Over in Kingsford, Niji offers fresh maki and nigiri served up by one of the best sushi trains in Sydney, as well as traditional izakaya-style dining. Highlights? Check out the chef's signatures; the kingfish carpaccio and slipper lobster tempura are particularly delicious.


Toko is a CBD favourite, famed not only for its striking cocktails but also its enticing menu of sushi and robata-grilled fare. The venue has a relaxed ambience to it, with bare brick walls, warm lighting and friendly service. When you visit, make sure to sample their imported whiskies.


For a jazzy Japanese restaurant in Sydney's CBD, make a visit to Masuya. The kitchen uses only fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and serves up some of the best sushi in town. Wash it down with an Australian lager or imported sake and relax in the eatery's laid-back atmosphere.
