Authentic Sushi Restaurant

There are so many sushi restaurants in Vancouver/Richmond but many do not have Japanese sushi chefs. This one has been around for a long time and their sashimi is very fresh and really good. Staff is really friendly but this place can get very busy so you have to book a day or two in advance. It's... read more

This is a neighborhood staple, with many local families dining here for lunch or dinner. Open 7 days a week, serving quality, authentic Japanese food. Often full, reservations a good idea.

Always dependable. Always consistent. Always fresh. A terrific menu. Great service. This is a family favourite and visitors from out-of-town are always impressed by the qualify of the food here. We highly recommend Ichiro!

Atmosphere is nice and the staff very nice with the exception of them pushing the most expensive dishes and specials. I was referred here by a co worker for the sushi and was a bit let down. We ordered a number of ala carte sushi and all of it was mediocre. Color of the sushi was good but texture was... More

Omakase, or "I'll leave it up to you," the literal meaning of the term. That is, you select the price ranges and let the chef decide and do the rest. My wife arranged it in advance for my birthday, and what a pleasant surprise! (And I knew about this arrangement prior to going.) We had a six-course dinner, with dishes... More

The food here was okay for one visit. I got a bento and some other dishes and they were all right in taste but not that spectacular. The tempura was a bit cold and the fish wasn't that great. the prices were not worth it. I've been to most of the other sushi restaurants in the neighbourhood but I think... More

Vancouver has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to Japanese restaurants. Some pretend to serve high concept food by a master sushi chef and some are simple local holes in the wall. Ichiro is on balance, one of the best if not the best Japanese restaurant in the lower mainland. There are are always the classic menu items you'd... More

It's been a few years since I was in the Ichiro, focusing more on the small, economy-style Japanese restaurants around Richmond. Went there recently again in a busy lunch hour (well, they're all busy; reservations definitely recommended). Food was excellent, authentically Japanese and carefully prepared: service very professional and efficient. It's a real restaurant with highly experienced professional staff. The... More

This is a favorite when we are in the Richmond area, though we find it a bit expensive. The selection is good, the lunch menu and bento selections are fabulous. Cuts of fish are good, not great. We love being here for lunch.

We were traveling from Victoria to Kelowna and decided to have some sushi in Richmond so stopped at Ichiro's. I lived in Japan for several years and this place did not disappoint. The lunch sets are great value for money. I had the Fuji set for about $15 and enjoyed every bite of the teriyaki chicken, tempura, traditional spinach sesame... More
