His parents christened him Nobuyuki Ura but to sushi e aficionados, he’s simply the all-seeing Ura-san. Wielding his knife with extraordinary dexterity from behind the white marble sushi bar, the keen surfer loves his front-row view of satisfied diners. That, he says, is his definition of instant gratification.
Nobuyuki Ura commenced his career in Tokyo in 1982 at Meguro Gajoen. After moving to Sydney in 1989 to chase the surf, Ura-san joined Merivale in 2006 and quickly took sushi e to a whole new level of quality and sophistication.
Plating genuine Japanese cuisine using only the freshest and finest seafood, Nobuyuki has created a bustling, upbeat and faithful dining experience right in the heart of Sydney. Dining at sushi e is a highly interactive experience – those with an adventurous streak simply let the talented chefs choose their high-art meal for them while others order favourite dishes from the menu. However you choose to eat, the meal always comes with a little conversation on the side.
