Ichiro Japanese Restaurant is a beloved local establishment serving authentic Japanese cuisine in San Diego for over 30 years. As one of the city’s original Japanese restaurants, Ichiro’s aims to provide excellent Japanese food and hospitality in a warm, welcoming environment. Ichiro’s extensive menu features traditional Japanese dishes like bento boxes, sushi, noodle soups, and shrimp tempura. Signature items include the salted lemon salmon, juicy chicken katsu curry, and perfectly seared shabu shabu. Every dish highlights flavors like ginger, soy, and sesame to provide a taste of Japan. While staying true to tradition, Ichiro’s also caters to Californian tastes by avoiding overly fishy flavors. In addition to flavorful dishes, Ichiro’s is celebrated for its outstanding sushi program. The skilled sushi chefs prepare pristine cuts of tuna, yellowtail, salmon, and other seafood. Creative rolls include tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, and an impressive selection of vegetarian maki. The sushi bar provides entertaining views of the artful preparation. Ichiro’s also offers a full bar with an excellent selection of Japanese whiskey, sake, and beer. Customers love pairing their meals with a frosty Asahi or a cold glass of Junmai sake. Private tatami rooms provide the perfect setting for an intimate dinner or special occasion.
