Food is ok, not the best. Not sure what the fuss is about. Very pricey compared to other Japanese restaurants. Service is good. But I'd still stick to my usual visits to Yamamori or Zakura.

Really good food for a broad palette, if you are a fan of Japanese cuisine. Staff are extremely helpful and genuine. Have had two meals there so far and will be back again!

I was there last Tuesday February 14th. The reason I chose the restaurant was it is ranked as the best Sushi in Dublin, and the food was the only reason I am not rating as Terrible. So, the list: - They have time to request the table (Ok, it was previously informed); - On arrival they were confused and in... More

I had a dinner at the Banyi restaurant and it was great, tuna and avocado tartar for the first course was superb, and a sushi combination of nigiri, sashimi and rols was very good. Together with sake, it was a very good dinner.

Visited the restaurant with a groupon deal. The food was fantastic, and the staff attentive and friendly. You get plenty of food for a very good price. The wine was a little expensive, but we did not mind too much with the quality of food and service, particularly on the groupon deal. A very enjoyable night of sushi in Dublin.... More

Food is not authentically Japanese but it is probably the best place in the center of Dublin to eat "Japanese" Service is excellent and management very attentive. Food is served fast as size of restaurant needs table turnover Good effort in sushi, a pity they put mayonnaise in many sushi dishes and therefore the " sushi " cannot be tasted.... More
