There's quite a bar scene here, so it you like to have a drink while watching sports, get there early. The Japanese food is great (I've gone gaga for their tempura dishes). If you like Pad Thai, best to go elsewhere in town (the Siam Orchid). The drinks are honest, the ambiance is lovely, and there's a large parking lot. The facility is big enough for a crowd, with spaces for a cozy two-some. Ichiban came about after renovating an older restaurant in town, and they did a beautiful job. But the food alone is worth the trip.

Based on actual experience, this is the best sushi in the area. The quality is good and the maki rolls are well sized with generous amounts of fish. The specialty rolls are a bit pricy, but ones like the Super Sakura are well worth the try. Pleasant service rounds out the trip.

Fantastic sushi made in front of us. Fast service, reasonable pricing. Would go back there again to eat. Serving size was perfect.

So let me disclose this is the last place on the list of options we would have selected - and the birthday boy did. O Well.

Our reasoning is that we find "hibachi" style Japanese restaurants lacking in a few ways: hard to have conversation with anyone other than those seated to your left and right; noisy, limited menu options. So we knew what to expect.

Here are my thoughts otherwise.
Our party of 5 seated at a table where 4 others were. No biggie, except as soon as we sat down the waitress took our drink orders. Then our food orders. And the chef arrived BEFORE either of the appetizers were brought to the table. A bit rushed, I'd say.

The scollops we way overcooked and hence rubbery.

When one of our party ordered dessert - deep fried ice cream - for everyone at the table the waitress only brought out one piece with a candle so we could sing happy bday. It took quite a while for her to return and that's when another one was ordered so the folks in our party could have a taste. By now the other party had left.

Slow response on being able to place an order for and then for getting second round of drinks for those who ordered them.

Staff was nice enough but We won't be returning.

We enjoyed dinner here with the family, all sitting around the hibachi grill. Our chef was friendly, entertaining everyone, including the children. The shrimp, scallops, and sliced beef were cooked well and very fresh. We also had fried rice, noodles, and veggies prepared fresh on the grill.
I would definitely have dinner here again!
