First time you look for it, Ichiban can be hard to spot as from the street it's a blink-and-you-miss-it neon sign above a door. But you won't regret the search.
Great flavours and just streets ahead in terms of offering delicious, Japanese food. The open kitchen means you can see that it's all freshly-prepared to order too. We started going here as a couple, and now take our 8 and 2 year-olds, who are made very welcome and who are also huge enthusiasts. In all these years, we've never had a bad meal there. I'd recommend the bento box for a taste of everything, but the sushi and noodle dishes are also fabulous.
You can't book, so you just pitch up and get fitted in. But we've never been unlucky.
