Sashimi, hot food and Japanese cuisine at Sushi Train Mini Stop Waterloo

Life at university isn’t always easy, especially during exam time. Many of the residents of Sydney’s inner-south suburb of Waterloo would know, being students themselves. Waterloo is a suburb almost at the mid-point between two major universities, USyd (in Redfern) and UNSW (in Kensington).

When you’re burning the midnight oil for that assignment or exam, it’s important that you’re drawing from a healthy source. That’s why the university population will appreciate knowing that a new Japanese restaurant is open, by the name of Sushi Train Mini Stop Waterloo.

Located in the same precinct as Sydney City Toyota Waterloo.

The Mini Stop is a smaller version of the Sushi Train brand of conveyor belt restaurant.

Healthier takeaway for young professionals and university students

Sushi Train Mini Stop Waterloo is the second culinary venture of Hideki Konno, who opened his first Japanese restaurant in the eastern suburb of Maroubra. The Mini Stop continues the footprint of the nationally recognised Sushi Train brand, in a friendly and convenient way.

The difference with Mini Stop Waterloo is that sushi and sashimi are made-to-order instead of placed on a conveyor belt. Workers on their lunch break can enjoy a Salmon & Avocado Salad. Instead of typical fast food, university students can consider takeaway that will nurture their body more. How about a lunch featuring a Chicken & Cucumber Roll and Mixed Sashimi Platter?  

You can also order hot Japanese favourites like Wagyu Beef Curry & Rice, Chashu Ramen, and Chicken Katsu Udon

Takeaway meals are available through Uber Eats, Menulog and DoorDash.

I appreciated the convenient location of this Sushi Train Mini Stop. It’s in the same lifestyle precinct where Sydney City Lexus, Suksabai Thai Massage and Shangke Asian Supermarket are located. The bus stop for a 15-minute ride into Sydney CBD is located a few minutes’ walk away, on Bourke St.
