The Sydney incarnation of Sushi Tei is just one of a global chain of Japanese food, spanning countries such as Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Shanghai, and Singapore.
Located opposite Chifley Tower, Sushi Tei is in a prime location for urban dining at lunch and in the evenings. What is striking about the restaurant, however, is its relaxed mix of people: ranging from families to students and young professionals. While it is not unusual to see a suit and tie, there is a distinct sense of winding down at the end of a work day.
The food is affordable and authentic, with the option of sitting at a small, window-side table or at the sushi bar itself. An added bonus of sitting at the bar is the sight of the chefs preparing the variety of sushi, sashimi and meat dishes before your very eyes. If you can look away from the over-sized, photographic menu.
