Great food, consistent and with excellent service. Usually have their salads, and their California maki, and their deep fried salmon sushi. Location is a bit of a problem, the area is usually congested during lunch and dinner.

I love this place. The Japanese food is great and value for money. Seafood (Sashimi) is fresh! One of my favourite Japanese restaurant in Kuching.

Was expecting a decent meal as it was part of a huge F&B group, but guess that I am wrong. Their price is quite high as compared with what we have at home. 1st. There were 5 of us. They only give us 2 copy of menu. 2nd. Sashimi is warm 3rd. Chawanmushi is totally bland, tasteless 4th. The curry... More

Good Japanese food with reasonable price. Can be reach by bus if you're not a local or if you don't mind to walk while sightseeing it's just 10 mins walk away from Padungan street (starts from the cat statue of course...). DO place a booking to sit by the counter. I always enjoy watching the chef preparing my food.

We've eaten in and gotten take away and not only has the food always been solid but the staff have always been pleasant and friendly. The restaurant is occasionally crowded during lunch hours so food service may not come as quickly but the ambience is... More

We had asked for the use of one of the empty room but we were told it was reserved. The room remained unoccupied throughout while we... More

Ask a few local Kuching-ites, and many will say that Ten Ichi is the best Japanese Restaurant in Kuching. Tried the maki's and the okonomiyaki here recently, and the bento set lunch during my last visit. The food is consistent, fresh ingredients. Price for maki's range from RM14 - RM30+. Had the Salmon Avocado Maki RM14- quite small roll, but... More
