Aussies love Japanese food, and really that should come as no surprise. Healthy, hearty, fresh and heavy on the seafood, Japanese dining has plenty to offer locals to Aus. At Kagura Japanese Restaurant, locals to Surry Hills can indulge in great Japanese food in a chilled cafe-style environment. Bringing together excellent food, chic dining and a perfect spot for Sydney’s über-cool hipsters to photograph their dinner, this local treasure in Foveaux Street is a great spot for food, drinks and hanging out with pals.
It was great food. Great ppl. Yummy delicious ok service
Worst experience ever. The boss refused our request on the 4-sofa seat as we only have 2 people, but offers 2 local customers seat there who came after us (wonder if it's just because we are Asian). When we sat down, the waitress kindly gave us an additional chair to put the bags, but the boss aggressively asked us to return to its original position as the seats are 'fully booked' (though nobody seats there the whole night). He though we took the chair by ourselves, but after being told by the waitress that the chair was actually placed by her, neither he or anyone else in the restarant apologize to us. The beer we ordered was split by waitress about 1/3 but not replaced to a new can. Nobody even gave us a smile during the whole service. Food is not fresh, and there's no air conditioning in summer! Will not come again.

When you hear Japanese food, there’s a tendency to immediately think of sushi. And while there are plenty of popular sushi places in Surry Hills, this Foveaux Street cafe is choosing to forge a different path. Sydney’s Kagura Japanese Restaurant offers a selection of Japanese curries, complex and light barbecued skewers and a handful of other seafood dishes. Surry Hills is a bubbling hive of the young and restless, and this laidback cafe offers a chance to indulge in great food in the city.
While Kagura Japanese Restaurant is ostensibly a cafe, there’s more than a handful of influences from fine dining on display here too. The kitchen’s Japanese cuisine is seriously ambitious, as demonstrated by the beautifully plates of food served here consistently. For fresh seafood, locals to Foveaux Street are spoiled for choice, but Kagura Japanese Restaurant is a great option in Surry Hills, with fresh, line caught fish and shellfish in abundance, as well as the big flavours from the far east. Sydney’s young and trendy favour Kagura Japanese Restaurant for its great fine-dining food and its laidback vibe, and it's easy to see why. Join the team at Kagura Japanese Restaurant Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.
