Whenever we visit Bethlehem, PA - we have a meal at Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse. The sushi is really good, given that it is not at the ocean. We have eaten there often and never had anything less than good, more often than not, the dishes are very good to excellent. It is hard to suggest a single item as, really,... More

Great friendly service. Sushi, as well as other food was very good. Clean well kept place. Nice bar and great hibachi area. We will be back. Prices are very good for the amount of food you get.

We passed through this area while driving back from vacation so we stopped here for dinner. We ordered a selection of rolls an regular sushi. I have been to hundreds of sushi restaurants (from the east coast to the west coast and many visits to Japan). The sushi here was pretty average, but passable. We walked in at prime time... More

Good and varied menu of both the usual and less standard fare. Prompt and courteous service for both sit down meals and take-out. Great ambiance and I like that they give chopsticks.

Food was prepared well and it was delish! And for my birthday, they worked well with my hubby to surprise me with balloons. They also give you a chance to spin the... More

My husband and i were staying overnight in the area on our way home to VA. I have been to many Hibachi-style restaurants around the country and this has been the most disappointing! Ordered gyoza and shumai as appetizers. They were undercooked and not served with the typical brown dipping sauce. The 2 sauces dished out for the food grilled... More

Went here for my son's confirmation dinner. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. We had to wait a little while for our chef so they comp'd us some Edamame, which was nice. The chef was good and the food was very good. We all had more than enough to eat. It is a little pricey but you get what... More

We were the only 3 people in the restaurant and the service was slow. I have bean coming since the opening and a loyal customer and still cannot get my drinks right. The chefs... More
