Building on a successful partnership that began with celebrated Potts Point restaurant, The Apollo, Christie and Barthelmess’s Cho Cho San is an exploration of Japanese food culture.
Cho Cho San represents a cross-fertilization of ideas, we have spent time in Japan where we were inspired by their rich and multi-layered food and drink culture. With Cho Cho San, we wanted to bring some of the big-city buzz and excitement of Tokyo back to Sydney. Chef and Co-owner, Barthelmess is developing an ever-changing, seasonal menu keeping to the Japanese philosophy of simplicity where ingredients are the stars. Joined by Head Chef Max Smith, working together the focus is fresh food, healthy eating, using hibachi grilling and steaming techniques.

    Disappointed about the service. Food is ok, but not as good as expected. Reluctant to recommend to others.

    We brought friends who hadn’t dined at Cho Cho San before, they loved it! We had the set menu so they could try several dishes, excellent value! Service was spot on! The best place in Potts Point! Highly recommend

    Very clever food combining traditional ingredients with modern techniques. Venue was pokey but well designed. Noise level can be an issue for some.

    Awful. Mediocre food, highly overrated. Interesting decor but we couldn’t enjoy it because of how cramped, dark, and loud this place was inside. This is a terrible place to celebrate anything.

    This is not our first time to CHO CHO SAN. High quality service, expensive wine list, and an innovative menu are the stand outs here. They've changed the menu slightly to stay fresh. The seaweed is very strong, with most dishes being better than the next. The only one we didn't like was the squid stuffed with rice. There are too many good dishes to feedback. I would recommend CHO CHO SAN to anyone looking for great food, great service, and excellent wine. Just be prepared to pay for the experience. So its more suited to a special occasion unless you're on the expense account.

    We asked for guidance from the waiter to make sure we didn’t over order - we definitely did end up over ordering notwithstanding. Cocktails were amazing!
