I've been to Kura four times in a month! That's because it's cheap and the food is GREAT! They have fantastic noodles for every kind of taste and the fish is fresh! Excellent!!

First time visit. Picked this place following TA reviews. The food was fresh, good quality and service was quick. Plenty of seating upstairs. Will return again.

Recommended by a friend and the food is indeed not bad. Small shop at a corner. Appetisers were great but the soft shell crab was too little in the soft shell crab sushi roll.

Walled at about 6 with my mum and wife and we're given a seat just by the entrance. The food was ordered on an iPad and was served relatively quickly. The chicken karange was just ok. The ramen wasn't brilliant either but was good. The Japanese curry was good and decently portioned. I ordered a creamy udon dish with spicy... More

A hole in the wall seemingly run by Japanese, so other than these, there's nothing really Japanese about the food experience.

This is a small restaurant so we were lucky to get a window table when we arrived. I had a yummy bento box with sashimi and chicken Katsura. Cost was $15 which is reasonable. We sat chatting for ages and they kept topping up the waters without trying to move us on.

The food was decent and good value for money. The only problem is they don't have enough tables so if you go at a busy time, there is a good chance you won't find a table.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday after doing a few things in the city in the morning. It was a choice between Thai and here. I'm so glad we chose Kura. .Pleasant atmosphere. and great staff. They have one of those iPad menu devices that make it so easy to order and get attention of staff. As you order each item,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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 window to Asian sweets and bakeries, there is something for all tastes. Paddy’s Markets is the largest flea market in Sydney where you can find souvenirs, clothing, gifts and fruit and vegetables at unbeatable prices. At night, Chinatown comes alive with entertainment including theatre, nightclubs and bars that are open until the early morning.
