Fantastic Sushi!

The sushi is great!!! Haven't tried any other food because I just love it! Staff is really friendly and attentive. Although not cheap, but sushi isn't usually cheap. Atmosphere could be a little better, it's a little empty and not as 'homey' but it is very clean and modern. I need my sushi fix soon!

The selection is not bad for this area.The service was good. The prices ridiculous. Way over priced for what was served.

When this restaurant opened under a different name (and different ownership I believe), I was so happy to have sushi available in Freeport. Food was good, service was good, price was good. Our one (AND I CAN GUARANTEE ONLY) trip to the current restaurant was terrible. High prices for small, terrible sushi. We were actually worried we were going to... More

This place is very unique as I believe it's the only sushi place in Freeport. AND it is fantastic sushi! Open 7 days a week. They also offer oriental dinners (like teriyaki meat, bento boxes, fried rice, miso soup) for those who aren't into sushi. We like the veg sushi - avocado, cucumber, etc. The staff is very friendly.

We love the service, the food and the great decor. Don't let the outside fool you. The interior is very nice. If you like Japanese cuisine you absolutely must try Ichiban. The portions are large and prices are fair. I enjoyed it very much. I've been to pricier places and they can't hold a candle. If you have ever been... More

My husband and I have a private joke, that is really a sad indication of what happens to food places in Freeport: "better go there before it closes". We REALLY hope that Ichiban is successful and that we will have many more opportunties to sample their cuisine. It is the ONLY place that offers fresh Sushi and Sashimi in the... More
