Cuisine: Asian, Fusion, Japanese
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Sink into one of Pegasushi’s comfy chairs and prepare yourself for an epic Japanese feast.

Asahi beer is on tap and authentic, flavoursome dishes are plentiful. Though it’s known for its excellent sushi and sashimi, Pegasushi also has a huge range of other traditional Japanese dishes on its menu. Start with salted soy beans and miso soup, then share whole fish tempura, twice-cooked pork belly and Japanese style beef steak with friends. Enjoy a selection of noodle dishes, donburi and teriyaki before tucking into sumptuous sweets like dorayaki, red bean on ice or deep-fried banana!

If you find it tricky to pick favourites from Pegasushi’s long list of fresh and tasty dishes, ask for the Chef’s Choice menu or order the nine-course signature special to experience a culinary trip through Japan.

A great selection of Japanese beers, sake, wines and spirits are on offer to accompany your meal.

Food is good here, but they don’t cater for kids, don’t do kids size portion, when I asked I was told yes we could make smaller but you have to pay full price I asked if they could do something simple like teriyaki chicken as I knew a child would defiantly eat it but because it was on lunch menu they wouldn’t do 50% off so felt staff don’t really aim to please unfortunately we will not return because of this. I suggest if you have children try somewhere else. Simple remedy put a small sushi roll or teriyaki chicken on menu for kids.

The food was fabulous. The Sashimi was very fresh and flavoursome. The soft crab bao was very nice, not at all gluggy in texture. The twice cooked pork was melt in the mouth yummy. Waitress was attentive. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back.
Thank you

As we have discovered previously the food and its presentation were first class. Wonderful variety of menu. Recommend Pegasushi to anyone who likes more than meat and three veg.

This was our first visit and we arranged to meet friends here. The restaurant is very well designed, plenty of room and light. The seats were very comfortable, lol we all commented on that and the staff uniform is very fitting for a Japanese restaurant. We couldn't fault the food, we shared entrees and a couple of mains. We would have preferred the pork belly slightly more cooked, but it was still very tasty and the dumplings would have been the best I have ever had. The staff were lovely. Would highly recommend and we will return

We had a great experience food was delicious! We found the mains small but didn’t mind on this occasion as we had eaten way too much by then anyway.
The Tuna and Steak tataki were our fave. Will definitely be back, thanks guys.

We went out on Thursday night for a birthday dinner.

Everything about our experience was wonderful.

It is always hard to choose what to eat as everything on the menu looks delicious.

Overall we could not find any faults.

Thank you also to the waitress who transformed the chop sticks so our little 5 year old could effectively use. Is amazing what a rubber band and piece of paper can do.

Entree, mains and desserts were perfect.

Thanks to everyone who made our night special!!

We have dined at Pegasushi a few times recently and the food is delicious.
The Kardashian Bun, The fried Chicken, dumplings, pork and teppan veges really are our favourites. We try to try something new each time.
It is kid friendly. We have taken our almost 2 year old with us (we take his own food and they are happy with this). They have a high chair available as well.

The whole evening was spectacular.

The service was amazing, meals delicious and atmosphere five star.

We ordered the pickled vegetables, crumbed chicken, tempura and steak.
My partner has an abundance of dietary requirements and was great that the waitress and chef could help.

More people should make the visit to Pegasushi and you won't be disappointed.

Can't wait to going back soon

Great dining experience at Pegasushi! Staff were incredibly helpful and attentive, quick service and minimal waiting time. Food was well presented and tasted amazing. Mains were a little on the smaller size for the price, but taste more than made up for it. Would definitely recommend.

Very lovely dining experience with a few mates. Sashimi platter was excellent,as well as all the entree we had. The waitress was super friendly as well.
Unfortunately we felt that the fried soft shell crab was perhaps not as fresh as it should,as there was a bit of a smell to it (compared to a fresh dish).
I would definitely come again
