    We had such a great night at Yuki. The staff were very welcoming and efficient and the food was amazing! Every dish was really fresh and beautifully presented with great flavours - and what a spot! The views over the harbour towards the opera house were just stunning! We’ll definitely be back...

    Went there for wedding anniversary. Great view and food! we were not seated next to the window so couldn’t take photos with the awesome view. It was a full house on a Friday night, so noise level was greater than expected.

    They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Whether talking about art, music or food a personal opinion is just that. Value, as opposed to cost, is similar. Can you separate a part from the whole, and still regard it in isolation as a meaningful judgment of one? The experience of dining at Yukis is a combination of a number of things. I value each visit highly because of the consistent levels of performance. Edible art where you can appreciate the composition, texture, colour, smell and flavours in that moment is as unique as it is personal. Each occasion is an experience, and the combination of occasions and experience develops a personal sense of awareness about value. We continue to appreciate our own experience while sharing it further with people who are also significant to us. Thank you to Shu, Chef and all the staff for our ongoing appreciation of every meal.

    Staff couldn’t have been more polite or informative. Excellent food and excellent sake!!!!! Was a little thin on custom so the ambience was a little austere but the amazing view made up for it.

    The whole experience was delightful. Booking was easy. We were given a window seat to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Food was amazing, service was impeccable and the ambiance of the place was warm and pleasant without being noisy or posh. Definitely recommend for couples and will be coming back.

    Beautiful restaurant with superb atmosphere, view and service. Reasonably priced for a fine-dining restaurant. It was just a pity that a gathering at one section of the restaurant was too loud, but overall we still enjoy the dinner.

    The food was fresh and timely, but very standard. The restaurant itself was nice but lacked internal ambience, but it's all about the location & the view. The staff were very polite but varied; one was knowledgeable and helpful with queries and the other didn't seem to know and overcharged us on the bill.

    We were very haopy with Yuki's which we chose for our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was intimate and view across to the Opera House was fantastic. The service was excellent but the restaurant was not busy being a wet Tuesday evening. Very pleased with the food and serving sizes very generous. Very happy with our whole experience.

    We rediscovered Yukis in September 2020 once COVID restrictions started to ease and we have since returned many times. We have tried most dishes on the menu but also jump at the opportunity to try any of the specials on offer each time we visit. We totally trust Shu and the Chef with the quality of each dish, even if sometimes we need to put our typical western palate to one side. We have never been disappointed, Each dish is well explained but we love the assorted sashimi dish most of all, based on some staples but also changing with the market specials. We usually have two entrees, two mains (but always the assorted sashimi), and can occasionally squeeze in a dessert. We have also sampled some of the reserve sake and must say that they are of exceptional quality. We would normally travel overseas once or twice a year but given the impact of COVID we are more than happy to indulge regularly at Yukis. The food, staff and ambience are exceptional in my view and we look forward to each opportunity to return.

    A perfect experience! All of Yuki’s staff are incredible and go above and beyond to cater for our needs. Very tasty Japanese cuisine with unique flavours, great presentation and we ordered over 10 meals and they came out so quickly; didn’t need to wait at all between meals. All the staff are so nice and the views of the opera house are amazing. Great for a group of 5 or more. Loved it !

    We always have a wonderful meal at Yukis. The deluxe sashimi is artistically presented and super fresh. We had a new dish as per suggested to us, fish head cooked In saki, delicious. We discovered Yukis because of COVID-19, one positive from lockdown. Over our many visits we have tried many many of the dishes, always they are presented beautifully. The service is superb and of course the view is spectacular.

About the restaurant

Japanese with an iconic Australian scene.

High up on the fourth floor of the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Sydney’s Circular Quay is Yukis fine dining Japanese restaurant. If you’ve forgotten how beautiful Sydney Harbour is then Yukis is the perfect place to go and remind yourself - the view is simply spectacular! The food also turns heads. Head Chef Norihiro Nakatani has created a menu which utilises classic and modern Japanese cooking techniques and many dishes embrace the restaurants close proximity to the ocean. Dine on delicate sushi and sashimi for entree before diving into a tasty wagyu beef tataki or deep fried soft shell crab. For a sweet finish try the assorted dessert plate for a little taste of everything. You’ll want to savor every bite - partly because it tastes so good, and partly because you won’t want to leave that view.

Best Dish: premium wagyu beef paper hot pot
