My only constructive feedback is that it would have been nicer if dishes were a little more slowly staggered.

The whole meal was real fab, food quality high and recommendations solid.

Loved the prawns and and the beef titaki!

This is my second visit to bincho boss and it was just as good as the first. Love the large selection of drinks on offer and and the food is stunning with so much flavor. The star of the show is the Wagyu Hamburg!! This is a must have.

Positive:
We went to the Bincho on a Tuesday night, very quite and clean and seemed really well organized with the Co-vid precautions by having a gel hand sanitizer for each table. The place was quite and cozy. The waiter who looked after us was really polite and nice and explained everything in details and tried really hard to accommodate all of our requests. Food was fresh and taste.
Negative:
In my opinion it was very pricy we spent $145 (2 people) for 5 courses and we were still quite hungry it was good for an aperitivo/appetizer but not for dinner. Portion were not generous and I would say quite poor in quantity also with the soy sauce which was pored for us but not left on the table.
I have estimated that we should have spent $300 in order to get satisfied and I think it is too much.

Overall pretty good, with most dishes quite tasty however we felt the Beef Sushi was a mistake and the warm Sake overpriced. We enjoyed our night and have no reason not to recommend them.

Redeemed! After two rather horrible meals today - I couldn’t even swallow a single bite of breakfast, @binchoboss made it all better. This izakaya joint serves really delicious food - the octopus-seaweed salad and fish karage were specials of the day and I added vegetable skewers of eggplant, cherry tomatoes and potatoes to balance all the meal.

A lovely place to have a date night or meet up with your friends. Wagyu Udon, Salmon skin, and Tako Karaage are my current favourites at this stage. The staff members are also amiable, and they'd usually go through thorough details about a dish to their customers. Definitely recommend everyone to visit Bincho Boss.

Food is very good, Bincho serves more cooked Japanese food. There isn't anything to complain about. The cream caramel dessert and steamed egg were outstanding and cooked to perfection. Good service and ambience. The price is far and not too expensive at around $80 per person.

The selection of sake was wonderful. It's pricy so I'd recommend to order the sake tasting with otsumami set. All foods especially grills were so tasty. Just perfect place to enjoy beautiful sake, food & chat!

I had the best time at Bincho Boss. We went for the larger set menu and it was amazing value for what we got. All the dishes were different and interesting. It was well balanced and the perfect amount of food. The service was quick, attentive and informative. I would recommend this place to everyone!

Loved bincho boss. We chose the 7 course banquet and were not disappointed. Each course was delicious and there was heaps of it too. Our special occasion was a birthday and they made us a magic cocktail in lieu of the ice cream 7th course. The staff were awesome and attentive without being over the top. I also need to mention the cocktails which were amazing. Loved it and will be back.
