I came here because I read some of the TripAdvisor reviews and it looked decent and I was hungry for some hibachi. It was a nice looking place and looked clean. The lady at the bar was very nice to me. My food came out fast. The soup really had no taste and it had a lot of noodles in... More

Used to come here on special occasions. The crystal bubble sushi is still awesome. The salad and soup are great and the shrimp hibachi is very good but the price is too much. Good portions. Would come again but only with a coupon if available.

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner here. It has been a favorite of ours for several years but the food and experience have diminished significantly. We were served chicken noodle soup not the clear soup of years passed. The ginger salad dressing was bitter and the salad watery. We both ordered fried rice(extra charge)and the seafood plate,consisting of scallops,shrimp and... More

Facing formitable new competition from Mitsuba on the west, and SakiBomb in Cicero, Ichiban is maintaining its position as the best Japanese restaurant in the area. Not only is the food delicious, but the portions are even larger than they used to be. The soft shell crab appetizer was outstanding! Everyone in our party of seven gives Ichiban five stars!

Full hibachi dinner is not cheap - but sitting at the sushi bar and choosing a few appetizers and rolls isn't too expensive. Amazingly fresh sushi. Friendly staff that doesn't seem to turn over as much as other places. Only slight con is you often have to wait a little too long for your table, and then a little too... More

We ordered the shrimp and vegetable tempura dinner, pork habatchi and chicken teriyaki dinner. The portions were so big we could have taken 1/3 home at least...or shared 1 portion. The staff were very friendly.

I went to Ichiban for sushi. The hostess offered to seat me in whichever area I wished and I chose to sit at the bar since I was alone. The hostess also suggested the Monday evening special, a four piece sushi sampler. There was not a lot of choice on the sushi menu when it comes to combo dinners. I... More

Great intimate atmosphere with open cooking tables or rooms for larger groups Japanese decor, costumed servers, entertaining chefs! Wonderful food!!! Has Sushi bar also, pricey, no free soda refills, kids need to be supervised get cranky as food is cooked can't really roam around d/t hot surface and fire demonstrations by chefs! Love this place, but save up your money... More
