You have a choice of sitting in one section with family/friends or at the hibachi grill. Food quality great and portion size beyond adequate. Friendly service. Accomodating

Still hurts that the staff is the problem and management doesn't care. I just cant get over that i tried this place again after they treat you like you dont matter. Which is obvious.... YOU DONT!

I live in this town and this is/was my go to spot for friends and family. We walked out due to a snotty nose servers comment. And to top it off a half hearted sorry from a so called manager that didnt show her face till we were walking out. All birthdays, anniversaries and most events that me and my... More

20% off regular sushi rolls for dinner (every night?) was a nice surprise! No free miso ($3??) must be where they make up the difference though.

Friendly, decently run, Americanized "Japanese" joint with fairly-priced, well constructed "fusion sushi." Aga-dashi dofu was below par but rest of food was good. Noodles etc. standard but kinda hard to butcher those. Reasonable option in a college town food desert.

We had not been to a Japanese restaurant in years. Enjoyed the experience all the way from the soup and salad, to the chef show in cooking our food. Very tasty😃

These days sushi can be found in supermarkets, filling stations and on intercontinentale flights with obvious impact on the quality and freshness. Ichiban delivers good food. I had a miso soup, seaweed salade and a sushi-sashimi combo. With green tea. All good and tasty. I have had better, so no 5 star, but more often I had worse. I hate... More

The food at Ichiban has never disappointed in the dozen or so times I've had the pleasure of eating there. While the entrees are a bit pricey, it doesn't seem to have had any effect on the diners, especially on weekend evenings. To avoid the evening crowds, my family usually dine at ichiban during the lunchtime hours. The crowds are... More

We've been here several times, and we always received good service and quality food! Lunch specials are the most affordable option, and we typically leave with leftovers.
