Interesting little place

This is probably the smallest sushi place Ive been to but the food was great. They aren't open for lunch, only dinner but open late.

This is a review for Ichiban Fish House, on Spring Garden ave., off Yonge. I believe the restaurant photo on this mobile site is incorrect. Anyway.... I agree with one of the reviewer saying that it ain't what it used to be . True that. For those who still want to try it out, comparing to the other sushi places... More

I have been going to this restaurant for about 18 years, and just love it. First of all the fish is always fresh which is the #1 priority when eating Sashimi/Sushi. The food is really good especially the Tempura, the batter is light and not thick and delicious, the the salmon Chirachi is also great, and the Hae Dup Bap... More

I moved away from Toronto a few years ago, but every few months when I'm back in town, I try to stop in here. It's convenient being just off the 401! I pretty well always get the Love Bento, as it has Sashimi, Sushi, and Maki (upgrade the maki to spicy salmon for $1). Great value and always fresh!

I used to frequent this place for lunch. Things really gone down hill in the past few years. It used to be owned by some Koreans but now, it looks like the management had changed. The food used to be acceptable, but now the fish quality has noticeable got worse. Meanwhile, the price has stayed the same. I won't be... More

Later on when we opened the lit, we found several other flies inside the bottle. We told the waiter/waitress about it and were surprised to see that they didnt find it... More

This restaurant is busy but is truly a poor-cousin of the Ichiban at Empress Walk. I enjoy sashimi but will never have sashimi here again. The fish does not appear fresh and the portions are not acceptable. If you like your average rolls, teriyaki, etc than you may enjoy this restaurant.

Been here more than 5 times. The sushi here was always fresh. The sushi chefs have a habit of yelling something when someone comes in. Brings alittle colour to the place.
