“Nothing Spectacular”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Ichiban isn't particularly great food, but it's cheap and has some decent flavor. They do deliver, which is nice.

“Love the food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Ichiban is one of my favorites. Must try the orange spiced tofu. The quality of food is much better than some of the other places and they are pretty darn quick in getting your food.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Great food at a reasonable price. Good variety on both the Japanese and Chinese selections. We love the chicken teriyaki on a stick appetizer. The kung pao chicken and kung pao lomein are great (we get both extra spicy without peanuts). The sauteed beans and the chicken with eggplant and garlic sauce are also great. Ours is a south-asian palette.

“Excellent variety, quality, service, value”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Had been there years ago with the neighbors, just for sushi. Last month went again for fathers day, this time got a "box" with gyoza, negamaki, salmon katsu, and more. Seared tuna appetizer was excellent, cold seaweed salad made my wife very happy.
Menu has lots of choices, chinese and japanese inspired. Inside is nice and comfortable, lots of room so even with a moderate crowd you have privacy. Staff was very attentive, food was all good.
Looking forward to next chance to go there.

They have two locations, downtown Albany and Guilderland (Western Ave). Very reasonable prices, tasty food, our choice for takeout.
