I know that many people complain that the food here is like Japanese Fast Food but I really beg to differ. Of course it is not gourmet Jap cuisine but we are also not paying top dollars for those type of cuisines. I have had the fortune of experiencing an authentic Japanese dinner that is mind-blowing but Ichiban Boshi serves good comfort food that feeds my Japanese stomach without ripping a hole in my pocket!I love their salad with Japanese dressing!

I love their salad with Japanese dressing! I always struggle to not order it as I ALWAYS over-order.
My hubby loves their raw fish over rice box! I love their salmon slices over rice box too!
The first time I ordered their calamari was slightly disappointed, the crisp is there but sadly the flavour is somewhat lacking...
Still...its my favourite go-to place to fulfill my Jap needs!

This is my second time at ichiban boshi, and I am still pretty satisfied with the standard of food there. This chicken teriyaki udon set that I have ordered has lots of variety of food in it and all were good. The teriyaki sauce was very well flavored and the chicken was tender and soft. The sashimi taste very fresh and chewy too. And I like how light the udon soup base taste. The noodles were very chewy. Charwanmushi was rather mediocre has it has not that hot when I’m eating.Overall, my main c

The place was still quite empty when we went on a weekday noon during the school holidays although this might have to do with the fact that the outlet opened its doors for business just a short while ago. Nevertheless, the interior was clean and the place was already operational with sushi already being prepared and placed on the conveyor's belt. Upon seating, we placed our order and were surprised when the food were served less than 5 minutes later. I guess that was an advantage of going when the place was still empty.

Ichiban Jyu ($13.90)
My friend opted for this dish which was salmon sashimi with sesame oil and chili padi on sushi rice bowl. The salmon was quite fresh and the dish was a tad spicy. My friend liked this dish and found it pretty good, although I was neutral about it. This dish also came with a side of miso soup which was quite tasty.

Cha Soba ($8.50)
I wanted to save my stomach for more food at Sentosa later, so I just got a bowl of Cha Soba. This simple dish was served cold with ice on it to maintain the temperature. The soba was quite firm and chewy. The dipping sauce was a tad salty but it worked well and added some flavour to the otherwise mild soba. Overall, I thought this was a rather refreshing dish to have and it was also quite reasonable at $8.50. My friend also gave this dish the thumb up. If you are looking for a healthy but tasty meal, I'd recommend the cha soba, which you can also pair up with a dish from the ala carte menu for a more completed meal!

I'd actually love to have sit longer and tried more food on their menu but unfortunately it was time to go. We were in and out in about 30 minutes, which I thought was rather a pity as I'd prefer to savour the experience and food especially at cafes or restaurants. Nevertheless I'd visit other branches in the future to try their other food, especially the tempura ice cream which looked quite interesting!

The mussels were really worth it! Deep fried and served hot and the sauces on top of each mussels are different.There were plenty of fresh sashimi pieces in the chirashi , but it didn't come with wasabi.A little pricier than the other dishes but it's a choice if you can't decide on what to order. Considering the number of selections that you have unagi, tempura, salmon sashimi, and broiled fish--it's really worth it. Also nice to share too tea that you can order, but need to ask them to help you

My girl requested to have Japanese food for dinner and since we are already at ViVo City, we brought her at Ichiban Boshi. Just like Sakae Sushi, Ichiban Boshi also serves sushi in kaiten (conveyor belt). My sushi lover girl picked two plates of sushi from the kaiten and she ordered Honetsuki Torimomo Mushi from the menu. In layman's term, it's a stewed drumstick with potato salad. For the record, she finished it all by herself considering she also had two plates of sushi (she only shared 1 each

For the record, she finished it all by herself considering she also had two plates of sushi (she only shared 1 each for me and the hubby). The drumstick must be really good, my girl rarely finishes her food when we eat out.

Hubby and i had Kaisen Salad, Hotate Cheese Yaki and Soft Shell Crab Tempura. The kaisen salad is a must try! Hotate Cheese Yaki on the other hand is only recommended for cheese lovers.

This is the second time I came to Ichiban Boshi at Vivocity after it opened few months back. I chose this place as we wanted to celebrate my mum's birthday and since my brother is footing the bill, I thought this was a good quality Japanese place that will not burn a hole in his pocket.

Unfortunately my mother doesn't feel like eating fish so she ordered the ten-don, which is tempura on rice. The ingredients were freshly fried and not too oily. Brother took the Teriyaki Chicken don, which came with big chunky pieces of well-marinated teriyaki chicken. My mother also chose a new item on the menu to share-- enoki mushroom in butter soup. What we didn't realise is that it is really more a soup than a dish.. so the mushrooms were very little. It is cooked/steamed in an aluminium foil but I must say the butter soup is quite unique.

I was greedy and ordered 2 sides--tofu salad and tonkatsu. Tonkatsu's meat was very huge chunk which is great because it means Im not just eating batter. And the tofu salad was surprisingly good! I love the sesame dressing and even if I eat it on its own I think it will fill me up.

Tokusen Beef and Foie Gras Don: This rice bowl consisted of sliced premium beef on rice topped with goose liver and mentai sauce. A bowl of miso soup accompanies this dish but I didn't take a picture of it. The mentai sauce went well with the beef and goose liver and the beef was tender and had a smoky grilled taste which made it very fragrant. Loved it!!

Ichiban Boshi has really nice sushi. I really enjoy going there with my family for a nice simple Japanese sushi meal. The sushi that we always order is the salmon maru one. It is really good with thick slices of salmon sashimi wrapped around perfectly cooked Japanese rice. The rice is perfectly seasoned being very very tasty! This is my favorite sushi rice so far. It really is very flavourful and a plus is the establishment is not too expensive!

But the highlight of our meal was my bf’s meal–a beef hotplate, with seared salmon and black pepper fried dory! Very sumptuous huh? I tasted the beef gravy and found it tasty but a tad salty. I realised that the food in ichiban boshi is very tasty, but mostly because they use very heavy sauce. He really loved the beef and said it was once of the best he had eaten here in sg.

The dory was quite normal, and the seared salmon even came with a sauce.. its supposed to be a bit like seared tuna, with the outside cooked and inside still raw. Good nonetheless but perhaps with this freshness taking it raw was better?

My only gripe was the gyoza.. it was fried, not panfried, and came in a heavy teriyaki type sauce again. Too much fried, and because it was in the sauce, not crispy anymore. I would not recommend this dish.

All in all we were very very satisfied and they can be sure we would be regulars!
