Probably best Japanese food in Sydney.
Outdated decor, service was slow and restaurant was half empty due to one sushi chef down.
If ambience and service was better, this would make the restaurant outstanding.
Only options are the degustation which made the dinner take just under 3 hours. There was too much time between courses.
They need a make over - decor and service.

The degustation was superb. It's around $130per person.
Very nice modern Japanese food.

Very small and perfectly charming high end Japanese. Lunch is the more affordable bet. Superb bento boxes make a wonderful meal - wagyu or rudder fish melt in the mouth. Dinner prices are sky high. yoshii has some of the best sashimi in Australia - Azuma is a worthy alternative, but an altogther different experience as it is less intimate

HI everybody !
Very charming place with a nice sushi bar and a lovely restaurant, quiet, zen....I am pretty interested about gastronomics restaurants. ( in Paris I have tasted many michelins stars restaurants). I also loveeeeeee Japanese food, You know what I mean ? Not sushi train or some bloody stuffs like that... NO, I love typical japanese food, like a good quality of fresh fish, home made tofu, creatives sauces, amazing flavours.. The Chef in Yoshii restaurant is a real Japanese "sushi chef " , I have tasted the "christmas menu", it was just awesome !!! Very nice flavours, an amazing plate of sushi... And there is also a very nice cellar! If you like Japanese food (waguy beef, salmon, king fish, tunna, ginger, yozu, tofu...) You will love this restaurant ! FRESH HIGH QUALITY products and HOME MADE !! Rare at this time !!! Now it's the place I want to go to eat some delicious sushi.... Good new : they will change the menu soon and "à la carte" is available also. So Have Fun :-) :-)

Wow! This place is really a rip off! They add 10% to the bill on "public Holidays" and another 2% if you want to use a credit card. The servings are TINY!!! And by that I mean minuscule... $350 later we left saying " ok... So... Where to for dinner now". Sheesh, whoever reviews this needs to learn what good sushi actually is. This is only decent, sorry.
