We visited Banyi again last night. It was amazing. We had a combination of sushi and hot food. The sushi was delicious and so fresh. For hot food, we had fillet of beef and halibut in a fish soup. Both were lovely, especially the halibut which was awesome. Great service from the very friendly team at Banyi. Don't miss this... More

Good authentic Japanese food and a nice atmosphere. The service was good even though they were busy. We had the 'Bento box' which was a good variety of different dishes and a reasonable price. Would recommend.

Dining at this restaurant was such a pleasure and a real highlight of our weekend in Dublin. We opted for the 3 course set menu and for the price it is amazing value for money. The portions were large and food was great, little touches including the free soya beans to start and free miso soup between courses made it... More

Banyi uses top quality and the freshest of ingredients which makes really good food. Amazing sushi. Try the Dragon and Fuji volcano Maki, my favourite. Super nice staff and unrivalled desire to meet every need of the customer. Great coffee also!! Very cosy atmosphere.

Excellent visit and highly recommended. Food and service were both very good. The rolls were amazing. Food was very fresh and the restaurant although small was quite intimate you were sat close to others but still maintained a private conversation.

We had Sushi and Goyza to start which was gorgeous but our mains of Duck (overcooked) and Katsu curry were average with what looked and tasted like bottled sauces. Noticed some asian diners which I thought is a good sign and the atmosphere is convivial and very pleasant - especially unusual for Temple Bar. Prices not bad either. Staff were... More

Food was fresh, original, excellent. The place was nicely decorated and cosy. Service very friendly. One of the best Japanese food I've had outside of Japan. Definitely not a place to go during a diet though! :-)

We had a really small table (former sewer table), and the place was quite busy. The service was very friendly. The Banyi Platter for two was just great - excellent fish, very tasty. The desert was the best I ever had in a Japanese style restaurant. Try the black berry soufflé!

2nd time at the restaurant and, if possible, even happier than the first time. We can't recommend this restaurant enough. Super nice staff, fast service and incredible food. 4 course tasting menu with cocktail and coffee for €45 for 2 people..

Came to Dublin for a couple of nights. Tried this sushi place. The decor of food was cool, taste good. We have ordered spider rolls, Tokyo ramen. Both wee good. The calamari has less of the Japanese taste. It came with tartar sauce instead of teriyaki or tonkatsu sauce. Overall it's a good experience.
