We celebrated our 50th anniversary dinner with children and grandchildren in the Ichibiri Tappan grill restaurant. We always enjoy tappan grill food and the food preparation show but this dinner was a bit of disappointing. It was very noisy and the quality of the food...More

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....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...More

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.

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...More

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.
