We've dined at Ichibiris many times over the years, and as far as the food, it's one of the better teppan style restaurants in the Orange County area. The presentation is average as far as the entertainment value, but will be impressive to young diners. The place is usually crowded, and service is very slow. Decor is a bit dated... More

I've reviewed this place before many years ago. I did not like the cleanliness of the dining room. I returned because my best friend had her birthday party there. Still not impressed. The fried rice and vegetables are superb. My chicken with lemon butter was all lemon and no butter. It was also overcooked. The sushi chef Isac was very... More

Good sushi, good Teppanyaki grill, good tempura, yum. If you never have taken the kids to Japanese grill, now is the time. Lots of entertainment as the chefs cook just for your group. Have you ever flipped a fried shrimp in your chef's hat? Good service. Wine, beer and sake available. Yummy green tea ice cream too.

I'm a regular here and this place is awesome!!! Sometimes I dine at the sushi bar and other times, at the Teppanyaki grills. Ichibiri has been open for over 30 years so this place is a must-visit restaurant if you're in the area.

If you are looking for exceptional or authentic, this probably is not your first choice. Ichibiri includes standard table service, sushi bar, and teppan grill.

The food was great, the presentation was so fun for kids but the service was poor. Tables need to be wiped down, plates need to be removed. Still a great night out with family!

Try their Combination Dinners. My favorite is the New York Combination and my wife's the Sushi & Sashimi Combination Dinner. The restaurant's atmosphere is not the Ritz, but the food quality and quantity is the "best deal" in Orange County! With the combination dinners, you get a wonderful salad and tofu soup!

Good sushi, tapan grill and friendly people. Of the three locations this is my favorite, especially after a day at the beach.

I love the fried rice and salad dressing here. It can be a little pricey for dinner, but the early bird pricing takes care of it. Come hungry because servings are huge (I just take my leftovers). Fun place to eat with friends.

The meal was awesome and teh show put on by the chef was fun. We shared a table with a family with young kids who were jsut mesmerized by the teppan cooking. Senior pricing makes the meal $10 or if your are not a senior the early bird special also brings the price down significiantly. There are frequent coupon offers... More
