I've been to this restaurant several times and it is always good. They have an excellent menu for Japanese dining. The sushi is always fresh and very tasty.

Just thinking of Ichibon makes me want to order a fresh Bento box - and I would love some seaweed salad. The service is always friendly. Sure, sometimes it is slower than other times - but I have not had a bad experience here. Wife likes this place so, why not bring the family in? We do enjoy it. Not... More

Too busy, too loud, too dirty, too average. Low rent sushi place to avoid unless you're a redneck from east Texas then I guess it's okay.

I ordered the teriyaki chicken, it was a little rubbery. The veggies and rice were delicious. The cook was very entertaining and talented! Great fun. I was here with a training group, the company hosting the training paid for the meal, so I am unsure of the cost.

Went to Ichibon for my daughter’s eighth birthday.  Like most kids, she really enjoys watching the food being prepared in front of her and the shows/tricks the hibachi chefs employ to entertain their customers.  Ichibon is a fun place, but it is a bit dark inside and was a little chilly with the AC on us.  On a beautiful Saturday...

The bento boxes are awesome - especially the teriyaki salmon ($8.95). Comes with a fresh salad topped with ginger dressing, miso soup, two pieces of a sushi roll, rice, tempura vegetables, and a desert dumpling. Fills me up. They have 5-6 other assorted bento boxes to choose from - beef, chicken, sashimi to mention a few. Foods are alway the... More

We have been going to Ichibon in Kemah for many years and are always pleased with the service and the food. Sushi/Sashimi is always fresh and the servers are always friendly. If you want a consistent and fresh meal, this is the place!

I've visited this restaurant only three times. This year "2016, only once. I enjoy sushi and the artistic details usually given to the dish which is lacked here. Please note if you visit Ichibon, not every roll is presented on the menu. (You can ask for it.). The price is basically the norm for all surrounding sushi spots. The restaurant... More

This was my first time at a Japanese eatery and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The host was very helpful in selecting food. The experience of the chef cooking at the table (hibachi) was amazing. I recommend this to everyone who visits the area. I haven't' visited another Hibachi grill, so cannot comment on the expertise level, but what I heard... More

Ordered sashimi...salmon, roe and tamago with edamame and vegetables. Was able to eat gluten free but no soy sauce. Good big portion. Decent average American sushi. No an epicurean experience though. I would come back if I just wanted a meal.
