Sushi in Indy/What to order?
If you're down on the south side, a new Japanese restaurant called Ichiban opened recently. It's quickly become one of our favorite restaurants in the city. I would recommend that you sit at the sushi bar and start with some edamame and a bowl of miso soup and then just ask the sushi chef Li to help you decide. He's a very nice guy! I prefer the nigiri because I love the subtle flavors of the fish, but chef Li makes some stunningly beautiful rolls that look like works of art when plated. It's almost a shame to eat them, but I get over that real fast!
Here's a review from Nuvo,
It kind of knocks them for the service, but the service has been fine everytime we've been there, whether at a table or at the sushi bar.
Edited to add:
That Nuvo review has their hours screwed up. The hours that they have listed for Friday and Saturday are their lunch hours. They reopen in the evening (at 5:00pm I think, please call them to check) for dinner. The hours for the other days look right.
H2O Sushu on Broad Ripple Ave is very good. I like to start with the Edamame, then do a few nigiri (especially yellow tail and/or amberjack), and follow that with a roll with some spice and some crunch. The entrees are good, and worth trying. Make sure to save room for some of their home made ice cream.
