I had read about Ichiban on Trip Advisor and booked a hibachi table for our family (adult children and grandchildren). As soon as we were seated, I knew it was a mistake. Right next to our table (within 3 feet) was a slop bucket filled...More

Quick service and you can't beat the lunch specials. Three rolls for under 11.00 with soup & salad. They also have available a two roll special.

We always have good food and service here. Sushi is very good and we love doing the hibachi. Never had an issue here and the prices are relatively inexpensive.

Good time for everyone. Choose the hibachi table. Go with a larger group of 6 or more. The chief cooks your food right in front of you. He will do tricks and surprise you with his skills.

Always worth a visit. The hibachi is always fun, and the rolls are as pretty as they are delicious! If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary when you're in Auburn, definitely give Ichiban a try.

Although it can be expensive, Ichiban's food is consistently good, and the grill is always fun & entertaining. Granted some of the chefs are more outgoing than others. Great entertainment for kids who don't like to sit at the table otherwise.

Depending on which part of Syracuse you're coming from, Route 5 is usually the best way. You can get by the Thruway but that includes 8 miles through Weedsport.
