Where to start? First I'm wondering HOW they got anything more than zero stars. Ordered chicken, rice and soup for lunch. Waaaaay overpriced at 8.95 for what I got, which wasn't even edible. 8 little strips of dried out, old chicken teriyaki, two small pieces of nasty cabbage, rice uninspired, soup INEDIBLE. I'm not even sure if it's real chicken... More

On my latest visit to Portland we (daughter & son-in-law) went for sushi, it was excellent. Service was good, not great but the chef is welcoming to all and we were treated to a free appetizer to go with our delicious Plum wine. We ordered a variety of sushi and a tempura plate. All were excellent. Thought it was a... More

We eat here about 6-8 times a year. Usually they are very good. Tonight the fish was not fresh, the beef was rotten and the service was worse. Nobody refilled our water because nobody came to check on us. It took them 25 minutes to get our check. They seemed much more talkative and attentive to their regular customers, asking... More

Although the atmosphere is modest this is some of the best sushi, sashimi, and especially tempura I've had. The prices are great too. Around $12-$15 each will get you a really fantastic dinner. I would only think the service could be a little more friendly and it would be perfect. The chef is super friendly, the the head waitress always... More

We've been coming here for 10 years, as it is the best restaurant we've found within 10 minutes of our home. Every time, we've had an excellent meal. The teriyaki chicken and tempura was much loved by our son, a picky eater in his youth. They make me California rolls with real crab and the ginger is not died pink.... More

Independant restaurants like this have closed all over town, but not Ichiban. Their food is well prepared and fresh. The tempura is light and their sushii chef is friendly and does a good job.Everything from their rolls to their dinners are very good! Try the Dynamite Roll for a hot delicious treat!

My kids likes this restaurant. They said the Yakisoba is really good. I love the place but the prices is a little bit high in my opinion.

We suspect the owners of Ichiban and Mio Sushi crossed paths at some point in their culinary past. Many of the sushi (names and content) are similar, if not identical. The prices are a tad bit higher, the sushi rolls a tad bit smaller, but nonetheless, this is still a good place to go for Japanese food that won't break... More

Ichiban is a little gem tucked away in a larger mall on Cornell Road, not far from Murray Rd. The resaturant is sinmple but pleasant and probably has the best sushi for some distance around. Prices are OK, although their special rolls can get a bit expensive. Basics like seeweed salad, hamachi sashimi and more common sushi dishes are all... More
