Tasted by / January 5, 2012

Summer is finally here in Sydney, and with all that greasy BBQ food over the holiday season, what would be better than japanese cuisine with a stunning view of the Sydney Opera house to start the new year.

Located on quayside, you’ll find a modern japanese restaurant called Oceanroom. Doesn’t sound Japanese but once have their dishes, “oishi” is all you can say. One of the most memorial dishes, would be the Tuna creation. Five different ways of cooking tuna with five different condiment. I wish, I could have more.

Make sure that when you make reservations that your table is at the window as well as making sure a P&O cruise isn’t covering your view.

    How did you find the tasting menu? I went about 2 weeks after you and it was significantly different (review coming soon :) ) I was quite disappointed to be honest :( Hope you enjoyed yours much more!

    Hi Stephen, just saw your review, you’re right! it was different. Yours look more interesting. My tasting menu was average, I enjoyed the first few dishes though, especially the sake jelly bar cod. I guess you’re paying for the view rather than the food :D

  • I have always wanted to come here to try their Tuna Creation! It looks so good!
