat at a table that was right next to bins and a wash up sink - felt a little bit awkward? Nothing to complain about otherwise.
