I brought my mother in law here twice this week. She LOVES sashimi and this is the closest Japanese restaurant to my house. First day, she has the 12 piece sashimi and ate it in record time with a huge smile on her face (she's going to be 92 in May). The second time, my husband joined us and she... More

Ichima was highly recommended to me, so I was disappointed when I ate there with my nephew for the first time for a birthday lunch. Atmosphere is okay but a little dark. Fortunately we were seated at a window which helped. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Miso soup tasted good but barely warm. Ordered Spicy Shrimp Roll and... More

This is the place, Excellent Sushi, Sashimi, and Service, what more can you ask for. Ichima is my favorite restaurant in Pasadena, with it's fresh and delicious seafood you can't go wrong. Slide up to the Sushi counter and enjoy life, it doesn't get much better.

I thoroughly enjoy coming to Ichima. I think the way that that have everyone helping during your experience is what makes this top notch. Their sushi is great and the service is the best. Also love that they give you a miso soup with your dinner!

Our son came over last minute and wanted Japanese food..Ichima is the closest to us without going into Little Tokyo. Upon arriving we had to wait approximately 10 minutes. Once seated our drinks were served. Miso soup is an option. My son likes rolls, he had a rainbow, crunch, and tuna roll. All came at different times, they were mediocre.... More

We arrived at the restaurant ahead of the lunch crowd and even though many customers were coming in the service was great. The fish was fresh and the specialty rolls were all good except the salmon skin roll. Because it was from a lunch menu special, we were able to feed 8 people for about $160! Good food for a... More

We usually dine here for birthday celebrations but our last visit, it was quite disappointing as the quality of the food has gone downhill. We were disappointed in the cold beef that's usually warm when it arrives to your table (can't remember name of dish) and the meal was not memorable as previous visits. I did enjoy the crab hand...

I agree with the other reviews that mentioned great service. Rarely have I see such team work and attention to detail. All of the dishes were great and well prepared. We went on a Friday at 11:30 and we were lucky to get a table.

I just came here today for lunch. Once again, the sushi was deliciously fresh. However, I am heart-broken because of the pending change of ownership. One of my favorite sushi chef is leaving, the other one is not sure if he is staying. Truly a sad day for me.
