“The best sushi in Lebanon. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014 via mobile

There is a lot of sushi places and then there is Ichiban . It's the best sushi in Lebanon and I can say in the Middle East . Last year my sister and I made it our mission to try all sushi restaurants In Lebanon but there is no place like Ichiban . The quality and the diversity of the Japanese food is at it's best. The staff are amazing and simply it's the best .

“Delicious Maki Wraps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

This is a nice restaurant that serves Sushi, Sashimi, and Maki wraps in addition to other Japanese dishes.
They have nice salads where one of them is the Marinated Salmon which consists of Marinated raw Salmon with special dressing that is serves in an ice bowl.
The wraps are delicious, with weird combinations such as foie gras and cooked chicken.
The nice thing also is that they have a good quantity of cooked maki for people who don’t like to eat raw fish.
I recommend this restaurant to all the ones who likes sushi

“It has been a while”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012

Went back to Ichiban after a year away from the place. to say the truth the quality of food has gone down. I would have imagined that the quality would have at least stayed the same.

I was quite unhappy to see such a nice place go backwards in food quality and service. Maybe the economy or the political atmosphere is to blame. But honestly i think not.
