We started going to this restaurant few years ago and it was okay. Now its so dirty and we talked to the manager so many times about the restaurant and hibachi grill being dirty everything is so greasy and disgusting. I don't step a foot in there anymore

We were somewhat reluctant to try this place because of others customers comments. We went in at 6PM on a Friday night. The place was crowded but we were seated at a habachi table within two minutes. Our table had 3 other persons already seated and our group was three. There was still room for another 4 persons at the... More

We were in the area and saw that google appeared to have good reviews for this place so we expected better. The waitress was rude and uninviting, carried on a side conversation while serving others. The food came quickly but was very bland and boring. The restaurant's atmosphere was sad, no music playing or any conversation between people. We will... More

You have a choice of sitting in one section with family/friends or at the hibachi grill. Food quality great and portion size beyond adequate. Friendly service. Accomodating

Still hurts that the staff is the problem and management doesn't care. I just cant get over that i tried this place again after they treat you like you dont matter. Which is obvious.... YOU DONT!

I live in this town and this is/was my go to spot for friends and family. We walked out due to a snotty nose servers comment. And to top it off a half hearted sorry from a so called manager that didnt show her face till we were walking out. All birthdays, anniversaries and most events that me and my... More

20% off regular sushi rolls for dinner (every night?) was a nice surprise! No free miso ($3??) must be where they make up the difference though.

Friendly, decently run, Americanized "Japanese" joint with fairly-priced, well constructed "fusion sushi." Aga-dashi dofu was below par but rest of food was good. Noodles etc. standard but kinda hard to butcher those. Reasonable option in a college town food desert.

We had not been to a Japanese restaurant in years. Enjoyed the experience all the way from the soup and salad, to the chef show in cooking our food. Very tasty😃

These days sushi can be found in supermarkets, filling stations and on intercontinentale flights with obvious impact on the quality and freshness. Ichiban delivers good food. I had a miso soup, seaweed salade and a sushi-sashimi combo. With green tea. All good and tasty. I have had better, so no 5 star, but more often I had worse. I hate... More
