Took my 11yr old daughter out for sushi. We shared the Dream Roll and the South Bend Roll, absolutely delicious!! My daughter said she would rather eat sushi than have dessert any day! Excellent service. They also serve other Chinese and Japanese food, but we only had the sushi and hot tea. We will definitely be coming back. And they... More

They offer 3 menus- Chinese, Chinese/American, and sushi. The sushi is well presented and delicious. (they get daily deliveries of fish) The Chinese menu offers traditional dishes with many Szechuan favorites. All are prepared exquisitely. The Chinese/American menu offers all the usual dishes- kung pao, General Tso's chicken, orange beef, fried rice, etc. The owners and their family are very... More

We went there for dinner and tried the "authentic Chinese menu". We ordered quite a few dishes but I was very disappointed. The scallion pancake was greasy and had some dark, sticky, salty and unidentifiable sauce dribbled on top. The cucumber swam in so much mashed garlic which was the only thing I could taste. The Dandan noodle and Sichuan... More

The owners wife looks soooo young.... and the owner is the chef, the sushi chef, the waiter, and front desk....... not a busy place at all. The sushi case didn't even have any fish. Food is about average.

Since moving to South Bend, I've missed the joys of good sushi. Stumbling upon Ichiban Golden Dragon was a good ole fashion blessing. My friends and I now eat at this establishment multiple times a month and are never disappointed. The Chinese food is great but I always opt in for the sushi. The Dragon and Godzilla rolls are a...

Overall dinning at Ichiban Golden Dragon is always a delicious and entertaining experience. The people are great, the atmosphere is pleasant and the sushi is amazing! My friends and I always go for sushi and sake, and are never disappointed. Great for post-football game dinners and Tuesday night dinner specials.

My friends and I often go here for lunch or dinner. The servers are always very friendly and make us feel at home when we visit. The restaurant serves delicious Chinese food, but I usually get a sushi dish because it the best quality fish you can get in either South Bend or Mishawaka. I highly recommend this place to... More

Monday is carry out only. The place was dark & did not appear very clean (maybe it was the darkness), but the service was quick (about 10 min), and the mu shu pork was very good, one of the better one's i've had. I also had the spring rolls which were good, but not spectacular. The price was very reasonable,... More

This is a little restaurant, and we just order take out. We love their dumplings! We have never had a bad experience. Our favorite meal is Sweet N Sour Chicken, General Tso Chicken and House Lo Mein.

Tried this restaurant for the first time recently on a weeknight. Few customers when we arrived but quite a few soon arrived and it became clear why people came. Great selection of sushi, entrees, appetizers and drinks. Service was excellent.
