Toko is a favourite sushi restaurant in Sydney, famed for its striking cocktails and enticing menu of 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 its imported whiskies.


Over in Kingsford, Niji offers fresh maki and nigiri served on the best sushi train 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.


For the best sushi in Surry Hills, grab a table at Haco, where the chefs choose what you eat. While the menu remains a mystery until the day, what you can expect is sashimi of the highest quality, signature tempura dishes and seasonal small plates.
