I've ate at countless Chinese buffets over the years, and I must admit Ichiban might be the most stylish and upscale I have ever seen. Everything about the atmosphere seems so unlike a buffet and more like a trendy high class establishment. They even have buttons at the table to call over your server. I must say though even though... More

Everything was great! The only thing I don't like is when you go to get crab legs they LITERALLY put maybe 6 legs on a plate and give it to you. I hate that.

It was a pleasure having you over, Jasmine. We're always happy to serve you additional crab legs if you come back for more. - Kam N., Owner More

I don't eat Chinese much, however, this is the place if you do. My other half was very impressed, and she's is picky. The wait however, is crazy. Not the place if you are in a hurry.

This is really your typical Chinese buffet place to eat. Rice, noodles, chicken, shrimp, sushi, etc. lots of choices. Not to bad of a price.

Recently had the opportunity to visit this location and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. ALL of the food was very good with a wide selection to choose from. Also enjoyed their deserts as well. If you're in Flowood.. it's a great place for lunch.

My mother and I were recently shopping in Jackson and we decided to have lunch at Ichiban. We have eaten here before but it has been over 2 years since I ate at Ichiban.
