Booked a bar seating, was placed upstairs in a restaurant vibe so wasn't what we wanted at all. Chap then asked if we were in the wrong seat and when we mentioned we were nothing was done. left after 30 mins. Really cool place no doubt, but this just ruined the experience
Second time round in 10 days, tried different dishes and they were amazing super tasty! Defo going back soon
The food was delicious as well as the upstairs seating being so beautiful.
Great food and great service for a good price point.
We arrived early and I asked if they could find us seats earlier and they were very accommodating. They sat us down straight away. The service was quick and because we had not been there before the person serving us explained the menu.
Ichibuns is super. Gorgeous food, great atmosphere, and excellent staff. Loved it. Already planning my next visit. I want everything on the menu.
When I booked no one told me that we had to leave the table after 1.5 hours. Rushed dinner!
Had such a fantastic meal here, food was amazin, service was so fast and friendly and the vibe is awesome! Defo coming back and defo recommend!!!
Amazing food, service and ambiance nothing to take away from this restaurant, will definitely come back.
The design of the place delivers a awesome Japanese experience! Everything was delicious: the Mushroom and Prawn & Garlic Chive Gyozas, Wagyu Niku Udon and Veggie Burger. The staff were lovely! The music in this place is quite loud. We didn't mind but you might. Ichiban in Japanese means number 1 and this place is certainly deserves this play on words :-)
Very lovely tasty food with loads of variety to choose from, friendly staff!
The food was extremely good and the decoration vas very nice, though the service could have been better.
Seats were quite uncomfortable, I stayed there for 2 hrs and I ended up with pain in my back (though my husband didn't). Also, we were waiting for the desserts menu and for the bill quite a while, ending up having to call the waiters because they wouldn't come! And it wasn't very crowded. Also, I had to keep my handbag and jacket with me, and there wasn't a hook nor the seat had backrest and the table was super small, so I had to eat with the handbag on my lap and also we had to put the drinks and the sauces tray in the window sill to gry and fit all the plates on the tiny table we had.
We were looking forward to experience ICHIBUNS as it had been recommended. However my booking hadn’t been identified when we arrived, but given a table anyway. Then I received a call 30 mins later, from the restaurant asking if i was coming as table still available.
Food was excellent, atmosphere lively, loved the environment. Don’t go if your planning on a relaxing meal. Definitely worth the experience
This was my third visit to Ichibuns, and it is always a hit! The buzz is lively, with cool decor & funky music playing in the background, lots of chatter but not too much noise that you can't have a conversation. The food is delicious, have never been let down.. I have my staples that I order every time, and then I'll always try a couple of new dishes. Always on point!
Good food, good ambiance, good music! Definately go there and do not forget to go to the toilet
Great meal, very cool ambience. Read some complaints regarding music but we didn't find it too loud or unpleasant. Appetizers, ramen and burgers were excellent. Sushi was just fine. Nothing special but not bad at all. Glad we went.
This is such a great restaurant the food is tasty and really reasonable price and the vibe is great.
Only slight complaint is that the main course came whilst we were still on starters and felt a little rushed. But it’s minor - this is well worth a visit
Great food, very inventive and innovative, particularly for the price that it’s at! I will definitely be returning. Would recommend the Hamburger Spring Rolls; they were amazing!
Locale molto carino a Chinatown. Arredamento particolare, piatti di ottima qualità e prezzi onesti. Decisamente consigliato!
I had been here before and had an enjoyable time. So I was excited to return. The waiter forgot our starter, forgot our side order, gave me the wrong order, we weren’t given cutlery, or condiments. They tried to give us drinks we didn’t order which must have been for a different table. We kept having to flag down staff, the service was so poor I wouldn’t go back ever again.
Great. Recommended alreadybto friends and family..
After about 15mins of being sat down, the waiter came up to us to say we only have the table booked for 1.5hrs as they are fully booked (which is fair enough but I wished we were told this as soon as we arrive). We asked for a couple of minutes to look at the menu but the waiter then disappeared for a good 15mins more to take other's orders. This was quite frustrating given that he was rushing us to order at the start so that we can clear up the table in the allotted time but then disappeared for ages. Food was good, good decor too. Shame we felt a bit rushed.
Great. Got seated straight away. And ordered the sharing platter of sushi. Definitely recommend it, if you’d like a bit of everything.
Fun casual Japanese style diner. Good atmosphere, fun decor, good background music perfect for a pre theatre bite to eat or before heading into soho
Promised a birthday surprise should we order the dessert thus nothing offered
Food wasnt great however the restaurant was lively, good atmosphere and very quirky.
Food was very nice. Service upstairs was good as well. However, the people at the reception were not very welcoming.
Nice interior and friendly staff.
Spicy tuna taco was delicious but tiny and overpriced. Gyoza were okay.
Unfortunately, one bite from the end, I found a hair baked into my spring roll. Staff were apologetic and the item was removed from my bill.
Would have been nice to have had the whole bill comped for the gross hair situation - didn’t get a very good impression therefore.
The ichibun burger is absolutely delicious. Really cool place, I'd recommend getting a table upstairs or downstairs as there is more atmosphere. Cool music
Tasty wholesome Japanese cuisine. Extremely professional and well mannered service. Enjoyed our experience thoroughly. Music may have been slightly too loud but the kids really enjoyed it!
Food was great, though menu options weren’t extensive. Service was a bit slow (took ages until we could get our order in) but the food and drinks arrived quickly once ordered. Overall, a top notch eatery in Chinatown, with very cool ambience to boot.
Superb atmosphere, wonderful food, you could spend the entire evening here! The music was brilliant.
The team obviously were told to turnover nice and quickly so, therefore, made it apparent that they wanted us out quickly, so was super pronto on getting our orders out, but placing us at the top of the stairs meant we were almost underneath all the food going past us.
Was excited to come back, but other than the crispy chicken starter and the bao (which was sold out) I think I'll leave it for a few years.
2 of us went on a Saturday for an early birthday dinner - 6pm. We sat downstairs and there were perhaps 2 or 3 other tables of people down there - it was very quiet. Music is loud but as there were not yet many people around, we had no trouble hearing each other. Service was great but just much too fast. You should get a table for 90 mins but we’d been served our starter and main course and were almost done within just half an hour. Left us too full for dessert, which we had intended to get. The food was great - we shared a plate of sushi and a plate of dynamite shrimp - really tasty. Then we had a wagyu burger each. Delicious but just served too close together. We would have liked to spend the full 90 mins there but felt rushed out, which was weird as it was so quiet. Bizarre. I would go back, but I’ll be sure to clearly state that we want to leave a small gap between courses next time.
Amazing decor and drinks.
But the wrong beer came twice and one dish was forgotten. Also took over 10 mins to be acknowledge upon entering the building. And staff had to be asked to actually serve us.
Great food, fun atmosphere. We went there for my daughter's 12th birthday and would highly recommend
Super tasty (but naughty!) food, fast service and great value!
Great venue!!!! please check it out!!! Also the toilets are fab!!
Nice place - attentive staff. Great food if you like Sushi and burgers!
