Ikebana Japanese Restaurant & Sushi
2901 Brownsboro Road

Robin Garr's rating: 71 points

Noise level: Silence reigned in an almost empty dining room. (Average sound level 61-65 dB.)

Accessibility: The entrance is accessible via a long ramp from the side parking area, but the big front doors are heavy. The restrooms are spacious but lack grab bars and other accessibility modifications.
