Strange visit. Got there about 7. After seated, 10 minute wait for a waiter. "Oh, were you waiting long, I'm sorry!" Nice guy who was cleaning tables took my order. Food came quickly. Had a delicious meal-salad with ginger dressing and maki combination and a...More

I eat here often because the staff is friendly and the food wonderful. Try the beauty and the beast roll with tuna salmon and eel. Baby octopus and seaweed salad are tasty appetizers. There's a wonderful Korean menu too. For that I love spicy pork...More

The sashimi and Sushi rolls are all nicely crafted and generously portioned. Two rolls per person should be plenty. The specialty rolls are creative and flavorful without being gimmicky. The environment is a little cliche and dated but it works ok. The prices are reasonable....More

The food at Ichiban is consistently excellent as well as the service. We frequent this place on a regular basis. We always have the Mackerel which is broiled and Crispy and served with 8 small Korean style plates which we often share. It is not...More

Have been here a few times for hibatchi and not only had fun but the food was very good. I had vegetables, fried rice and my husband liked his lobster and filet very much. The chefs are fun and put on a great show.
