On a trip to Asheville to visit family we had dinner at Ichiban to celebrate our son’s 8th birthday. A local favourite, the advanced booking for our group of 8 (4 adults; 4 children) was prudent as we arrived to find a line of diners....More

My family and I went to Ichiban Japanese Restaurant on a Tuesday night and were surprised to see the wait line out in the parking lot. After we checked we were told that the wait was for the Hibachi and that we could be seated...More

Waiter was great. The food and the cook were awful!!! The cook made very bad jokes that were inappropriate, using race. He was a young cook. The food was just awful and bland.

We love to eat at Hibachi restaurants. I was excited to see Ichiban had opened since my last visit to Asheville where we at at Asaka (more of an express place). I like when they cook it in front of you. The restaurant was very...More
