    Food is average, price is higher, only 2 staff so long waiting time for food, not worth it.

    We came here several years ago and it was a reasonably nice meal. This time the wait for the food was very long. The service was OK but no-one really apologized for the wait. The robata grilled mushrooms were OK. The Hokkaido scallops were drowned in a lot of mushroom sauce. The braised pork belly was absolutely terrible - tasted like it had been reheated several times and also tasted wrong. Not coming back

    The food tastes amazing. Fully over our expectations, you can definitely order everything from the menu randomly and never be disappointed . We will visit again

    Would suit date or friend group, not so family friendly when you want to be in and out within an hour as the wait times were a bit long and we had to wait a long time to order. Carpaccio and tartare dishes were good, Heard amazing things about the cigars but was disappointed as they were 60% raw onion, and it overpowered the fish. Nobody wanted to eat it. Pork belly was also disappointing and quite tasteless. Ice cream is particularly overpriced for a very small single scoop of green tea ice cream at $10.

    Really good neighbourhood Japanese. Chef has a lovely presence and the big hello when you walk through the door from the kitchen staff can’t be beaten.

    Food was excellent, all dishes we had were of very high quality in both content and presentation. Prawn tempura is a common dish, but often not cooked well - this was the best I’ve had in Sydney, 6 pieces, really crisp but not overcomes batter which didn’t fall off, delicious chunky prawns. Spider roll also delicious. Ambience could have been better however - room was cold, air con blasting. And music choice seemed odd for Japanese restaurant - jazz with screeching trumpet solos, not very relaxing! But would go back for food.

    Nice small neighbourhood restaurant, nothing fancy. The food was lovely but small in quantity and pricey. If we had not had the discount it would have been an expensive dinner. The staff seemed rushed and stressed.. No time was given between dishes and I feel they wanted a very quick turn over. Nice food but we probably won't return.

    Delicious food, great for the price we paid especially with the Fork deal. The dishes look fancy but the restaurant itself is quite casual

    Love coming back to this restaurant, I think they might have new owners, but the food was delicious, tasty and presented well. Will definitely go back. If in the area please try their "TUNA" dishes - superb!

    RK San is such a amazing restaurant - the quality of the sushi and dishes matches some of Sydneys top restuarants. Try the Tuna Ciger, Popcorn Shrimp and Sashimi Selection

    I really liked the sashimi and sashimi cigar dishes here. The rest of the food was just average. Service was decent but not as attentive as there was only one server for the whole restaurant. The ambiance of the restaurant could be better.

This beautiful Surry Hills venue serves delicate Japanese flavours with flare and flourish, and it's one of our fave spots to dine.
