Ichi-Riki offers the best sushi value in the Monterey area. There is both good sushi and reasonable prices. I can eat a meal, with sake for around $30 with tip, which is about $10 cheaper than Crystal Fish. The sushi is good, fresh and well prepared. The last time I was here, a family said they'd been coming there for... More

I've been coming to Ichi Riki for over 30 years with family members. One thing that has never changed is the quality of food. Food always fresh and flavorful. During the day they have lunch bento boxes from $9.95 to 13.95 these boxes give you a choice of two to three items of your choice with soup, rice and salad.... More

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

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!
