I LOVE the bento box with salmon teriyaki. The california rolls are the best I have had. Friendly, welcoming staff and decent prices. LOVE the outside seating, wish there was more. My only complaint is the parking. Hard to get in/out if there is a...More

Japanese food is my absolute favorite. I've been eating sushi for over 35+ years; 1 year here. I found the environment and food to be well worth many return trips. My brother doesn't like sushi, but the 3 times he's eaten here he has found...More

If you want a fabulous meal and the best crab tacos, yes crab tacos. The tempura batter and fry eggplant for the shell and fill with the best crab filling. Every sushi roll I've eaten has been great. Sometimes they have great live music. Good...More

I had never been here and don't consider myself and expert sushi consumer, but I know what I like. This place has a wide variety from mild to spicy with several different creations.

We ate at Izakaya Ichiban as a family and had several sushi rolls and edamame. Service was friendly and the food came quickly. The maki plate was good (had salmon, yellow tail and tuna rolls, at $14 very reasonable). The rainbow roll was also decent....More

I cannot say enough about this place. I go here fairly regularly because the sushi just can't be beat. The Chico roll and the Energy roll are maybe my favorite sushi rolls I've ever had. Plus the Japanese tacos are to die for!! I didn't...More

If not the best, then it is a close 2nd (you can guess which one may be slightly better). This location is small but open with tall standing-up tables and regular tables with bench and chair seating. The sushi and sashimi variety is excellent and...More
