Yayoi Garden Japanese Restaurant, Sydney CBD, Sydney

✦ Located in they Sydney CBD, this is a fancy-ish Japanese restaurant - somewhere you might want to eat for a nice evening out or for a date with your partner (note this one which I visited is the Bridge Street location 'Yayoi Garden')

✦ Service is attentive but is does get busy so try to make a booking

✦ Decor is classy and laid back, with the feeling of being in a Zen garden

✦ Dishes slightly on the pricey side but worth it in terms of taste, portion sizes are average

✦ A few dishes you don't see in a typical Japanese restaurant which are worth trying
Clean and relaxed table setting

Soft shell crab fritter with garden salad - $20 - I wanted more!

Prawn spring roll with sweet mayo - $12 - crispy pastry and fresh prawn flesh

Premium wagyu sukiyaki with mushrooms and udon - $33 and the recommendation of our waitress. Very nice

Unagi Hitsumabushi - $23 - a dish not normally seen in Japanese restaurants with unagi rice and a dashi broth served separately. The waitress noted to try it both without the broth first and with the broth after and see which you prefer. I much prefer the broth and it changes the whole dynamic of the dish and adds an additional element of flavour.

After adding the broth
