Our Curry

Serving Excellent Curry since 1978

Coco Ichibanya is a Japanese curry restaurant chain that has grown to become a global phenomenon. Established in 1978 in Nagoya, Japan, by a visionary named Yoshihiko Hyuga, the first Coco Ichibanya outlet was a humble curry and rice eatery. Over the years, its popularity soared, thanks to its customizable curry dishes that allowed patrons to choose the spice level, toppings, and portion size.

The restaurant's success in Japan prompted rapid expansion, and by the 2000s, Coco Ichibanya had established a strong presence in other Asian countries. The concept resonated with diverse palates, and the chain continued to evolve its menu to include various curry styles and accompaniments.

Internationally, Coco Ichibanya gained acclaim for its unique approach to curry, earning a loyal following. As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, Coco Ichibanya continued to thrive, with numerous outlets across Asia, Europe, and the United States, showcasing the global appeal of Japanese curry. Keep in mind that developments or expansions may have occurred since then.
