Had an opportunity to try this restaurant out a few days ago. Not a big fan of Japanese cuisine but felt like trying something new so we gave it a try for lunch. We went to the "from the kitchen side" (my terminology, not theirs) and not the "chef at the table" side since it was only lunch and didn't... More

We used to only go there for the teppanyaki, which is good, but letely I have noticed that I can get some really good sashimi and rolls for a good price as well for take out. $20 for a nice large order of good quality sashimi seem like a pretty good deal to me. Certainly enough to fill me up.

My sister took me out to lunch one day with my nephew to this restaurant. It was great as the chef prepared our food right in front of us with great skill. The food tasted awesome. I hope I can go back there really soon.

My friends and I dined to celebrate the end of my pregnancy at Ichiban in Fox Chapel on a Wednesday evening. We sat at the bar and enjoyed cocktails (just Shirley Temples for me) for the Happy Hour. The drink specials were very reasonable and so were the appetizers. For $3 a plate we sampled the Pork Gyozas and Rock... More

Went to ichiban for birthday celebration along with other customers celebrating their child's birthday. We went hibachi. The cook lacked personality, did not entertain at all. Children in party celebrating b'day expecting entertainment. His customer service was HORRIBLE. Made customer wait while he cleaned grill to get more seafood sauce. I personally did not tip cook. If u are celebrating... More

I absolutely love this restaurant. Whether it's hibachi with the fire, or regular the food is great. I personally love the hibachi steak. Prices are a bit high, but the food portions are on the large side. Great place for friends, couples, families, and especially birthdays. The employees have a great birthday celebration, including a disco ball. EAT HERE!

My wife and I went to Ichiban with some friends. However, we've been there for birthdays, and parties before. The employees and management never disappoint! We sometimes get take out and have dinner at home. When we want to eat in the restaurant, we always sit at the hibachi. The chefs put on a good show; fun and fire!
