If you love japanese food and bbq and haven't been here, you must visit at least once. Lots of choices for a flat fee. One of the best japanese bbq's in Sydney.

Pretty much exactly what the title says. It's on the pricier end of the scale but I think it's worth it. The Martin Place location makes it a great after-work option for those working in the CBD too.

In the nineties when Suminoya first began, a CBD alleyway like Hosking Place, would have been unlikely to even have residents. Over the ensuing years, what began as a Japanese restaurant doing traditional charcoal barbeque cooking inside the kitchen, expanded to include charcoal barbeques at...More

Rude staff, average food quality, premium price with many extra charges and rules. Beware of coming here, you will leave with disappointed.

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
