Please be assured that we are doing our part to provide a comfortable, relaxing and safe environment in the dining rooms as we observe the highest CDC standards. Please review our new safety guidelines below:

  • All staff and patrons will be required to wear masks at all times indoors unless seated at their table
  • Hibachi tables are limited to one party per table, min of 4 and max of 12.  (Reservations are highly recommended.)  Japanese lunch is currently unavailable until further notice.
  • Chinese parties will have a max of 6 people on a “first come, first serve” basis.
  • Bar seating will be closed until further notice.
  • Please make note of our revised dining room hours below.

The 50% capacity constraint creates new challenges for us, but we hope to use it to our advantage by offering you double the attention! We look forward to seeing you back in our dining rooms!
For those of you not quite ready for in-restaurant dining, it is our pleasure to continue to offer efficient, friendly take out service by calling us at 616-942-5120 or at home delivery using Doordash or Ubereats.

Shanghai Ichiban is one of West Michigan’s favorite dining establishments and has been serving the area since 1987. Formerly known as Shanghai Garden, the Yang family relocated the restaurant to its current location at the corner of Broadmoor (M-37) and 29th Street where head chef, James Yang and his brothers, Steve and Eric continue their success of 30+ years of restaurant experience.

With two restaurants under one roof, Shanghai Ichiban offers two unique dining experiences. Our Japanese Steakhouse offers all of the flare and excitement with a meal prepared right before your eyes by a skilled hibachi chef. Or enjoy an intimate, relaxing experience in our Chinese dining room where you can customize a delectable meal from an expansive menu that includes familiar dishes as well as specialty dishes created by our head chef. We also have a sushi bar that serves fresh fish daily and can also be ordered on either the Japanese or Chinese side.

Being a family-owned establishment, our success depends on the quality of its customers. We thank all of you for your support over the past three decades and look forward to continue serving the greater West Michigan area for years to come!
