One of my favourite places for a quick bite of quality lunchtime sushi is the Kenzan outpost in the GPO building. I work near the posh main Kenzan restaurant, but don’t generally have the time or the cash to pop in for a quick $35 bento. Instead I prefer heading to Kenzan @ GPO, which is not the cheapest Japanese lunch option in the city, but the quality ingredients are worth it.
It specialises in high-quality sushi rolls with interesting ingredients. All of the nori rolls are roll your own, which ensures that the nori is pleasantly crisp and much tastier than pre-rolled nori. The sushi rolls range from $3.50-$5.

Their sashimi (around $15 for a small serve) is also super fresh and perfectly prepared. The noodle options are also a good choice for something more substantial.
