Nestled away in the affluent suburb of Elizabeth Bay lies a Japanese culinary delight. Kujin Japanese Cuisine is an izakaya teppanyaki inspired restaurant offering a creative and enticing menu selection that will send your imagination into overdrive. With a range of tapas, fresh sashimi sourced daily from the Sydney fish markets, okonomiyaki cabbage pancakes and some seriously tasty homemade udon noodle dishes, we guarantee you’ll leave on cloud nine. You can find Kujin Japanese Cuisine on Elizabeth Bay Road and we do recommend you book in advance as this Sydney gem does tend to fill up quickly.
Izakaya is a form of Japanese dining likened to gastropub cuisine, while teppanyaki uses an iron griddle to cook dishes, also being a kind of creative entertainment. Sydney local restaurant Kujin Japanese Cuisine is a blend of these two forms of Japanese dining and is going from strength to strength, with locals simply loving the creativity and innovation this Elizabeth Bay eatery has developed. With a modern and chic dining space with low lighting and cosy atmosphere, Kujin has ticked all the setting boxes. Which takes us to the star of the show – the menu.
Sourced from the famous Sydney fish markets daily, the sashimi at Kujin is fresh and authentic ranging from kingfish carpaccio to tuna tataki. We recommend selecting a number of tapas dishes to share, like their spicy edamame, karaage chicken and agedashi tofu, as well as some salmon and shiitake skewers. If teppanyaki is your game, the impressive chefs can whip up the roll wagyu beef, teriyaki chicken and tofu steak, complete with artisan skills and showmanship. Whatever your choice, rest assured you’re in for a treat at Kujin Japanese Cuisine. You can find this hotspot along Elizabeth Bay Road in Elizabeth Bay, a short distance from Kings Cross – just be sure to book ahead.
Food was great and service very attentive. We sat at the bar and watched the chef perform his magic. Would definitely recommend to eat there.
Great feed Staff friendly Would recommend to anyone. Teriyaki Salmon the Mickey Mouse 9 outta 10 Great range of sake’s as well Top notch and reasonably priced
Polite and efficient service. Delicious food. Were going to the Hayes Theatre. Perfect dinner location. Enjoyed our night out in Potts Point. Would certainly go again.
Kujin is a wonderful Japanese restaurant which serves the freshest Sushi and Sashimi, or delicious menu options from the Teppanyaki Grill. Great service too from an experienced team.
We always enjoy our nights at Kujin. Even with all the festive silliness about at this time of year they manage to be warm and dignified and maintain the freshness and delectability of their sashimi. Thanks Kujin.
This was our first time at Kujin. Very friendly fast service. Food was fresh and well prepared not to mention delicious. We enjoyed our experience and would definitely go again.
Kujin was excellent. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. The food was great and the atmosphere pleasant. All in all a very good experience.
Food excellent, service poor! Great food but our night was let down by some poor service. The bottled water arrived opened at the table and once the bill was presented and we had divied up the bill to pay they decided they had forgotten something (a small charge for corkage). Which meant we needed to do the whole process of dividing up the bill again. No apology and not handled well by the staff
This is a lovely restaurant, one of our favourites. The sashimi is always magnificent and the service is warm and unassuming. Thanks Kujin for a great night.
Couldn't fault this restaurant, staff were lovely and food was so yum and reasonably priced. Perfect that it was also BYO!! Defiantly recommend sitting by the chefs to watch all the cooking. We would definitely return :)
