Top value and quality. You have to try very hard not to like this Sushi resturant. Lots of regulars means reliable quality and service

I love sushi. Really. I LOVE it. But I think that if I had had sushi for the first time at Ichiban, I would never have had it again. My boyfriend and I, who eat sushi at least once a month, more often if we've...More

All-you-can-eat sushi, and very good quality at that. They have teppanyaki too.
