Best Chinese in the area, not compatible to your ordinary bland and boring run of the mill you usually encounter.

The food was good but one of the staff was really rude and he seems doesn't know what's he doing... He answered my questions with attitude and disrespectfully .. I really think he doesn't fit as a server.

We waited more than an hour to receive our mediocre meal on Sunday night. I called three times but had little luck rushing the order to our door. DO NOT order online. Although a most convenient means of putting in an order, I'm not sure how quickly they pick up your request. The food was nothing special. Kind of a... More

We have been ordering from them for many years and it used to be good. The last 3 times, however, it has been terrible. If you have it delivered it may take over an hour, they called because they could not find the house. Our house is a single family house on an established street and well numbered. They also...

We just passed by Albany and wasn't expecting such a great Chinese food restaurant. Nice price, nice environment, good service, delicious dishes!

Not the best sushi in Albany. They have slipped over the years. If I am getting delivery I use them because my favorite places do not deliver to me. If you do get delivery plan on 60+ minutes. I have waited 90 before. They have always been accurate, I have always eaten every bite, it just lacks some flavor. I... More

Ichiban isn't particularly great food, but it's cheap and has some decent flavor. They do deliver, which is nice.

Ichiban is one of my favorites. Must try the orange spiced tofu. The quality of food is much better than some of the other places and they are pretty darn quick in getting your food.

Great food at a reasonable price. Good variety on both the Japanese and Chinese selections. We love the chicken teriyaki on a stick appetizer. The kung pao chicken and kung pao lomein are great (we get both extra spicy without peanuts). The sauteed beans and the chicken with eggplant and garlic sauce are also great. Ours is a south-asian palette.
