We have been going to Ichi Riki for many years. It's a very old Establishment in dire need of some restorations, but it is clean. My Parents and I had a Mexican Waiter take our orders. He speaks limited English and tried speaking a few Japanese phrases to my Father. Although he lacks in English his service was friendly and... More

Dirty sticky tables. Overall the food was extremely poor. We ordered some sort of special, and they served the different items all over the place. They'd serve the 3rd part of it first and the 1st part of it second and the 2nd part third. One part of it was some sort of beef pinweels. I have to say that... More

I read the reviews first and decided to take a chance. It is a standard Asian food restaurant. Not so bad. Not fantastic. The food was good the service was meh...... I'd go back through.

We've been here a few times because we have a family member that like this place for nostalgic reasons, I think....but unfortunately the flavors and freshness are not consistent and the environment is borderline dirty. Not much more to say.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 40 years. If you don't start your meal with the miso soup, and a salad with their special dressing, you're missing one of the bests parts of this restaurant. I've tried to figure out how the salad dressing is made, but with no luck. If anyone can piece it together, please... More

This place has been here forever. The sushi is good. The Tempura/Chicken bento boxes are a good bet for your money. It's better to go for lunch. The staff is not very friendly at all and they don't come back and check on you much.

The food is fresh, excellent service and very helpful. This is the best Japanese restaurant in the Monterey Penninsula. Their sushi is outstanding. Easy parking!

I can't imagine why this place isn't the hit of the town. I have been to dozens of sushi bars from LA to SF. There's nothing flashy about Ichi-Riki, and that's just how I like it. Except that the food is the best. My favorites include the Albacore Tataki, Shrimp Tempura, and the Saba Nigiri. Each the best I have... More

I went there for the first time a few days ago and I really enjoyed it. The food was amazing and the sushi was extremely fresh, plus the BBQ eel melted in your mouth. The price of the food was moderately okay and it was a nice relaxing environment to enjoy some amazing traditional Japanese cuisine in.

Thank Brittany E
