Aside from one long meal on a Sunday at the Hibachi, this has been our consistent go to for sushi and we pretty much sit in the front sushi bar area. Like the vibe, service is good, sushi and rolls fresh, tempura app nicely done...More

Very fresh, very tasty sushi. I had the snowcrab salad which is best in town. The tuna sashimi was delicate and very fresh. And it was happy hour with Ichiban draft beer which is hard to find.

Whew! Just the best sushi in town by far! Always fresh! Always delicious! Seating is always available! Service has always been good! Pricing is fair for getting all of these things! I enjoy sitting at the bar, but table seating is just fine. You can...More

My family and I visited Ichiban for dinner. I admit I am not a fan of sharing a hibachi meal with 6 other people I don't know, but this was not the case on our visit. The prices of the entrees is about the same...More
