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

My wife and I were both very hungry and spotted this place on September 2nd. I wish we had kept looking. Our lunch started out okay and went down hill from there. We were escorted to our table and asked what we wanted to drink. The gentleman who took the order mumbled what we had ordered and left. We went... More

This place has a great selection of sushi compared to most Chinese buffet. Ichiban also has a great selection on the buffet variety. However, I did not find the taste of the food to be that great. I read the awesome review by other people and decided to give it a shot but was disappointed.

Every kind under the sun and all delicious! Lots of good variety on the clean food bar. Table service for refills and clearing of plates was very slow. But the food was good!

This place in Brandon just west of Tampa is not really a japanese buffet but a Chinese buffet that serves sushi. So do not come here expecting udon noodles or any tempura or yakitori or katsu. But it is a pretty good chinese buffet. I came here for lunch and for about 9 bucks and change you will get more... More

My husband and I went here for dinner, as we have many times and have had the same issue every time..unsupervised children in the food area...so I finally spoke up and made a complaint to the man at the desk on my way out about all the children running around and into people, reaching over the hot steamers, grabbing food...

Went out with our teenagers for a late lunch. Friendly staff... Nice buffet and lots of sushi. For four people with soft drinks it was about 60.00. Nice experience.

Ichiban is a typical Chinese buffet with all of the usual suspects on the buffet. However, it does have one advantage to most other Chinese buffets in the area. It has an expanded sushi selection. Now, don't get me wrong, this isn't the greatest sushi that you will ever experience. However, for the relatively low price of the meal, the... More

Took my wife & friends to Ichiban for lunch yesterday. She order some special fried rice from the chef working the Mongolian grill. She ordered beef fried rice and got chicken but fortunately found a used toothpick in the food before she actually tried to eat it. The chef is surly but I now consider him dangerous. That toothpick could... More

The sushi was excellent, many choices, very tasty. The typical buffet, string beans, fried rice etc was not very good. The ribs and the shrimp wrapped bacon were fine, but everything else was blah. They had a hibachi grill which I did not try. The plates being served seemed small and not special. They also had a sign suggesting that... More
