Had a quick lunch here, alone. For me the lunch selection looked a little limited. The taste was good but the sushis where unnecessary big = challenging to eat. Not bad but not superb either.

Top quality sushi at a very reasonable price. The menu is simple and the food delicious. We really enjoyed our experience at this imtimate, nearly secret, tucked away resturant. I had the kitsune Udon which warmed me right up. My partner had the miso with a plater of sushi and some plum wine to compliment it all. I would highly... More

Allthough it is very hard to compete with restaurants in Tokyo (wide selection of fresh ingredients) some of the sushi places in Helsinki do rather well. It´s been a while since I last visited Ichiban - propably nearly 10 years - so it was thrilling to see how its doing nowadays. Had a selection of 10 Nigiris of which the... More

This is a small restaurant in Kamppi shopping center. Fast and friendly service. Menus are somewhat different from what you'd expect in a sushi restaurant in Finland -- experimental, strong and playful combinations of tastes. Not perhaps my favorite in town, but Ichiban is worth a try.

Small sushi restaurant in the city centre with good tasting sushi and quick service. Not that much to choose from, either food or drinks. Just basic stuff, but it tasted good.

A small sushi place, friendly service and very decent sushi. The lunch combos give you good value for your money. Despite the friendly and fast service, the staff seemed mostly interested in gossiping: I must say I would've preferred less information on their personal health and boyfriends, and more peace to enjoy my lunch.

Found this restaurant after walking from shop to shop and nicely surprised when it turned out to be one of the better "just go here" decisions. Staff are very helpful and the place itself is nice,comfortable and clean. Good selection to make ur own menu but just go for the pre done plates, good quality for the price. Def call... More
