Craving authentic Japanese food then this is the place. Quick and well priced and great taste. One of my favourites when in Auckland.

Cannot recommend this place more! Went to the Bien in Newmarket just before flying home to Australia and couldn't gunn of a better way to end our trip! The food was fresh and delicious, with hardly any wait between ordering and receiving. Highly recommend the lunch boxes, which at $14 gives you sushi, sashimi, teriyaki chicken, dumplings, salad, prawn cutlets,... More

The sushi is nice and fresh but I like the hot food. It takes awhile as the place is usually crowded. Probably abit too crowded if you like a quiet place for lunch but the good is good.

I had lunch with friends who work locally like me at Bien and food was great value. Self serve sushi is best if you are in a hurry as my cooked choice did take a bit longer. Get there early for lunch as it does fill up fast.

Really fresh (obviously!), great sushi rice (and many places can't do this fundamental well), excellent relatively traditional range of fillings/topings/combinations (don't expect rainbow rolls etc), at reasonable prices. They also do a range of domburi, but I always go for the sushi, so can't comment on these. Very popular with the lunchtime office crowds.
