    French/Japanese - sounds a bit scary but these guys are innovative and expert masters of the combination. Beautiful presentation and excellent service.

    We had the most incredible time at Bansho. From the second we walked in the door. The staff were amazing. The food was incredible. The wine list and cocktails were to die for. And the hospitality was something to behold. It was the best experience we’ve had in a very long time. And considering we go out regularly that is saying something. Congratulations to the team at Bansho. You should be very proud of what you have created. See you again soon.

    Service from the lead waiter and waitress was very good. Other assistants were not great forgetting orders. Food was poor.

    Whilst the food was good, service was poor. Slow to provide menus, slow to take our order, one entree to our table was 10 minutes later than all others, we had to ask twice for the bill, twice for the credit card machine and we were served the wrong drink, causing a terrible reaction for one of our guests.

    Delicious and refined food. From the toasty edamame, to the flavourful sashimi, and the recommended MUST TRY Red Capsicum sushi - that looks and feels like Salmon, but tastes like Capsicum, and the steak with miso sauce - it was a pure delight to dine at Bansho. Stunning looking restaurant that felt cosy and welcoming on a winter's night. Will definitely be back again!

    A neighbourhood gem. Friendly great service. Upmarket Japanese with a French twist. Food presentation was next level and all delicious.A pricey wine list is the only negative.

    What a great combo, French & Japanese. We had 2 starters, 1 entree (the crab in vichyssoire: wow!), a main, then 2 sashimi, then dessert. Flavours were all subtle and perfectly balanced. Wine included a Chablis and a Bordeaux; both great. Front of house was excellent, staff disciplined and knowledgeable. Music was a treat.

    I had a dinner at the sushi counter. It was a very nice atmosphere, and it made for a wonderful dining experience. They brought out some sake from the back that wasn't on the list, making our first visit but feel special. It would be great if there were more varieties of fish and sake there. It was an elegant dinner. Thank you.
