The Verdict

After a career that has spanned decades and continents, chef Yusuke Morita opened Kisuke in Potts Point in 2020. An intimate dining experience, to say the least, the tiny restaurant tucked down Llankelly Place seats a mere six guests at once.

Dishing up an omakase menu, which roughly translates to “I’ll leave it up to you”, chef Morita takes centre stage, crafting delicate soups, fresh sashimi, delectable noodles, grilled delights and moreish sushi right before your eyes with the utmost precision. It’s easy to feel like you’ve been transported to a pocket-sized omakase restaurant in Tokyo with the paired back and calming wooden interior.

Bookings are essential at this bite-sized Japanese joint, and spaces have been known to book out for more than a month in advance, so definitely plan ahead. Joined by his wife in the open-plan kitchen, Kisuke is a passion project for chef Morita, who originally hailed from ​​Kochi Prefecture in Japan, before cheffing around Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, and then finally settling in Sydney in 1994. His passion for Japanese cuisine is evident in the dishes he plates up, as well as the quality of ingredients he hand-selects. The Kisuke experience lasts a few hours and will set you back $200 per person, but it’s well worth it.
