The Best Japanese Restaurants in Sydney
Sydney’s relationship with Japanese cuisine is stronger than most Australian cities. We have one of the largest Japanese populations in the country, bringing with it a wealth of culinary traditions and techniques passed down from the source.
On top of that, our harbour location gives us the advantage of having a world-class fish market. It’s the reason why Tokyo-level sushi and sashimi is everywhere in Sydney; best experienced at one of our many omakase counters.
We’ve got ramen, too – bowls and bowls of it. But if you’re after a flashy izakaya for sake and whisky, a fiery yakitori den, or a masterclass in Peruvian-influenced Nikkei cuisine, you’ll find it on this list.
