Pleasantly surprised by the taste and presentation of the lunch specials. We had orange chicken with pork fried rice, beef veg stir fry with wide rice noodles, and pork lo mein. They brought us small salads and spring rolls. (We also had hot tea, which next time we would skip, as it was highly perfumed.) The entire bill was about... More

Terrible food - better to go to a Chinese take out. The Tempura coating is a thick paste- just awful! The service is poor and the prices are high for their low quality menu offerings.

These new melanges of Chinese, Japanese and Korean places have been popping around for a while. They have very little in common with authentic cuisine, but rather cater to somewhat less educated taste of the public. The sushi rolls certainly don't have grade A tuna and you will take a risk eating them. Left have of mine on the plate.... More

The food at this restaurant is outstanding! My son visited first and came home with rave reviews. Ever since we order at least once a week. What I enjoy is that the food doesn't feel heavy and greasy. There's something about the ingredients that make the food taste more healthy. I don't feel like falling asleep after a meal.

I have eaten several times at this restaurant and my new goal is to try everything on the menu! I just had the Chicken coconut soup and the spicy tuna roll for lunch today and it was so delicious. Seriously, I am trying something new every time I go.

Busy Friday night, took about 15 minutes to get seated. Good service and good dinners. Tried the drink special and enjoyed it, also had fried bananas for dessert! Would recommend this restaurant.

Ichiban had great food, and an nice clean, and funky vibe. (surprising for Colchester...LOL) I have been here several times, and enjoy the sushi and hibachi dinners. They do not have an actual hibachi table, but prepare hibachi style dinners in the kitchen, that are simply wonderful. They have creative drinks at the bar, that are especially yummy! I wasn't...

The food is consistently good, from the salad dressing to the main course. My wife loves the hot and spicy dishes while I stick with the sweet and sour. Atmosphere and service are excellent. Glad we have something like this so close by!

This place is a good spot for families, friends, couples, or even professionals looking for a bonding experience with their peers/clients. I've been there a few times and the only problem I've ever encountered was the wait time. Sometimes its hard to get a table.
