My Experience
July 13, 2016
“I've been here 3 times and everything down to the service has been great. I'm the kind that’s all about the food, not the show. That's what you get at Ichiban.”

Great Neighborhood Asian / Sushi
August 12, 2015
“A really good Asian sushi restaurant with Vietnamese owners. Serve authentic and delicious Pho. This is a neighborhood restaurant. We see the same patrons there night after night, and it is our first choice when we simply can't think of what to fix for ourselves. Very predictable. Do a great job delivering exactly what they offer.”

I Love Eating Here!!!
August 8, 2015
“I have been coming here for years. I'm not sure why I never wrote a review before now, but I travel so much and go to so many places that it's not always possible to think about writing a review especially about a place I frequent so much. The food here has always been plentiful and delicious. I have ordered a wide variety of the items on the menu, but my personal favorite is the Hibachi Steak with steam rice and chicken soup. I'm not much for Sushi but most of my friends who come here tell me is one of the best anywhere in town. The staff has ALWAYS been very efficient and friendly. This goes for the wait staff, the kitchen, the Sushi Chef, and the owners. They're all wonderful people and it is a pleasure to come here at any time of day or night. I do not hesitate for one moment to highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!”
