good show and good food

My first time in this type of restaurant so I have no frame of reference to judge the experience. I enjoyed my time there and watching the skilled cook prepare the food. Soup was ok, mainly chicken broth and the only scallop appetizer was deep fried. It was nice once the breading was removed. The... read more

I have not been to Ichiban in a while. It used to be one of my favorite restautants, but it is the kind of place you really do not go alone to eat. I was excited to take my great niece and her mother there on Frida evening. My great niece had never been and I thougt she would enjoy... More

First I asked for my fried rice without veggies mixed in and I was told it had to be cooked in the kitchen, which is no problem. 5 minutes after everyone else was eating their rice cooked table side I still did not have any rice. The waitress told me it takes a while because of the kitchen. This is... More

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

Ichiban is best place to eat in syracuse and surrounding areas. My wife and I will go here for every occasion. We started going here ten years ago and have been addicted ever since. The fried rice is amazing. The staff is friendly and American. The steak is soo good talking about it makes me hungry. They have a great... 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
