After a long day decided to get take out from Ichiban 2 on US-41/ Cleveland Ave in North Ft Myers. The interior is depressing at best, particularly the back room where sushi bar is. Dingy and dark with random storage items stacked around. Does not invoke confidence that any sushi ordered would be clean and fresh. As an example the proprietar woman who took my order then went and worked on a sushi order while going back and forth between payment counter, kitchen and sushi table.

Our simple take out order took quite awhile, even though there was only one table in restaurant occupied. Then she brought out our rather small order in the bottom of a large discarded box rather than a plastic bag which made it a pain to carry out and get into car and house. If they can't afford carry out bags then they've got big problems!

The quality of the food was mediocre at best - soup was OK but the rest was bad. The white rice side was cold. Again, if you cannot even manage to keep fresh steamed rice ready then get out of the restaurant business!

To make matters worse, the woman either can't add or deliberately ripped us off. We thought the bill total was high and after reviewing our order against their take out price menu brochure we discovered we were overcharge by about five bucks! She also neglected to give us a receipt or we would have gone back and challenged it. Maybe that extra five bucks was the cost for the "deluxe" take out cardboard box (sarcasm intended).

In summary, avoid this place at all costs.

I am of Japanese descent and I love a good Japanese meal. However, most Japanese resturants serve Japanese style food. I had passed Ichibans many times, assuming it is a Chinese restaurant that serves sushi. We felt like sushi one evening and decided to stop at Ichibans. I was pleasantly surprised with the interior and the tastfully done Asian decor. The menu with Chinese, sushi, and a variety of Japanese dishes, including Bento, was refreshing. I have been there several times since and the food is good.

This is a lovely little restaurant that we often frequent. The staff is very friendly and the food is super. We especially like their appetizer platter, fried rice, and rangoons.
