A bit pricey, but sushi and hibachi are worth it

Ichiban has always been one of my favorites for sushi and hibachi. It's a bit pricey, but usually worth it. The sushi is always very fresh and the presentation nice. The hibachi is expensive, but probably one of the best in BR. If going on a Friday or Saturday night, be sure to have a reservation... read more

Always love the food here! Hibachi is a great experience and their chefs are very entertaining. Sushi and entrees are always a tasty experience! Service is hit or miss. I LOVE the wok seared edamame is my favorite!

This is the worst Hibachi experience I've ever had. We clearly were celebrating my daughter's 10th birthday (as evidenced by the cake in tow) and the cook did not flip, toss, or juggle a single thing. The whole reason we selected Hibachi versus regular Asian fare was for the "entertainment" piece of the dining experience. What's worse is that when... More

If you are looking for good Hibachi food in Baton Rouge, I can't stress enough that you go to Ichiban. The food is great and the hibachi chefs personalities are great. Ask them and they'll make you anything out of food. The Sushi is also great too. This is the only restaurant in Baton Rouge that makes Clear Mushroom soup,... More

We eat at Ichiban about twice a year and it never disappoints. Pink Lady Roll and Aphrodite Roll are my favorites! Usually good service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

I enjoy eating the delicious sushi rolls every chance I get. The rock and roll sushi are my favorite. Not to mention the awesome saki.
