This is our favourite Japanese restaurant in the area, by far. The sushi is great and they have some unique and tasty rolls using Cajun inspired flavours and crawfish. There is a decent selection of sake and Japanese beers too! The teppan is good and the chefs have some of the usual and expected tricks. Overall, the show is good.... More

Great treat for lunch. The best hibachi in Houma. Pricing isn't bad and the chefs are great entertainment. It's a fairly quick lunch if you're in a hurry. I alway get a roll as well. The honor roll is excellent. I always leave full. The food is enough without the roll.

We dined here on a Saturday evening and had the crab salad and a couple of rolls. The server was attentive and our wait time was relatively short. My rolls were great and the salad good as well. It had been 6 years since my last visit and I thoroughly enjoyed the traditional Japanese dining style of this restaurant. I... More

Saturday night, seated quickly. Ordered the yumyum rolls which were great. Soup was perfect as always. We both ordered the Hibachi Filet and it was awesome. Ichiban is one of our favorite restaurants in Houma, and you always take home enough for the next day.

First trip to Ichiban Houma and the place rocks, great Service, clean & plenty of seating. The menu has plenty of choices for every one, with presentation & flavor we had a very good meal. Not real hard on the $$$ but a family could be shocked by the final bill. I will be back.

While Ichiban has maintained good service, they are suffering the same fate as other restaurants tied to the oil-patch economy. The chirashi deluxe was excellent, but the selections of sashimi are way down to only a few choices. It remains a good choice for Japanese style food, while in Houma

One one trip to ichiban's, the food and presentation was awesome. One the next trip, one week later, The presentation was just average and the awesome taste just was not there. Maybe they changed personnel, I don't know, but it just was not worth a return visit in my opinion.

I've always said I don't like sushi , and after having tried a dozen different sushi places I was sure I would never . Jack at the Houma Ichiban changed my mind in only one visit ! It's not on the menu but he makes a special roll on soy that he decorates with a butterfly made of carrot :-)... More

They have a dinner with seared tuna (10 ozs), soup, ginger salad, egg roll fried rice and fried pineapple. It is consistently good. So much tuna yet so reasonably priced.
