Hack: Grab yourself a bento box
If we pocketed a dollar for every person who says Sydney is expensive, we’d be drinking on our very own, private, harbourfront deck. But if you want to dine out without selling your left kidney, we suggest going for one of the three bento boxes on offer, ranging from $40 to $69.50, that are generous enough to stretch between two diners. The ‘Sidney’ box includes a teriyaki salmon or chicken option. But if you want the full Nobu experience in one go, order the ‘classic’. It comes with the black cod miso and the seared tuna sashimi on salad leaves and shavings of radish and beetroot. There are little nigiri and cut sushi rolls of the chef's selection, and a vegetable stirfry on rice. They've even got a vegetarian option.
