Having seen its launch in Somerset, they are always on my list of "To Try" places.

Store Front
Dining concept was modern with vibrant ambiance and comfortable settings.

Dining Interior
One part of their dining which drew my attention was their semi circle dining chairs, comfortable and suitable for food sharing with friends on a round table.

Interior
Business name of the curry house was even stamped onto their utensils like spoons and forks. I'm amazed.

Utensils
To make a meal with our plates of curry rice, we topped up with the choice of two items, mini salad and a drink.

With Set Menu + $3.50 for 2 Items and $4.50 for 3 ttems
Mini bowl of salad was served first before the main courses. Lettuce, japanese cucumbers, corns kernels and tomato drenched in sesame dressing make up the mini bowl.

Mini Salad
Lemon Tea was served!

Ice Lemon Tea
However, it comes without sugar content and we are suppose to add in the syrup to determine gauge the sweetness level.

Syrup
While we can choose the level of sweetness from the bubbletea shops, in CocoIchibanya, customers get to have their say in the spice adjustment of the curry with

mild (for children)
Level 0 - Standard
Level 1 - Medium Hot
Level 2 - Hot
Level 3 - Extra hot
Level 4 - Super Hot
Level 5 - Crazy Hot


Fried Chicken Omelet Curry was presentable, served in a round white plate loaded with a pool of thick, gooey curry with bright yellow omelet covering up the rice. Pieces of fried chicken was placed surrounding the rice, quarterly sank into the curry pool.

Omelet
To play safe, we took the default (standard) spice level, it does taste a tad spicy but still without control limits. Chicken was tender and fried to golden brown. Yummy!

Fried Chicken Omelet Curry - $15
It looks a little big more meat here on the plate of Pork Cutlet Omelet Curry. Simply love the breaded texture at the pork exterior and with its meat without being too fatty. Likewise, the omelet was moist with smooth texture, giving a sweet taste which features the characteristics how an omelet taste like from the Japanese.

Pork Cutlet Omelet Curry - $16
Breaded pork was a little tough but goes very well with the thick and tasty curry.

Attentive service and its delicious curry give the best reason to make a return here. This place is recommendable to all especially Japanese Curry Lovers!
