Matsusaka Backstreet is a hidden gem in Haymarket that serves some seriously good Japanese food. Predominantly a yakiniku restaurant, this Sydney spot will be well on your radar once you’ve tried their exceptional BBQ meats. The vibe here is similar to the izakayas found in Japan, which means casual atmosphere, friendly service and satisfying food. The wagyu and Australian beef cooked up by the chefs is top-notch, while the array of side plates including ramen soups and noodle bowls are also worthy of special attention. Tucked away where Hay Street and Harbour Street meet, you can find Matsusaka Backstreet and its cosy dining space up a flight of stairs. Keep an eye out for the sign!
