Our son loves sushi so we gave this restaurant a try after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was excellent and our waiter was attentive and helpful

Found this place on Trip Advisory while on a our weekend getaway. You will not be disappointed if you like Habachi! Such a nice welcome surprise in the middle of no where.

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!
