Sushi is decent, but Ive had way better for much cheaper. The location is really why this place is still around a lot of people come here for lunch.

Visited Ichiban Sushi House with 8 friends on New Year's Eve. The place is very small but cozy! The server took care of the group with ease. The soups were on point and served relatively fast. The restaurant has a vast sushi variety, good presentation and great flavor. I will definitely return to Ichiban in the near future.

During a weekend wander in Old Town, we were feeling hunger pangs. After walking by lots of old haunts, tourist magnets, and restaurants specializing in heavier food, we saw Ichiban. I had enjoyed a happy hour with a friend at another Ichiban location and knew what to expect. We entered an almost empty restaurant and enjoyed a delicious meal of... More

I moved to Old Town, after living in NYC for 23 years. Tons of sushi restaurants there and this is the one place on King that has the best sushi. Yes, it's pricier than others, but I found the quality every time to be good. Very fresh and large rolls. Their house sake is also great. I also order delivery... More

We had sushi from here and it was good and fresh. The Unagi was especially good as was the salmon. We tried one of the combination sushi platters and we were not disappointed.

The sushi and sashimi isn't to rave about but it's acceptable. It struck me as quite expensive but if you need a sushi fix you can do worse. No Uni, No Toro, but quite good hamachi and eel, Fish in Salmon Skin Hand roll and eel hand roll were cold with soggy nori. You wouldn't complain if it was cheap.... More

The service was very good despite the fact that is was late and they were closing in 30 minutes. The plum wine was very good and the sushi was fresh. We loved the over all atmosphere and the service.

Whenever my wife and I get a craving for sushi, we head to happy hour (5-6pm) at Ichiban Sushi House on King Street in Alexandria to eat our fill for under $30. It’s the best for your buck that we have been able to find. The happy hour menu is simple, but tasty. They offer two deluxe maki rolls for... More

We were in the mood for ramen but not in the mood for an hour long wait when we stumbled upon Ichiban. There was a sign outside for their ramen so we decided to try it. We ordered two bowls of their spicy miso ramen with pork and an order of gyoza. The broth was delicious, the noodles had a... More

Our favorite sushi restaurant, Flying Fish, closed rather unexpectedly a few years back and we have been on the hunt for a replacement. We tried Ichiban and it was very good. The fish was super fresh, the selection was good and the presentation was excellent. It may not have the ambiance of Flying Fish but the food is fine.

Thank MaeDe
