“Fresh Sushi dominates the menu at this Essen Lane hibachi restaurant. While catching a seared shrimp from a hibachi chef is delicious and fun, sushi is the main reason to visit Ichiban. Its sushi menu is expansive – raw, cooked and spicy sushi rolls, specialty rolls and sashimi. Tuck and Roll, LSU Roll, He Roll and the       Signature Ichiban Roll are customer favorites.”


“Baton Rouge is spoiled with great restaurants – especially one like Ichiban.
One taste of their artfully prepared sushi and you’ll understand why.”
