Very good sushi

The Mt. Fuji is very good! The food tastes fresh and service is decent. This place is a bit small so keep that in mind with large parties.

Located in an old out of the way strip mall I wasn’t expecting much, and was delighted to find excellent service and excellent food! The sushi was fresh and tempura light and crispy. Very good value for the price. Our waiter was pleasant and professional and maintained that fine balance between being attentive and hovering. He was right there just... More

First, for the positive. Our server was excellent: very friendly and patient. The onion soup was very tasty. Now the negative: the summer rolls, described as "vegetables with herbs" were a lot of shredded lettuce and a few beans sprouts. Since you can't taste the rice paper they were wrapped in, it was just like eating a handful of lettuce;... 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 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 courteous. Prices are on the high... 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.
