“Good Japanese Foods on Traditional Mats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Food is good with a god taste, pungency and appearance. There is a chance to sit on traditional mats and take a private dine session in separate cubicles without moving with other people in the restaurant.

“Possibly The longest Wait For The Ordered Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We checked in at this Japanese restaurant last last around 8.15pm . Being a Friday we were surprised to see the place empty and we were the only one's in when we were ushered to our seats . It didn't take us much time to place our orders since we have eaten here before and ordered even online too . Other guest started trickling in by now and the place was almost full.
I cant believe our ordered food which amounted to six items took one and a half hours to be served and this was after inquiring where our food is . We were also served with one item less and had to be reminded of and when that order came we had almost finished our meals. We were the first to check in and last to be served after other guest who came after us .

“Bento Box - Great Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

So I finally made it to Naniyori for lunch.. I only had a bento box. It was really good and most of all the prices are just so reasonable and the food was good too! Definitely going again to try out the rest of their menu and to have the Bento box again. The gentleman that served us was very polite and good. His english was not that good, but to be honest it really didn't matter, he still took good care of us.

“Decent quality and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Its certainly not the best Japanese in Colombo but its decent enough and quite affordable in comparison to most other Japanese restaurants in Colombo. The bento boxes are big and very good value for money. They deliver as well so a good option for Japanese at home. The phone operators are not the best so you may have to repeat orders and explain your address and directions but so far they have managed to get my food to me in reasonable time.
