Just a few blocks from the wharf where fishermen sell their catch of the day at Steveston Village, Ichiro offers delicious fresh sushi, sashimi, maki roll, tempura, noodles, etc. Reasonably priced. Reservation highly recommended.

Sushi here seems to always be fresh and tasty. Have now been three times. Have enjoyed many rolls and great cuts of sashimi. Every visit though has offered the same poor service. Had to flag down waitress to get order, fill tea, clear plates. Worse than that was we were politely asked to finish up once as the place was... More

We were there as a result of Tripadvisor reviews and found it excellent. The tempura was fresh and amazing. The sushi also. The chef is apparently well known and it shows. It is in Steveston and the proximity to fresh fish is not accidental but even if the restaurant was further away I doubt there would have been any difference.... More

Very Fresh Sashimi here. You can really tell the difference between the high quality product they are using here and some other sushi places in Richmond which don't compare. The batter on the prawn tempura was light, clean and crispy. Will definitely be returning.

One of the few authentic traditional Japanese restaurants in the Vancouver area. In terms of the menu, expect the same of what you'll find in other places - Gyoza...Teriyaki...etc. Service is great, and this place accepts reservations. It can get quite busy during lunch time and dinner. It is, however, slightly more expensive than MegaSushi down the street. Which is... More

The pork chop was breaded and crispy. Then you add fresh lemon. Then a lovely hot mustard. This is gourmet!

This is by far the best authentic japanese restaurant. Real japanese chefs honing their craft of fine japanese food. My wife and I eat here every so often on date nights and it's the consistency of flavour, portions and freshness that keeps us returning. Reservations are always needed to ensure you don't end up waiting too long for food that... More

In Richmond where there are so many huge, sterile eateries, this Steveston Japanese restaurant is a pleasure. They have a wide variety of options for a "set" lunch but we ordered a la carte: veg tempura, light and crisp, Ichiro roll, Steveston roll, Mango roll, Dynamite roll, rainbow roll, and best of all, Unagi Tens roll. Service was prompt and... More

As a resident of the Steveston area for almost 20 years, I've had a chance to try almost every restaurant in the community. I've been a fan of Ichiro's ever since it opened. The food is always fresh and perfectly prepared, the staff are exceptionally friendly and the prices reasonable. I also suggest reservations to avoid disappointment.
