4 of us went for dinner. We enjoyed the meal, the chef, the atmosphere. It was a great evening with great friends.

I've been here twice and love the show they put on while preparing the meal. They're extra friendly and the food is superb!! If you park under the delta hotel you can bring up your parking ticket and they will stamp it so you don't have to pay for parking. It's especially handy if the weather is bad. You simply... More

We were celebrating a couple of birthdays and were a table of 8. It was a tight squeeze around the tepanyaki grill, even though 2 youngsters were part of the group. Our group had combination menus, including lobster. This is not the best way to have lobster...overcooked. The scallops, shrimp, filet and chicken were much better. The kids were impressed... More

You know there is something wrong when a restaurant a block away from the MTS Centre is nearly empty on a night when the Jets are playing. There was no one in the teppanyaki section and only a handful of people in the sushi section. We've tried this place a number of times and they also seem to come up... More

Many years have passed since I last visited and yet I swear, not a single thing has changed. We were greeted by a kimono wrapped hostess and accompanied to a communal table, surrounding a grill top. Being the last to arrive, we might have felt as if we were crashing a party, but true to Winnipeg form, we were warmly... More

We sat in the Sushi section since the other areas were late bookings. Hiromi was the Sushi Chef and very accommodating even though we were sitting at a table and not the Sushi Bar. We ordered the Filet/Shrimp, and the Filet/Chicken….side of the fried rice which was average, chicken livers which were bland, couple sushi items that were….ok. Sorry, spoiled... More

The food at Ichiban is always delicious, but when it comes to the experience here are a couple of warnings: - Do not expect to be seated on time for your reservation, they are consistently 20min to an hour late per table (maybe a way to get you to spend money in the lounge ahead of time) - Every Sake...

We went to this restaurant as a group/business meeting. It was fun and great food. would definitely recommend. Restaurant is right outside the Delta Hotel so very convenient for hotel guests.

February is always a busy month for our extended family. Four of our members also happen to have birthdays in the month so we try to combine the celebrations on one night. We have gone to the Ichi Ban at various times over the last decade, with mixed results. This month marked our return after a disappointing family birthday visit... More
