Sushi Bang is run by Chinese chefs and staff, but don't let that get in the way of you giving this place a try. The sushi is really good, creative, fresh and very well priced. It does not look like much, just another small diner type setting, but the service is fast and there are quite a few creative sushi dishes. There is definitely a wow factor to some of the sushi that rolls from behind the sushi bar.

On a busy lunch rush, there is usually a small line out the door, the place also does a lot of pick-ups, so that is an alternative if you don't want to wait. If you do get a seat, you are sat pretty close to your neighbour and very privy to their conversation, its a little awkward. So have a paper or your cell phone at hand to pretend you are concentrating on something else as the couple next to you discuss their relationship :P

If you want to avoid the tight quarters, then wait to go till after lunch, 2pm and onwards is definitely a lot quieter.

My favourite sushi roll is the Veg Dragon Roll, with mangos, avocado and great veg stuffing, give that a try.

So even though it does not have the ambience of a 5 star restaurant, it is still a great joint to go to for some great sushi and good prices. It is my go to sushi place.

Really fast service, good prices, the rolls are pretty but way too big! Very busy with little wait and great location

Sushi Bang is a fantastic place to pick up a quick bite to eat or a takeaway! The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff are friendly, the food is good and the prices are unbeatable.

We first used Sushi Bang through Just Eat, and have gone to them every time since. You can have a bento box for as little as $6, which includes miso soup on the side. They will also give you a free upgrade to Gyoza instead of salad, if you prefer. The last time we ordered, I accidentally had the wrong address in the form and the driver couldn't get through to my phone. Instead of just driving back to the restaurant, he waited until we got through to him and drove to our address. Most places wouldn't do this and we really appreciated the fact that Sushi Bang made sure we got our delivery.

I popped into the restaurant for lunch today and was full halfway through my bento box. And my whole meal only cost me $7!

Honestly, this place may not be glamorous, brand new or famous - but it's reliable and won't disappoint.

Great find with delicious food and generous servings. The sushi rolls will be mouthwatering delicious. Their prices are pretty cheap compared to other restaurants; try their ika karage, hamachi sashimi or even a bento box! And by cheap I don't mean "here's dynamite roll with only the shrimp and a bit a cucumber" cheap, I mean "Here's a dynamite roll with TWO shirmp, crab meat, and cucumber for $3.50" cheap.

As for the seating arrangement's, the tables are wobbly sometimes and when it gets busy the tables are literally cramped together and you will be sitting right next to the person beside you. The food comes fairly fast.

Overall, it's a good place for cheap yummy sushi TO GO.

A very nice, if a bit rustic, place for sushi. The wait staff acted as though they were owners (not sure if that is true, but I would bet on it), meaning they were proud of their place and the food they served. A real treat, and inexpensive too.
