Good dinner

I took my family to ichiban cafe for dinner. The decor is unpretentious but pleasant. We were seated right away. The waiter was very nice and was working really hard. I ordered the shrimp bento dinner and it was excellent. My wife and son order sushi and they reported that it was very good. All in... read more

We love this place and visit at least twice per month. There seems to be a million sushi choices in the area and after trying them all this is the place we come back to. We've always had good service so clearly we had a different experience than some of the prior reviewers. This place also does quiet a busy... More

I probably visit Ichiban Cafe once a month, or every other month, and I am always satisfied with my meal. They have a small vegetarian portion on the menu which I order from, (the schezuan string beans are my favorite) but they have a variety of other foods, soups, and sushi to choose from. The bubble tea is great, and... More

Worst service I've ever received. I stopped in while my girlfriend was shopping at carters next door. Initially I wanted to take it "to go" after thinking about it I figured I should eat in. So after the order came out I told them I don't need a bag I will just eat and go back over to carters. The... More

Some things to know: The Sushi is good. I personally have a thing for their Volcano Roll! Services is awesome. I discovered it through process of elimination back in June of 2013. I'm so glad I did. They have the best General Tso's Tofu with brown rice I've ever tasted! If in Columbia, MD, and want delicious authentic - A... More

Stumbled upon this place while trying the Tutti Frutti yogurt next door. Much to my boyfriend's surprise, they serve Bubble Tea, which he hasn't had for years! It was superb and we've been regular customers ever since! Tasty menu and excellent service! Highly recommended!

We went their for our anniversary. It was just on the brink of getting crowed. We travel all over the world and eating is one of our favorite pleasures. Well we read a review on this restaurant. Well we were wrong, the woman seemed rude and no eye contact, that is so important to us. Service for the whole meal... More

Food is OK, nothing great, not to bad. Prices are OK, Sushi is actually good. BUT, the Mamma San that runs the place is one mean SOB. She will school your a** if you ask for something wrong. Like water, she will charge you for the use of the glass.... She'd one mean mamma jamma, she tries to manipulate customers... More

I love taking my girls out to Ichiban. It is a small Sushi/Chinese place in the commercial area of Columbia. The food is delicious for the price. We have tried different rolls and non have disappointed. My favorite on the chinese food menu side is the chicken with broccoli. Give it a try if you are in the area.

The service is slow and the staff are very unprofessional. Even though there were only 2 other occupied tables at 1:00 PM, we were ignored and nobody brought us water for several minutes. We were in a hurry so we decided instead to have take-out. Then they said we had to use a different menu. When we paid the cashier... More
