Ichiban Steak House & Asian Fusion
Reserve a table for 5 for hibachi of course. Late for 15 minutes. Restaurant disagreed to provide for us hibachi shef saying they stopped with shows at 9 (the time we got a table) and we came at 9.15. It’s okay. We late. But they had empty restaurant and could easily serve us. Instead we got just a regular booth. The food was as always pretty good but near to 10pm the started to lift the chairs next to us and at the bar and walk near our food with brooms and cleaners. So if you want to enjoy don’t come an hour before they closing. They are tired and don’t care.
We made a reservation for Hibachi Sunday night at 5:30 and we were not sat until 6:00. The cook did not come out until 6:30. Service was slow. The food was decent but the vegetables were not cooked thoroughly. We will not be coming back.
They were very accommodating, prompt, and the chef was outstanding. Would go back again for sure!
Really enjoyed our dinner. It was sond 14th bday celebration. He had a blast.
We waited for a very very long time for customers that were already served to get up. A party there was way too loud and drunk. We were crammed up at a table that was not meant for that many people. Overall the food was good and the servers tried their best.
Great food and service!!
First visit ever...good food friendly people. Would definitely visit again!
Sadly, despite Ted's outstanding service, the non-sushi food was not fresh and did not taste good. While the sushi items ordered were fresh and delicious, the hibatchi and kitchen food ordered looked and tasted days old. Particularly bad was the onion soup which smelled and tasted like dirty socks. The salads were wilted and brown and the hibatchi veggies were just as bad when the poor chef had to put them on the cook top. For these prices, the produce should be fresh and the food should be tasty.
I have eaten here many times, and always choose it over the bigger name "chains" because of the food and the price. They have made changes to how they prepare and serve the food that I didn't care for......instead of zucchini and onions, they have an array of veggies like broccoli, peppers, mushrooms mixed. This is fine, but it didn't taste the same. Nor did the shrimp......not sure if the seasonings are different. The only things I DID NOT like, were NO mushrooms with the filet mignon, and the soy salad dressing was awful. Used to be so good! Sometimes you don't need to change what isn't broken. Just my two cents.
The food was not very good. They didn’t even put egg in the fried rice. Chicken was over cooked. Won’t be back
We love coming here with our Birthday Dinner group of friends.
A lot of food! Filet mignonette was cooked perfect. The shrimp was over cooked. They are cooking for 8 or 10 so just remind chef to cook shrimp lightly. Otherwise delicious
Great experience with the kids. Good food and a decent price.
It won’t be my last time, as many times as i passed this place i had no idea it was so dope (so good)!!! Keep it up!
It was nice and quiet. Great staff, me and my girlfriend was always help we really enjoyed ourselves
Made a reservation for 6:30 pm. Arrived on time. Finally left at 8:45 pm. Food ok, service ok. Would not recommend.
Have eaten here 3 times with large groups of friends and every time has been fantastic. The service, food, and value are always great. I highly recommend Ichiban for a fun and delicious meal with friends and family!
Very accommodating when we asked if they would allow us to bring a cake and bring it out for us.
The food was fantastic and our waiter is very energetic and enthusiastic! Unfortunately, there was a birthday party and the crowd is too loud for a conservative type group of other people who wants to enjoy fine dining and good conversation as the noise level of the party is taking over the place.
Overall, it was a good experience and superb food!
Our service was excellent.
Crowded table very little room for our plates ..we were seated with a family of 7 people their children were loud obnoxious the food was so so ... chicken tough shrimp undercooked vegetables mostly all onions and a lot of rice ... soup blah... salad had wilted lettuce .. slow service !
It was not a good experience
Promptly seated. (We sat In a regular booth vs the hibachi grill tables) Really really awesome decor. Extensive menu options. Bar drinks were great. Sever was newer but did an awesome job. (Thanks Robyn!) It was a bit loud but the environment was a lot of fun. The food was fantastic and very well portioned. Will def go back!
Where to start!!!!! Omg, service was amazing and food was very good. NEVER had a more fun experience at any restaurant! Chef “brown rice” 😬 was the best!!! We never expected to have such a wonderful time at dinner. We’ll be back.
The service is good, fun to watch a small show while eating, But the floor is very slippery.
My husband & I LOVE Ichiban! Our favorite sushi in Charleston. The service is great too. We are yet to try the hibachi at the cooktop tables but will soon! It always sounds like everyone is having a blast in there & the chefs put on a great show.
Had my sisters bachelorette dinner there. The cook was hysterical and played along with the theme (ha!). Food was yummy. The server didn’t have much of a personality and wasn’t very knowledgeable about the drink menu. All in all we had a great time! Also accommodating one of our girls with celiac.
Had a great time, cook was entertaining and food was excellent!
The restaurant had water leakage issues due to a storm, so they could not honor my reservation. The restaurant was hot and stuffy, presumably from the problems with the roof. They sat us at a regular table but I ordered the same menu for same price but got less food.. No discount was offered. It also was not as hot as it should have been, as well as my date's food coming a good 5+ minutes after mine when she just ordered sushi. We got a new waitress who was actually pretty good for only having been there a few days but overall the dining experience was disappointing because of the atmosphere and food issues.
Took almost 2 hours after our reservation time to be seated and then another hour to start making our food. But we also had a big group and it was a Friday night. The show was pretty fun but you shouldn’t bring your kids since the jokes are for adults. Had a great 21st birthday here!
Family dinner celebrating a birthday. James and the Chef took very good care of us and the floor show was fantastic!
Had placed an advance table request and once we arrived were told it was booked.
Service was slow. Food was ok. Not recommended for parties of more than 2.
Show was better than most of the local japanese places , but tended to be on the vulgar side. Service was good ,food not to bad.
We had a great time. Chef Orlando - AKA Chef Brown Rice - was fantastic. It was the first time my senior aged parents had been to a Japenese style dinner. Orlando made it a wonderful experience for them. The food was great too! Thank you!
The experience was nice.
Great food and plenty for take home. Our server was Aly and she was fabulous. My mother who is 95 was with us and everyone went out of their way to help her. We love dining here!
This was possibly the worst restaurant in charleston thst I have been to since I moved here almost 5 years ago. It was dingy and dirty, no ambience at all. The hibachi was edible, that's about the best I can say and the sushi was just awful. I would never eat here again and I would not recommend it to anyone
Love this place hands down
Food and service was fine, although the waitress said they were out of steak for my bento box, but they did have beef. Huh? VERY noisy in the back room. Huge portions
What an amazing and awesome experience we had for dinner! Great food, great entertainment, great fun by all!
