Our son came over last minute and wanted Japanese food..Ichima is the closest to us without going into Little Tokyo. Upon arriving we had to wait approximately 10 minutes. Once seated our drinks were served. Miso soup is an option. My son likes rolls, he had a rainbow, crunch, and tuna roll. All came at different times, they were mediocre.... More

We arrived at the restaurant ahead of the lunch crowd and even though many customers were coming in the service was great. The fish was fresh and the specialty rolls were all good except the salmon skin roll. Because it was from a lunch menu special, we were able to feed 8 people for about $160! Good food for a... More

We usually dine here for birthday celebrations but our last visit, it was quite disappointing as the quality of the food has gone downhill. We were disappointed in the cold beef that's usually warm when it arrives to your table (can't remember name of dish) and the meal was not memorable as previous visits. I did enjoy the crab hand...

I agree with the other reviews that mentioned great service. Rarely have I see such team work and attention to detail. All of the dishes were great and well prepared. We went on a Friday at 11:30 and we were lucky to get a table.

I just came here today for lunch. Once again, the sushi was deliciously fresh. However, I am heart-broken because of the pending change of ownership. One of my favorite sushi chef is leaving, the other one is not sure if he is staying. Truly a sad day for me.

The Service: SUPER attentive from ALL staffs. It didn't seem like there is one specific server for each table? Because more than one servers would come to our table and asked the same questions, "Would you like to order something to drink? or Are you ready to order?" They do have many staffs on duty & walk around the restaurant,... More

One of my favorite local Japanese restaurants in the Pasadena area. Their pricing is fair for the amount of food you get. I particularly like their A,B,C menu picking 2 or 3 items of one each from A B or C. 2 items $8.95, 3 items $10.95. Sushi and sashimi included. At lunch it is even a better bargain. Even... More

We visited on Friday for an engagement dinner and our party was seated quickly and the wait staff was very attentive. They were quick to bring out food for our baby first to make sure she ate on time. They also were very good about coming by to check on drinks etc. We must have put in orders at 5... More

This is our sushi bar. We go here at least once a week. The service here are very personal and attentive. Fish are fresh and the portions are decent. If you like simple common sushi/sashimi like the usual yellow tail, salmon, tuna, halibut, etc.. you will do fine here. Just don't order anything exotic. Owner is very nice, and the... More
