Jazushi Surry Hills

Posted 2014-02-24 by Shelley Bornsteinfollow
A little music with my dinner? Don't mind if I do. That's exactly what you get at Jazushi , a cosy and warm, alternate Japanese restaurant located on Devonshire Street in Surry Hills.

Tempura Camembert


Who doesn't like to get serenaded while they eat? The live jazz musicians who play throughout the night are great. The music is the perfect level, and loud enough to sway along to while still soft enough to talk. Nice and mellow, and I have to say very soothing.

Funky decor


In this restaurant, the d├ęcor is a little bit different to your usual Japanese hangout. Exposed red brick walls and silver, fairy light covered decorations in the shape of instruments give the place a fun glow and the dramatic arch that overhangs the kitchen is almost rustic.

The interesting menu


The food is also a bit different. Gone is the extensive sushi and sashimi menu (although some is on offer). In its place are tasty temptations such as beetroot salad ($14) and tempura Camembert ($16). These we couldn't resist.

Beetroot salad


We also ordered the gyoza ($12) which was crispy but a tad greasy;

Teriyaki chicken ($22), a solid option;

Teriyaki chicken


the Wagyu beef ($25) which was just so soft and delicious;

and the Hitsumabushi eel ($18), a completely different style of dish which came beautifully presented on a stack of rice, and required us to pour a pot of tea over it, turning it almost into a soup. Fun and yum.

The staff were courteous and efficient, and with the bill coming to around $25 per person; it was a happy group of friends who parted at the end of their Sunday night together.
