Ordered to go hibachi and sushi. They were super quick getting it ready. Portions were pretty big in the hibachi meal. The sushi was great. They provided all the utensils needed plus all the yummy sauces.

Outstanding lunch hibachi options. In fact, I was really impressed with the extensive lunch menu. The steak hibachi was fantastic, cheap and enough for two meals. The soup was good as well as the seaweed salad.

Have never tried the Ichiban here, but decided to try as we were close by. The atmosphere is very nice, service is good and the food was great. The only problem is traffic getting there, but worth the trouble.

Ichiban is a family favorite whether at the grill or sushi bar. Godzilla and Kobe rolls are scrumptious. Hibachi (filet, chicken, shrimp or scallops) is a dish with which you can’t go wrong. And, the long time staff members are attentive and fun.

Hibachi is all about the performance and the entertainment. The food was good, the servers were nice and the entertainment from the chefs was fun. Would definitely go back.
