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

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
