i used to go to sushi ichiban when it was takahasi, i still go occasionally and have been for over 12 years. the quality, portions, and freshness of the sushi has declined alot in the last few years and now i rarely go. for anyone wanting good fresh sushi i recommend gaya gaya or the Japanese restaurant off of macadam i cant remember the name. they aren't conveyor belt style restaurants but are very very very high quality and fresh sushi. anyone wanting very fresh (usually) conveyor belt sushi should go to sushi hana in tigard where it is always happy hour there 1$ 1.50$ plates all day every day.
This was the place my family and I would go when we lived in Portland. I appreciated the fact that their wasabi was made fresh and came from Oregon. They had a picture up on the wall saying what plant they used which made me feel good about what we were eating. The steamroller train is another fascinating detail. I felt like a kid being able to pick out what sushi I wanted and the like. I also enjoyed the informally friendly atmosphere of the restaurant. It brings back warm memories.
Now known as Sushi Ichiban, this is one of my favorite places to eat in Portland. I live about an hour away, but I've been known to make the drive just to eat here. Even my parents like it too! It's true we're sushi newbies: my dad sometimes buys Safeway or Winco sushi...(ick), but if you go to Sushi Ichiban any time on Saturday or for dinner Wednesday, they're nearly as cheap and so, so, SO much better! I love the calamari, tuna, fried oysters and more! The desserts are good too! Micheal and Jade (reviews below) you guys are right on!
Takahashi on Broadway has changed it's name to Ichiban due to sale of other business interests. This location is still the same great food, ambiance and prices but different name. I love it and frequent it.
This place is definitely not for the sushi-snob, or bigotted elitist yuppies (please stay away), but definitely a must frequent place for working class and alternative crowds. Good food, low prices, friendly staff, (unless you're the aforementioned condescending types).
I'm not super-familiar with sushi, but I've eaten at a few sushi places in town, and this place is great. Perhaps one of the best I've been to, albeit in my limited experience. A great value for your buck, and everything is prepared fresh and is quite delicious. If you work downtown, this is the place to go for lunch!
Sushi Takahashi has many options for vegetarians and a few of the staff members are vegetarian themselves, and so I felt safe eating there.
The constant sound of the train is soothing. Perfect place for children, it keeps them constantly occupied. The staff are very helpful, music was amazing. I will be back very soon.
