Worst sushi branch ever for ichiban. Bad service, moist sushi. Even found an insect on sushi, no action taken. Foreigner waitresses careless for service level

I've heard so many good reviews about this place and i was eager to try it. Honestly, i didn't find anything special about their sushi. The only reason i ate what I ordered is because i was too hungry.

Jbeil Branch. I had to sit and wait 30 minutes for every time I needed an order. Not to mention that every delivery or take away had the privilege over my orders, which took even more time. As far as I know, priority is for the customers, not takeaways, and if their business was booming, they should consider hiring more chefs. Not even half a star.

Citymall branch. We went there and were treated unprofessionally. The waiter seemed nonchalant about our existence. He made fun of us discretely when we asked for napkins. Our food took too much time to get ready even though there was hardly anyone else in the restaurant. The taste was ok, nothing special and for 31$ it honestly does not match up to the competition out there. Personally I would not go there again, nor to any of its branches. This obviously shows that there is no monitoring on the managers on duty and that people fed up of the service industry yet stay in it anyway are free to give the restaurant a bad image.

Antelias branch Tried to give it another try Again they had slow service They don't prioritise a la carte customers If an open sushi orders 50 pieces they don't let any of the chef begin your order until the open sushi orders are done. It is a hectic service The management should really think clearly about their employees tasks & Hire more if needed.

There are definitely better alternatives for "open sushi". The taste was okay, just not on par with what I'm used to when it comes to sushi. The ingredients didn't taste too fresh to me, the salmon was rather tangy, which was very disappointing.

I like it. I always go for the open sushi. The varieties they have are great, each piece has a unique taste and mix. It's a weekly destination for me, best cost effective open sushi I tried. But sometimes it's better than other times, they need to better work the rice, make it more mouth melting.

Less than average, sushi are fullly loaded with greasy rice so you cannot eat as much as you can for the open formula

Very average sushi. Portions are really small and nothing special at all. The crispy salmon salad is really tasty though.

Not bas at all ! But the way of the sushi display in the plate is not beautiful ! The sushi is tasty but too small and expensive ! The service is good enough !

Delicious food, good prices & the sushi pieces are smaller in size than other places, which is a positive thing to keep!

The waitress is cute and totaly friendly. The open sushi option is so cheap concidering how much people eat (not even mad).

Sushi here sucks. Avoid all you can eat at this place. They will do all they can to charge you more. Ripoff!
