Tucked along Cleveland St in Surry Hills, Sushi Suma has always been popular among locals for their reasonably priced well-portioned fresh Japanese food. I guess you can tell when a restaurant is authentic or not, by seeing Japanese patrons eating at a Japanese restaurant or Italians at an Italian restaurant etc., and Sushi Suma has always been packed full with Japanese patrons so I'll take that as a good sign :)

While the portion sizes have significantly reduced over the years, the agedashi tofu is still silky smooth and deep-fried to a delicious golden crispiness.
As part of the dinner combination meals (around $20-25 each person), we chose to have the sushi + tempura and the sashimi + teriyaki beef sets. Both the assorted sushi and sashimi were generous in portions, and included fresh and fat slices of sashimi.
|Assorted sashimi (salmon, tuna, kingfish)|
|Assorted tempura (prawn, pumpkin, capsicum)|
Good portion of crispy fried hot tempura pieces of prawns, pumpkin and capsicum - served with a mild tasting dipping sauce.
A mountainload of shredded cabbage pieces and well-marinated tender beef slices - the fatty juices of the beef was well mixed into the teriyaki sauce, which made the plain shredded cabbage pieces incredibly tasty.
