On A nice quiet corner of Galle Face, this Zen garden oasis appears with good Japanese mains and gracious contemporary Japanese decor. With a reserved room, the rooms are private and the service is respectful of your privacy with remote service calling. The food is well prepared and the sushi fresh. Most of all, for the homesick there is Japanese... More

Well, my expectations were probably too high (according to reviews). We ordered some sushi and teriyaki chicken. Sushi was very average, except for tuna which was exceptional! And chicken was too sweet. I would not recommend this one.

I have been coming very often here. I came back after 4 years and surprisingly the restaurant is still here. As usual a great place to have fine Japanese food and later shop at the Odel...

This place is amazing, whether for lunch or dinner. Sit at a table with friends, or book a small room ahead of time in order to really get the full experience. The food here is excellent, agadashi tofu, and gyu no tataki are the most memorable. I have never left this place dissatisfied, excellent service, passionate owner = great experience.

I'm writing this using Asia Top 50 Restaurants as a benchmark. If Nihonbashi is to be rated as a normal Japanese Restaurant in Sri Lanka, it would have receive an average to above average rating from me. However, its ranked top 50 in Asia, thus the bar is different. It was a much anticipated visit to Nihonbashi as its rated... More

Love the food and Nihonbashi made love my Japanese food. Love their food and the place. Staff is very friendly and helpful in suggesting food. Expensive but value for money! Love the water drop sound when dinning.

This will not be my first selection. Way over priced. Not value for money. Food is tasty and place is nice. Service is ok. We come there and pay lot money to eat therefore attitude of the owners and Chefs should more down to earth.

I've been going to this restaurant from 2001. I visited this restaurant on the 11th June 2016 for dinner after about 6 months. I patronize this place because of the quality of the food especially the Okonomiyaki. Nihonbashi happened to be the best in town for Okonomiyaki. However what they served was pale, bland and tasteless. It was the worst... More

Overall the experience was good, staff were attentive, food was definitely fresh and high quality. Restaurant and setup are great. However I have had much better sushi in USA, Taiwan, and the UK for less. Prices I felt were very expensive, was more like eating out in London than Colombo.
