“Best Authentic Japanese Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is by far the best authentic japanese restaurant. Real japanese chefs honing their craft of fine japanese food. My wife and I eat here every so often on date nights and it's the consistency of flavour, portions and freshness that keeps us returning. Reservations are always needed to ensure you don't end up waiting too long for food that is wonderful. It can get expensive but it is worth it!

“Cozy lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

In Richmond where there are so many huge, sterile eateries, this Steveston Japanese restaurant is a pleasure. They have a wide variety of options for a "set" lunch but we ordered a la carte: veg tempura, light and crisp, Ichiro roll, Steveston roll, Mango roll, Dynamite roll, rainbow roll, and best of all, Unagi Tens roll. Service was prompt and cheerful. Tea was plentiful. Sushi was very fresh and yummy. We had a great lunch with our grand daughter.

“Japanese Food at Its Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a resident of the Steveston area for almost 20 years, I've had a chance to try almost every restaurant in the community. I've been a fan of Ichiro's ever since it opened. The food is always fresh and perfectly prepared, the staff are exceptionally friendly and the prices reasonable. I also suggest reservations to avoid disappointment.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Everything is so fresh and made to order. The tempura is light and crispy, the fish is fresh, and the service is fast and friendly. Great spot - make sure to make a reservation, as it can be very busy.

“Loved it so much that we went twice in a week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

I read about this on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out myself. Wow....I came here earlier this week, and just loved the Sukiyaki Nabe (sliced beef in soup with noodles) that I had to come back a 2nd time this week just to savour it. They serve the freshest salmon sashimi I have ever tasted. They are pricey, but you are also paying for quality.
