I went here with my partner for a meal on bank holiday. The restaurant was very quite but nice. We were severed by a new girl that didn't speak great English but was very nice and friendly. For starter I ordered octopus and my partner ordered a selection of raw fish and seaweed. My starter was shocking I had at... More

Lush food and good services although the prices keep going up and up!!! Still an empty plate at each visit and I do tend to order different things each time I go. Highly recommended.

I always find the Sushi here to be really good, but its the venue I have a problem with...its a bit 'sticky floor' if you're ok with that then go just for the food.

As a regular customer to Ichiban with no complaints until now I am appalled by the service I received today! My order was placed, after waiting an hour for delivery I got the wrong order, I phoned the restaurant to tell them that 1 item was missing from my order. Instead if them bringing the 1 item missing from my... More

We love coming here for the food. It's really handy to visit solo too for a quick lunch. Nearly as fast as McDonald's but far better and FRESH! The lunchtime special bento meals are great.

Am a regular visitor to this place whether it be at the restaurant or take out, and it is amazing. It is slightly on the expensive side, but it really is worth every penny as the food tastes fresh and of quality. We enjoy the seafood ramen and the tempura calamari! If you want a take out that is slightly... More

Met a friend here yesterday and we both had a lovely time. I'm not a big fish fan to be fair so had chicken which was delicious. What I particularly liked was the fact you weren't hurried out once you'd finished, despite the fact it was getting busy. Lots of parents taking their children there so must take mine so... More

I came here for a birthday meal and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had the Kaisen Furai Teishoku while my partner had Tempura Teishoku - both were cooked to perfection, and at £13 a head, excellent value too. One thing that made it more special was that half of the clientele were Japanese - try seeing that in Yo Sushi! Definitely... More
