The size of the portions were large enough to satisfy even a "big eater". The show the chef put on was entertaining. The flavor was what I expected and didn't disappoint.

The food is high quality and portions more than ample - attractive features of this well-run and clean establishment. My favorites are the soft shell crab appetizer (a small meal in itself) and the fried rice, prepared hibachi style by an entertaining chef. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in the Syracuse area, easy to find and with... More

I have eaten here many times over the past 30+ years, and have always been very satisfied with my meal at the hibachi table. Of the several restaurants in the Syracuse area that prepare food this way, this is the best. The restaurant is kept spotlessly clean, and is nicely arranged and decorated. The prices, while on the high side,... More

This is the restaurant that got me hooked on Japanese food-- pork dumplings, AKA: "gyoza", especially-- several years ago when I came here for a birthday party. Ever since, it's been one of my favorite places to go for special occasions. Right when you walk in the door, you know you're in for a fabulous and unique meal: the decorations... More

Our only problem with Ichiban in the past was the relatively high prices for sit-down hibachi-style dinners, but now they have introduced (slightly) smaller portion of the same great food at a considerably reduced price - on what they call the "kids menu." The portions are great for seniors - or those passing through. If you haven't been to Ichiban... More

My girlfriend and I came here for Valentines Day. The place was packed but everything was very well organized. They did a great job for the amount of people that were coming in. I highly recommend making reservations before you go even if it's not a special occasion. The Hibachi was awesome; she put on a nice show while preparing... More

three of us went there on a Thursday evening around 6ish for dinner, we were seated rather quickly. The waitress was polite but really didn't attempt to explain what drinks or dinners were available. The soup was as good as Campbell's, the salad dressing was terrible, the cook was very emotionless as he prepared our meals. I had the Steak... More
