Myself and my boyfriend wanted something light to eat so we shared the katsu bento box, absolutely delicious, excellent service - very quick. I also had a lychee mojito was one of the nicest drinks I’ve ever had!
On a busy Friday night before Christmas, the staff were attentive and the service outstanding. The sushi was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. We also enjoyed the seafood Ramen Bowl! We highly recommend Banyi and will certainly be back.
We have tried 8 different Japanese restaurants in the city centre over the past 2 years, and Banyi is just the best, hands down. The fish - particularly noticeable with the sashimi - is fresher and more flavoursome than the others, and they offer more...interesting combinations of ingredients in their rolls. While we have been ordering for home delivery recently due to covid-19, the in-restaurant dining experience which we had there earlier this year was also second-to-none.
That said, it is - like all Sushi in Ireland - prepared for the western palate, so if you are a sushi aficionado just be warned that it's not going to be up there with the best you've ever eaten in Japan, but when choosing between Japanese restaurants in Dublin, Banyi gets my vote every time.More
Went here on a pigspacks voucher on Friday prosecco tasteless and food was meagre so many little fruit flies as well won't be going back. I was in the banyi in Abbey St and it was superb perhaps this has changed ownership
The food was just ok. It’s our first visit. I had daily special kimchi seafood udon. Udon seems just out of the packages and the broth is very heavy. The prawn was good but the kimchi took over the tastes from the udon to the...soup. And it was also my first time to force myself to finish the noodles in a restaurant 😂. Dunes even have better quality udon noodles than here . I’m a ramen lover, this broth is also hard to describe, tastes like a kimchi sauce mixed with salt water and light soya sauce. Based on all of this above,I felt that dish was over priced.However the staff was friendly. My boyfriend had a seafood teriyaki, and it’s ok on average. until I had the Matcha Fondant with red bean ice cream. This dessert saved my dinner.this warm green tea lava cake going very well with the red bean ice cream. The green tea creme brûlée was just ok.my boyfriend felt the food only on average.for me The price was a bit high but understandable by its location. Maybe we didn’t find the right dishes from the menu. However,still give it an average. The dessert really saved a star for this place. Hope the chef will improve sth with the broth. I will drink a lot of water tonight after having the soggy noodles...just because I didn’t want to waste the food and ruin our date...More
The sticky and dirty floor should have been a warning sign. The sushi I ordered was horrible, the rice was old and sour and fish was smelly. I was on a date so I ate it and had food poisoning. The sushi was literally the...worst I ever had. This restaurant needs to be inspected by a restaurant health organization.More
