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.

We had a wonderful lunch with a show at our table grill. Steak was cooked to perfection! And the shrimp and veggies are awesome too!

Not a big fan of Hibachi restaurants but it was my son's birthday and he wanted to go there. We had been a couple of times before and this place typically rates pretty well as far as these types of restaurants go. On this night the air was rolling in through the vent and when they weren't cooking we were... More

I've only eaten here a handful of times but it's been very good every time. The food is fresh and the service really great, very friendly. Interior decor is nice and prices reasonable. Eat here.
