Extremely tasty and fresh food. The don buri and the sashimi platter were phenomenal! Must try in Colombo.

Nihonbashi is an excellent, authentic Japanese restaurant in the Galle Face area. The quality of every dish we tried was superb! We ate there for lunch, so we all opted for the teishoku dishes. I had the Surien Teishoku and was especially impressed with the crab fried rice (featuring a generous crab portion), the okonomiyaki, and the kanten jelly. Their... More

Fantastic Japanese food. many varieties. Quite and calm location. Friendly and attentive staff. Food preparation time is little high. I like the beverages they have. also the furniture arrangements are good. But not a very big restaurant.

A big menu with lots of choice. Excellent sashimi. It's been around for a while and is looking a bit run down. The pseudo Japanese décor looks a bit tacky.

I had been to many Japanese restaurants and didn't find this anything special. Portions are very small. Not worth for money!!

I was expecting some amazing food from Nihonbashi, but it was okay at best. It definitely wasn't bad! I was just disappointed as I've heard rave reviews of the place. The menu selection is basic, with nothing really standing out. The place looked great, though, and the staff were very professional.

Nihonbashi has been voted consistently in the last four years as one of the 50 restaurants in Asia . Easy to understand why: all produce is fresh, and all dishes are extremely well prepared (and I am even not a great admirer of Japanese food!). Decor is advertised as "minimalist", zen like, which is fine for Japanese restiuarants, but the... More

it's the place for all sushi and Japanese food lovers. with a excellent setup from standard tables to private Japanese style dining rooms. Perfect for a date night or family outing. Prices can be a bit on the high side but it's worth it.
