have been a regular at Nihonbashi whenever we visit Sri Lanka. The best japanese you could find in Colombo. Sushi was great and also love their seafood Okonomiyaki. Quality of service and the friendly attitude has made this place one of our favorite restaurants in Sri Lanka.

Out of all the times I've been to Colombo I can't believe I have only tried Nihonbashi on my last trip. Not quite sure where to start, from the food to the presentation to the private rooms, everything is just great. On my last trip I believe I must have visited Nihonbashi around half a dozen times, which is rare... More

If you have a craving for Japanese food in Sri Lanka, you are not going to find any place better than Nihonbashi. Compared to most restaurants in SL, you will find it more expensive but I'm not complaining about the price, I will definitely go back. Sushi was great. I also really enjoyed the butter Squid, it was excellent! Had... More

This is a place I continue to come back to and it never disappoints me. I don’t think that you find better Japanese food in Colombo and the cost is very reasonable. Good service and they understand that when I ask for hot Sake I mean HOT. And you can order soft chicken bone and – tail. A good thing... More

The Nihonbashi serves solid japanese food, has a vast varity on the menu but we had to figure out that not everything was available. The quality of the food was OK but not extraordinary and given the high prices we would have expected a bit more. We can recommend the sushi, noodle soups and the salad, the deep fried tempura...

We visited on a wet Friday looking forward to a variety of Japanese food to appeal to the varied appetites of our group. Unfortunately three of the Japanese staples were unavailable, edamame and gyoza, no reason given, and yakitori, because it was raining! We ordered a mix of nigiri and sashimi with some tempura and teriyaki chicken. The chicken and... More

Came with friends and certainly this is an expensive Japanese restaurant as our bills came more than 20,000rps. The are lots of variety which you can't find in other part of Colombo. Nice ambiance and comfortable place for meeting as there are private rooms. The Sushi were good but the Ramen was just average. Overall, a good place for Japanese... More

The only place in Colombo you can get real quality Japanese food. I love this place even though they are on the pricy side. I say still worth the money. Just love the food here.
