Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a nice lunch here. Some good lunch deals - under €10 for a Katsu pork main. Sushi pieces all good value. Friendly service. Despite it being just off Temple Bar, a recommended spot.

Enjoyed the aburi plater which is a combination of sashimi, nigiri , and a roll with seared tuna, salmon, and sea bass. The seared fish added a good flavor to the sushi. I don’t think the quality of fish is quite what we are used...to but overall it was good.More

The service here is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Portions are fair. We liked the sushi but found the bowls lacking flavor.

A large selection of options for my vegan daughter, not penalizing her meat-eating parents. The food itself was good, and the restaurant well situated. Staff attentive and willing to explain the menu to us. Few desserts available. Comforting overall.

Traditional quality sushi with welcoming staff. We spent an evening during January 2022 when the restaurant was still closing at 8.00pm. We have been warmly welcomed and the food was really good. Be careful with the size of the sushi, the "big" ones are really...big but delicious. I would definitely recommend to stop by if you love sushi.More

Fell upon this place while researching for the annual Christmas trip to soak up the festive atmosphere in Dublin. Great review led me here abs we were not disappointed - the service was exceptional, friendly and fun, and the food was honest and beautifully executed....Great options for the vegetarian as well as the main gang and speedy enough to pick off a few extras that you wanted more if as the meal went on. Definitely one for the repeat visit.More

We booked a table a month ahead as we were going to celebrate the birthday of one of us. Were very surprised to be told there were only table outside. This apparently because we didn't specify we would sit indoor. Comming from Norway on our...first visit to Dublin who would know there were outdoor option in November? I also had quite few e-mail communication with Banyi regarding booking. Nothing was mentioned about in/out door seating. So our special occation was a bit ruined by the 'welcome'. Food was good and service ok.More
