This restaurant is always busy, and there are usually lines to get in during lunch or dinner time. They offer several options in the menu, and the food is delicious and well prepared. They only take cash, so go prepared. They have an express booth...More

At the moment it is closed for renovations, fear not, they have an outlet in the lower ground floor. Ordering was a bit confusing, ended up with fried Gyoza, but the Tokyo Ramen made me happy again.

This place was ok for a fast lunch, I had the Udon noddles with a spicy curry sauce which was a thick syrup that wasn't that great. Overall it was ok.

I like to frequent here as food comes out fairly fast. I do like the seafood salad and fried gyoza. The staff are all pleasant and the place is clean. Or if you prefer you can just pick the food from the conveyor belt.

With food court ambience, Ichi-ban Boshi clearly isn’t about fancy trappings. What lures in diners is simple and tasty Japanese fare. Located near the Japanese bookshop giant, Kinokuniya, mark it down as a solid spot for a night of wintery self-care - kicking off with...More

Simple, tasty Japanese fare. Not pretentious (like so many Sydney eating establishments), just delicious and authentic. Located upstairs in an upscale food court, the staff are friendly and helpful; they actually take your order at the table and also bring the food. We had an...More

The decor was average and the service was disappointing .... with only a glass for table water and no jug. If the staff standing around chatting away can’t be bothered refilling glasses, they should just leave a jug of water on the table. I was...More

I visited Ichiban Boshi for lunch while on a day trip in Sydney. I arrived around 1pm, waited 5min for a table, ordered the Tokyo ramen, and it was served about 10mins later. The ramen had a good texture, broth was a little on the...More

Do a very good ramen. I enjoy the very hot miso but change the pork for karage chicken. Service is quick and friendly. Priced reasonably. Restaurant need to be updated. Have had a couple of ramens here. As good as Ryos but not as good...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
