Sushi Rio, it looks like you've solved a fair few problems. Let me explain. A major problem that many Sydney Food Lovers have, is knowing where the best place is to buy some quality sushi on a sushi train in the city. Sushi Rio, good news for you - you're the cheapest. At $3 a dish between the hours of midday to around 5pm, it's no wonder why you're so busy.
Love the open plan set up
The ambience is electric. Depending on how many people are with you, you might have to wait a few minutes for a suitable seat. The chefs welcome us in Japanese in a loud, clear voice. It can be deafening, depending on whereabouts in the train you're sitting down.
The spring rolls
The seaweed sushi plate was a refreshing start. There is always a waiter around to tend to your needs. The person sitting next to me also had a great miso soup in view. Any drink you ask for here, it comes out at warp speed. The seaweed was fresh, and the rice was not overpowering. Great to see.

Next, I tucked into a few spring rolls with sweet chilli sauce. The sauce was just right, and the spring rolls were rather tasty. Unfortunately, they were a bit cold. Otherwise a pretty good lunch so far.
Definitely saved the dish of the day until last. Loved the octopus bowl. Not sure of the sauce combination, yet the sauce blended in beautifully with small and fresh octopus pieces. Quite a filling number in itself.
A busy vibe indeed
A great, quick lunch pit stop. Three dishes was my limit at the time.
