“update”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Ichiban restaurant is a neighborhood establishment that caters mostly to the local clientele. The sushi is always fresh and the service is good however they were starting to look a little run down. They have recently renovated the interior and the place looks very nice these days. Great place to meet family and friends

“good japanese food”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Ichiban is located near the Kahului Airport, actually a little West from it in the Kahului Shopping Center. It is a small building located right at the end of the mall. Dinner is served from 5-9p.m. A wide assortment of various Japanese dishes. The Yosenabe was a nice big serving and the pork cutlet assortment was nice also- a lot of food. Prices were very reasonable as well. The restaurant is nice and big but could use some minor remodeling as the window sills appeared to have cracked frames. Would recommend here for a nice Japanese meal.

“Worst Meal In Maui In Seven Years”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

The service is terrible and the food service is worse. I have been visiting Maui 10-12 times per year for the last seven years. This is the first time I have tried ICHIBAN RESTAURANT in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii during that time. Amazingly disappointing. Ordered baked Oysters for appetizer and Butterfish for main dish. Butterfish arrived and some time later the Appetizer. I explained the mix up with the waitress who was totally void.......and unsympathetic! The meals are overpriced, not very good and I can say that I would highly recommend avoiding this establishment. I would have given a negative score given the opportunity.

decent japanese food. Not a very flashy place. Really liked the udon. Good sushi as well. I would probably not eat there again.

“Just ok.avg japanese food.”
Reviewed 19 December 2012 via mobile

Walked in and the funniest thing was the older ladyat the door. She didnt say anything just waved in a general direction to sit down. Tempura is very small portion. One had chow mein was good chicken.was a little dry. One had soup nothing special. No kids meals. Waitress said portions were large they were not. All in all we might come back if no other options which there are not many in maui.
