Fabulous Sushi Rolls & Soup, Great Presentation & Attentive Staff

The sushi rolls here are enormous and loaded with thick pieces of fish! We ordered 4 rolls (32 pieces) and absolutely had to take out the remaining 11 pieces to our daughter who lives nearby. We had the volcano roll, rainbow roll, spicy yellowtail roll, and a special named beauty and the beast! All... read more

A large group was served to an enjoyable evening of BBQ meats and fun. The meats came ready to wrap into lettuce with condiments. Large table service can be challenging but our server was a pro.

By far the best, freshest sushi in Hartford. The owners also have some wonderful Korean dishes if you want to jump out of the box. The prices are fair and the service is wonderful. You can't go wrong with this place that's been in Hartford for over 20 years

I'm no authority on either Japanese or Korean food, but I do know good service. Ichiban is a warm and welcoming place with a very relaxed, peaceful feel. Nice aquarium. Good dumplings and shrimp tempura. Very reasonable prices.

We decided to come to this place after seeing all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Although we were told to wait twenty minutes, we actually were seated in around ten. With our selections, my parents and my sister received salads while I took some miso soup. In addition, we were served a variety of Korean starters like kimchi. The maki... More

On my last visit, I had the sashimi bi bim bop. What a great presentation of colors and flavors. I've also had their dol sot bi bim bop and bul gogi. I've never been dissapointed while dining in this establishment. I've brought a couple of people here who had never eaten Korean food and they both enjoyed their dishes.

My wife and I visited Ichiban Japanese & Korean Restaurant on Friday, January 31, 2014. We arrived at the restaurant around 6 PM, and parking was almost nonexistent. We were fortunate to get the last spot in a small lot at the rear of the building. The restaurant was crowded when we entered, but we were promptly seated. My wife... More
