I was working near this part of town and was actually headed to a different restaurant. They were closed so I took a chance on Bian. Service was quick and easy. Staff were very busy with the late lunch customers. I did not try the...More

average sushi - it's all very fresh and there are lots of choices, but my expectations were raise by the "best sushi" award they'd won a while ago and then my lunch wasn't as good as I'd hoped.

Fresh tasty sushi is on offer every day at Bian Sushi & Donburi. Wide range of options, including tuna, salmon, prawn, chicken etc. Much more interesting combinations of flavours than many other sushi sports in Auckland. Highly Recommended. I come here regularly.

I'm sure this place has alot of regulars but we are probably their most regular dining there once a week, most weeks for about 6 years. What keeps us coming back is the freshness of the sushi - we think it's the best in Auckland....More

The food here never fails for please. The sushi is always fresh and delicious, and it's pretty great if you're on a budget- never too expensive. They have delicious Udon and Donburi too. Love stopping in for a quick lunch when I'm nearby.

Bian sushi once was AMAZING! Fresh and tasty and good value! Sadly over the last few months its quality and customer service has slipped. I went there to have my favorate chicken katsu curry. It was bland and uninspired. There were loads of fruit flies...More

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...More
