Although this small town gem is tucked away it has been discovered by many and continues as the eaterie on Maui for wonderful Japanese dishes at NOT MAUI PRICES . Most all meals includes soup, rice, pickled cabbage and wonderfully great entrees such as perhaps world class tempura and the likes of teriyaki chicken and pork... GO THERE, YOU WILL... More

Ichiban (number one in Japanese) is number one with locals for sushi and Japanese food. I've never had fresher hamachi (yellow tail) sushi or ahi sashimi (red tuna). The yellow tail melted in my mouth and the ahi was like butter. But there's not only sushi on the menu - there's tempura, stir fry, udon noodles, and more. But I... More

This is not a tourist stop but a nice place for people who live on another Hawaiian island visiting Maui. This is a Japanese local-style restaurant. Nice and clean with a quiet atmosphere. Real comforting place with comforting food.. Located in small little shopping area with a few other businesses. Although located on the main thoroughfare and visible from the... More

I have no idea what took me so long to try this place but I finally did! I've been on a mission to find the best nabeyaki udon on the rock recently, and I was happy to learn they offer one.

Out here for business and wanted to try a local Japanese restaurant near by. This place is located in a strip mall with ample parking. Ordered their Ichiban D combo which included: Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura, steak teriyaki, and chicken teriyaki. The batter to the tempura was thick and under cooked. The dipping sauce was cold and the steak teriyaki... More

Friendly staff, good menu and great value food. Try the teriyaki chicken it's very tasty and it comes with miso soup. It was always busy with diners when I went there ... Twice during my trip as I liked it so much I went back again
