If you love sashimi, you really love sashimi. And if you love sashimi and live in Sydney, chances are you've had a piece or two from Zushi at some point. In addition to restaurants in Surry Hills and Darlinghurst, they've also opened at Barangaroo with a striking fit-out courtesy of the acclaimed Koichi Takada Architects. The waterfront space boasts a semi-open kitchen, a dedicated sushi bar and a stunning, all-weather outdoor dining area with room for 106 people — it's bound to be red-hot property over the summer months. There's also a walk-up bar space, where Zushi's resident sake expert can hook you up with a few drops from the extensive range while you're waiting for that table.

In true Zushi style, the modern Japanese fare here strikes a balance between innovation and authenticity, with this menu a mix of favourites, specials, and seasonal dishes unique to the Barangaroo restaurant. You'll find specialty sushi and sashimi, alongside an assortment of Izakaya-inspired share plates. The seared tuna steak coated in quinoa and sesame with wasabi mash is a must-order. Backing it up, there's that hefty range of sake, some clever sake cocktails, and a NSW-led wine list, which has plenty of love for biodynamic and organic labels.

Zushi joins a slew of other eateries that at Barangaroo, including Belles Hot Chicken, Lotus, Cirrus and The Rabbit Hole.


NATIONAL BURGER DAY, MAY 28: Keeping their focus on blending the old and the new, for National Burger Day on May 28, Zushi has whipped up a Japanese popcorn chicken burger filled with pickled cucumber, cabbage, American cheese and chilli mayo, with buns made from sushi rice topped with furikake. It's available via Deliveroo only — you won't find it on their in-store menu.
