Took my nephew here for his birthday, he loved it. He got a hat, at fruit boat, and hit the oriental Gong. also a free spin for future visit gift certificate. Also a $30 option is an ice cream cake. was good and enough for the entire table. Good show, food was good and reasonably priced.

I've been coming here for sushi for years but I have also done the hibachi experience. Both always meet my expectations. Sushi is the dining area is great....always very quick to get the food out which is nice. Ichiban has always been my favorite sushi spot.

This is a great place to go for lunch, suggest going with a group of people for best benefit. They pretty much double their prices for dinner. You must try their hibachi selections. They all great, and steak is my favorite. The service here is very good. I must try!

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've visited in a long time. Food (steak teriyaki in my case) was excellent and fresh, price was reasonable. The service was prompt, and the house margarita was as it was supposed to be. My wife worked for a Japanese bank in NYC for 11 years and knows good Japanese food, and she along... More

We had a Sweet 16 Birthday at Ichiban and what a great job they did. The aloud us to put balloons on each chair in our party. They actually included a balloon of their own. The food was out of this world, probably the best hibachi I have ever had. The staff was attentive and our chef was really funny... More

We were seated immediately. We choose to sit in the regular dining area instead of the Hibachi side. Wanted a quiet meal. And that is what we got. Very crowded on this Friday evening. I do not eat Japanese food much but my friend does. He ordered some House Special Sake-Nigori. I think it was $16 for a decanter. Served... More
