Utah Sushi Roll Expert Review:
Our expert reviews take into account four factors: food quality, cleanliness of location, service and price. Ratings are on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being outstanding. One thing to note is that an average restaurant with an average experience is a 3. Our rating for this Restaurant is as follows:

Overall Rating: 3.375
Ichiban Sushi and Asian Grille  was a nice and tasty sushi restaurant.  It’s located downtown, just down the street from Red Ginger Bistro on State Street and about 34th south. Like Red Ginger, they are a half priced sushi restaurant, so the prices on most of the menu items are half cut in half, which is a good deal.  I wanted to try somewhere new and I was with my wife who is a non-sushi eater.  This was a good choice because they have a sushi and Chinese menu that is the best of both worlds.  We’ve tried a number of restaurants in the valley and all over Utah and she said their orange chicken was one of her favorites.  It’s a bit more spicy than orange and we both loved it.
Food Quality: 3.5

The food quality was pretty good here.  Not as good as some other restaurants we’ve been to, but the fish tasted fresh and the sauces were tasty. There is average sushi and there is high quality and I’d say they are somewhere in the middle of that, on par with Red Ginger Bistro up the street.

Cleanliness: 3
The restaurant is located in an older part of town with a lot of older buildings but the restaurant was nice and everything we saw was clean.  They had a nice gazebo on the outside and rather new looking booths on the inside.  No worries for cleanliness here.

Service: 3
The service was typical of many sushi restaurants which is something that needs a little work.  Don’t get me wrong, the service was fast, just not overly friendly.  I think it’s a culture and language thing, but if you’re going to drop $20-$40 on a meal for two you’d like a warmer greeting.  We were thanked multiple times for our service, just never with a smile.  I’d hope that if we were more regular we’d get nicer treatment, but that’s something that 95% of the restaurants we go to need help with.  I’d say it was better than Red Ginger Bistro up the road which I quite liked.

Price: 4
Again the price is good as they have half priced sushi rolls.  I ordered two specialty rolls in the Tiger Eye and Fire Dragon and they were only about $6 a piece which is pretty standard.  Once you’ve had all-you-can-eat sushi or half-priced rolls it’s hard to go back to another place and pay full price for your sushi rolls.
