Tucked away on Queen Street, a step away from Primark and next on Argyll Street, this restaurant has become a firm favourite. Always consistently good, the sushi is always fresh, the staff cheerful and the menu varied. It's also excellent value for money compared to the big Japanese restaurants.

I'm a big fan of the bento boxes if you want to try everything on offer!

There's a super value lunch menu which feature smaller lunch-sized portions: a great way to try something light and new.

great tasty food at reasonable prices, can order some sushi, ramen and dumplings which would be 3x the price in a YO-sushi joint. Good little city centre place for japanese/S.E. Asian food

Lunch time deal at Ichiban is £4.95 for a main course from 1-4pm. Good value considering portion size and selection of noodles and curries.

I ordered sushi from the regular menu, which was excellent. Perfectly rolled and served with soy sauce, wasabi and raw salmon. Price for sushi was reasonable, more so than popular restaurant YO! Sushi.

Drinks were on average £2.10 - pricey but expected in the city centre.

Only thing lacking was atmosphere. With news on the television and seating like a school canteen restaurant felt cramped.

Service was fairly good, quick to be seated but staff mostly stood at bar and it was hard to get their attention without walking up to it. However food and drinks were served quickly.

Overall nice for a quick lunch and good value for an alternative lunch in the city centre.

Been coming to this restaurant for many years and much prefer it to the other japanese ones. Only thing is that the food portion and sizes seems to keep shrinking and the prices keep going up. Wouldnt mind as much if the price stayed the same. Nevertheless the food and staff is still great so will continue to go...
