Not fancy but you don't go for the looks, YOU GO FOR THE FOOD

I've been here several times, mostly by myself. The restaurant itself is pretty plain jane, but the service and the food is outstanding.

We both love sushi and sashimi. We have been to many sushi joints and only a handful are worth revisiting. This is definitely one of them! We had the Shaggy Dog, the Orange Dragon, and the Snow Crab. I couldn't tell you which one was my favorite as they were all so very good. We also had the Sashimi B... More

menu has been expanded, the food is good, but be prepared to spend at least $20 each person in order to be satisfied. I think that the food price has gone up 25% at least, I don't remember ever spending that much for lunch. Consequently, we only come on special occasions now.

Located in a retail strip center, this is a small Mom and Pop type restaurant. The care they put into the food, service and cleanliness is obvious. I stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed the bento box special that included soup, salad (tasty dressing), 3 pieces sashimi, a roll, vegetable tempura and rice. It was a lot of... More

Ichiban is our home away from home. We started coming here regularly after Chef Allen took over early this year. We are treated like family and have always had excellent meals here. The sushi is always FRESH and the rolls are creative. The new tatami room is so much fun and the kids love it. We like the lunch specials... More

Ichiban is locally owned. Quality has always been high. I think ownership may have recently changed, but the food have been consistently good. The udon is excellent and sushi is creative.

Once again another great food experience with fresh fish, fresh flavors, and nice presentations. This brings me back everytime! We had 6 different rolls that included chef specials. The place is always very clean and always receive excellent service.

This was a good experience-had eaten one other time-the service and wait were not really what I would consider but it covered the need-the food quality and quanity were good.

Had some great udon, and the broth had to have been homemade. Sushi was generous, and the presentation was good. Beer was expensive ($12 for a draft Kirin)!
