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

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...
