everything looked great!


I've been going to Niban for many years, too; the food is solid and inexpensive. I like the chicken katsu curry, but I'm not sure about the cheese! It used to be that there was a line before they opened the doors; I haven't seen a line in quite awhile.


Good lunch deals at Niban!


It was, Kat.

Niban is a nice place for a healthier sit down meal, Sandy. We are trying different choices at 'regular' stops lately...wild and crazy for us, but interesting for the blog. I hope the no lines thing is related to the holidays or weather; would hate to see Niban gone.

The price point is right for just about everything here, cc. Also, hot tea is always free; I order hot tea a lot.


Nice selection of fried food!


The Katsu is done just about perfectly here, Soo. At $5.75, the Chicken Katsu salad (other posts) is a meal that combines a bit of 'healthy' with fried.


I was skeptical when I saw cheese as an optional topping for curry at CoCo Ichi up in Torrance years ago. After trying it out I was a convert!


Skeptical-that's the word, Junichi! The concept o cheese with curry seemed so unusual. But, yes, after trying the 'plain' curry and then having a bite with the cheese, it was a nice flavor add-and contrast.
