I have eaten at Ichiban twice this past week. I have had the tempura is udon and the shrimp tempura. The miso soup and salad that accompanies every meal is wonderful. The service is excellent.

We celebrated our twin daughters' 25th birthday with a delicious three course hibachi dinner cooked in front of us. The chef was very entertaining and skilled. Fresh seafood and ample portions. We had a reservation and they had our table ready.
