Good honest Japanese food in this Wagamama style restaurant. Nice portion size and a good selection of the classics. The decor was very tired but it's due to be refurbished next week so I look forward to going back to see the fresh decor and enjoy the food again.

I've been here many times and even on a busy Friday lunch time, I have never been disappointed! Service is quick and makes sure you feel welcomed and have everything you need! The food is absolutely delicious! Even if you have to wait a few minutes, it is worth it! Definitely recommend!

First visit here but wasn't disappointed. My friend chose it and I'm glad she did. Great atmosphere. Large selection on the menu at great prices. The food was very tasty, especially the teriyaki squid. The staff were very attentive and friendly.

Went there for the first time for lunch and it was wonderful. The food is just out of this world. Cannot wait to go back (will need to brush up on my chop stick skills lol). You will not be disappointed. Can definitely recommend the Katsui Chicken Curry. Awesome!!

It's great to have a noodle bar on your doorstep and even better if it's Ichiban ... who provide a wonderful lunch menu (main + side) for £8.70. Work colleagues and I visited Ichiban today ... the staff easily and cheerfully seated our party of nine ... served us promptly ... and ensured our visit was the best it could... More

We ordered two katsu bento and sushi platter. The katsu was ok but instead of curry we had HP sauce, hmmm... The sushi tasted great, can't complain there... But! We both suffered an upset stomach after eating there a couple of hours later. This is my second visit, but I don't think I'll be coming back.

Ichiban is a restaurant I have wanted to visit for a long time and I finally got around to trying it out one day for dinner. Located right in the heart of Glasgow's shopping district, it is a excellent place to go to for a different kind of meal when out and about in Glasgow. At first glance the entrance... More

Popped in for lunch as I hadn't visited in a long time. If you haven't been before , don't expect anything too fancy décor wise. But don't be put off the food is excellent & that is obvious with the number of customers there. I went for the Chicken Yakisoba - char grilled chicken with noodles. It was absolutely delicious...

Do not be put off by external impressions. Located above a busy street you enter into s cantina style set up that initially may feel a bit dingy. But the restaurant is clean then menu is great and the office for what you get is fab. The sushi is excellent and interesting and the noodle soups are amazing. Feels very... More
