bland and gross! terrible service – Don't be lure in by half price rolls on Monday and Tuesday! They're not worth it. If you look at the other reviews, that's why people like place. My wife and I have had sushi all over Salt Lake City and this was by far the most disappointing. After waiting for over an hour to get our sushi, it was not tasty and very boring. So we decided to try their signature roll which was the most expensive roll on the menu. We were trying to give them the benefit of the doubt by hoping we had just ordered some of their less impressive rolls. We were wrong! Gross!

Don't go here. The only reason I think this place does decent business is because the location is very hip and cool. It looks like a converted old southern style church-house. Very cool. But if you have any ability to recognize good vs. bad sushi, you will hate this place

Absolute worst sushi in Utah – For being in a really cool location it is the worst sushi restaurant in the entire valley. Yes, that includes grocery store sushi and all-you-can-eat joints. The fish is so far from fresh, it's a wonder people haven't gotten sick. Or perhaps they have but are too sick to write a review?

We have tried this place several times only to be suckered in by half price happy hour. Save your money and your stomache. Go somewhere, anywhere, else.

Yum! – Patio was very relaxing and provided a nice ambiance. You have to ask about the off the menu specials, like the hamachi comma (sp?) we had which was SO tasty. Two thumbs up.

Don't Eat Here!! – Sushi was average. Management and service were laughable. This was my first and will be my last experience at Ichiban. It was a friends birthday and were looking forward to a great experience, what we did get is a very long wait for food and as soon as we did get our sushi she asked if we wanted desserts because the kitchen is closing. We love sushi and have tried many places in Salt Lake. So many restaurants get it right here in SLC, Ichiban is not one of them!

Ichiban - just ok – My experience at Ichiban was mediocre at best. The menu had a lot of speciality rolls. I ordered the Jazz roll - which was pretty good. I also ordered a Salmon roll - which I don't think had much salmon at all. It was almost all rice. I also ordered a rainbow roll that has crab inside - it was rather dry.

The service was attentive and ambience was unique being located in a former church.

Ichiban is nothing great but is worth a try if only for the ambience.

Great specials – The outdoor dining is great and the specials on mon-tues are definitely a bonus

Overall the sushi is good but not amazing. Most of the rolls are the usual with nothing really a standout on the rolls - BUT the sea bass cheek appitizer - YUMMY!! It is a must try. Very white and delicate with tremendous flavor.

It can have a wait on friday and saturday night.

The ambiance is good as it is an old, converted church with beautful stained glass windows.

NO THANKS – Umm Ichiban is not as good as it used to be. They still have excellent service in a beautiful environment but the sushi is mediocre at best. We even had to send back a roll because it tasted fishy - I mean it tasted off. Eww. We should have gone to Takashi which has crappy service but incredible sushi...

FISHY – I know I am going to eat sushi, but i have always know that fish is bad when it taste like you are eatting fish. every thrid bite taste like fish which means the fish was old. If you are willing to take a chance go ahead but I have had better sushi in Salt Lake.
