Yakiniku
Rengaya has been serving YAKINIKU in North Sydney since 1993, making it one of Australia’s pioneering Japanese barbeque restaurants. Now, that tradition is set to continue at its new digs on Miller Street – just a short stroll from the original location – in a much more modern, striking setting. The new fit-out features bar-counter seats around an open kitchen, red booth seating divided by Japanese-style timber panelling and a hard-to-miss chandelier. There’s also a 20-seat private dining room. We use only the finest ingredients such as Japanese Black Cattle made in Australia for beef, Sashimi and Seafood fresh from the sea. Rengaya is the restaurant foodies around the country have chosen.

We had a lovely dinner with our kids - they enjoyed the BBQ experience and loved the noodles and novelty. All the food was tasty and we had a mix of BBQ meats and seafood, Bibimbap, Udon, salads and miso - all lovely Asahi on tab was excellent and icy cold. Thank you!

Perplexed by choice we decided to go the banquet option and it proved to be an exceptional idea. I probably would never have sampled the ox tongue otherwise and it was delicious. So much food that we couldn’t manage desert but overall a lovely experience.

The meat was really good, especially love the wagyu sirloin steak. However, the service was not too impressive. My partner and I feel rushed all the time. It feels like a "eat and go" restaurant. The service persons were quite green and untrained. Our sashimi was missed until we reminded them, and it was at the end of the course(after our rice). The experience was messed up. Also, it would be nice if the service persons could tell us how we should have barbequed our meat to enjoy the best of the good ingredient, instead of simply delivering the dishes on the table.
I would say this is a reasonable restaurant but I would not come back anytime soon.

Delicious food, sushi Wagyu and chicken were all amazing. The drinks were also nice. Ambience and service is enjoyable. Not pretentious but classy restaurant. Price is on the higher side but it’s worth it for the taste. Best cuts of Wagyu I’ve ever had.

Overall it is very good, the location of the restaurant, indoor lighting and layout are great. The food is good, especially the beef tongue and sushi rolls. The cocktails are delicious, but the options are slightly less. The only regret is that the sound is slightly noisy.
