Ichiban Japanese Steak House and Sushi Bar – Minneapolis

Ichiban features the 5000 year old method of Japanese cooking where chefs skillfully prepare the dinner at your table. "Iron cooking" or Teppanyaki is the heart of our cuisine. Our Teppanyaki chefs are wizards of the knife, each with their own style and showmanship. Ichiban also features an all you can eat for one hour sushi bar every night of the week. A full bar is available with beer, wine, liquor and sake. The main floor is handicap accessible, so please request if needed. Happy hour specials are available Monday thru Friday in the bar. Enjoy specials on beer, wine, sake and several appetizers and types of sushi in a quiet atmosphere. We also have Early Bird specials, including a discount on the sushi bar every day of the week and discounts on Teppanyaki meals Sunday through Friday. Early Bird is from 4:30 to 6:00pm.




RESERVATIONS ARE ONLY FOR TEPPANYAKI and are not available for the sushi bar.

"The food was fantastic, and the table chef was great how he interacted with everyone. Our server was not great, taking her time to check on people and forgetting drink orders. The atmosphere was loud, but high energy, and appropriate considering their style. Overall it was very enjoyable."

"As my first time there it was just ok for me... My kids and wife had been there before and raved about it, so we went...... with all the hype, it was a disappointment unfortunately ..... Our bill was over 250$ with tip for 3 adults and 1 kiddo...YIKES... If it was stellar food and show then it would have been worth the money... We like to try new restaurants and wont let price stand in the way... the cook was supposedly the "Head Chef", when he started tossing and throwing things after several failed attempts, we all started backing up.. We didn't know if he was going to fail and hit us with something... Quite comical, and no we don't expect perfect, but for the head chef, it seemed like that couldn't be further from the truth....
The chicken liver appetizer that comes with the meals, oh please, get rid of it already, and just charge the up charge.... Not many would opt for the app that is "included.".. Seriously just plain silly to have that on there...Def will be going somewhere else and spending our money...

"This was a celebration dinner for my son's 21st Birthday. The place is very run down and the food very expensive for the quality. All of the added and extra pricing was ridiculous. Overall very disappointing and we will not be back."

"Our family has been coming to Ichiban's for many years to celebrate my son's birthday. It's his favorite place and our entire family enjoys it. This visit was on a very cold Sunday after the Vikings lost their bid for the playoffs so the restaurant was rather empty. As a result it didn't have the normal energetic vibe. We started out our meal with a couple of sushi rolls (our first sushi purchase at Ichiban) and I was very pleased with them. Our waitress was attentive and our chef was entertaining and competent. He said he'd been chef there for 5 1/2 years and his experience showed. Everything tasted great. We only come once per year because our bill was well over $300 (after tip) for our family of four and while we enjoyed it, we can't justify that kind of dining expense very often."

"We enjoyed a Great meal prepared at the table, Great Entertainment by the Table Chef and Fun Atmosphere. Enjoyed the group we were seated with. Would be a nice atmosphere for children 10 or over. This restaurant would provide a nice atmosphere for a group of 8, as this was the table format."

"We were there for a birthday and it was a lot of fun. The staff was attentive and the food was abundant, in fact all of us were unable to finish and had to ask for boxes, and very good. I didn't even mind the chicken liver! It would be best for a group to break up the cost a bit. There were 5 in our group, one being a child, and I paid about $250.00 including tip for all of us."

"MY wife and I have been going to Ichiban's for 15+ years. We came with our 19 year old son & his date to celebrate my wife's birthday. It has been a couple of years and while the food is still tasty the building is tired and the cook was uninspired. The staff at the host stand were cordial but aloof.
Someone needs to shake up the staff and save the interior from it's slow slide into a drab nothingness"
