Not bad!
Overall Score 
Ichiban Boshi is a restaurant that serves Japanese food ranging from Sukiyaki to Bento boxes and sushi. It has 6 outlets in Singapore, which is why I find their food rather commercialised. The Japanese food they serve have lost their authenticity. For instance, the soup in their udon lacks the strong taste of mirin. Additionally, their food is rather pricy - one would expect to spend up to $25 for lunch there.

However, if one is seeking a mid-range Japanese restaurant, Ichiban Boshi may be the place to go. While the food is pricier than Sakae Sushi for example, it tastes better. Also, another plus point is that they have a loyalty card where you get a stamp for every $20 spent. This card can eventually be exchanged for vouchers or free food items such Agedashi Tofu and California roll. Personally, this incentivises me to spend in multiples of 20.

Overall, if you are looking for a authentic Japanese dining, Ichiban Boshi may fall short in delivering that. Instead, Ichiban Boshi is more suited for families to grab a quick dinner on a weekend after school and work.
