It's not usual to find a very good japanese restaurant which takes advantage of the top quality of portuguese fish. Ichiban has an authentic japanese cuisine with real japanese dishes with superb quality fish. So do not expect to find "sushi fusion" and other kind of "innovations" here. Nothing but a honest and very good japanese food. It's the best... More

We took a menu for 16€. The quality of the fish was spectacular! And the size of every piece of sashimi/ nigiri/ temaki we got was really big so the value for money is REALLY good. If you visit Porto and you like sushi, you just HAVE TO visit this place, you won't regret. The food is just as good... More

Definitely the best for sushi and sashimi in OPorto. The freshness of the fish and the quality of the (Japanese) sushiman is top noch not to mention the good wines. I visited Japan recently and i "feel at home" in this restaurant.The table service need to improve.

Great food, prepared with top quality fresh fish. Good service, and very nice sphere and decoration. Perfect combination of Japanese receipts, preparation and details combines with Portuguese fish and hospitality.

Discovered it by accident, but what a nice one! I can imagine taking a plane just to eat here again :). The food was INCREDIBLE! Do not go for the sushi, that does not do the redtaurant credit. Go for the Cadenza menu... You will be in heaven. At the end we were fighting over deserts :) Tip: alvarinho wine,... More

I come here every week. If you're after fusion sushi with cheese and fruit, forget it, go elsewhere. This is a traditional Japanese restaurant. The menu is not only sushi but includes a variety of traditional Japanese food which has nothing to go with sushi, imagined by the Japanese chef. Having said that, I usually come for sushi. And they... More

Very good authentic Japanese cuisine. Having lived in Japan, Hawaii, and on the West Coast, our family has eaten at several good Japanese restaurants. Currently living in Germany, we have not found a Japanese restaurant in Europe as good as Ichiban in Porto, Portugal. The Sushi, Donburi, and fried Tofu were excellent. Very nice setting along the main Beachside promenade... More
