Watching chefs prepare your dinner ensures that they are using fresh ingredients instead of arranging pictures cut from the menu atop a bed of rice. See food with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for one appetizer, two soups, and two Chinese entrees (up to a $42 value)
- $36 for two hibachi meals (up to a $75 value)
Pairs can peruse the Chinese menu and start with won ton or egg flower soup (up to a $5.50 value each) and an appetizer (up to a $7.50 value each) such as potstickers before enjoying entrees (up to a $14.50 value each) including Mongolian beef and princess chicken in spicy plum sauce.
Diners who choose the hibachi meal begin with a selection of starter courses while watching the chef prepare their steak, fish, lobster, or scallops. Combo meals are also available.
While having a split personality is not the healthiest thing for a person, it works well for a restaurant, as evidenced by Shanghai Ichiban, where a lively Japanese steakhouse and intimate/quiet/elegant Chinese dining room happily coexist under one roof. Diners settle around hibachi tables on the restaurant’s Japanese side, where paintings of crashing waves mimic the cacophonous sounds of knives and spatulas as chefs go to work. Around the hibachi grill, chefs flaunt their showmanship and precise cooking skills by juggling their cooking utensils and maneuvering morsels of filet mignon, scallops, or chicken atop the wide, flat grill. In the quieter Chinese dining room, servers present entrees of sesame chicken or spicy chung king pork on white tablecloths. While Chinese cuisine is dominant on this side, the chefs practice their pan-Asian flair as well, serving up Korean dishes, Vietnamese pho, and cool morsels of fresh sushi.
