Flavorful, but overly rich, and without the flare.

Picture this: It's past the dinner hour, you've been out all day with your partner (or Partner), there's been confusion, stress, scheduling mishaps, and - above all - a photo shoot (guaranteed to cause strife and strain on the best of days). All of that is behind you, and you're finally in the car... read more

Ok so I have been to quite a few Asian buffets and this is one I will not be going to ever again. There is no greeting when you enter, just follow me said very rudely. The food was just ok especially considering it is $14 per person plus drinks. Crab legs are cold, not hot. And last but not... More

Ichiban makes me look forward to the 12 hour drive it takes to get there. I stop every time I drive from the Outer Banks to Fort Myers.

A very good Japanese buffet. Very good diversity in the foods and mix between Asian and American foods. A big sushi bar with 30-40+ different types laid out. Squid, Tuna, eel, vegy, some spicy sushi (but not enough for me) and a bunch of others. My friend is from Japan and she was quite impressed with the place and the... More

The Ichiban Chinese Buffet in Brandon, Florida is well worth regular visits. The sushi and sashimi bar is the largest I've seen outside Las Vegas~!! The Chinese selection is excellent and the crab pan was never empty - they kept them coming. Every time we go to Brandon we make it a point to avoid Chinese food for a week... More

his place USED to be well worth the visit, visited last night and must say that it is the last time I am going there. The attitude of the staff was rude as if it were a bother to them that you came to dine at their buffet. The food was was at best, most of it looked as though... More
