Stopped by for lunch today and had the Ichiban special. This is a rather tasty dish with chicken, steak, fried rice and vegetables. A side salad is also served with the entree. Service was great and I don't think you can beat the value of...More

We go so often, now, that we don't have to tell anyone our order! Food is always fresh and good! Favorites are ichiban Special and hibachi chicken. Salads are fresh and ginger dressing is made right there.Try their hot sauce!

This place is not fancy. It's in a strip mall. But it's the best hibachi I've ever had. The food is delicious. Be careful about their hours though, they tend to change. And if you call they'll say they're open, and then you get there...More

I love eating here. The food is always excellent. Nothing fancy in regard to decor but if you aren't looking for a hibachi show it isn't a big deal.No the friendliest servers but its not a deal breaker. I would probably order take out over...More

Yum! I can't say enough about the food here. There isn't an overwhelming menu to choose from (which is great) so this means what they do, they do well! Love the chicken dish!
