Our party numbered seven. Six adults and one teen. We ate on the hibachi wing of the restaurant. We were seated quickly and beverages were started shortly thereafter. This restaurant has become a birthday tradition in our family. It offers items for almost anyone. The ginger salad was fresh and excellent. All of our choices were cooked as asked (... More

We traveled to Michigan from Florida to celebrate my mothers 90th birthday. The people at Shanghai Ichiban went to great lengths to make sure this was a special day for her and my family. The chef that prepares the meals at the table not only prepares a tremendous dinner, but provides an atmosphere and entertainment that unmatched at other Japanese... More

Very good restaurant with loads of food at low cost. Had Sweet and Sour Shrimp. Wife had Cashew Chicken. Both meals come with choice of four soups and steamed or fried rice. Unlimited drinks. More food than we could eat. Sauces excellent. Very polite waitress. Prices $ 7.75 or $6.95 for lunch. Ample parking.

We visited the Japanese hibachi side for a birthday celebration. The service was great, the chef was entertaining and funny, but the food was just ok, so I couldn't give this an excellent rating. If you are going for the entertainment, then I would definitely recommend this restaurant, but if you are going for the food, you may be disappointed.

My wife and I had lunch at Shanghai Ichiban Chinese Restaurant recently. We each had a very nice dinner that was both flavorful and filling. Both came with an egg roll too. Hot tea capped off the meal. We had an "in-training waiter." He did a very good job for his second day there. We wished him well in his... More

When we find a great place to eat we usually stick to it but a family member begged me to try this place. This tastes like home made Chinese! Needless to say, my spouse and I haven't looked back to our "former" favorite. Great service, excellent taste and reasonable prices!
