Located on the top floor of the Galleries Victoria on George St (opposite the QVB and in short walking distance from Town Hall), the famed 'Ichi-Ban Boshi' Japanese restaurant could have easily gone unnoticed by prospective diners. In truth, I only "discovered" it after taking a visit to it's neighbour, Kinokuniya ...read more

i really like the very hot ramen. It's a huge serving so don't eat anything before you go. I still can't finish it anyway. You have to wait but they have this sign up sheet and they call your number. Good price for a big bowl of Japanese noodles. I also like the green tea latte.
I love ichiban boshi. 1. Best Tan Tan Tsukemen I have ever tasted, plus love the option to choose the spinach noodles. The dipping sauce broth is divine and trumps all tsukemen's I've had by a mile in terms of flavour, consistency and ingredients. Ichiban Boshi's eggs are the best ramen/Japanese soup miso egg I have ever had. Omg yum. 2. They have a super deliciousread more
Irrasshaimase! You know how everyone LOVES Japenese food? Well, if anyone says that and hasn't tried Ichi-Ban Boshi, they are liars. Straight up. Ichi-Ban Boshi is quite possibly the best and closest to authentic Japanese restaurant in Sydney. Sure, it's subjective blah blah blah but hear me out. POINT 1: The dcor at Ichi-Ban Boshi is pretty average. It doesn't look amazing,read more
You forgot the sushi rice. One of the few Japanese places in Sydney that actually makes the sushi rice the Japanese way. Rice Wine Vinegar and sugar. Dat's what I'm talkin' bout mmmhmmm.
I can't quite understand the long lines during peak lunch hour at ItchiBan Boshi. The food is fairly average. Admittedly, the serving is generous and the price is cheap. I tried the entree sized Chicken Karaage and the Pork Tonkatsu. The Chicken Karaage consisted of large marinated fried chicken pieces lacking any crunch. The Pork Tonkatsu was good with aread more
Decent Japanese food for a good price. This place is great if you want a quick meal. Not really where you would go to eat out (as it is in a food court) but an absolutely decent Japanese meal. There is a huge amount of competition in this space, but it is one of two places in the vicinity that I would seek out to eat a Japanese Meal!
Average Japanese in a convenient location. It's not bad, but I feel there are better Japanese places in the city. I've tried the chicken katsudon and ramen here and they were alright but nothing to rave about. I do appreciate the side of miso that comes with rice dishes.
