Ichiban (一番)

So what does Ichiban actually mean? Ichiban (一番) means ‘number 1’ in Japanese. The Japanese language has numerous numeric suffixes that are used depending on the subject matter;”-ban” is only one of many ways to turn “ichi” (“one”) into “first”. Which mean at Ichiban Charleston, We are Number 1!

We love the idea Japanese & Asian Fusion, we want to serve the lowcountry and chucktown the best Japanese & Asian Fusion food.

We are featured in Charleston Tourism as Best Sushi & Asian Fusion food.

"When we started Ichiban Charleston, it was tough, we didn’t know where to begin, designing the restaurant was the hardest part to begin since the building was 30 years old and there was many places to fix. After we have opened our first year, we have understand that the only way for us to stay in business, we must do better than everyone else! Thank you for all your support!"
