This place has become a designated go-to for me and my family. The staff are very warm and inviting and the sushi is amazing. They provide great options for people who aren't so fond of sushi as well as innovative and delicious options for those who do enjoy. This is one of the few gems in greenwood Indiana that people...

As the name implies, they serve primarily Japanese food, but they have several other types of Asian cuisine as well. The décor is rather fancy even though it wasn't upscale in price. My wife had the Happy Family lunch platter and I had Dreaming Duck. Both were accompanied by a salad and Miso soup (soybean curd paste dissolved in some... More

I'm not a sushi person - they do have other food. I ate here for lunch & had one of their lunch specials which was soup, salad, white rice, and shrimp with little carrots/broccoli. I enjoyed it so much I also had egg custard for dessert. First time there & very pleasant experience. Good service, quiet & clean. Will definitely... More

It's just a little old house off the beaten track but don't let that fool you. It was my first trip in years and I chose a salmon bento box which came with salad. Extensive menu and I will be back. If you like Japanese food and somehow have missed this little gem- go.

Discover this hidden gem on the southside of Indy. I found out about Ichiban when we had a family reunion several years ago and all the sushi lovers met here for lunch. Don't let the strip mall it's located in fool you, once you walk in, you'll see it has a fine dining atmosphere, but still okay for casual dinners... More

Our group ordered 5 sushi options and 3 entrees. Everything from from the fresh brewed green tea to the tuna sushi was prepared fresh and served promptly. I highly recommend Ichiban.

My wife and I went for lunch and sat at the sushi bar watching the chefs prepare food. They talked to us while they worked. We each ordered a lunch special and decided next time we will order only one and split as there was a lot of food and it was delicious.

A group of friends met at Ichiban for a "Chef's Choice" dinner. The service and food could only be described as specular. The star of the evening was a huge fresh scallop served on its shell with sauce and transparent noodles. The decor of the restaurant is beautifully done. I couldn't have been happier with the evening.

My daughter loves this place, so we eat here fairly often. The crazy roll is my favorite, but there are very few rolls I don't like. Service is good and staff are friendly.

First, I will admit that I am a late comer to the sushi brigade and usually like my fish cooked. Having said that, based on my beloved's love of sushi and her reactions, this was pretty darn good stuff. Being somewhat vanilla as a neophyte sushi eater, I opted for the Philadelphia roll. Hard to go wrong with smoked salmon... More
