As seen on:

We had such a good day last weekend. You guys were right on time, set up with my brother really well, which we appreciated.

The food was really really tasty, beautifully presented, perfect for our wedding. We both took time to enjoy the food and all of our guests loved every dish that came out!

A few highlights, the scallop, the miso eggplant, the burger! the gyoza, the chicken Yakitori and the desserts both so delicious. Everyone really had such a good time sitting over the water enjoying such an interesting collection of dishes and flavours! So a huge thank you from us. We will definitely recommend you to others.

Sydney's first Japanese Food Truck. Serving up fresh yakitori and hand-made gyoza all over Sydney.

The Truck:
Shiso Fine is the first Japanese Food Truck to join the City of Sydney brigade of diverse street vending options serving Modern Japanese Street Food with a twist.

The Food:
Handmade Pork & Garlic Chive gyoza (pan-fried Japanese dumplings) are our speciality but we also offer a vegetarian/vegan gyoza with tofu & mixed asian vegetables. All gyoza are served with our house-made gyoza sauce. The gyoza are cooked in the traditional method of pan frying and then steaming to achieve the consistency of a soft, juicy dumpling with a crispy base.

Other options include chicken yakitori (grilled chicken with a tare glaze) served as a unique chicken yakitori roll with ginger wasabi mayo served on a fresh baked baguette or in a salad with our signature Tokyo Slaw. All yakitori are grilled on a lava rock char grill similar to that of a traditional charcoal robata grill and brushed with a homemade tare sauce. 

Shiso Fine also offers apple crumble dessert gyoza with cinnamon sugar, walnut crumble & ice cream, Matcha frappe's & cold drinks.

The Name:
A play on words, Shiso (Japanese: 紫蘇 or シソ) is the more widely used name of the Asian culinary herb Perilla frutescens, belonging to the mint family. In short, it's a delicious and fresh herb often described as being a cross between basil & mint. And thus, "She's so fine" becomes Shiso Fine.

Shiso Fine is available for private bookings and large events. In the past we have catered for charity events, weddings, engagements, corporate Christmas parties, sale events, food truck festivals, birthdays, university ball's & gala's and many private parties. Please contact us for a quote.

Thank you so much for everything! Everybody raved about the food! I actually had a lot of people telling me how good the eggplant was!
I’m so appreciative of everything you did for us. Your staff were all lovely as well.
You made all the planning easy and I would book you again in a heartbeat.
I hope we see you again soon!
