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

its not fancy but the food is excellent and the staff is friendly. There is hardly ever a long wait time. Id much rather eat here then Dragonfly downtown.

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

The sushi was very good, the chicken katsu was also very good. The service was decent. The restaurant was large, clean and well maintained. The prices were a little high for lunch, in my opinion. $53 dollars for 3 people for lunch, plus tip.

Great Suchi in Gainesville, can be found here. Food is great and fresh. Service is a toss up. Sometimes we get a great server sometimes we get stuck with one of the managers, which should stay away from dealing with customers.

I have tried sushi at lots of places, most were bad, if not almost inedible, But Ichiban Sushi makes the absolute best sushi hands down. The taste, freshness, and quality are always consistent. I also love the Vegetable Tempera. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I ALWAYS get their sushi at least once a month. If I lived in... More

I've been to Ichiban 7-8 times and always enjoyed it, but the last 2 have been especially good. My wife loves sushi, and has sampled many of their rolls, but I am a little pickier. On my last visit before the most recent one they offered a special, tempura chicken with fried rice, drizzled with ichiban sauce. It was fantastic,... More

This is a reliable neighborhood Asian restaurant, with a good reputation for sushi. Other dishes are variable, but the yakitori and house-special shrimp are fine, and the green salad with ginger dressing offered as a side with a main course is number one, as the restaurant's name implies. Service can be confused at times, and the TV sets, normally a... More

Being from Gainesville, I know good restaurants and hey! This is a good restaurant. Pad Thai and sushi are my favorites from here. Best sushi in the city. I kid you not.
