Great food and quick service. Lovely details and delicious food. Chef made lovely paper rose for my child and quickly created child friendly chopsticks.

At the bottom of a lane you'll find Nihonbashi, one f the best restaurants in Colombo. Really excellent Japanese fare and a genuine Japanese experience. Book early and get yourself a private room. Did I mention great service?

one of the Worst Japanese restaurant I been too. Asked for many items in their own menu and the apologize that it was not available. Service was very slow and food test less than your regular Japanese restaurant. In my opinion, don't bother visiting it

We visited them on a lazy Sunday evening. Only 3 other groups were dining there. The food is good but somewhat expensive. The serving staff were extremely helpful and welcoming

Nihonbashi is one of my favorite restaurants. My favorite menu items are: Handroll - Tensabi Temaki Edamame Namaharumaki Then the Wasabi Ice-cream at the main restaurant is a must try!

Average food, average service, average ambience. Bad sign when waiters don't really know what to recommend and don't seem that enthusiastic about anything. More frustrating when they seem to be more attentive to the private dining room guests. You shouldn't have to wave frantically because...More
