“Great food, odd service”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The food is amazing and the sushi in particular was quite good. Though it may sound odd for a sushi restaurant, I recommend the onion rings. I haven't had onion rings in probably 10 years, but something urged me to try them. They were amazing.

The only drawback was the disconnect between such exquisite cuisine and the young, casual service. Even though we came for lunch, I felt their attire and manner a bit to informal and detached despite there being relatively few other customers in the restaurant.

“skilled sushi chef”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

What impressed me most was that with all of the fish dishes on the menu, you did not smell fish upon entering. That's a sign of freshness! The entrees and sushi were perfectly done and the setting was comfortable.

The food here is very good, excellent sushi too. This is a small restaurant, you may have to make a reservation or wait a little at peak times.

“Fresh Chirashi”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Ichikawa is the only sushi restaurant for 40 miles, so Port Townsend sushi lovers are grateful that they take great care in their food and service. I have eaten at Ichikawa several times now, and always seem to order the same thing - chirashi. A substantial bowl of sushi rice covered with an assortment of sashimi that changes with what is freshest that day. I'm sure there are many more Ichikawa chirashis in my future.
