Ate at Ichiban and had awful stomach problems after. I gave it another try about a year later and nothing changed. Definitely need to change their ingredients so they don't make you sick.

Ichiban is a small, family-owned Japanese restaurant in Tuscaloosa. It's in the shopping center next to the bowling alley at 15th Street and Hackberry Lane, so it's not the fanciest restaurant (there's no hibachi grill). But it has excellent food that is so reasonably priced. My son loves the sushi. Our favorite entree is the Teriyaki Chicken. The entire staff... More

Ichiban is extremely inexpensive but offers excellent food. The tempura is wonderful and the sushi is some of the best in town. They have really great fried rice.

I may possibly like their sushi better than chucks. This place is good, fast, and cheap. If you get a chance try the miso soup, crab sticks, and veggie spring rolls. All good!

I went with a group of about 4 or 5 people. Our total was well over $100 in food and sushi and we couldn't even get drink refills. The waitress paid us absolutely no attention and the only way we even got our ticket was we got up and left. We were at the car and almost gone before the... More

Next to Chuck's, the best sushi in town. Unlike Chuck's, Ichiban is open for lunch and reasonably priced.

Let me start by saying my one and only experience with Ichiban was fairly early in its existence a couple of years ago. However the experience left me never wanting to give it a second try.They may have worked out the kinks by now, but I can't recommend it on my experience. The food was extremely bland. The setting was... More

This is the most obscure little restaurant in town, but its also the cheapest and best Japanese food you'll find. This place is tiny and you would never notice it if you didn't know where to look! But inside its immaculately clean, with great service and great food. There is no hibachi grill, which is actually preferable if you love... More
