20% off regular sushi rolls for dinner (every night?) was a nice surprise! No free miso ($3??) must be where they make up the difference though.

Friendly, decently run, Americanized "Japanese" joint with fairly-priced, well constructed "fusion sushi." Aga-dashi dofu was below par but rest of food was good. Noodles etc. standard but kinda hard to butcher those. Reasonable option in a college town food desert.

We had not been to a Japanese restaurant in years. Enjoyed the experience all the way from the soup and salad, to the chef show in cooking our food. Very tasty😃

These days sushi can be found in supermarkets, filling stations and on intercontinentale flights with obvious impact on the quality and freshness. Ichiban delivers good food. I had a miso soup, seaweed salade and a sushi-sashimi combo. With green tea. All good and tasty. I have had better, so no 5 star, but more often I had worse. I hate... More

The food at Ichiban has never disappointed in the dozen or so times I've had the pleasure of eating there. While the entrees are a bit pricey, it doesn't seem to have had any effect on the diners, especially on weekend evenings. To avoid the evening crowds, my family usually dine at ichiban during the lunchtime hours. The crowds are... More

We've been here several times, and we always received good service and quality food! Lunch specials are the most affordable option, and we typically leave with leftovers.

Yummy as always! We come about once a month, and always can count on a good meal. Today we decided to have sushi only rather than wait for hibachi, but still good! Service quick as well.

It's show time with cooking down right in front of you and a joint customer table. The chefs are also entertaining.

Had hibachi dinner with my son home from college and it was a great experience. We both had chicken and shrimp, and unlike a previous review we did NOT get sick. In fact, we were completely satisfied and enjoyed our time together. highly recommend for family or business dinner.
