This is one of my husbands favorite places to eat in Williamsport, PA. Great sushi! We go there and are never disappointed.

My husband and I have dined here many times. The Japanese cuisine is always excellent and the service is great. The plum wine is our favorite adult beverage here. I prefer the Ichiban over its competition, Hana. I recommend it to anyone visiting Williamsport or anyone who has never tried it. The hibachi is a must!

Ichiban is truly a gem which we frequent a lot. We are so lucky to have such a great sushi/sashimi experience in a town of this size. My wife and I travel extensively and have sushi everywhere we can. No matter where we go, Ichiban is our standard and I have to say it measures up extremely well. Elvis is... More

This place is great! conveniently located right along the main strip in town. They have monthly specials and everything is always so fresh, staff is friendly and atmosphere is always welcoming. I stopped here this week hoping to grab a roll and I see they are closed for renovations. I cannot wait to check out the remodeling in a few... More

Found this place on Trip Advisory while on a our weekend getaway. You will not be disappointed if you like Habachi! Such a nice welcome surprise in the middle of no where.

Delicious, clean, and great service in an otherwise fast food wasteland! My boyfriend enjoyed the chicken and shrimp hibachi and right now I'm wishing I had some leftovers of my vegetable roll and cucumber roll!

I've only ever had their habachi, which is always good. I've had better habachi in New York, but for Williamsport, I guess it's pretty good. Once the Japanese little league team came in to celebrate their win at the Little League World Series while I was there. It was cute. Also, like all habachi, pretty pricey.

Loved the people, the good food and the attentive service but this restaurant needs a little attention to detail and cleaning. The paper screens in the windows are splattered with grease and other food stuffs. Off putting to look at, we admit. There were dusty corners and dingy looking carpets. We enjoyed our meal but the ambience could be a... More

I love hibachi grills and this restaurant is no exception! The cooks are always very friendly and talented and the food is great too! Definitely a fun dinner and "show" for the family.
