A few of my colleagues went to the IBM Office on Central and Thomas, close to Phoenix downtown for a training class, and decided to go to the Sochu House for lunch. However, the Sochu House was closed, so we were forced to go to the Ichi Ban Japanese sushi for lunch. Both these restaurants were in the same plaza... More

By FAR! the best sushi place in the whole city, with friendly staff and very high quality product. I have about a year that I can't go for economical reasons, yes, is not a cheap place. Before my family and I use to go there about 4 times a week or maybe more, they always focused on quality. VERY tasty... More

Sushi was good and the service was great. They are only open until 9pm, seems that a lot of places in Phoenix close earlier than we are used to elsewhere in the country. We sat at the sushi bar, the chef was polite and conversational. We had several rolls, all fairly good. I can't say this was the best sushi... More

If you are a beginner in sushi and like low prices with very average quality this is the place for you. The food is not bad but certainly not anything special. They have been around Phoenix for many years and have several locations so somebody likes them enough to keep going.

My wife and I love this place. We have eaten sushi all over the world and this is as good as you will get anywhere. Sure, as the previous reply stated, it's not cheap, but we live in a desert and it takes money to keep fresh fish in the restaurant. We live in Mesa and make the drive at... More
