Yoshii’s elegantly designed restaurant is one of the most
modern stylish eateries in the Rocks.
The initiative was for the restaurant to create simple and elegant style
with traditional Japanese ambiance.
The restaurant features an open kitchen fronted by a sushi bar. The
sushi bar can seat a party of eight people with a clear view of the
chef performing the fine art of sushi making.
The restaurant also includes a round-tabled private function room with
inbuilt plasma TV screen.Along with the main rooms the restaurant have
40 seats in total.
There is also a sophisticated cool room for the vast variety of wines
available. A series of Japanese hand made clay dishware and tea ware
are also on display in the glass cabinet, all delicately hand drawn
and designed by Mitsuo Shouji and Lex Dickson, who are both well-known
ceramic artists in Sydney.
The exterior of the restaurant is decorated with dark bamboo shoots
near the entrance. Clean-cut strips of fine timber are placed horizontally
on the window outside of the restaurant creating the effect of a see-through
blind. The interior is decorated in soothing charcoal ash-gray, with
a few vibrant walls to contrast.
The strips of timber is also used vertically to divide the sushi-bar
and the main dinning room creating dynamic spaces allowing the customer
to have some privacy in the main dining room while also having the option
of a few glimpses of the master chef at work.
The polished dark timber floor, black marble sushi bench and Spanish
leather chairs within the restaurant creates a sophisticated atmosphere
and an ideal venue for all occasions such as business lunch functions
while also perfect for an intimate dinner for two.
