Ichiban messed up my order once ever in ten years. I called and they had a dude at my door in like ten minutes. It's a good spot; food is good and customer service is great

Great food and right on time for how long it said they would take to deliver. Only wish they had a description of what is in all their sushi as I'm just starting to enjoy it!

Scout — 4/1/2011 5 out of 5 stars

I order from Ichiban on Mealeo regularly. They do a fantastic job. We usually get sushi and Japanese apps...they're always delicious and arrive within the stated time frame or sooner. Keep up the great work!

Very fast delivery

Mike — 5/26/2012 4 out of 5 stars

Super Fast, Very large quantities of meat. Only downside was the meat quality was a little subpar. We got the chicken teriyaki and it reminded me very much of the same thing ordered at a mall food court. Still, if you dont want to leave your place, and want alot of food fast, order from here!

Patrick — 8/14/2011 4 out of 5 stars

Wasn't as good as last time. Low mein and chicken in garlic sauce was a bit bland. Crab Rangoon were all pressed together.. they got stuck under one of the heavy cartons.

jean — 7/19/2011 4 out of 5 stars

Deanna — 6/2/2011 4 out of 5 stars

Ann — 2/4/2011 4 out of 5 stars

Chad — 10/31/2010 4 out of 5 stars

sushi was very good but driver called me several times when delivering my food to my employer, and then called me to complain that I wasted his time.

Michelle — 3/9/2018 3 out of 5 stars

Food was good but deliver took over an hour.

Holly — 9/21/2016 3 out of 5 stars

Ordered to be delivered by 12 pm, called and 12:10pm was told it would be there in 5 mins, but did not arrive until 12:35 pm. Love the food hate the service.

Mary — 8/5/2016 3 out of 5 stars

We ordered vegetable gyoza udon, but received no gyoza. The dish was just noodles, vegetables, and broth.

Mary — 11/25/2015 3 out of 5 stars

sushi is good but the delivery takes way too long i mean expect 1- 2 hour wait time . really

Angel — 11/1/2015 3 out of 5 stars

Meh, it wasn't so good.

Rene' — 12/28/2014 3 out of 5 stars

Ichiban has always been a personal favorite, but recently it goes further downhill with every order. This time the order took longer than usual to come, and when it finally came (I was starving! haha), I opened it to find that my food wasn't even full. The past few orders the general tso tofu has gotten smaller and smaller, it used to be enough for a couple of meals - now it's barely enough for one. If you're going to shrink the portions, maybe change the container sizes so it doesn't look like a half empty tupperware. It's really disappointing. I've been giving the benefit of the doubt that maybe it's a "bad night", but it's been some consistent bad nights if that's the case.

Jenna — 11/18/2014 3 out of 5 stars

We were charged an extra dollar for tofu but never received it

Rick — 8/10/2014 3 out of 5 stars

Order was supposed to arrive at 5:02-5:17pm but didn’t arrive until 5:50pm. The food was cold as well.

Mary — 12/23/2017 2 out of 5 stars

The food was alright. I won't order from Ichiban on Central again though. The order was late, but if you have ordered from online services, you are used to that. However, the delivery person would not come up to my apartment and asked me to come down to save him time for more deliveries. I had him rebate the tip. I won't be back.

Edward — 7/2/2017 2 out of 5 stars

This food was pretty bad. The Thai Pad had no sauce on it and tasted horrible. The lo mein was so-so. My past couple of orders from Ichiban have been very disappointing.

Lisa — 1/11/2017 2 out of 5 stars

The food has gone down hill and our order took two hours to arrive last night. (With two phone calls before it happened.)

Alissa — 9/25/2016 2 out of 5 stars

Delivery took well over an hour...close to 2. I was given excuses when I called to inquire where my food was as well as a bit of the blame game. Not at all happy and very disappointed. Food was good at least.

Holly — 8/6/2016 2 out of 5 stars

Late! And the sushi was just mediocre.

Stacy — 3/21/2016 2 out of 5 stars

Food took about an hour and a half not 45-60 min. Asked for no Cucumber but that was ignored.

