I'm a regular here and this place is awesome!!! Sometimes I dine at the sushi bar and other times, at the Teppanyaki grills. Ichibiri has been open for over 30 years so this place is a must-visit restaurant if you're in the area.

If you are looking for exceptional or authentic, this probably is not your first choice. Ichibiri includes standard table service, sushi bar, and teppan grill.
