Sushi Ichimoto has become our go to place for Japanese food. I'm not much on Sushi but the tempura and teriyaki Chicken was great. It even included a little vegetable medley that it didn't have before. My wife tried the Tiger Roll for the first time and said it was great.

I just finished a Chicken Katsu with Sushi bento box. What a great lunch. Kind of a lot. Came with three pieces of Cali roll, salad, rice, very tender chicken katsu, and four thick slices of sushi (2 salmon, 2 tuna). The salad dressing was tasty and the wasabi was fairly mild (tho I like it really hot). Presentation was... More

Ray's Sushi was here previously but our friends recommended this place for dinner so we decided to give it a try. Complimentary edamame and hot tea was served and once we ordered, we promptly received salad (tasty dressing) and hot miso soup. We ordered the Under the Sea Sushi, Chicken teriyaki and sashimi dinner combo, tonkatsu, and Tempura and Chicken... More

This was previously Ray's Sushi, now reopened with new owners and management. My wife is from Japan, and this is her favorite local sushi bar. That's high praise, especially since their sushi men and cooks are all Chinese. They have learned to prepare Japanese cuisine very well.

I love coming here when I crave for Japanese food. The sushi in this place have a lot of fish. I always order their tempura too. I keep coming back here for more.

This is one of our first choices for eating out. The staff is super friendly, the food is healthy, the prices are reasonable, the sushi is very fresh, and the selection is great. You name it - it's here - can't go wrong. Never had a bad meal, everything is delicious, and the portion sizes are superior. This was formerly... More

Skilled chef, quiet, comfortable atmosphere. On Wednesdays and Thursdays oysters for $1 each is hard to beat. Plenty of parking

We have been patrons of Ichimoto since they took over the space from Ray's. While I was sad to see Ray's go... I love the people who work at Ichimoto! They totally make the experience and make us feel like family! In addition to being open on Monday, which is often a rarity, the food is yummy and the experience... More

Came here close to closing time. I felt bad sitting to eat since they were cleaning up and I didn't want to be "that" customer chowing down while the employees were waiting to get home - as a result I decided to take it to go. I ordered a roll which was covered in real sushi and was delicious. It... More

Get here early as it tends to get crowded and parking can be packed as well. Formerly at the location of Ray's Sushi, it has mainly the same helpful and veteran staff. They are friendly and willing to serve quickly. The sushi is fresh and has some seafood from Japan. You'll need to check the daily menu board. If you... More
