I was introduced to Ichiban over 20 years ago, when there wasn't that many Japanese restaurants in the area. The food over the years is consistently good and the people who work there have always been friendly. It was here that one of the servers recommended Chirashi and I have been loving it ever since. In all my years of... More

Saw this on trip advisor with great reviews. Went there just in time to get the lunch specials. We had a wonderful dish with lots of sashimi which was delicious. A few issues however, the service was extremely slow. The atmosphere was stale and no fun and when 3pm came around they have happy hour specials, but because we got... More

My fiancee and I visited here recently. My fiancee is a lover of Asian cuisine, and he had been to the restaurant during lunch time while working. He said the Ramen he had at lunch was really good. We went for dinner, fully planning to have Ramen, but guess what? No Ramen on the dinner menu. Strange.... He ordered a... More

Probably 1 of the best places for sushi that I have been to. The food was great and the Chef was very personable and made good suggestions on what to eat as well as he spoke of weekend specials that he would offer if you made a call in prior to coming for dinner. The special menu that changes had... More

THE WORST SERVICE CONSISTENTLY HANDS DOWN!!! I wish I knew what all the hype was about this place. The sushi is just ok and the other items there are nothing to write home about. The service is AWFUL and nothing short of it. They are rude and slow with the food but mostly rude. This place will do if you... More

Visited the place on a business trip to Tampa and stopped in to have some sushi, the place is very nice inside, well decorated and the food was very fresh. Loved their Ichiban Special, I tried it mixed so was able to taste different rolls. Will be back for a dinner experience.
