At the edge of the CBD, in the spectacular 22-hectare waterfront precinct where an old container terminal once stood, discerning foodies can now find some of the city’s best sushi in Barangaroo. Established in 2016, the newest addition to the Zushi restaurant empire is in Sydney’s impressive new harbour foreshore playground. Zushi Barangaroo is both stylish and comfortable, capturing the relaxed style of a typical Japanese bar or izakaya designed by the renowned architect Koichi Takada. We offer premium service complimented with a wide selection of imported beers, Japanese inspired cocktails, and Japanese sake and whisky.
Zushi prides itself on using only carefully sourced local ingredients; the freshest vegetables and sustainable seafood where possible and most of the menu is gluten-free. We are open every day for lunch and dinner, serving delectable sushi, sashimi and share plates. And the glorious harbour views are pretty tasty too.

I would like to start by saying that the food was great - I have no complaints here.
But as many may know, service really does make a large impact and a lasting impression. We were a large group, served by a lady name BOO-a (I actually do not know how to spell her name, but her attitude and service was the booiest of BOOS!).

I had my phone sitting on a napkin and had the napkin ripped away from the opposite side of the table, meaning Boo-a had leant herself right across the table because she wanted to clear it quickly (a simple, "do you mind if i grab that napkin" or even waiting till we actually leave the table to pick up the napkin would of been suffice. This also would've saved her leaning across the table - something that no diner really wants to witness). She also did not give us space to review and make payment. Most servers usually take a step back or turn away when it comes to entering your pin in (some people like to keep these things confidential.....) - but Boo-a had no sense of decency to afford us this space and discreetness. Honestly, these were only a few examples of her horrid service, I haven't even mentioned her terrible attitude from the get go.

Because of this experience, myself and the 9 other diners with me will most likely not ever return to Zushi Barangaroo. The food is not good enough to outdo Boo-a's horrid service (hence the lack of tip....though I am well aware that a service charge was applied – an absolute waste, considering our lack thereof).

So sorry to hear that you were't satisfied with the service you had.Appreciate the time you have taken to comment.I checked your bill and can assure you there's no service charge applied, simply a credit card surcharge.We'll do more investigation further into this matter, so we can ensure other customers are not affected.Hope to see you back again and enjoy Zushi the way it should have been experienced the first time round, would love it if you could send us an email to barangaroo@zushi.c om.au

My husband and I enjoy visiting Zushi on an annual basis to redeem my birthday voucher from them. I think it’s such a generous gift to subscribers of the restaurant.

It’s modern Japanese with a fusion twist which I love.

Our recent visit saw us order:
• A Super Mario mocktail & sparkling water
• Tuna Tataki
• Seared Scallops - my favourite dish of the evening!
• Lobster Tempura - this was a seasonal special
• Wagyu Steak
• Goma Mushrooms
• 2 x white rice

I love how the staff bring out our dish in order of the category each dish falls under so the Tuna Tataki came first followed by the Seared Scallops & etc. It makes you feel like you are enjoying a degustation course even though you picked every course yourself. There was no chopping and changing of the order the dishes arrived and this is something Zushi does very well.

Every dish was presented beautifully and tasted amazing. My fave were the Seared Scallops. Beautifully cooked with a gorgeous sauce.

If we weren’t so full, we would have been pleased to try the Chocolate Mille-Feuille and the Matcha Cheesecake!

Thank you, Zushi! We look forward to visiting you again soon! Keep up the great work!

Shared salmon roll, chicken kaarage, gyosas, veg tempura and roast mushrooms. Produce very fresh, flavours very clean, but light on the Umami factor. The mayo for the kaarage was too sweet, detracted from the chicken. Next time will try more seafood. Very good service.
