If you are tired of the Irish stews, shepherds pie and fish&chips and don't want to resort to pizza, try this nice Japanese restaurant with a wide selection of fairly authentic meals.

It was our first time here, a spontaneous visit. We were greeted very kindly by the staff and shown to our table. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing. I had the Deluxe Combo - which was presented in a very unexpectedly way, which I loved!! The food was delicious, but the ika nagiri (squid) was very hard to swallow (had... More

Fast service. Daily bento box special was a great deal and tasty. Dining partner loved the two rolls she ordered. Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed!

I normally evaluate a japanese restaurant for sushi, sashimi and rolls, that are the dishes where fish freshness and quality and creativity and talent of the chef are most important. From this point of view Banyi is surely the best I have tried in Dublin, although not a top-level one. Anyway, it can surely be recommended. The Uramaki sushi rolls... More

Given Banyi's proximity to the Temple Bar area, we figured it might be a tourist trap. But it looked nice, and the combo for early dinner was a good price, and my husband was tired of traditional Irish food, so we gave it a try. It was very good! Nice service too. Very good choice for the area.

We had lunch here one day in July. I told the waiter that I was gluten intolerant and got excellent help in choosing my food. Good taste, nice setting, relaxed calm atmosphere. Very good indeed.

Maybe we were unlucky but the sushi was old. We tried several but ebi tempura was not good and the dragon sushi also not. The andemame was not cooked properly, so a horrible experience.
