My boyfriend and I have been to many many Japanese Steakhouses. This is our top 3. By far the BEST yum yum! The cooks are always nice, and waitresses are friendly.

I have definitely had much better Japanese food. Our grandchildren love the chefs that cook on the grills in front of guests so it can be fun. I am not a fan of the decor and I think they could use a little help on housecleaning. I will no doubt eat there again but it is not my first choice.

I have to first admit that I have never been to another Japanese steakhouse. That being said, this was the most fun I have ever had at a restaurant. Your meal is cooked at your table and the chef is very good at entertaining his guests. The meal was extraordinary and the service was great. Others have complained about the... More

If you have ever been to a Japanese steak house, you will understand the 'Cook at your table' fun that you can have. Ichiban does not disappoint. The food was delicious, and the cooks were very entertaining and interactive with our group.

There are no surprises or disappointments with this restaurant. Everything is pretty typical of other Japanese steakhouses where you are entertained while the chef prepares the meal. The food is very good and the seating is either around the food prep table or you can choose to order from the kitchen and seat at a private table.

My hubby and I went to Ichiban last year for New Year's Eve and really enjoyed it. It was our first time there and we were impressed with the number of people eating and waiting to be seated. We did feel it was a little expensive for the amount of food you get but we left thinking we will definitely... More

Great Sushi, not the best, but good for Zanesville. A little expensive. The dinning area could be cleaned better which prevented me from giving them 4 stars. Mark Pi's China Gate is almost next door which is the best Chinese restaurant in Zanesville go there instead if you are not looking for sushi.

Had a great time with some mates, staff were friendly, chef entertainment was a good laugh and made for a fun atmosphere for the evening. It was a full house, so lots going on around us. Food was pretty good with large portions served (make sure you are hungry!!), would visit again. Only thing I would recommend is something done... More

The food is good. The talent is excellent. The floors are dirty. Any attempt to clean migh raise the status from a JOINT to filling the parking lot. BUY A GOOD VACUUM FOLKS! And use it!
