Two couples tried Ichiban and we were surprised! Surprised in a good way!! We shared some sushi and spring rolls which were very good. We ordered the Ichiban Roll, spicy shrimp Lo mein, spicy crispy chicken, and spicy tofu. We were not only surprised at the delicious flavors but the very decent portions. See associated photos of the Ichiban roll... More

Son and daughter took us here for dinner. First time here. Waitress was so, so. Ordered Japanese dumplings and spring rolls for appetizer. They were very good. But waitress didn't bring any plates, so had to eat over napkins. Main meal was salamon, avocado sushi, crispy duck, cashew chicken, orange Beef. All of it was very good and you get... More

Maybe I'm spoiled by the great sushi options we have here in the Twin Cities. I wasn't too impressed by the quality of the sushi at this restaurant. With that said you may not have too many choices in South Bend and this may satisfy your sushi craving if you're desperate.

Took my 11yr old daughter out for sushi. We shared the Dream Roll and the South Bend Roll, absolutely delicious!! My daughter said she would rather eat sushi than have dessert any day! Excellent service. They also serve other Chinese and Japanese food, but we only had the sushi and hot tea. We will definitely be coming back. And they... More

They offer 3 menus- Chinese, Chinese/American, and sushi. The sushi is well presented and delicious. (they get daily deliveries of fish) The Chinese menu offers traditional dishes with many Szechuan favorites. All are prepared exquisitely. The Chinese/American menu offers all the usual dishes- kung pao, General Tso's chicken, orange beef, fried rice, etc. The owners and their family are very... More

We went there for dinner and tried the "authentic Chinese menu". We ordered quite a few dishes but I was very disappointed. The scallion pancake was greasy and had some dark, sticky, salty and unidentifiable sauce dribbled on top. The cucumber swam in so much mashed garlic which was the only thing I could taste. The Dandan noodle and Sichuan... More

The owners wife looks soooo young.... and the owner is the chef, the sushi chef, the waiter, and front desk....... not a busy place at all. The sushi case didn't even have any fish. Food is about average.

Since moving to South Bend, I've missed the joys of good sushi. Stumbling upon Ichiban Golden Dragon was a good ole fashion blessing. My friends and I now eat at this establishment multiple times a month and are never disappointed. The Chinese food is great but I always opt in for the sushi. The Dragon and Godzilla rolls are a...

Overall dinning at Ichiban Golden Dragon is always a delicious and entertaining experience. The people are great, the atmosphere is pleasant and the sushi is amazing! My friends and I always go for sushi and sake, and are never disappointed. Great for post-football game dinners and Tuesday night dinner specials.

My friends and I often go here for lunch or dinner. The servers are always very friendly and make us feel at home when we visit. The restaurant serves delicious Chinese food, but I usually get a sushi dish because it the best quality fish you can get in either South Bend or Mishawaka. I highly recommend this place to... More
