Discover this hidden gem on the southside of Indy. I found out about Ichiban when we had a family reunion several years ago and all the sushi lovers met here for lunch. Don't let the strip mall it's located in fool you, once you walk in, you'll see it has a fine dining atmosphere, but still okay for casual dinners... More

Our group ordered 5 sushi options and 3 entrees. Everything from from the fresh brewed green tea to the tuna sushi was prepared fresh and served promptly. I highly recommend Ichiban.

My wife and I went for lunch and sat at the sushi bar watching the chefs prepare food. They talked to us while they worked. We each ordered a lunch special and decided next time we will order only one and split as there was a lot of food and it was delicious.

A group of friends met at Ichiban for a "Chef's Choice" dinner. The service and food could only be described as specular. The star of the evening was a huge fresh scallop served on its shell with sauce and transparent noodles. The decor of the restaurant is beautifully done. I couldn't have been happier with the evening.

My daughter loves this place, so we eat here fairly often. The crazy roll is my favorite, but there are very few rolls I don't like. Service is good and staff are friendly.

First, I will admit that I am a late comer to the sushi brigade and usually like my fish cooked. Having said that, based on my beloved's love of sushi and her reactions, this was pretty darn good stuff. Being somewhat vanilla as a neophyte sushi eater, I opted for the Philadelphia roll. Hard to go wrong with smoked salmon... More

The food here is always fine and the service is good. Good selection of Japanese beers, Sushi and Sashimi dishes are always good. We have been here several times and never had any complaints. Sushi is usually pretty expensive no matter where you go so instead of ordering per piece, just order one of their platters or bento boxes and... More

My husband and I went earlier today. It wasn't busy and we were seated immediately. My husband got the Pad Thai and I got clear soup, house salad and we ordered three sushi rolls to share - Spicy Salmon roll, L.L. roll and the Dynamite roll. The food came out fairly quickly, but after our food was brought out it... More

We went to dinner tonight at Ichiban. We ordered spicy salmon rolls, spicy tuna rolls, california rolls, shrimp tempura roll, and a dream roll. We also had chicken pad thai, teriyaki beef, and general tso's chicken. The place was busy and we waited a few minutes to be seated but nothing unexpected. We were all looking forward to the food...
