When looking for a different sushi restaurant for dinner, we decided to try Ichiban. First, let me say that I honestly hate to diss local restaurants because I know the food business is extremely difficult. Rents are high, good help is difficult to find, attracting loyal customers is equally difficult, etc. But when one travels as much I have done,... More

A satisfying dinner. I had the sashimi (fish without rice). High quality no nonsense but also no flair. The service was quite slow and it was sometimes difficult to get attention.

Unless one simply refuses to get into a vehicle and drive elsewhere, I can’t imagine why anyone would choose this establishment tucked into a strip plaza. It’s not that it’s terrible, because it isn’t that. It’s just so mediocre—food and service. And the entertainment district in Morgan Hill (on Monterey Street)--complete with good restaurants, pubs, and plenty of free parking--is... More

This restaurant used to be so good. I am not sure if they sold or if it was just a really bad night but this place sucks so bad now. The sushi used to be so fresh and the service was excellent but not the sushi tastes old and the service is very so-so. Ordered a crunch roll which was... More

Our family has been coming to Ichiban for more than 15 years. It was for a long time the best restaurant in Morgan Hill. Great quality sushi, creative rolls, friendly staff, warm atmosphere and good service. I guess they just stopped caring.... My wife, 2 adult sons and I ate there last night, what a mess. My first suspicion should... More

We ordered our sushi a certain way and it was not served that way. Speaking with the Sushi Chefs was nearly impossible. I was an OK experience, nothing special. We won't be going back.

The first time I had sushi was at Sushi Ichiban. I didn't really know what to order, but I ended up choosing a roll of sushi with white rice, avocado, and salmon. It tasted AMAZING. I loved how fast my food was ready within. After trying different sushi places, Sushi Ichiban is still my favorite!

We were very pleased with this restaurant. It was quite crowded on the weekday night we visited, but looked worth the 30 minute wait; we were not disappointed. Friendly service and very good food. Extensive menu. An LGB scale train runs around the sushi bar - - fun for kids to watch.

Food and service was very good. Order the Bento Box, quantity was very sufficient and flavorful. I was afraid that the cutesy train at the sushi bar meant poor quality food. No so.

I tried the hand rolls and the sashimi...delicious. Large selection of rolls at very reasonable prices. Good service in a clean facility. I would absolutely return for more good sushi.q
