Ichiban Sushi Asian Bistro
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab - Washington DC
Fast service with food and drinks from our initial server (male). And then female server came to our table and was very aggressive. Trying to remove plates from our table without asking if we were done. I was, literally, putting food in my mouth and she grabbed my plate. And within 2 mins she was back offering to box up our food. Had to ask her not to return to our table and we would call out to someone, if we needed assistance. The restaurant had other tables available, so there was no need to rush us out.
Food was good and hot, reasonably-priced, and well-proportioned.
My wife and I love this place! The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is purely personal. I love enjoying sake with my sushi and I think their sake selection could be enhanced. It’s too limited for my liking, but that’s not going to keep me from patronizing this establishment. The sushi is fresh and unctuous. I love the hot towels when initially seated! We really enjoy the sushi for two. It’s the perfect amount of sushi and chef’s rolls. Please keep up the great work!
Exceptional customer service and high quality sushi. If I could move in to the dining room I’d sell my house today. The fish is so fresh I’d swear there was an ocean out back. There have been times in my life when I’ve gotten sushi and felt like I was eating an art project...and those times have been here at Ichiban and out west in Seattle, WA! Please keep doing what you’re doing Ichiban Asian Bistro!
Excellent food! Service was good. A good spot to eat solo, date night or large groups.
Excellent food and fast service. We decided to go on a date night with the little one and I had a taste for sushi so this was a nice option based on reviews. I enjoyed the food and would definitely return.
Fast service. Hot food
I left my food and they still
The service was poor .we had a new waiter that didn’t know the menu and didn’t know how to take our order. She got all 4 of our drinks wrong . We order 3 full sized platters of sushi as appetizers , and one orange chicken with fried rice & one general toas chicken as our main course. We watched our sushi sit on the counter for about 5min. Then all our food came together appetizers and main course.She got our order wrong and brought us two general toas . We had no room at our table with the appetizers and main course .out group just didn’t have a nice time because of our server.👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Excellent prices and service. Soup and entree for less than $10!
Service was not up to par as in the past visits. However, the food was great as usual.
Food used to be much better but during this visit, the taste of everything was off. Food was very bland.
It was just ok. Their customer service could've been better. Once your food arrives, the server doesn't come back. My son didn't like his sauce and I ask just for a different sauce... you would've thought I had asked for a free meal. This was my first time going and I probably won't go back.
Shrimp steamed dumplings were not great. But, the Hunan Chicken was yummy.
Always a wonderful dining experience. Presentation of food is so appetizing....
This is our go to place. We love it there and bring all our friends.
Previously eaten here on my way to southern Maryland and typically order sushi. I decided to try their Thai selection and it was excellent! First, the Tom Yum Goong soup is very spicy but I like it that way! The Thai Shrimp Basil with eggplant was delicious with fresh green, red and orange peppers and baby eggplant! I'd order again! So glad I tried something new!
Food was good, but the server wasn't.
Ichiban is our place. Great food, always friendly and it's the best place in town to come with a group of friends.
Went here for dinner with my boyfriend. He got various sushi rolls and I ordered Pad Thai. We both have high standards for the items we ordered since we both love them so much. The food was simply OK. Wasn't bad, just not what we expected.
While the service seemed decent, they forgot to bring my food out and I had to wait for a while. That also messed up my perception of the restaurant.
I'm not sure if we will be back here.
Service was good. Food was just ok. Order the orange beef. Had to send it back because beef was extremely tough not to mention had absolutely no seasoning save the sauce. Husband ordered sesame shrimp and that was ok - ended up getting it instead of orange beef. Had Shrimp Spring rolls and calamari as appetizer. Calamari was also tough and tasteless. I would not return.
Food was very delicious and alcoholic drinks were great. Food came out pretty quickly and servers were attentive with refilling water and clearing the table. I wish the servers explained the menu, especially the sushi menu. Our menus were given to us to view and the server left for the next task, put in appetizer, order drink and order entree. Server could have engaged us more about the menu and specials but they did assist when we asked. We are inexperienced sushi eater. We were happy with menu selections that we chose. Next time, we may try sushi.
Good is excellent. Delicious selection of Japanese, Thai, and a smattering of Chinese.
Food was spicy but delicious! I went with a group of girlfriends and it was very nice.
Great options for sushi and other Asian cuisine including some Thai dishes, Japanese and Chinese.
The pineapple fried rice is great!
Easy to find and an extremely diverse menu. My family sampled dishes Sushi and Thai food and all of it was wonderful.
We went to Ichiban for my son's birthday. The hostess was pleasant and courteous, seating us right away. However, the dining experience changed dramatically once the server arrived. Our server seemed irritated with us from the time we placed our drink order. At one point we politely asked for an additional root beer and she shook her head and walked away. The food was disappointing as well, of seemingly poor quality, with the exception of the sushi which was pretty good. After leaving the restaurant though several members of my family, including myself, fell ill with stomach issues. We do not plan on returning to Ichiban.
I really enjoyed Tina's service. She was fast and very nice.
Authentic Japanese food is absolutely delicious.
Always the best food and service. Never fails. I enjoy Ichiban each visit
Friday night, busy glad I called ahead, place seems confused.... my friend requested no mushrooms in her dish, the server said fine, food came (not all together either) and there were mushrooms...waitress said "oh sorry, can't you just pick them out?" Not a nice approach. Small place got loud quickly, kind of felt rushed, but it was Friday night
The food is amazing but be prepared for rude and clueless hosts and servers. I will dine again, because the food was THAT good that I will overlook the horrible service.
Great, fresh sushi that's reasonably priced. Friendly, attentive staff. Worth the drive from Alexandria.
This is a perfect resturant to take a guy who has never eaten sushi.
The ambiance is good here, I always enjoy one on one dinning with spouse or daughter. Great service, when I dine here the clock stops sometimes I'm there for hours!
Food tastes excellent and great service!
Enjoyed everything I had including the duck crepe appetizer! All sushi was great!
I have been here many many times and am always impressed. The sushi and Thai foods are amazing. My friend and I tried something from the "wok" menu and were not impressed. It was not very tasty and did not have a distinct taste does the multiple other items we have tried.
Not sure if it was a fluke but I will be sticking to the sushi and Thai menus.
Noticed that a section of the restaurant was probably very suitable for folks who want to eat sushi have a drink and watch TV. Nice.
We sat in their upper level which overlooked the sushi bar. Other diners apparently appreciated the TV. We enjoyed our meal - food was plentiful - had a lot to bring home. Sushi entre was served on a huge platter and I was full! However, the sushi selection was standard - my son chose specific sushi items which were excellent.
This was my second time there. I am unsure what happened but the food was 100 percent better this time than my first experience. I loved the speediness of my food and the portions were huge! I highly recommend this place.
