Love to come here to eat lunch and dinner. The chefs who do the hibachi are great. The food is always fresh.

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.

I really had a craving for sushi and sadly this was not the right place to get it satisfied. Service was bad, very sporadic. The sushi was horrible - overcooked mush rice, didn't even have the right type of rice. And the sushi was so sweet - I get that eel sauce is a bit sweetish, but this felt like... More

I eat sushi/sashimi at least once a week. I've tried every place in town and always return to Ichiban for their consistent quality. Its busy on weekend nights since the remodel so be prepared to wait and enjoy a drink at the new bar. This is owned and managed by a family that is dedicated to quality food and service.... More

Over the years Ichiban had its ups and downs. For a while we stopped going there. However, after the extensive renovation last year it moved back on our list of favorite restaurants in Baton Rouge. We enjoy for example their sashimi platter, their eel or their rainbow rolls. These days the restaurant is fairly crowded. Reservations are recommended.

The servers are great --it is the manager that should be fired! The "balding" Asian manager has the worst attitude. I have patronized Ichibah for years and the food is good but it is not enough to put up with that guy! I won't be returning until he is replaced with someone who knows how to run a restaurant!
