Great food at college prices

Hole in the wall, but don't let that deter you. The sushi is delicious! We got a large amount of food for a low price and the quality was great.

Absolutely one of the best places to eat in Tuscaloosa. Bento boxes are delicious. Great service, they serve you with a smile.

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).

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.
