The Story

We were in Sydney for a couple of nights on business and after a very full-on day packed with meetings, we wanted to relax and recharge with some healthy and high quality food.

A friend recommended Sushi-e. It’s in the CBD, part of the Merivale group, and in the Establishment building at 252 George Street.

It was a 10 minute, people-dodging walk for us at around 6:30pm.

It had been described to us as “A small sushi bar tucked away on the edge of a lounge bar.” After being suited and booted all day, we were dressed down, which was a mistake. This is a beautiful place and the huge bar you enter from the street is Sydney-impressive. Don’t dress down, dress smart.

Ok, so putting our sneakers and jeans to one side, we sidled to the lift and went up a level to find Sushi e.

It is not a huge space, and is indeed tucked away to the side of a spectacular lounge bar full of Chesterfield sofas.

There is a central, open kitchen were several sushi craftsmen are practicing their art in front of Sydney suits dining solo, in couples and small groups. At the bar, all the action is right in front of you, and the dishes these people create are worth watching.

We sat at a small table for two and were very well looked after by some lovely and beautifully dressed waitresses, all in black. This is big-city Sydney people, so leave the thongs and Bintang singlets at home!

You can see from our snaps that the food looks absolutely gorgeous, and how it looks is plain-Jane compared to the flavours that pop in your mouth.

We didn’t hold back and sampled sashimi tuna salad, two types of spicy sushi, sashimi platters and an incredible scampi main (see pic).

We could rave on here because we did during the meal, and we have done a few time since. But we won’t. We’ll just say that next time you find yourself in Sydney, and if you’re a fan of Japanese food, go find Sushi-e. You will be LOVE it.
