SUSHI BAY, Wollongong

Building 1, Ground Level, Wollongong Central
Keira St, Wollongong 2500 NSW

The  experience with the conveyor belt that the kids just love! With a continuous stream of freshly prepared dishes drifting past on a revolving conveyor belt, Sushi Bay provides a fun atmosphere. Plates are colour coded according to their price, so you can keep tabs on what you’re spending , but be warned, it’s easy to rack up a hefty bill when you’re continually enticed by the exciting combinations drifting past you!

Nothing taking your fancy? There’s always a full menu to order from if you prefer. (Please note that due to Covid Safe restrictions, the conveyor belt may not be operating, so check before you book to know what to expect)

Japanese Bento House, Wollongong

Wollongong 2500 NSW

The original and still one of the best! Bento has been a fixture in Wollongong for over 20 years. It’s more of a takeaway than a dine-in experience due its’ tiny space, but if you can score a table, you’ll be rewarded with the friendly staff and might just score a complimentary entree.

Hot Tip: Try the Vegetable pancake!

The Avenue, Figtree 2525 NSW

This unassuming little sushi shop, located just outside Coles is a reliable and convenient staple for many local households! Grab an easy lunchbox filler or hassle free dinner for the whole family.

Try the seasoned, grilled salmon box. It’s charred finish with the blowtorch is sensational.
