Shiki's Japanese Restaurant: "Shiki's" Rocks and Circular Quay Restaurants Tip by dustyelisa

Shiki's is a Japanese and sushi restaurant at The Rocks area. It came recommended from the Concierge and the cab driver told me it was famous. Some tables had a great view of the harbor. I choose the sushi bar. I was completely disappointed and overcharged for low quality sushi. The rice was poorly made - it wasn't rinsed enough prior to cooking and was too heavy on the vinegar. They also made gargantuan roles almost made completely of the vinegar laden rice. In the dragon role, there was just sliver of eel and huge portion of what I think was tofu. Half way through the meal I got a strong nose full of fish - a sure sign of a scary place to eat raw fish.

I had better sushi from the take away shops that sold pre-made roles. There are plenty of those around Sydney.

Favorite Dish: None.
