I had food delivered to my apartment last night through the amazon delivery service. -The display of the food was beautiful.-The sushi was good, I have definitely had better considering how high their prices are. The yellowtail with scallion was the best out of the 6 rolls we ordered. -They only sent us 2 napkins, and 2 half filled c ... read more

Terrible! They served me poop! actual POOP!!!! I'm shocked at this. the food was nice and the ambiance and service were nice but i really don't appreciate them feeding me literal poop. And not even the good kind. still giving them 5 stars because other than the poop thing it was good.

The restaurant was really nice we went in around 2 so there was no wait to be seated.  We missed the lunch crowd and it was like we had the restaurant to ourselves. Wait staff was friendly and answered all of our questions and was very attentive to us.   The pork  miso ramen was amazing! The broth is so good and the noodles are cooke ... read more

I'm still new to the sushi game but I enjoyed the rolls I got. I'm not into the raw fish and eel yet so I have cooked meat in all my rolls (pause). The customer service was cool, nothing missing and nothing added. You have to love the location! The wife and I had the Yami Yami roll. That's a BIG hell yeah!! That was the best one!

This is my favorite place for ramen ...
This is my favorite place for ramen in the Arlington/Alexandria area, by far! We always enjoyed their ramen, but after visiting Tokyo, now we know how amazing it is. They are not stingy with meat like other places, where you have to order extra meat just to have a normal amount. The spicy miso broth is perfect. Plus, they have great ... read more

Stopped by on a Monday evening after my 5 mile walk (hehehe)). I ordered the salmon avocado, California and rainbow rolls for takeout. The waiter gave me a glass of water while waiting. There were only 2 other people in the restaurant but I know this place gets a steady flow of patrons because I pass by it everyday. My order was read ... read more

I really want to say 3.5 but I (obviously) cannot rate it that and I feel bad for rounding down because, overall I think it was slightly better than a 3 star experience. We came on a Saturday night around 7pm and were seated immediately inside. Service throughout the night was kinda awkward. He was a young kid so I give me a break, b ... read more

A normal date night out turned into finding our new sushi spot. The service was lightning fast, our polite server came back with 1st drinks in 2 mins. Apps were perfectly timed behind that. The sushi was top notch in presentation, quality and taste. I had a great meal and was even happily surprised when the bill came. Well done!

I had the ramen with spicy miso soup base.  It was not as spicy as I thought it would be but it was still pretty darn delicious.  With Ramen, it's all in the soup base and this one was done very well.  It was stewed long enough to get the flavors but not too long that it became cloudy.  The baby bok choy and soy bean boiled eggs were ... read more

Ichiban is one of my Shirlington favorites! HH goes from 3:30-6:30 and offers up a solid selection of deals - $4 gyoza, edamame (always fresh and steaming hot) and seaweed salad, $4 select maki rolls and $8 select specialty rolls. They also have weekly specials, like $2 off ramen bowls on Wednesday. I like to swing by for HH sushi ro ... read more

This place has a very good selection of sushi. The ramen I ordered was pretty decent. But the main thing that I liked from this place was the Fatty Tuna. It was truly an experience when you put into your mouth. The Tuna melted in my mouth. The only thing I did not like was the fact that they kept their doors open so flies were flying ... read more

Very good! The rolls are fresh, vibrant, and adventurous. The Chicago bull is strange, but pleasant. I enjoyed everything I tasted, including the miso soup and bao. Yum!

One of my favorite places in the area to eat. All their rolls are prepared very well (especially the specialty ones, and quite fresh) Ramen is delicious. Very well-marinated meats, excellent broth.

Ichiban has really solid sushi. My husband was telling me, about a year ago, that he found this sweet new ramen spot in Shirlington, but on both my visits so far I've only had their sushi and sashimi. lol. According to him their ramen is pretty money as well. They have the same as many of my favorite restaurants in the area, but what ... read more

We came here for late lunch. They have happy hour that starts around 3pm. We got the crunchy tuna roll, red snapper sashimi and goyza. The happy hour food is so so. The sashimi cut was thick and didn't look too fresh. The best thing on the menu is the ramen hands down and makes up for all the other stuff. We got the spicy miso season ... read more

Nice spot in Shirlington for Japanese food. There is something for everyone here, which I like. We ordered drinks and the spring roll appetizer to start.

My husband and I really enjoyed this place, great service, good food, clean and price is decent. You must try this place. The owner Grace is very hospitable and friendly. I highly recommend the gyoza appetizer, it's delicious and I order every time we go. Which is about every two weeks.

I've lived in Okinawa for couple of years and I've learned to enjoy their good food, esp ramen. So, when I left the country I was feeling devastated because I will no longer have ramen again.

Great food and service. Management is very nice and waiters are great. One of the times I was there, I was ordering happy hour food for 3 people even though the others had not yet arrived. They were able to put the order in with no problem! Will definitely be back.

Good food and drinks
I've been to this location several times since being in VA. They have some great plates and good drinks.
