Nice cozy little place on a strip mall. A small bowl of miso soup and side lettuce salad w/ ginger dressing was served before our meal. Probably the best tempura I've ever had in any Asian restaurant (I like the panko breading they use); served...nice and hot off the press! The variety of sushi appetizers and hand rolls were great too! The chicken teriyaki was on the bland side (it seemed pre-cooked and lathered with sauce as an after-thought). Both portions and price were decent. Server during our visit was on the snooty side.More

Decided to give them a try since they are fairly local. Small restaurant. The layout puts the sushi bar out of sight and in the back. Ambiance: Fairly generic look. Nothing special. It was a tad dated, but clean. Staff: We were there on a...Wednesday evening and we were only the third table there. So service was quick and efficient. Quality: The portions were tight, concise and the fish was fresh. So you'll definitely need to spend more to feel satiated. I ordered sushi regular with one piece of Ikura and one spicy tuna hand roll. Not really sure I would return. Not because they are bad, but because there are other better sushi restaurants.More

You won't find funky rolls and all the bells and whistles you'll find at new-age sushi restaurants here. These guys use quality products and give you well-portioned dishes. Offers a wide variety of food (more than just sushi) and it also can't hurt that these...guys have been in business for about 20 years now in the SAME location! This is traditional Japanese food, and you won't regret this establishment. Grew up in the area and have been coming here for about as long as they've been in business....don't miss out!More

My business is very close to this restaurant.. Many times I have little time to waste and they are always super fast. I tried just about every roll and they are excellent. I took my husband couple of times to eat lunch with me and...service was great.More

This place is a great stop for lunch. They have lunch specials which are reasonable. For example I got soup, salad and two sushi rolls for 9 dollars, not too shabby.

Wanted to try out a new place, definitely won't return. Also service was slow. Smelly atmosphere and not an appetizing smell. Small portions. Only one server for whole joint when we were there. Difficulty even getting a refill on water.

Located in a strip mall, Ichiban serves pristinely fresh sushi, but for me the real stars are the delicious pork goyoza and tempura fried shrimp with Japanese curry. It is marvelous.
