Japanese Street Eats

You may not be able to get to Tokyo for the Olympics right now, but don’t worry because we’ve found some Japanese gold right on our doorstep!

Sydney has its fair share of brilliant Japanese street eateries – and the Inner-City is home to two of the hottest spots in town.


Simulation Senpai in Darling Square is the brainchild of Chase Kojima, founder of The Star Sydney’s acclaimed Sokyo restaurant. Dine-in or take-away, the team are dedicated to serving up beautiful Sashimi with the freshest seasonal produce handpicked daily from the fish market, so you’ll definitely be in for a treat.


Practically around the corner is Gyusha, Chippendale’s newest Japanese yakiniku (BBQ) restaurant and retail butchery. With the highest quality Wagyu beef coming directly from the family farm, owners Jon and Angie Choi, are all about the paddock-to-plate experience where patrons get to choose their cut of meat to take home or grill at the restaurant’s BBQ tables. For those who would rather leave the cooking to the experts, Gyusha’s menu also boasts a terrific selection of Japanese Curries, Shabu Shabu, and Sashimi made to order by the kitchen.
