Nice Sushi Place

We always come back to this restaurant for the Sushi. Our Favorite is the Aji San. We went back to celebrate my daughters achievements and ordered several rolls. They were all really good. My wife decided to order a fried rice and her food was not very tasty (-1 star) Service was fast and... read more

This is my second visit to Ichiban and will not be my last. There are a lot of sushi places in Gainesville, but by far, I would recommend Ichiban. The location is a little daunting to find, but the food and service are well worth looking for it. On this trip I ordered the Lava Roll and the Tijuana Roll.... More

My husband and I frequent this sushi restaurant. The quality is always outstanding as is the customer service. Sometimes we will just go and sit at the bar and have a few rolls while out running some errands. We have also been here with larger groups and have always been taken care of extremely well. As we do not eat... More

I have visited Ichiban many times with friends and family. Each time the service has been warm and inviting, and the offerings were always fresh and delicious. The last time I was there was with my family and we had the platter that was for 4 people. It comes out on a wooden boat. The presentation was top notch, and... More

We have been eating at Ichiban for at least 10 years. We have NEVER had a bad meal. The fish is always fresh and presented beautifully. The service is friendly and helpful if you have a question. Sometimes they bring you something just to taste. I can't find a single bad thing to say so that is all I will... More

Had a late lunch with my husband and daughter. Spent $80 bucks on food I would normally have paid about half that for. Hot food is definitely not something I'd return for. Sushi was good unfortunately it's way over priced. The beef ribs were ok, they served with plain white rice and large chunks of barely steamed vegetable medley of... More

Good restaurant but so popular with high ceilings it is difficult to hear conversation. Varied menu with items for people who don't like sushi too. Parking is difficult.

My best advice for Ichiban is to let the sushi chef and your server surprise you. Ask the server to bring you their favorite appetizer and then order a roll of the chef's choosing. Also order sashimi and nigiri to your liking (I highly recommend the baby octopus and the yellowtail, which melts like butter because it's so fresh). No... More

Wonderful food! Wonderful staff! Have always been very happy every time we go here. They even put together a BEAUTIFUL platter of sushi (for take out) for my Fiance when he proposed to me at an outdoor location and he wanted to have a romantic dinner under the stars. The staff will always have a special place in our hearts.... More
