The selection is wide and varied with all popular Japanese Food on the menu. But the quality is completely a different story. Even the sake tastes so diluted thus watery. Even the sushi items don't carry that authentic Japanese flavor. Even the deserts seem so duplicated. They have redone the place rather beautifully but the space for tables has reduced... More

We chose this restaurant for our final meal in Sri Lanka. We stopped in at lunch to make a booking and were welcomed, shown a menu and were enthusiastic to return at dinner. There were four of us at dinner, and we shared sashimi platter, gyozo, sushi platter, teriaky salmon, and a delicious special, which was sashimi with garlic. Service... More

Nihonbashi is deservedly in Asia's 50 best restaurant list. A variety of seating areas gives great flexibility in experience. The menu is carefully curated and every dish is perfectly balanced. A very good wine list. Great date night spot.

We had dinner at this restaurant and impressed with the food, interior and services, thus the location little bit inside around the residential complex. Somehow when you travel abroad you should eat local foods, but we didn't regrets to eat at this restaurant. I might say this is not budget restaurant, thus all of food are great and in good... More

Superb and one of the best in Colombo. The veggie choices are limited and they didn't have many of the items in the day we went. Be sure to read the menu properly for example they can make a veggie miso soup but it isn't labelled as such. My husband had plenty of fantastic sushi and sashimi. They have lots... More

We have eaten food from this restaurant in the last two years when visiting Colombo. On each occasion the food has been fresh, hot and very enjoyable

There was a great sushi lunch set with attractive price. That was also great quantity which one person could eat fully and enjoy the whole lunch time. The flavour itself does not lag behind any other sushi menu in other sushi bars. I will not hesitate to eat there again when it allows me to visit again.
