The Milk Moustache’s Katelin Meredith tracks down sushi in the city of Sydney that’s perfect for students. 


Located in the heart of King Street, it makes Asakusa an ideal location for any student enjoying what Newtown has to offer, featuring an atmosphere with not only charm, but noisy authenticity. Decently priced, and BYO wine for a lovely night with friends. You cannot go passed the salmon bento box (pictured) either; you may just have to struggle through the confusing handwritten menu.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of Broadway Shopping Centre, is Tomodachi. It’s your ideal hideaway from those pesky sales assistants and crazed shop-a-holics, providing you with a mix of relaxed seating, or face-to-face dining, with the chefs inside the sushi train. A little on the pricier side of things for students, but often a popular choice for others due to its close proximity to uni. The prawn tempura sushi circulating on the train is a crowd pleaser.

Daruma, to say the least, is hidden. To know about this place, you have to have been shown it. Beautiful wall length windows allow you to watch the world whizz by, as you indulge in miso soup and quality sashimi. For salmon lovers like me, this is the ideal place for you. Although on the pricier side of things for students, the mini udon noodles for $2 may make it worthwhile. You cannot go passed the salmon sashimi box (pictured).

Possibly my favourite sushi in the whole of Sydney. A big call to make, I know. Aesthetically beautiful atmosphere, both upstairs and down, and lovely staff. Cheap Tuesday is a winner for students, featuring cheap cocktails as well as specialty sushi rolls for only $10, of which you must get the ‘Zushi’ roll (pictured). Pricy, but definitely worth saving your pennies for.

To set the scene, I go here almost every lunchtime. Guaranteed cheapest sushi train in the city, with every plate being $2.50 for students. It’s a bit of a struggle with sushi variety, and also lack of air-conditioning makes for a hot summer ahead. The mini udon noodles are a winner, as is the raw tuna and onion sushi. Just stay clear of the sushi that’s unidentifiable under the copious amounts of mayo.

    I have to disagree, Sushi Yachiyo has to be the best sushi in Sydney. Yummmmm!
