I went their to celebrate both mine and my friend's birthday. We had the course meal, and I must say I enjoyed every course! It was filling and each plate an artwork. They even took a photo and printed it on a card to say happy birthday. It has always been one of my top picks to dine out, and... More

I have been to this place several times, and I really like it because of both the food and atmosphere. The food is always fresh, and presented very beautifully. The teriyaki chicken is one of my favourites. The atmosphere is great, the floor covering is carpet, so the place never feels too noisy no matter how busy it is. Every... More

Azuma is situated in the Chifley Plaza in Sydney which is an iconic Art Deco building. The restaurant is beautiful quiet space with elegant decor. Food was amazing. We started with Miso and ever so silky tofu. Excellent Sashimi, so fresh and tasty and amazing selection of sushi. The prawn & vege tempura were divine. Teriyaki chicken fillet was probably... More

We went to Azuma two times in five days. We had ramen tempura udon, edamame, agadeshi tofu, lots of sushi of course, and we enjoy all Japanese traditional courses. Sushi is very good and fresh. But Be careful with sushi dynamite it is so spicy...

My sister in law and I had a girl's date in this date for dinner. The food was well laid out according to your budget. We ended up having the beef rating 5 and it's not something that is super spectacular but the waitress recommended rating 9 which is $65 more. The appetizer was great but nothing special after that.... More

The ambience in this restaurant is really well done, with a wheelchair ramp as well as private rooms available. We came here expecting traditional Japanese meal, they do still offer it on their menu but we decided to try their degustation meal. The degustation menu is more a fusion rather than traditional Japanese, if you are after traditional, stick to... More

This was my second visit to Azusa after a number of years. This is one of the more traditional Japanese restaurants in Sydney. The service was efficient and friendly. Portion sizes were extremely large for Japanese meals and I couldn't finish my lunch (Aussie sized). I had the salmon teriyaki (a bit too sweet for my liking - better without... More

We came to this restaurant as our previous experience with the same owner at another place was quite good. The decoration was very average overall. We were given a room for dining but again the interior decoration does not match a fine dining restaurant. Service was very average and there were times we had to wait for quite long for... More

Monday to Friday this is a business restaurant. Suits and some city shoppers so the pace is generally fast. Bento boxes and sushi/ sashimi on offer. Good quality ingredients traditionally served. Average wine list. Today service wasn't great and the decor could certainly do with an upgrade. Ok.

Ticks all the boxes, right in the City Chifley tower. Due to some renovation works in the building recently, finding Azuma after office hours is a bit of a confusing detour. However, all is forgiven when you meet up with very attentive and caring staff, especially in private rooms, all set and ready. Drinks selection is pleasing, degustation meal is... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
