One of Cardiff's longest-running Japanese restaurants, Ichiban opened on Cowbridge Road East in 2006 - the Albany Road branch came around a year later. 'Ichiban' translates as 'number one' or 'first', and this restaurant certainly lives up to its name.
The menu features an array of affordably priced, authentic dishes, including sushi rolls, sashimi, yakitori, tempura, soups, noodles, and bento boxes. Meanwhile, the drinks selection includes a number of Japanese beers, wines and sake.
