Was a bit worried about the service due to reviews but it was great. Chef was friendly and staff was also. Food was delicious and the price was affordable. I would return.

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.

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.
