Empty stomach empty wallet – The prices were not good at all. I know sushi is supposed to be on the pricier side so you expect to pay more than you would at a burger joint, however, you are still supposed to pay for quality. The quality was very poor. Nothing special, many of the flavors were imbalanced or under seasoned. The service was fine, the actual venue was nice, but the food was really not worth $55 for 3 rolls, each the shape and size of one of those long tootsie rolls, cut in half. It was a wonder how they got them so small. The rice was dry and our vegas roll even fell apart, and it was held together with tempura, really? Explain that to me.
In summation, we left early because it wasn't worth our money to continue spending money in order to fill ourselves with poor sushi.
pretty good price and pretty good sushi – i've gotta say i'm a bit of sushi snob so i have a pretty high stnadard. Itchiban was pretty good. i luv the interior of the restaurant, very cute. overall pretty good and fair priced.
GREAT FOOD and SERVICE – I love sushi recently and this my place,with great prices and even better service.definitely recommending!!
GREAT!!!!!! – Great place and not expensive,real pros.Recomending to all sushi funs and good restaurants fans,100 % clean,kind service.!!!!
The Best By For – The Appetizers are SO goood. The Tuna Briand is to Die for. If you have a date that is a little shy toward the "rawer fish" type tasting sushi, have her try the Smoked Squid Salad. The Squid is sweet, kinda looks and taste like slices of mango. Very highly recommended, (from me) ;) The mussel shooters and baked mussels are very yummy too. The Chocolate Sushi (only made sometimes), Blissful.
We Love Ichiban! – The kobe beef appetizer was fantastic! We like to sit at the sushi bar and let the chefs create rolls for us. There are also plenty of really good dishes for non sushi people. I suggest you go early on Monday and Tuesday because they fill up fast.
Best Sushi In Town! – Me and my friends ate at Ichiban last night. OH MY GOD! It was such a great experience. The vegan curry croquette was do die for, the sushi was the freshest we have had in a long time, and the home-made apple dessert we had was something I will talk about for a while. The service was very friendly and helped my friend navigate the sake list. We had a great time, and cant wait to go back!
Yuk! Sushi was dry and skimpy! – We used to come here years ago and it was nice atmosphere and we probably didn't know sushi very well. We went back there last night and the sushi was laughable. It was dry, tasteless and very little. The Jazz roll, which was $13, probably had about $2 worth of fish on it. Really disappointing. My husband ordered the Salmon Sashimi 5 piece, which was $15. We just couldn't help but laugh when it came. It was rolled up like a flower, but it was a tiny flower that a honey bee might land on! He at it in 2 bites. I bet the fish cost less than a few dollars.
We will never go there again. Save your money and try some of the smaller scale sushi places that are authentic.
Good Sushi – We went to Ichiban to try our the half off rolls on Monday and Tuesday nights. The rolls were tasty, but the service was so slow. The place wasnt even that busy when we showed up at 6PM. We had a party of 8 and we didnt have a reservation because we planned to get together so late. They refused to give us a bigger table for a bigger party that wasnt coming until 8PM. We squeezed into a smaller table, but now I know why they couldnt give us the other table... BECAUSE THEYRE SERVICE IS SOOOO SLOW. Our waitress was nice, but it just took forever for our food to come out.
Where's my tip? – So the waiter was good UNTIL we were about to leave and we see our waiter running after our car so we stopped, thinking we forgot something. The waiter looked furious and said,"Where's my tip?" My husband said, "it's on the table you should have looked before running after us." And feeling stupid he just turned back and ran inside. I bet he ran to get his tip. I know tips are a big part of a waiter's salary but c'mon now running after us before checking to see if we tipped him or not!
