A Sushi Gem

A wonderful place to fix that sushi craving. I love sitting at the sushi bar and watching the chef's prepare the dishes.

I can't believe I lived here four years and just now tried this out! Their sushi was wonderful, and I truly enjoyed my experience. The servers were attentive and friendly, my food came out quickly, and I plan to go back!

This is my favorite sushi place in Old Town for the food. The atmosphere seriously lacks ambience but it is rarely crowded, even when the rest of King St. Is packed. I usually get delivery these days and it is wonderful... $1 charge is unnecessary but the food (I almost always get the sushi combo) is really good. It is... More

My husband and I stopped in here late one night and we were starving! We ordered a bunch of different rolls and they were absolutely amazing! We ordered the black dragon roll, volcano roll, eel roll, hairy mexican, mackerel, and rock and roll... all were delicious. It was a little pricey but definitely worth it. We would definitely go back!

We had a large selection of sushi on a tray to start. The soup was hot and delicious. 2 ordered Pad Thai which was good but not particularly outstanding. The chicken dishes were better. Overall, our group enjoyed our visit. The waitstaff was friendly and quick. Parking can be difficult on King St.

Went with three friends and we all have different tastes... two who do not eat Sushi. Everyone was happy with their selections. Two got sushi and enjoyed it, one got a tempura dish, and the other a teriyaki chicken. Lunch prices were reasonable, and the service was very good and friendly.

If you love sushi, you will love Ichiban Sushi House! The sushi menu is very diverse, with some very creative and tasty special rolls. Our favorites are the Victoria's Secret Roll, wrapped in pink seaweed, and the Volcano Roll. No matter what you order, it will be fresh and delicious! The sushi chefs are very friendly, as are the wait... More

We arrived 7:30 PM as a party of two on a Tuesday night and were seated immediately by very friendly waitstaff. I requested hot tea and was treated to the best tea experience of my life...even including "high tea" at expensive restaurants. The restaurant has a lovely proprietary flower blend served in a glass tea pot over a warming candle.... More

A word of warning if you are a party of two call for a reservation. We got here at 6:30 and there were only a few people in the restaurant. We asked for a bigger table since we were being seated in a 2 seat table. We requested it due to the volume of food we usually order. We were... More
