The Best Omakase in Sydney for a Memorable Dining Experience

For a truly one-of-a-kind dining experience, look no further than Sydney's best omakase.

Bay Nine Omakase

Omakase, loosely translated to "I'll leave it up to you", is a Japanese fine dining experience that takes full advantage of the skill, passion and craftsmanship of the chef and restaurant. With a set price, many small courses, and limited availability, this is the type of meal where the chef has full creative freedom and diners get to observe these culinary artists at work. If you love fine dining and Japanese cuisine, this is an experience not to be missed. 

Omakase is growing in popularity and with dedicated restaurants popping up all over the city there's never been a better time to get involved. You'll even find Korean omakase and Cantonese omakase making it's way onto the scene. Read on for the best omakase experiences in Sydney.
