Read and post reviews on Ichiban Sushi at its new address
Daily: 11:30 - 22:00
This family restaurant serves user-friendly Japanese food, with regular promotions that encourage diners to try new types of regional cuisine. All the usual favourites are here: sushi, sashimi, tempura, handrolls, hotpots, rice and noodle dishes, and so on.
Hmmm...what shall i say? I always go here for my frequent random sushi cravings. haha. I love the salmon sashimi here. It's really fresh. And they have new creations coming up every now and then.
It gets really crowded during 6-8pm though.
I went there for a quick bite for the first time. as a japanese, i knew it was not going to be great and overpriced for the quality but just for a quick lunch i thought. i sat on the counter and after i finished eating ( not great as expected ), on the glass display on the counter that divides chef area and customers, i saw a few small cockroaches crowling.. after eating raw sushi, it almost made me feel sick. i told the waitress lady and she was apologetic but i think it is very concerning... I usually do not write negative reviews on internet but i think for this case, it is fair to share...
We are frequent diners in this restaurant. For as long as we have dined with them, the sushi chefs had been pretty hygienic to wear mask over their mouth and so, when they talk while preparing food, it was still ok.
We were very disappointed when we visited the restaurant again yesterday to see none of these chefs (there were 3 of them) at the sushi counter were wearing mask to cover their mouth. Nonetheless, they talked continuously facing down to the sushi that they were preparing for customers. Hence, it was obvious that all the sushi were contaminated with their saliva.
This restaurant practice an open concept to see the chefs prepare the sushi. Shouldn't the management be more cautious with hygiene for food?
And Since when the management had lost the hygiene concern which was previously practiced or had the management not able to afford the cheap mask for the chefs?
