This purist Japanese restaurant on Crown Street is worth waiting for, which, you’ll have to inevitably do if you arrive on a weekend night. With branches already across Sydney, Zushi has established a reputation for its stylish Japanese restaurant designs and its fresher-than-at-the-fish-markets sashimi and exciting hand rolls that are a meal in itself. Zushi also offers cooking classes take place the first Saturday of every month.

Along Surry Hill’s dining strip on Crown Steet.

Perched on the restaurant’s mezzanine level, it’s easy to see why the newly opened Zushi on Crown Street has become instantly popular. The younger sibling to Zushi on nearby Victoria Street is a slicker version of the original Sydney sushi haunt – solid wooden tables, black dining chairs and timber wall finishes dominate the low-lit space that welcomes guests with a monochrome floral mural on the oversized glass entrance.

Down below, busy sushi maestros can be seen at work in the open kitchen, while swift service from friendly wait staff creates an atmosphere of seasoned efficiency. On the upper level, hundreds of layered wooden slats create a sculptural ceiling fixture and patrons’ lively Saturday night chatter fills the void above the main dining area.

Soy sauce in tiny green clay teapots waits on the table for our ‘sushi small’ entrée to arrive – this time around, the chef’s selection produces six tuna-filled maki rolls plus kingfish, tuna and salmon-topped nigiri. A side of finely shredded daikon (Chinese radish) and carrot salad in a vinegary dressing sprinkled with black sesame seeds is a sweet ‘n’ sour accompaniment that cuts through the richness of the oily fish. The teriyaki salmon main course arrives soon after, butter-soft and cloaked in a light, savoury glaze. Throughout the meal, our jug of sake sangria with diced apples, lychees and green tea goes down a refreshing treat, and there’s Sapporo on tap for beer-loving blokes.

No doubt the outdoor courtyard will be a coveted seating area during the coming summer months, as punters flock for filling Japanese feeds and wallet-friendly prices.

Zushi’s mezzanine level is the perfect space for a party or function at any time day or night, 7 days a week. The entire restaurant can also be hired out for lunch functions on weekends. The mezzanine level seats 35-40, and the entire restaurant (including outside courtyard area) seats 80.
