I first went to Bian sushi about a year ago and it was amazing but since then it's deteriorated quite a bit. The sushi is left out for hours unchilled and the restaurant is a hotbed of flies. I still like coming here from time to time but if I were to think of "best sushi in Auckland", this doesn't... More

One of the best sushi I had in Auckland. The sushi is fresh, tasty and original. We took a 30-pieces party platter and it was definitely worth it.

Used to be a regular here when i worked nearby but came back today after many years. Was very disappointed with my sushi which cost $9.80 and had very little filling. It felt like eating plain rice flavoured with soya sauce and wasabi. Guess this is one place I wont miss not being able to go to for lunch anymore.

I love going there with my family. The restaurant is small, but has a friendly atmosphere of a simple diner. Food is delicious and on a fair price.

Always really impressed when visiting Bian. There is always an excellent selection of fresh sushi and is very good value. Free pickle and sauces is also a bonus.

I'm a bit reluctant to write this review only because I want to keep this little place all to myself! We are there at least once a week so have a reliable opinion of the place. The selection is outstanding and really fresh. Excellent sushi rolls, sashimi, miso, seaweed salad and hot food menu. It is only a small little... More
