Great Chinese food. This place is really authentic Szechuan food. Sure you can get your general's chicken, but go for the stuff you can't get at the mall. I recommend the spicy duck tongue, and the Yangzhou fried rice. The spicy hot mapo tofu is very good too

Stopped for an early lunch. Quickly seated by a courteous waiter. Nice booths in a clean, comfortable setting. There is a lunch menu with a large variety of selections under $8 or you can order from the main menu. Food was served quickly and was delicious. I had a meeting the following day and my husband went back for lunch... More

A huge menu and a lot of it is beyond the "normal" American palate. There are a large number of Asian student who go to the UW-Madison and large numbers of them frequent this place. One of these days I'll try the fried pig stomach but alas, I'm too timid LOL! But everything I have tried is wonderful.

As a Chinese come from Sichuan originally, I would say the food is really good. I am definitely going back.

My partner and I tried Ichiban Sichuan for dinner the other night. The food was outstanding! When we arrived, it was pretty busy but there were a few tables available. The hostess was pretty engrossed with someone, but she eventually led us to a table and provided us with menus. It took awhile, but eventually a waitress came by to... More

We have been to Ichiban numerous times, and have never been disappointed. They provide fantastic quality, authentic flavor Sichuan dishes. We have ordered the poached beef, curry shrimp, crispy fish and dry pot. Very spicy and well cooked!

Stopped here for lunch with my daughter, at the recommendation of one of her professors, and was blown away. The menu is full of what I would call exotic dishes and some familiar favorites. We both ordered from the lunch menu. I got the beef thai curry and she got the house special mei fun. Her's came first and was... More

THE best Chinese restaurant in the Madison area and one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, period. Wendy, the owner, takes good care of her customers and makes sure everything is perfect. The food is terrific. If you love spicy food, this is the place. The Spicy Crispy Shrimp and Sliced Poached Fish in hot sauce are two of my favorites.... More

We stopped by with our daughter and a friend - they wanted to try the hot pot and needed a crowd to do justice to the vast quantity of food presented. Some of us liked spicy food, others did not so we ended up with two hot pots simmering away on the table, one with chili-hot broth and the other... More

Food is very authentic and tasty! Service is ok. Our server was shy and kind of stayed away from us. Food service is quick and again, delicious. You get large portions to share with your family. Restaurant is clean and there's free wifi. Parking is a bit of a hassle and a lot of confusion due to when you can... More
