We were in Colombo in a group to celebrate the 60th birthday of a friend when Nihonbashi was suggested. A Nice place with a good ambiance and private dining, the service was relaxed but the food was tasty and enjoyable.

Visited the restaurant at the ODEL store with my wife. We were hungry and Sugar was packed and ended up going to Nihonbashi. Disappointing outing for both since all the dishes we got were average. Service was below par. Comparatively expensive than most of the...More

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!

I have never been so disappointed after having diner in a claimed high-ranking quality restaurant. Even listed in the top-50 of Asia. The service was terrible - totally not client-oriented. Drop the food as quickly as possible on the table, not noticing the speed of...More

Wow. This really made me not trust san pellegrinos top 50 restaurants, because this was literally the most average borderline bad sushi/japoneses I have ever been to. I have been to many Michelin star restaurants and some are better than others but the standard of...More
