We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and even if we haven't been in a while, we receive a warm greeting. Their specials are very good.

We ordered three rolls and had plenty left over to take home. The people are friendly and the food is fresh!

Ordered a bento lunch. Food was ok. Service was fast and great, but that might have been due to a slow customer day. A little pricey for lunch and the quality. The restaurant was decorated nicely with lots of wood. So, I enjoyed the atmosphere. Soda was out of a can that I poured into a glass. Surprised they did... More

I lived in Japan for two years and my favorite foods are Katsudon, Okonomyaki and fried rice. It is easy to find good fried rice, but the other two are difficult. I was happy to find Katsudon here as we grabbed a late dinner. Next time we will try some sushi. The miso soup was just OK. The waitress was... More

We used to go to Ichiban every Friday night as it's somewhat close to our neighborhood. But while they seemed busy for years, it got slower and slower and we felt the quality and freshness of the sushi declined. We've stopped going after the last time when the fish as BAD. It's sad cuz the owner is a really nice... More

Where to start? First I'm wondering HOW they got anything more than zero stars. Ordered chicken, rice and soup for lunch. Waaaaay overpriced at 8.95 for what I got, which wasn't even edible. 8 little strips of dried out, old chicken teriyaki, two small pieces of nasty cabbage, rice uninspired, soup INEDIBLE. I'm not even sure if it's real chicken... More

On my latest visit to Portland we (daughter & son-in-law) went for sushi, it was excellent. Service was good, not great but the chef is welcoming to all and we were treated to a free appetizer to go with our delicious Plum wine. We ordered a variety of sushi and a tempura plate. All were excellent. Thought it was a... More

We eat here about 6-8 times a year. Usually they are very good. Tonight the fish was not fresh, the beef was rotten and the service was worse. Nobody refilled our water because nobody came to check on us. It took them 25 minutes to get our check. They seemed much more talkative and attentive to their regular customers, asking... More

Although the atmosphere is modest this is some of the best sushi, sashimi, and especially tempura I've had. The prices are great too. Around $12-$15 each will get you a really fantastic dinner. I would only think the service could be a little more friendly and it would be perfect. The chef is super friendly, the the head waitress always... More
