    Second time here and probably even better than the first time I came here. All the food was amazing, great recommendations - definitely listen to the waiters. Food came out fast and the food choices were varied to accommodate all six of us. Warning though, parking is hard to find around there so get there at least 5-10mins early to look for parking.

    great service, great food with reasonable price tag. This place was very crowded and therefore only shortcoming was that the dining table was a bit narrow and too close to other diners.

    The location is easy to find! All dishes we ordered were amazing, tasty and never disappointed! Staff are quite nice and friendly! I really love this kind of fusion cuisine, and it’s better than normal Japanese restaurant I think! The atmosphere and decorations here are simple but stylish! So highly recommend!

    Great to be back in Sydney and be able to visit again. I employ people in a service capacity and EVERYONE was excellent. If I had to single someone out the lady controlling the bookings at the front of house was amazing. Some people were getting uneccesarily frustrated but she dealt with it excellently! Big smile! Consistantly top class food and service what more would do you want?

    Cute little restaurant with a good vibe. Hostess could have been more welcoming. Noisy but that gives it atmosphere - not a place for a romantic relaxed meal. Food was excellent and high quality but it did come out very fast so didn’t have time to chill between courses and enjoy the wine. Overall very good.

    We aren’t local but still come here at least twice a month. The food, team, atmosphere and venue are all wonderful. Fish collars, miso eggplant sticks for the win!

    Cho Cho San is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. The food is just amazing. If you love modern Asian cuisine, this is the place you must try!

    Really phenomenal food as usual, requested a quiet table and finally got one in the window that was perfect. Had a bottle of wine and the $80 feast - more than enough for two.

    Food was great, the charcoal chicken was a hit! Got a bit noisy when busy even though it was a Tuesday so if you want to be able to have a conversation come early.

    Service is impeccable ... Dean called to say our table was running 15 minutes late and we received a glass of bubbly for the delay .. Veronica was our server and she was brilliant. Very knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu and helped with our choices which were absolutely delicious. We celebrated a birthday and were made to feel very special. This is my second visit to Cho Cho San and I will definitely dine here again. Both Dean and Veronica and other staff made us feel very welcome... Delicious japanese food with a twist with Great service

    Incredible food and service- the trout was a standout as was the crab fried rice. We dined as a couple and found that 4-5 dishes was enough. Strongly recommend.

About the restaurant

A cracker night at Cho Cho San…

What do you get when you mix a young gun chef, a seasoned restaurateur, a hot Sydney architect and a prime piece of real estate? Cho Cho San of course. A mod Japanese Izakaya that pays respect to Japanese cuisine while simultaneously taking it to the street as small-dish, cocktail-friendly bar food. Perch up on the stool-lined concrete bar for a steamed bun (of course) filled with rolled, smoked duck, hoisin and pickled cucumber or a seriously sensational sliced petuna ocean trout (from the raw bar), dressed with a mix of soy, mirin, black pepper and wasabi. To be frank, no choice is a bad one, so go with your gut and just enjoy the intelligent, easy and delicious food from a cracker team. It’s magic.

Best dish: Petuna ocean trout
