“Very nice meal”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We had a reservation for 4 people and we shared a cold buffet and a warm buffet. The service was excellent. No complaints about the food. Just one small remark is that the soup was served in a plastic bowl and plastic spoon and this could be improved to ceramic.

The place is not big so a reservation is recommended. Prices are not cheap but still OK.

“Nice restaurant with good food but not impressive and lacking some atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Positives:

- good location (Esplanadeplein so between the Central Market and the Railway Station)
- good price-quality ratio
- friendly service overall
- quality and quantity of food is ok but not impressive ref quality

Negatives:

- atmosphere a bit busy due to limited space resulting in too warm temperature
- I am not sure what to think about the food, I think I might have ordered a plate (should have ordered a fish plate!) not really suiting my needs to that's why I still give a 4 star rating overall :-)

A restaurant to be recommended though!

“Finally a great Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

A great place for a quiet dinner. Perfect for talking and eating. A place where you are left to enjoy the food and enough time between servings to talk and relax

“Too expensive for what it was + shortchange”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Sushi in Ichiban were not expressive, but too expensive.
Portions are too small.
I ordered a “boat” for 2 persons, normally it contains around 35-45 pieces. In Ichiban it was around 26, that is just enough for one person. There is no information in the menu how many pieces should be on the boat! When I remarked that is not enough for 2 persons, a waitress said that the boat is a starter.
So I have to ask extra portion “take away”. And again portions were toooo small + they did not give 10% discount for take away food.
Positive points :
- They have a lot of warm Asian dishes and salads.
- Restaurant looks clean
