Attractive hibachi style restaurant with very friendly service and some weeknight specials. Our kids, ages 3 and 7, were fascinated and part of a mainly adult group. Call ahead for reservations on weekends. Sushi also available.

Came here on a Friday evening. Not a wait at all for the dine-in area. We were in a crunch for time so the dine-in option without the hibachi show was a great option. Our waitress was super friendly and quick. When we asked for some extra white sauce it was no problem and came right out. Food was delicious... More

My wife and I have always loved eating here, but the last time we went the waitress was very rude. In fact, she's never been that nice to us. This past time, however, we ordered and when we were finished, she slammed our menus and then walked away talking under her tongue about us. Then, I watched the sushi chef... More

We celebrated a family member birthday at this restaurant and had a great time. The food was great (I had the salmon and it was wonderful) and the "entertainment" fun. He got everyone involved and highlighted the birthday girl, even though she was shy. There is lots of food and it is far more reasonably priced than other similar restaurants... More

We enjoyed lunch at Ichiban 's this week. The service was a little slow, however, the food was excellent. Our cook was good and did his job well. A great value for lunch.

Went for late lunch and it was almost empty. Service was efficient and polite. We had sashimi and California roll as well as spicy tuna roll. Very good.

The food is very good and the chef's work hard to entertain as well as cook a good meal. It's also good for family's or groups because of the seating. It isn't, however, a good place for small children, again because of the seating. Have never eaten anything there that was anything except very, very good. Highly recommend it.

A great menu and good value. We ate at sushi bar and enjoyed shrimp, chicken, and steak, all for less than $10. The shrimp and chicken were wonderful, as well as the outstanding rice and veggies. The steak taste great, but was a little tough. We will return as the food and service was really good. Telephone 540-725-1288.

Helping a family member move - went here for "we're done for now" celebration dinner, and loved it. Friendly staff, food very tasty with the normal show of a hibachi-style restaurant. Our daughter had a sushi roll she loved. We'll be back.

Thank Jeff S
