My partner and I dined out this evening at Ichiban and on walking in, it looked good. Typical furnishings for a sushi restaurant. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. There was only another couple in the restaurant and it was a Friday night during the dinner hour. We looked at the menu and prices are double what they would be in a city environment and that's ok if the food quality matches.
Well that's the problem. Mid-teen prices for a bento box that should cost pre-teen numbers. My chicken teriyaki was dry and the tempura had been re-warmed. The California roll was real crab and passable but for the price I expected more creativity and stand out food vs just mediocre.
By contrast the sushi restaurant directly across the street was jumping. Not a seat available and people waiting to get in.
My partner ordered a chicken teriyaki roll and some sashimi and was disappointed by both. Her chicken was not fresh and the rice was tasteless.
So, advice: go across the street and hopefully the owners read this truthful review instead of the fluff prior. A real review focuses on service, food and quality as well as fair pricing.
Save your money and don't go here until the owners adjust their pricing to match the food quality or increase the quality and creativity to be able to call their prices fair.
