We celebrated our twin daughters' 25th birthday with a delicious three course hibachi dinner cooked in front of us. The chef was very entertaining and skilled. Fresh seafood and ample portions. We had a reservation and they had our table ready.

Took my nephew here for his birthday, he loved it. He got a hat, at fruit boat, and hit the oriental Gong. also a free spin for future visit gift certificate. Also a $30 option is an ice cream cake. was good and enough for the entire table. Good show, food was good and reasonably priced.

I've been coming here for sushi for years but I have also done the hibachi experience. Both always meet my expectations. Sushi is the dining area is great....always very quick to get the food out which is nice. Ichiban has always been my favorite sushi spot.

This is a great place to go for lunch, suggest going with a group of people for best benefit. They pretty much double their prices for dinner. You must try their hibachi selections. They all great, and steak is my favorite. The service here is very good. I must try!

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've visited in a long time. Food (steak teriyaki in my case) was excellent and fresh, price was reasonable. The service was prompt, and the house margarita was as it was supposed to be. My wife worked for a Japanese bank in NYC for 11 years and knows good Japanese food, and she along... More
