Good fusion Japanese. Great service.
Casual dining only though. Limited dessert menu. Ambience a bit average.
And only 1 basic washroom for M/F ea.

Hi Shivers. Thanks for your warm feedback. Our chefs are always working on food really hard and it would be good to have more variety on dessert. We will always keep trying to have better food and service. Thank you.

Another lovely lunch at Zushi - we were too lazy to choose from the fabulous menu so ordered a bento box each - which were lovely

I Have been to Zushi several times and always enjoy it. It is a little pricey compared to other Japanese restaurants with similar quality food, but it is delicious and close to home.

The pricing was way more than it was worth. Myself and company ordered the bao buns which were so delicious and we could’ve just eaten a tray of those. However the bento boxes were not mice at all. Agadeshi tofu tasted like rubber, salad was weirdly peppery and chicken teriyaki was over cooked and had little to no sauce accompanying it. Very disappointed

Never have I been to a restaurant where gluten free is the rule not the exception! Not only was it refreshing to feel normal but to have such a selection!
The sushi was incredible, mouth-wateringly fresh flavoursome fish.
The wagyu beef was soft melt in the mouth cooked to perfection.
The spinach and sesame side was a fantastic accompaniment so full of flavour & really unique.
Having a gluten free soya sauce bought to the table especially.
The portions are very generous leaving some to take home.
Service here was impeccable, friendly and intuitive! They even actually read the note on opentable I had left to say I was GF before I arrived.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

The food was beautiful. The staff were faultless. Unfortunately we were put at a table upstairs which was right up against the front wall of the building and about 15cm from the next table. It was quite warm upstairs and with the low ceiling (although architecturally brilliant) it felt quite claustrophobic and we could hear every word of the seemingly loud conversation at the next table. By the end of the meal the crowd had thinned out and it was a bit cooler - so more amenable. We will return but will ask for a table downstairs next time.

The staff were so wonderful - super accomodating, helpful and patient. The food was amazing and a particular stand out for me was the table itself: it was the best seat in the house, fab lighting and really good noise levels. A little bit expensive but totally worth it x

Lovely atmosphere, would be ideal for dates (sit upstairs)! The sushi and sashimi was fresh, we also really enjoyed the seared kingfish, gyozas and ocean roll - the ocean roll was a bit small in comparison to other places I've tried. Their portions weren't the biggest but not too bad. It is a tiny bit more expensive than your average sushi trains/local jap restaurants but overall they are trying for that 'next level up' experience. Service was good, they were busy so was hard to get the attention of waiters at times but overall were helpful and friendly.

Now one of the quiet long- established Japanese restaurant in Surry Hills.
I’ve still got a photo of my self and friends having lunch here back in 2011! Beautiful venue, good fresh food and friendly service.
