“A great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

I went to banyi for lunch on a Saturday with a group of friends. We were all very impressed. Service was excellent and very friendly. Quirky decor, and the best sushi I've tried in dublin. A cut above the rest. Highly recommended for sushi lovers.

“Best sushi in Dublin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Just by chance I passed this small Japanese restaurant in temple bar dublin. As avid Japanese food lover I just have to sample the foods. I have the dragon and unagi rolls. Have to admit it is one of the best sushi I ever taste in Dublin comparable with sushi I had when I was in Tokyo before. The presentation with the dry ice add humor to the meal. Service is simply top notch, very attentive and make me feel special despite I was on my own. They notice my green tea is getting cold in the teapot and quickly replace it. Not many place notice this kind of thing. Will definitely be back.

“Top marks for presentation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

We just love sushi / sashimi so we thought we'd try here. Fantastic. Presentation was the best I've seen, sushi presented with cooling ice coming from a little dish - we were well impressed. Not a great deal of atmosphere - only us in there one Saturday lunchtime. Would definately go again.

Hi Jilllian,

greetings from Banyi japanese Dining.

I am very happy that you enjoyed our restaurant!

Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the atmosphere, that day started quite slow. Although, the idea behind our restaurant is that guests are able to enjoy and relax, after their visit to Temple Bar.

Thank you again and I look forward to welcoming you very soon!

“Best Sushi in Dublin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Have visited Banyi twice in the past few months, was completely blown away on our first visit! The presentation of the food was amazing & everything was delicious! Cocktails were also lovely. We weren't as impressed on our second visit, it was Valentines Weekend so maybe the kitchen was under a lot of pressure?! The restaurant isn't very attractive from outside but don't let that put you off...inside is lovely! The staff are all brilliant, so friendly & attentive! We'll definitely be back soon.

“top class service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

The memory I have to this restaurant is the really outstanding service, I am not a sushi eater normally so I cannot fairly comment on the food, which is very tasty, but its a small romantic restaurant where you will we treated like royalty. It is not cheap, but its nice.
