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

Ichiban Boshi is popular, despite being high above the ground floor shopping area. I'm more into Thia and Malaysian food which has a lot more kick and punch to its flavours. But my noodles really felt a bit wishy washy and lacking something. They were...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
