Delicious, clean, and great service in an otherwise fast food wasteland! My boyfriend enjoyed the chicken and shrimp hibachi and right now I'm wishing I had some leftovers of my vegetable roll and cucumber roll!

I've only ever had their habachi, which is always good. I've had better habachi in New York, but for Williamsport, I guess it's pretty good. Once the Japanese little league team came in to celebrate their win at the Little League World Series while I was there. It was cute. Also, like all habachi, pretty pricey.

Loved the people, the good food and the attentive service but this restaurant needs a little attention to detail and cleaning. The paper screens in the windows are splattered with grease and other food stuffs. Off putting to look at, we admit. There were dusty corners and dingy looking carpets. We enjoyed our meal but the ambience could be a... More

I love hibachi grills and this restaurant is no exception! The cooks are always very friendly and talented and the food is great too! Definitely a fun dinner and "show" for the family.

First of all don't come here when it is hot and humid out because you will swelter once you are in front of the grill! They started a new 2 for 20 menu where you can get an appetizer and then hibachi as well. They even have sushi on the ap menu. This is a great value for the amount... More

We always enjoy our meal and the 'show' when eating at Ichiban. We've visited numerous times and the food is always fresh, flavorful and plenty. Wasn't sure how I would feel sitting with strangers the first time we went but now I really like it.

Had the teppanyaki for me and the fiance, seemed reasonably priced, came in massive quantities and was completely delicious. Best teppanyaki/hibachi I've had yet!

This is the only place in town that you can get dinner and show!! The atmosphere is very unique and captivating. The food is always fresh and hot as it is probably prepared right in front of your eyes. I feel it is a great value with everything u get along with your main course. The place is always clean...

If you get to know the owners, they treat you like gold! They love to see familiar faces and will make u part of their family. The service is quick and warm. Sushi is fresh and they always have something new! Couldn't ask for better Asian cuisine!

Ichiban's beat all of their competitors hands down! They definitely rate very high on our list due to their quality of fish, variety and monthly menu changes, cleanliness, and hospitality! I have heard that people are eating at the other place because of the all you can eat sushi rolls.... I would much rather have a decent amount of food... More
