My wife and I have been coming here since its beginning. Then our grandkids , visitors and friends. The "newbies" who have been afraid of "eating raw fish", have quickly been converted to something new and exotic. Having lived in Japan, I find the American inventiveness works well on the more staid styles of old traditiion. The results are always... More

I was hesitant to eat here because I'm not much into sushi beyond California rolls and tempura but there is a big enough variety that everyone can find something they like. The food came quickly and the presentation is beautiful. You can watch the men preparing the food. The prices are very reasonable. I would definitely eat here again.

We eat here at least once a week for lunch or dinner, since they first opened, and it can't be beat. The food is wonderful, the prices are LOW and the service is actually amazing, lots of staff always. The lunch combo includes 3 items for around 8 bucks! The sushi is good, not gourmet, but considering the prices it... More

Last Friday night, my boyfriend and I dined at Ichiban for dinner. We arrived close to seven and managed to get a table, although there was almost always a crowd waiting to be seated during our visit. It was packed. I had a dinner combo with steak teriyaki and shrimp tempura. My boyfriend had some sashimi and rolls. The food... More

Loved this gem hidden in Glendale. The sushi is super cheap, super fresh, and the staff are amazing. We came here more than anywhere in the time I lived in LA. If you want cheap and different, order the salmon collar. Its usually really cheap, char grilled and served with lemon and a nice ponzu sauce.

Their sushi is not top of the line but pretty good considering the price. There's a list of 50% off sushi to choose from and their albacore sushi salad is awesome. I think service is mediocre though and could use some improvement.

THE worst sushi I've ever eaten. CA rolls taste like they're made with crab-salad. Yuk.
