Went there with my mom when she was in town visiting, even though i knew she doesn't eat sushi. She loved her dinner anyway. They have a great menu for sushi lovers and those who only like their food cooked. Definitely looking forward to going back!

Three of us visited Ichiban after reading the reviews and hearing good things about it from our friends.

We made dinner reservations ( 8pm-relatively early by Chilean standards) and therefore the restaurant was not at full capacity meaning service was quick at the beginning. Within half an hour the restaurant was full and it wasn't as easy to get the waiter's attention.

The waiters seem to be knowledgable about the menu and can offer advice accordingly which is something that is quite rare in Chile as usually no extra information is given and you are expected to know everything yourself!

When the food arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The portions were just right which was great but more importantly, the food itself was delicious. Much better than a few other Japanese restaurants we have been to in Santiago so we will definitely be visiting Ichiban again.

The atmosphere is great, the service is wonderful, but best of all the food is simply outstanding. Don't miss out on the Roll del Emperador (emperor's roll). My husband is allergic to seafood and there are many delicious options available to him such as chicken and beef teriaki. It;s a great place to go with family or friends.

Excellent sushi. Really original and authentic tasting. Try the sake sour to start. We loved the kyoto roll and the penko roll. Delish! The desserts are really well done as well. The best is the typical Japanese, green tea ice cream; very unique. The waiter was super pro, some of the best customer service we've ever seen in Santiago. A little pricey, but worth it. We'll definitely be going back.

everything, quality, variety, service, decor., freshness, creativity, ambiance, location. Top sushi / sashimi experience at world class level. Number 1 in Santiago by far in my view.
