THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ichiban Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Whether you choose the fun seats, on the tatami-matted floor at traditional Japanese tables, or opt for chairs at Western-style tables, you'll find the full range of expected sushi bar creations here, plus a few unusual items like the Osaka maki (chopped spicy mahi mahi, salmon, masago, and everyone's favorite eel sauce) or, for those who prefer cooked seafood, the American Dream (shrimp tempura, cooked conch, cucumber, lettuce, avocado, and eel sauce). There are also Japanese entrées including a Benihana-like teriyaki beef and shrimp combo, a variety of tempuras in lacy batter, and sukiyaki (beef slices, vegetables and cellophane noodles cooked in savory-sweet mirin and soy broth).
