Nihonbashi is deservedly in Asia's 50 best restaurant list. A variety of seating areas gives great flexibility in experience. The menu is carefully curated and every dish is perfectly balanced. A very good wine list. Great date night spot.

We had dinner at this restaurant and impressed with the food, interior and services, thus the location little bit inside around the residential complex. Somehow when you travel abroad you should eat local foods, but we didn't regrets to eat at this restaurant. I might say this is not budget restaurant, thus all of food are great and in good... More

Superb and one of the best in Colombo. The veggie choices are limited and they didn't have many of the items in the day we went. Be sure to read the menu properly for example they can make a veggie miso soup but it isn't labelled as such. My husband had plenty of fantastic sushi and sashimi. They have lots... More

There was a great sushi lunch set with attractive price. That was also great quantity which one person could eat fully and enjoy the whole lunch time. The flavour itself does not lag behind any other sushi menu in other sushi bars. I will not hesitate to eat there again when it allows me to visit again.

Excellent sashimi and other dishes and the table service was good. However, whilst I was talking to one of my guests the bill was thrust at me at 2.45 pm accompanied by the statement that "we close at 3.00 o'clock). This was before I asked for it and before we were asked if we would like dessert (in fact, we... More

We had Maguro sashimi for starters. Miso soup, beef with glutinous rice and raw egg for main. Very good and filling, would have liked sake to go with it, but unfortunately restaurant not licensed. SLR 3,000 per pax, was reasonable pricing.

Thank Peter E
