This is like a hidden gem! It's not much to look at from outside but the food is incredible, so reasonable, always friendly service, this place is the best! I have never had one bad item! The miso soup is the best I have had in Portland, great sushi and the variety is super! Great place!

There is nothing fancy or upscale about this place in old town Portland at the corner of Burnside and Broadway. But when you walk through the door you can sense it-- this is going to be good. First, the service and atmosphere-- staff are very friendly with customers and each other. They like their work. They like each other. They... More

Was taken here by some friends who live nearby, and it was a real treat. Sushi isn't my first choice of food, but really enjoyed it. It's quirky, filling, and very cheap. The sushi is placed on a train which rides around a long oval eating area, and there's plenty of order forms so you can get what you like... More

Our 8 year old has recently discovers sushi (mostly tomago and plain rice rolls) and taking him to the type of place where you pick the plates off a conveyor belt -- or in this case a model train -- has made it even more fun. You are not getting high end fish, but after feeding a family of 3... More

We where looking for a sushi Resturant near the Pearl District and I found the reviews for Sushi Ichiban and decided to give it a try. The food was great and so was the service. It has a cool atmosphere. The chef's are vitiated in a center island and you can sit on a stool or there are booths. The... More

So this place reminded of spots in San Francisco that had plates of sushi delivered to your bar seat via a conveyor belt or floating boats. This one had a train track wrapped around the bar and your plates were delivered on a train! Cool idea. You're charged by the number of plates you pick up and by the color... More

The sushi was great. It was recommended by a family member and I am glad that I went.The service was great and we got our order fast. I had the shrimp boat and it was yummy. I love the conveyor belt because there was lots of sushi to choose from.

I love the fact that you can try small portions of different rolls, a few pieces at a time. The variety is nice to have. Honestly though, my absolute favorite roll here is a vegan one called the Eliza roll. They are really good. I'd advise against their "ramen" though. It was edible, but not great.

We stopped by Sushi Ichiban because my daughter loves sushi trains. This was an actual G scale? model train serving up the dishes on flatbed cars. The sushi was very good with a nice variety. My Mom does not like sushi and she was able to find something nice off the menu. The servers and chefs were very attentive and... More
