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!

Sushi here had nothing to do with the real thing. This place is not by any mean authentic. If you want fancy - yes, elegant - yes, good service - yes. But forget about food. They had a chance but it was ruined by rice. Rice used for sushi and rolls was overcooked and wrong type. I'm not a pro... More

Ichihan has both sushi and hibachi tables. We have a standing weekly dinner for sushi here. Very fresh. Quality ingredients. Great flavor. Tried pretty much everything here. Nothing I didn't like or at least appreciate even if it wasn't my particular taste.

I've eaten here quite often over the years,but I tried the pork belly fried rice last night, and it was phenomenal!!! I now have a new favorite!(along with the Moscona roll)

Great Food! Wait was 45 mins but my party spent that time at the bar, therefore it didn't seem as long. Drinks were good! Food was Good! Our server wasn't the greatest but I'd definitely visit again!

Every thing was incredible! They serve the best quality of food! The steak, chicken, and shrimp were fresh, delicious, and perfectly cooked. The only thing that i don't like about this place in comparison to other places (where I ordered from the Hibachi menu) is that you can't sit at a private table and order Hibachi food AND you can't...

Favorite date place of my girlfriend and I. We always get two snow crab salads, a moscona roll (for me), an aphrodite roll (for her), and a rotating third roll. These two are the best sushi rolls I have ever had...especially the moscona roll ;)
