We took a friend here for dinner a few days ago and had a fun, family style meal at the Ichiban Japanese Restaurant. This restaurant, located in the Thamel tourist district of KTM, a bit hard to find, but on a main street at ground level. The restaurant is actually located somewhat towards the back of the building, but we chose instead to sit up front closer to the street and some daylight. Not a lot of ambiance yet in this fairly new restaurant, I think maybe they have been open for about a month? I grew up with Japanese food, so I may be more particular than most. The menu was fairly expansive, and we had fun trying a variety of items. Starting with some vegetarian sushi, complete with the wasabi and fresh sliced ginger, on to some chicken wings, then some garlic fried rice, a pork cutlet Katsu, a mixed tempura platter, Miso soup, green bean salad with carrots and sesame. All in all, not a bad meal in Kathmandu. Criticisms, the sushi rice was a bit overcooked, they used the same rice for the Sushi and the fried rice (they should use different rice for each) . Service was a bit sporadic, and they could use some training in this area, like remembering to bring small bowls and plates so we could share the various dishes ( true of 99 percent of all restaurants in Nepal)
Best item was by far the Tempura, and the tempura prawns were very very good. next best, the Katsu, all the right sauces and accompaniments! With appetiser, drinks, dinner and tip, figure about $15.00/person
