Restaurant: I’d like to recommend the restaurant “ICHIBAN” restaurant asiático.
It is along the Paseo in Torrox Costa (paseo Maritimo) tel 952637555, they provide Chinese food, sushi, and Thai.
Why do I want to recommend them?
1 the food is excellent and very reasonably priced.
2 they speak English. (which is helpful)
3 and most importantly; I have taken an elderly lady in a wheelchair there to lunch 5 times now, the staff are amazing, very accommodating and kind, they see her coming and rush to put the ramp down for the wheelchair, they readily move the table to get her seated comfortably, nothing seems to be too much trouble when it comes to serving the food, also, as a man my friend in the wheelchair (a lady of 89 years) needed to go to the toilets and one of the staff, a young lady immediately recognised the need of another female to accompany her to the toilet and she even waited with her and brought her back to the table.
I hope you can publish this as they deserve at least 5 stars.
