scenario 1: I'm eating sushi.

scenario 2: I'll eat sushi in a couple of minutes.

I say to my friends who sit besides me,

I've never eaten sushi before.

I've never eaten sushi until now.

Do both sentences imply a change that I'm making: I'm eating sushi now or I'll eat sushi very soon?

"I've never eaten sushi before" is the most idiomatic. We would say it in either scenario.

We might say "I've never eaten sushi until now," but in scenario 2 it sounds somewhat unnatural.
