What can I say, I fell in love with this restaurant and their food a few years ago, and i've been going nearly every month since. The food is always perfect, chicken is juicy and everything is full of flavour. You really cant go wrong with anything on the menu. The wait staff are the friendliest bunch and always go... More

I visited Ichiban during quite a busy evening and there was a wide variety of customers from young couples to families. The seating is quite cramped but since I was on my own that was okay, it may prove a challenge for the families or larger groups. The udon noodles was good, Sushi was average, nothing special, the prices reasonable.... More

Visited this lovely restaurant yesterday along with my girlfriend. Service was very attentive, received some good advices on what to choose. However, as soon as the food arrived, I had to leave due to a family emergency. The staff were making sure that everything was okay. And I would like to apologize to the staff . The food was delicious... More

Staff are always lovely, lots of options on the menu and food is always good. I usually order the same thing on the menu each time but when I'm in the mood for something different there is plenty of options even for vegetarians. Will be back here again for sure. Been here for lunch before as well and they have... More

We ordered drinks and after reading and deciding we ordered sushi and tempura... More

I enjoyed the food it was delicious but as for the venue it wasn't my cup of tea. It was too informal and cramped. Quite expensive as well.

This place is pretty nice. The food is good but I have been let down quite a few times. It's a cool place to eat, the inside is very attractive. I like how it's kind of tucked away. Not my favourite place to go but I enjoy it when I do go.

I was visiting Glasgow last month and stopped in for lunch at Ichiban. The service was really quick and the food delicious, the staff were incredibly friendly too. I will definitely be back.
