Visited for our adult son's birthday (3rd or 4th visit for us - many more for him). Three adults, one child. You can either choose a regular table for dinner, or choose a Hibachi chef to make your dinner and add some entertainment while you're at it (Sorry chef - I was pretty bad at trying to catch the shrimp...

The sushi was absolutely delicious! Very well prepared with fresh ingredients. The prices were reasonable for sushi and there was a huge variety. We did not try the hibachi this time but it looked pretty good. The restaurant is spacious and clean. The service was just ok. We were seated fairly quickly, received water, and our order was taken.

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.

Whenever we are in Auburn this is our go to lunch stop. They have a great Bento Box for $10.00 that includes soup, salad, entrée, white rice, sushi, egg roll and shumai. It is cooked fresh and everything tastes delicious. On one visit they were building a sushi boat that looked amazing! They also have hibachi dining.

I opted for the Sushi Bar since I was traveling alone. I ordered two rolls and some sushi. It was good but not much to write home about. The rolls were the type where it almost doesn't matter what you order it all tastes the same...know what I mean? And the sushi seaweed paper was the stick to your teeth... More
