Sorry for the bad experience you had recently. There was an issue with our bar fridge and a big repair was done late last week. We apologise that you had a bad quality of drinks and it is terrible to hear that if the follow-up action was not made promptly. We have been trying hard to ensure no customer receive any drinks that are not cold enough and brought up the drinks directly from the coolroom in our storage room. Apology again and we can make sure that it'll never happen again.

Great place for dinner in the city after work. Though undercover and with heaters spaced around everywhere, the space could still be considered outdoors and when we went it was still pretty windy. Despite this, we had a throughly enjoyable dinner sharing a variety of sushi, chicken karaage, balmain tempura and the duck teriyaki and kombu salmon mains. The duck and the ocean roll were my absolute favourites. Service was extremely attentive and they even called 2 minutes after we left to let us know that my friend had left her phone, which was extremely appreciated. Zushi is definitely a good choice for a nicer Japanese dinner!

Glad to hear that your friend received the phone back quickly! And thanks for the lovely feedback on our food. Try Barramundi next time for a main, it is delicious and perfect for this weather as it is served with warm dashi broth. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Arigatou

A party of 2 dined here for $150, after leaving the venue I felt still wanting for more food. Considering the price the portion size was way too unsubstantiated.. the sushi role wasn’t anything but ordinary, sashimi taco was too sweet and the chicken karage was over cooked with burnt coat/ miso infused eggplant is too heavily soaked in sweet sauce.. the staff were very friendly and attentive though..

Loved the lovely waitresses and the great value set $65 menu!

Sashimi - 4/5
Gyoza (replaced prawns) - 5/5
Karaage - 4.5/5
Flathead tempura - 2/5 (not such a fan of tempura nor battered fish in general)
Duck teriyaki - 5/5 (cooked nicely)
Miso cauliflower - 3/5 (quite a different taste than we’re used to, unique though)
Wagyu - 3.5/5 (nice, but not quite our favourite)

I feel that the rice could be served earlier, perhaps with the duck and cauliflower so as to mitigate the leftover rice as the steak portion is limited.

Food was ok, pricey for the quality. Seems you're paying for location rather than quality.
Service was terrible. Had to walk up to someone after waiting for 7-8 minutes at the "wait here" sign. After we were seated, each time we wanted something, we had to flag someone down. At times we had to flag someone several times before we received attention.
