“A Cozy Sushi Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We always visit this establishment when we are in the area. The dining area is small, about 4 tables for 4 and 5 tables for 2 and a sushi bar for 8+. It gets crowded at prime times for lunch and dinner. We arrived about 1:30 PM on a Monday for lunch & there were about 6 tables occupied so we sat at the bar (only 3 seats occupied). The sushi is always fresh & prices are great! The miso soup is always hot and tasty. We had the sashimi (3 tuna & 3 salmon) and California/Eel sushi (6pcs each) lunch specials for $7.95 and the shrimp tempura cones. The shrimp tempura was crispy & not oily. The sashimi were nicely sized and the sushi had plenty of filing. All were delicious. Until next time.

“Good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I was here with my boss and a few coworkers for lunch the other day and of course we all had sushi. Service was good but the sushi was very good. It was not the best I have ever had but I would get the sushi again

“Tiny gem of a sushi restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Not posh, not fancy but not expensive either for sushi. The place is always bustling with diners and with take-out! I haven't really found an all time favorite yet, but I like the tiny atmosphere. I will go again and again.

“Best sushi in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The two brothers that own Ichiban are brilliant. The run a tight ship and the sushi, etc., is always top notch. Inside is small, but gives it that feeling of how in demand the place really is. It is a must stop.
