We all had a really bad experience at Zushi Surry Hill.

The people working there were extremely rude and impatient.

Won’t be attending this restaurant again.

The experience of eating here was incredible. Food was outstanding, and despite being a little expensive, it was worth it.
The only reason why I gave 4 starts, and not 5, is because they only allowed us to eat for 1.5 hours. My partner only do one date a month and we chose to come here. It wasn't until we arrived that we were told we could only do 1.5 hours. I accept that many restaurants have a 2 hour window, but 1.5 hours was so short. I felt like we got kicked out. other than this is was amazing.

We went on Christmas Eve for a casual family dinner, food was excellent, the service was outstanding, our server was informative and attentive and fun with our children!
We had a good mix of modern sushi and traditional Japanese dishes the Okonomiyaki was divine and indulgent, but actually everything was great! Located in Surrey Hills 5 mins from CBD and worth the trip East.
We live in London and have amazing Japanese restaurants to compRe to and this is super high on our list!!!

The food was okay, but the sashimi tacos were served with brown, bruised avocado and the fish wasn't cut well and didn't seem fresh. If you're seated upstairs, you'll end up smelling like cooking/frying oil as you're right above the fryers. I don't think we'll be back as the cost was really high for the quality and value. Service was nice and fast. Cocktail menu was very sweet. Sake was good. Sushi menu weirdly isn't very extensive. Overall, it was fine, but don't think we'll be back again.

Food was Excellent. The floor plan however was quite close together and crowded on the side bench seating upstairs, we felt too close to the group next to us. The service was slow to begin with but friendly throughout our evening. Overall it was a good night and we would go again.
