I was taken here by a local couple that often come in. You can bring your own wine. I love sushi but to me, it's often like a diner. Most places are good, few are outstanding. I think Ichiban in on the outstanding side. The sushi is really good and fresh but the best part was the very inventive rolls.... More

I'm always on the lookout for a sushi place to go to on a regular basis. I was hoping to be here in New Jersey every week for a project but it turned out I'm needed in St. Louis. Oh well! This would have been my "go to" place, conveniently located near several hotels. The service in this unassuming place... More

If I could give this place a zero I would, ordered for delivery, waited 2 hours, they closed after lunch and never delivered my food. Places like this dont deserve to stay in business

I discovered Ichiban pretty recently and am really happy to have such a high quality sushi restaurant so close to my house. I continue to be impressed with the high quality and freshness of the sashimi, the miso soup is delicious, and I like the age tofu as well. The staff are really nice and delivery is always speedy if... More

This small strip mall restaurant has one of the best sushi rolls in the area and very convenient if staying in one of the hotels. The restaurant decor is nothing remarkable, but it does have a small sushi bar. Ichiban offers a large selection of hand and specialty sushi rolls. My favorite is the French Kiss with a hint of...

We were looking for somewhere near the Homewood Suites for dinner. I viewed the menu online and chose Ichiban. We were given a Saturday eat in special sushi menu with two pages of half price options, as well as a regular menu. If you have wanted to try sushi but without a huge bill, this is a great option.

I wrote a review in 2012, and continue to come to Ichiban on my annual trip to what is now the largest cat show on the East Coast. I found out after I had left the restaurant and had read somebody else's review, that the restaurant has changed hands, but that the former owners had stayed on for a bit,... More

I was at the Garden State Convention Center for a function this past weekend. After a long day Saturday, I checked TripAdvisor for restaurant recommendations in the area. I was interested in Chinese or Japanese cuisine. Some of the listings closed early, others did not seem like what I wanted. I read about ICHIBAN and, considering that they were close... More

Food is excellent, normal portions. Service is good and fast, despite near to full house. The fish for the sushi and sashimi is fresh. The only slight comment would be they sliced my mochi up into two pieces while serving. Would have preferred it as one whole piece to keep the ice cream from melting. The restaurant is clean and...
