“Great for lunch with colleagues”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

I had lunch with friends who work locally like me at Bien and food was great value. Self serve sushi is best if you are in a hurry as my cooked choice did take a bit longer. Get there early for lunch as it does fill up fast.

“My Regular Sushi Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Really fresh (obviously!), great sushi rice (and many places can't do this fundamental well), excellent relatively traditional range of fillings/topings/combinations (don't expect rainbow rolls etc), at reasonable prices. They also do a range of domburi, but I always go for the sushi, so can't comment on these. Very popular with the lunchtime office crowds.
