It would have gotten 3 stars if they hadn't passed off fish as eel. It said eel on the menu, and what arrived was cooked like unagi, with the same sauce, but it was very certainly two fillets of some unknown whitefish, pollock perhaps, under the sauce. Perhaps they were out of eel and hoped we wouldn't know the difference. Or, perhaps they do this all the time and most people don't. But that, and the inattentive service, merit 2 stars.
wow seriosly this has to be the greatest restaurant in bangor. The staff is winderful and have such great personalities, especially the host, he is such a charmer! The food is great and the price makes for a perfect midweek dinner!
This restaurant is absolutely amazing! I never ate sushi before this place, and now it's my absolute favorite. I've tried other Japanese restaurants after this one and I have to say Ichiban is one of the best. I love everything, their miso soup, ginger pork & noddles, and shrimp tempura will always be one of my favorite! Great prices! Wonderful place to take a date, friends or family!
I have to say that I have had sushi in very few places. Ichiban was where I was first introduced to sushi and also where my daughter first tried it. We are both hooked. It's part of her birthday every year. no matter what else I ask her, she always wants to go to Bangor for sushi and we live out in Bar Harbor. A good hour and a half away at least. Well, worth the drive.
The sushi is extraordinarily fresh and flavorful. The cooked Japanese food is also excellent. I highly recommend the tempura udon soup. They serve a Rainbow tobiko that explodes with flavor.
The restaurant is always clean, but feels a little stark. The service is excellent, but probably not the best choice if your in a hurry.
