Two in one dining experience
Keeping to the Japanese tradition of restaurants specialising in one particular dish, jugemu specialises in teppanyaki and shimbashi in hand-made soba. There are two separate entrances leading to either the vibrant modern space of jugemu or the calm traditional atmosphere of shimbashi. Whichever side you dine in, you can order from both menus.
We have a solid wine list, a unique sake & shochu selection and offer both local and Japanese beer with Orion(a popular Okinawan brand) available on tap.
Jugemu specialises in teppanyaki (hot plate grilling), and more specifically, Osaka-style okonomiyaki.
Okonomiyaki is a savoury pancake with shredded cabbage, topped with pork, beef , or seafood and a sweet worstershire based sauce.
There are 2 types of seating - normal tables and counter seating around the hot plate, but please don't expect us to throw the food, we want every morsel in your tummy not on the floor!
Shimbashi is all about soba. Hand-made buckwheat noodles are made fresh every day using organic buckwheat from Tasmania which is milled fresh with each batch. Soba is the essence of Japan in a bowl - so simple, yet has great depth and complexity.
The Shimbashi kitchen also handles Japanese classics such as tempura, sushi and sashimi, each prepared by our specialist chefs using the freshest sourced Australian produce. There are 2 types of seating in shimbashi - normal tables and traditional sunken tables where shoes must be taken off.
"The first reason is because the food served here is of the highest standard. The menu changes regularly and always features traditional Japanese dishes that I have not seen served in other restaurants in Sydney. To explore the menu here is pure delight.
The main reason that I enjoy this restaurant so much is the utter professionalism shown by the staff. Informal yes, but behind that exterior is a steely resolve to quiet frankly present the very best dining experience to its patrons. I will continue to return to the Ju Ge Mu as often I as can.
Choice of Okonomi-yaki Sauce or Spicy Soy-Mayo with Cheese
It is nice to add some extra toppings for your pancake to enhance the flavour.
* Any request to customise your sashimi/sushi is more than welcome!!
* All buckwheat noodles are freshly hand-made but udon noodles are not.
"Shimbashi is simply my favourite restaurant in Sydney. I am an aficionado of several of Sydney’s top Japanese restaurants, but the culinary artistry of Shimbashi and the excellent staff service are unbeatable. I visit Japan every year and have visited many of the leading restaurants in Tokyo and Osaka including Jiro in Roppongi but to me, Shimbashi is equal to any restaurant I have been to in Japan. I love the sushi – the best in town – and the asparagus in pork belly, or the soba dips, but the teppan-yaki is also just excellent!
- Check it out!"
"I drive 2hours to have SOBA lunch on my day off everyweek.
Yes, it is worth it!!"
"This is just my most favourite Japanese restaurant on the north shore. Every time I visit (which is almost once a week) I have a fabulous meal and wonderful service."
"Great food and service. I love the Okonomi-yaki."
*No lunch on Thursdays
*NO B.Y.O. FRI & SAT
We look forward to serving you...
