Do NOT go here! Service was bad, food had little to no flavoring and prices are INSANE. For what we ordered it costed us $51 for two plates of food (we had the hibachi chicken) and four drinks. It took almost 15 minutes for someone to take our drink orders, 5 minutes to receive our drinks and then another 15-20... More

I have been to several hibachi type restaurants, this one is the same as the others. Plenty of decent food, good atmosphere. Never had a really great "show" by the chef but that wouldn't keep me from going back. Our daughters love the fun and food. Even a good place for date night.

We visited Ichiban on Friday night and had the worse experience ever. Since I am a frequent visitor to this establishment I expected better then the treatment we received. Our "grill master" was new and unsure of himself and then the unexpected happen, the grill went out. The grill master had no idea what to do and could not get... More

Okay, Lancaster, Pa? Not your go to spot for sushi, but we were deperate. Tucked in a corner of a shopping mall, the Hibachi area was very busy, the sushi side, not so, but that was a plus for us! We did not need the "Benihana show" or the crowded counters with little children. Instead we got a quiet and... More

I always love coming to Ichiban. It is so much fun to watch the chefs cook our meal right in front of us and with a lot of entertaining pizazz. And the food is always delicious whether it is steak or steak and lobster for special occasions. Sitting at the grill and eating at the surrounding counter is not very... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a nice meal of hibachi steak and shrimp. The service was great and the chef was very entertaining. I was stuffed with delicious food!

Food & drinks were excellent, only issue with this restaurant is being seated with children. Went (childless) for husband's birthday. Don't mind children in restaurant, of course, but trying to have a romantic meal with small kids throwing things and making noise is annoying - they should ask when they are seating people if they mind small children being at...

All of the food was well prepared but there was zero entertainment (which is what I have come to expect at a hibachi grill) Fried rice, chicken, shrimp. All good but nothing special Service was efficient and friendly Would come back but probably not in a while

Went here for a birthday dinner. The "show" was a little lackluster, but the food was fantastic. And the service is superb! I know of very few places that my every need is met as much as this restaurant.
