A great place for lunch

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

We came to this restaurant to make use of a gift certificate and I hadn’t been to this restaurant in a long time – probably over 2 years. We arrived around 1:45 PM just before the restaurant closing at 2:00 PM. At that time the restaurant was maybe ¼ to 1/3rd full as people were finishing their lunches. The server... More

My wife and I (along with our less than 1 yr daughter) randomly walked in there for dinner last night. It was busy, but they were able to seat us within 10 minutes. The service was excellent- very attentive and polite waitresses. The food was also of the best quality. I would highly recommend this place for all types of... More

Busy Japanese restaurant in Steveston. Food is good and service is very attentive, even when they are busy. Lots of vegetarian options and they were very accommodative with special orders. Prices are a bit on the high side but the quality is worth it.

Richmond and Vancouver have many restaurants to choose from. This restaurant had such excellent, fresh sushi and uniquely prepared rolls that we returned for a second night. I enjoyed the Ichiro roll immensely while my companion had Chirashi. The menu is extensive, with numerous options at various prices. We wanted to try the Sushi boat for two at $45, but... More

Ichiro is popular in the village of Steveston, because the food is good. But if you value privacy, forget about it. Tables are crammed so close together you can hear all your neighbor's conversations as they can yours. Forget intimate. Just go for the food.

The sushi here is just awesome. This is an old fashioned Japanese-run sushi restaurant. It's not very expensive for the quality of the food. It's a fun spot and the food is just great. Best sushi in Richmond for sure.

Ichiro lives up to its name (number 1) in Richmond certainly. It is a bit pricier than other Japanese restaurants but it has good quality sushi and sashimi and usually has special fish featured. I have ordered out on many occasions but ate in recently. They have a very wide selection of sushi and Bento boxes. It is very busy... More
