A daring claim, but one of my absolute favorite sushi places in the US. When I would visit my grandparents, they would always bring us here, so there's some sentimental value to the place. I've been coming to this place for the last 15 years or so. As one restaurant in the mall strip, the exterior and interior is simple... More

We ordered a few dishes which were a mix of positive, passable and horrible. The eel-avocado-cucumber roll was good but pretty sloppily made. Not what I expected for that price. We also had the miso butterfish, where the fish was fairly good, and came with some decent rice but also had a side salad and miso soup that were horrendously... More

The facility was older, many locals were enjoying the food, service was good, it was the best baked lobster roll I've ever eaten. Excellent!

Ichiban restaurant is a neighborhood establishment that caters mostly to the local clientele. The sushi is always fresh and the service is good however they were starting to look a little run down. They have recently renovated the interior and the place looks very nice these days. Great place to meet family and friends

Dinner is served from 5-9p.m. A wide assortment of various Japanese dishes. The Yosenabe was a nice big serving and the pork cutlet assortment was nice also- a lot... More
