My husband and I have been eating here at least once a week for 9 years. We love it. The food is great, the service is wonderful. Lots and lots of people come here regularly.

“Our Favorite!!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is our favorite sushi restaurant in Winston salem and we have tried them all. Quality is top notch. The gyoza dumplings are the best I've ever had. The staff is fun and friendly and always takes time to get to know their customers. Food, esp sushi, is so good that even people who aren't "sushi people" will find it fantastic and might just find a love for sushi they never knew they had. Our favorite nigiri is the BBQ eel. Our favorite nori maki is the Dragon Roll and the Sakura Roll. The Dragon Roll contains BBQ eel,avacado,tempura shrimp and crab mix. Make sure to have the waitress bring a side of Lobster Sauce and a side of Gyoza Sauce for dipping. The Sakura Roll contains tempura eel,salmon,shrimp,white tuna,cucumber,avacado and cream cheese. The both are well priced at$10.95 and both rolls contain nice sized portions. The nigiri BBQ eel prices at $4.00 for 2 pieces and they
are worth every penny. Our other favorite is the Yum Yum Roll. Priced at $10.95, Yum Yum contains tuna,salmon,yellow tail,cream cheese and the entire roll is deep fried and served with a seaweed salad. The seaweed salad is not my particular favorite but we have many friends who LOVE it! Great place,great food,great location,great experience. We eat here at least once a month and will be back again and again.

“Great feed for the money”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

When deciding where to go out I must meet the criteria of good and healthy. Add budget and look no further than this place. I typically order seaweed salad, miso soup, and some assorted sushi to get my family started. Then we get two or three entrees depending on how hungry to crew is...portions are very generous. Most entrees come with choice of soup or salad so we get plenty of fresh made, healthy food and the best part is that all of this plus tip is usually less than $40!

Ichiban is definitely on the frequent visit list.
