My very first visit to Ichiban and it will definitely not be my last. The first impression is a lasting impression. O my, the vast variety of very appetizing display of food and the price is compatible to other places. You have choices of to be seated by a hostess, buffet style, or self-service take-out. As you enter you are asked pleasantly what type of service you like. I give this spot a "five star."

The food was tasty and the prices are reasonable but the star of the show, the hibachi grill, is inconsistent. We looked forward to the grill experience and chose this restaurant because it offered the opportunity to have fresh made food in addition to the buffet. However, when we finally received our plates, the food was so burned that we could not eat it. Moreover, there was no time to get new plates because we were on our lunch break. Thank goodness for the buffet or we would have been forced to go back to work starving.

I really enjoyed the diversity in the food. But the decor leave something to be desired. Please put out more Jell-O and butter pecan ice cream.

Not on my top 10 Chinese buffet list. It was good enough to get satisfied for the price but fail short to other Chinese buffets in qaulity, quantity and taste! Sushi bar gets an A+ & Hibachi Grill area gets a B Every thing else including dining room area gets a C. What bothered me the most was the lack of used plate collections & drink refills.

Good variety and good food. If you are allergic to shellfish this probably isn't the place for you though, especially during peak times. There are a lot of shrimp dishes that often get sloshed into the surrounding dishes so it can be very hard to find something without shrimp.

Good food, good selection at good price. The Sushi and Hibachi bars have excellent choices with the freshest items. Dessert and Fruit bars keep items at the correct temperatures so that everything is delicious.

Wonderful variety of food items on buffet. Even the items you have prepared for your you are fresh. I enjoy each visit and sometimes I take guest.

It's a buffet...all the regulars with a few odd additions...good selection of sushi. Seating is different but no complaints. Some of the booths are very worn and could use some reupholster. I'm not one to complain about crowds at a buffet as long as the food keeps replenishing...always fresher! I will be a Sunday returnee.

Always a good experience here! Been going for year and the food is always hot and delicious. There is never a wait during the day and hardly one at night. The hibachi is also very well done with a fast cook that'll cook it right down the line as you're standing there.

Dinner food is good, but DON'T go there for lunch. The lunch buffet was AWFUL. Food selection is poor and desert and salad selection is poor on lunch & dinner buffet. Definitely dont bring a date their.

Good, hot fresh food, full of variety! Nice environment, good service, clean space and reasonable prices. We no longer live in Durham and still manage to frequent this restaurant. This is one of our most favorite lunch spots.

Nice place to have hibachi buffet!!! Ambience is nice and welcoming. Buffets on weekday and weekends are good. On weekends they have some more special items in the buffet. Hibachi grill is also good and you can choose veggies and meat or seafood to cutomize your fried rice or noodles. My daughter likes their sushi rolls. Plenty of parking... Before I will forget, I noticed the table waiters bringing and lighting fancy candles for one of guest's birthdays!!! Awesome and I will bring family and friends AGAIN. Thanks!!!

Great experience and good food. Very busy on Sundays like others noted. Not all food items are cooked ideally - I.e. the crab legs are fried and rather tasteless. The sushi is very good though. I would return.

I think this place is closed. Went by at around 6:00pm on a Saturday and no one was there. Also the phone number was disconnected.
