Dining at the bar

A friend and I met here on a Monday evening. We started at the bar for a glass of wine and ended up dining there too. The bartender was friendly and helpful. The house wines were good and the food even better. I had some sushi and she had a teriyaki meal. The miso soup was also good. We'd... read more

Was here to celebrate a birthday while visiting relatives in the area. We had a variety of meats and seafood, cooked to our liking while we watched. Portions were quite large. Cook was quite entertaining and the two children with us had a fun time. We thought prices were reasonable. Service was good.

Looks like they have cut a few corners with the Hibachi presentation. Not the experience we originally had and we have been here many times. Drinks were good, fair price. Our waitress was very good. All Steak was served well done, they specifically ask you what your preference is but it was all well done. We actually thought the shrimp... More

Large selection of hibachi meals and decent sushi, which is what we usually get. However, you can have a very long wait (say a half hour) if you are a small party (say two) and no one else shows up to share the grill. This has happened to us. Also, while Ichiban offers coupons, the never quite seem to work... More

Well where do I start. Our experience last night mirrors the same of many of the comments here. We were a party of 9 celebrating a birthday party and waited about 1.5 hours to be seated.During this wait period see saw parties exceeding our numbers being seated. When we inquired, the host was extremely rude and belligerent to us. Come... More

I recently purchased a Groupon for this restaurant only to find out that the location closest to me (Robinson Twp) would NOT accept it....I find it deceiving on both the restaurant and Groupon for selling these without disclosing this fact on the email page and ordering page....will never frequent Ichiban again for this deception.

Had an opportunity to try this restaurant out a few days ago. Not a big fan of Japanese cuisine but felt like trying something new so we gave it a try for lunch. We went to the "from the kitchen side" (my terminology, not theirs) and not the "chef at the table" side since it was only lunch and didn't... More

We used to only go there for the teppanyaki, which is good, but letely I have noticed that I can get some really good sashimi and rolls for a good price as well for take out. $20 for a nice large order of good quality sashimi seem like a pretty good deal to me. Certainly enough to fill me up.

My sister took me out to lunch one day with my nephew to this restaurant. It was great as the chef prepared our food right in front of us with great skill. The food tasted awesome. I hope I can go back there really soon.
