For early on a Saturday night dinner, Wagaya was busy but by no means full. Took a long time to get seated, despite being a small group and plenty of tables. Once seated there are Japanese style screens to place your order. Long wait for...More

The lighting for the entrance and stairs at Wagaya Sydney is totally inadequate, to the point of being dangerous. The staff waved us to our booth without greeting us or explaining the ordering process. The tablet we apparently had to order from wasn't working. We...More

We have been to this resteraunt for a few years now once a year. The food still maintains its flavour & texture. The only thing this time, the staff were not as attentive as previous visits.

This is about as good as it gets in terms of Japanese cuisine in Sydney in terms of the food quality. It's by no means up to the same standard as what you would get in Japan, but it's definitely one of the best (if...More

This place delivers its product quite well as in fast service. You order off the touchpad which is a mixed blessing device. As said the orders arrive fairly quickly after you order. I do however find the place a bit 'factory like' in that the...More

Tiger-flanked archways on Dixon Street mark the
entrance to the “little Asia” of Sydney. A walk
through Chinatown is a feast for the senses where
aromas, tastes, sounds and visions of dancing tigers
transport you to a different world. Chinatown visitors
can expect a melting pot of Asian food at the
neighbourhood's specialty delis and groceries. From
yum cha to handmade noodles, BBQ ducks hanging in the
