I was very disappointed in this place. The service was rude and the sushi tasted old...Definitely got Tokyo Japanese Steak House and Sushi if you want good sushi. Han the Sushi Man is good as well.

I have been here maybe three times for lunch over the years, and it never made my favourites list. However, based on the reviews I now decided to try it for dinner. No doubt was the sushi and sashimi as well as the presentation great! The atmosphere was good and service was OKish. What I really didn't like was that... More

Love Sashimi - enjoyed it throughout the world from Tokyo, San Francisco, Manhattan; etc ... And none any fresher or more expertly prepared than little Ichiban in Joplin, Mo??? ... Not exactly on the coast - and definitely not where you'd expect to find world-class Sashimi/Sushi. Don't know how they do it; just enjoy and be glad you found this... More

Love this place. I moved away but always stop in for a meal when I come through Joplin. The older guy who runs the place could be more friendly but other than that, great place for sushi.

I have eaten here four times and I have yet to be disappointed. The sushi/rolls have always been delicious and fresh, egg rolls/crab Rangoon delicious and entrees are really good. Service is attentive and very friendly. A true surprise for Joplin, I have to admit.

I have been eating at Ichiban since arriving in Joplin in early 2005. This has been, and continues to be my "go to" place. Food is excellent, and staff remains wonderful. NEVER a bad meal.