Matt — 1/14/2016 2 out of 5 stars

Ordered food at 6:15, got it at almost 9:00, and it wasn't even very hot, even though they said they were making fresh food for me. Since this is not the first time I've waited a very long time, I won't be ordering from Ichiban again.

Michelle — 12/3/2015 2 out of 5 stars

Great if you like waiting over 1.5 hours for your food. Order was processed at 5:49 and didn’t get food until 7:35 (40 minutes later than told) and restaurant was rude when called to check on order. We’ve ordered from this place for over 10 years and this is the 3rd or 4th time recently this has happened... lesson learned. We’re finding a new place.

Amie — 5 hours ago 1 out of 5 stars

Ordered at 6:45 its now 8:13 still no food.

Danielle — 11/20/2017 1 out of 5 stars

Very disappointed in delivery which took 2 HOURS. They confirmed Mealeo order within 3 minutes of order placement, but 1 hour later after 2 phone calls and 15 minutes after Mealeo said food should have arrived the restaurant said they had "just" gotten the order and would rush it out and have it to us in 20 minutes. We should have canceled. It took another ENTIRE HOUR to deliver all while telling me it was just 2 minutes away. A little honesty and a realistic time table would have gone a long way. As it is, I would never order from them again.

Teresa — 3/24/2017 1 out of 5 stars

Delivery was ridiculously bad. Driver made me leave my office and wait for him. After waiting over 10 mins I went back to my office and told him to call me. I went back down stairs. He was still not there! Literally 5 phone calls back and forth with the driver. I would have not tipped but I already did it with my credit as I have never had a bad delivery in my life. I guess I've been lucky up until now. Great food but I will never be ordering delivery from this restaurant again.

August — 4/24/2016 1 out of 5 stars

Waited two hours for my order. The food came thrown around in the container, driver was rude. Food was cold that should have been warm.

Dan — 11/1/2015 1 out of 5 stars

If I could give 0 stars, I would. I ordered 2 hours ago and my food still isn't here. I called twice. Last time I called, they said it would be here in less than 5 minutes. That was 15 minutes ago....still waiting.

Danielle — 10/31/2015 1 out of 5 stars

I would leave ZERO stars if I could. I received my order but they forgot an item. When I called the restaurant, they refused to send the driver back out unless I paid an extra $2. When I said that's crazy they hung up on me. I had to contact Mealo's customer service team to resolve the issue.

Bryan — 5/24/2015 1 out of 5 stars

If I could give zero stars I would. I ordered food at 5:38 p.m. I called at 7:00 asking where my food was. They claimed they had "just seen" the order and it would be here in 20 minutes. It is now 7:39 p.m. and I still do not have my food. I called again and was told it was on the way. I will never again order from Ichiban. When I contacted order support through Mealeo I was told "they must have been very busy tonight." Really? That's all you can do? Meanwhile my 10 year old son sits here hungry waiting for his food. Bye bye Ichiban. And bye bye Mealeo. Never again.

Michelle — 1/18/2015 1 out of 5 stars

Unacceptable delivery time. Food is good but it takes OVER!!!! An hour EVERY single time for the food. Mostly an hour and a half. Absurd, and infuriating.

Michael — 12/21/2014 1 out of 5 stars

Delivery guy is super nice but the food is not the same since it switched owners. Very disappointed. Everything is so bland.

Nina — 3/30/2014 1 out of 5 stars

Ichiban has been around for years, and is very well known in Albany - especially for being fast. However, their food has progressively gotten worse over the years. Maybe it's management or ownership changes, but in any case the restaurant has little by little moved toward cheaper ingredients, less meat and more piles of scallions, more and more bland and inconsistent food in general. Tonight I ordered several combinations, appetizers and chef specialties for my family. The mongolian beef was gross and mostly scallions. The sweet and sour chicken was mostly clumps of fried junk. The egg rolls were ok I guess but always different. The fried dumplings were barely fried and very bland - also I swear the sauce it came with seemed to taste like there was a little cleaning liquid in it. The rice was very bland and without pork - which is a new one. I noticed this change beginning a long time ago, but for some reason I give them another chance. Tonight, however, was the last time I ever order from Ichiban again. Please do yourself a favor and order from somewhere else.
