ichiban it's not

120 S Brand Blvd
Glendale, CA 91204
(818) 242-9966

price: $$
verdict: it's aight

my coworkers and i come here often after work when we need quasi japanese food quickly. i usually order their 3 item dinner combo meal...salmon teriyaki, gyozas, and tempura. over the past year and a half, this is what i noticed about their menu items:

-their salmon teriyaki piece keeps shrinking. the last time i checked, i'm NOT a smurf, so please give me the correct portion size. thank you.-they like to make tempura onion rings...which is such a good way to cheap you out.-their baked green mussels with the mayo on top is GROSS. yuck. barf.-they give you a lot of rice so you can fill up.-their sesame chicken are oily bits of meat nuggets.-i like their filtered tap water.

so my conclusion? you get exactly what you pay for. it's a cheap meal and you get ok tasting food. you usually get seated right away and parking is fine because there's a garage right across the street (i really love that). i guess at the end of a long, tiring day at work, finding the most delicious meal ever is not always the first thing on my mind.
