There's no denying that Japanese cuisine is one of the most remarkable cuisines on the planet. It's simplicity that's delivered in the most sophisticated way. And there's no arguing that Australia upholds its culinary excellence throughout its seemingly never-ending list of Japanese eateries dishing up authentic sushi.

This place is as much a feast for the belly as it is for the eyes with a gorgeous modern Japanese decor and dishes that almost look too good to eat. Toyosu Suisan doesn't only serve sushi, but their sushi sure is special and not to be missed. The rest of their menu comprises all the things you'd expect on an authentic Japanese menu, with a slightly modern twist and drool-worthy aesthetics.

If specialised sushi... yup, not normal sushi, but specialised sushi sounds like your vibe, then you should add Hoshiya to your 'must-visit-list' immediately. Sashimi, nigiri and maki are just the beginning of what you can expect at this Japanese restaurant. If you're looking for a full-on Japanese feast, definitely try their bao buns and ramen too!
