WOW!! That's what you call chicken noodle soup.

It's been a while since I've been here, but when I ordered my "chicken noodle soup" WOW it was a huge bowl and must have had half a chicken in it. Great value for money and good food.

I first dine here a month ago with my husband, son and daughter. It's my daughter’s favourite place and she managed to persuaded her brother (who is very fussing) to come along by assuring him that curry on the menu.

This is a good place to get a lovely japanese dish for a reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was pleasantly informal

I was a bit wary of trying Japanese food but my friend convinced me. And so began my love affair with Ichiban! The menu is extremely varied - not just sushi and noodles! My personal favourite is the Yasai Curry. And the Chicken Katsu Curry. And the chicken Kushiyaki. Okay I love most of the menu! The restaurant itself is... More

Persuaded by our son who is a big fan of Japanese food, we dined at Ichiban. I expected it all to be sushi and raw fish but was pleasantly surprised by the choice. The food was very good and reasonably priced. My only down was that it lacked a little atmosphere but maybe that was because it wasn't busy when... More

This is the best place for Japanese food in Glasgow, hands down. Service is always quick and food is served as soon as it is prepared. Simple seating and vibe, but definitely attracts a type of manga loving cyber gothic teen / adult crowd, sometimes in large and noisy groups. Sometimes feels like a comi-con convention. But it's not a... More

Visited for lunch after hearing good reviews from friends. We started with Yasai Gyoza and Yasai Tempura, neither of which were full of flavour and both had a faint taste of fish. My only guess is that the oil in which they were fried had also been used to fry prawns at some point. We then had Tekka (Tuna) Maki,... More

My husbands favorite lunch joint. I usually accompany him to this place. I like their sushi and pot stickers ( although they are pricey). They have nice lunch menu. I would say if you want to have a quick lunch and want to eat fancy definitely give this place a try.
