Ichiban Sushi (Downey)

StarStarStar

Take my review for whatever it’s worth.  I have very few experiences
eating sushi.  It’s not that I don’t like it, because I do.  I really
enjoy seafood but I never get a craving for sushi and when I do eat it,
I’m hungry again a couple of hours later.  That being said, if you’re
anything like me, this review is for you.

Pros:  Food –  I have tried the DUI, Spicy Tuna & Rainbow Rolls.  I
           also tried a few appetizers and found everything, at least,
           comparable to other sushi joints.  The most important thing to
           me was that the seafood was fresh and the rolls held their
           shape.

           Parking  - They have a private lot and FREE
           PARKING is also available directly across the
           street in a parking garage.

Indifferences:

            Service –  It can be a "Pro" or "Con."  Service is attentive –
            maybe a bit much.  Literally seconds after I finished a plate,
            someone came to swoop the dish away.  I didn’t feel rushed
            by the staff.  I just felt that they hovered over me.  Picture
            yourself in middle school taking [what was then] a major exam
            and having a teacher constantly walk up and down the aisles
            looking over your shoulder.  Anyway, that is the feeling I got
            while dining here on two separate occasions.  

I’m sure I’ll return since this restaurant is relatively close to home but
I wouldn’t make the trip if I lived more than 5 miles away.  I guess
that’s a better gauge of what my estimation is of this place.




Rainbow Roll.



DUI Roll.


 
Spicy Tuna Roll.

  2. You know, it's been so long since I last went there...I need to go back - especially since it's a stones throw from where I live. I especially love sashimi so I think I'll go that route next time around.

    Is there anything in particular that you enjoy at Ichiban, Jessi? Something I absolutely gotta try?
