    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.

    HIGHLY recommended! Mr Shu is passionate at creating an enjoyable dining experience for guests. The food is amazing, especially the tenderised lobster tempura & 2-style flounder presented in crispy bones (source of calcium)! We enjoyed our food w our eyes too, not just w the taste buds. Thank you.

    A very enjoyable experience. A pleasant dining occasion. The food was delicious and fresh. The scallops, in particular were so sweet. The Wagyu Tataki was also another hit! The tempura Lobster came out late but the staff were apologetic and we received a complimentary drink which was very well received. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a bigger group of loud people which took over the ambience, but overall a good night. Thank you to the team at Yuki’s for the delightful service.

    From what I had read I thought I had found a beautiful restaurant however I was disappointed. Requested a view seating with was next to the door. The restaurant needs a revamp, staff need more training. Bathrooms were I need of a clean, I don’t think I’ve been in a bathroom this bad in a restaurant. I’m disappointed as this was a birthday celebration. Towards the end of the evening between our entrees and main we were told the kitchen was closing did we want to order anything else. We felt like we were intruding. We will not be back which is a shame as they have the most beautiful views of the Opera House.

    Unexpected pleasure. Fabulous location and iconic view. Very personable and welcoming staff. They went to extra trouble to make a dish we asked about but was not on the menu. We were impressed. The food is good and well presented. The bill very reasonable. We will return.

    Yuki's is my old time favourite Japanese restaurant for over 25 years for the quality of food, warm service, and the impactful views of opera house and Sydney harbour. Including the delicious sushi & sashimi, we additionally enjoy the Wagyu Shabu Shabu with homemade sesame sauce which was the perfect choice on a cold winter night.

    What a nice surprise to see Shu from Sapporo is working here now! Another surprise is to have blue fin tuna menu served at lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the scrumptious lunch! Love the harbour view from where I was sitting! It will definitely be one of my my new found favorites.

    The food was fresh and delicious . The wine menu very disappointing as a limited offering of wine by the glass. Overall fine given Covid, but nothing exceptional!

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
