Best chinese buffet we have found in Orlando

As the title its the best chinese buffet we have found in Orlando, there is a massive selection with a sushi bar and chefs on hand, its not the freshest of decor but the food, service and price makes up for this.

Went with my husband 02/2015. 1st and last time going there. The sushi we ordered was ok. It was pretty hard to communicate with the wait staff :/. The bad part though was the hot food.y husband's teriyaki chicken was the worst I've ever tried. The chicken was weird, soft like mushrooms. There was definitely something weird about it. The...

The food was very good with a wide selection. Premises clean, atmosphere ok, but agree with previous reviewer who had the bill presented in the middle of the meal without asking. This also happened to us, there were plenty if free tables and we had only been in 30 minutes when the bill was presented to us with the waitress... More

Great selection of food in buffet, which was very clean and nicely presented, the only thing that let this restaurant down was the attitude of the two staff members we came not contact with. The first who seated us, no greeting, no eye contact ....... Second was our server who promptly presented us with our bill the minute we had... More

We visited this restaurant as we fancied a change and liked it very much. There was a good selection of good, fresh food. The restaurant was very busy and seemed very popular. Would definitely recommend and go back.

The new look is impressive and cool. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the food. The menu is the same, which is fine. The problem isn't inadequate choice. It that the choices just don't seem to be executed very well. We have tried the restaurant half a dozen times over the past few years, hoping to find something great.... More

My husband loved the food here, but he likes buffets. They have a huge assortment of sushi and seafood. I am not big on seafood, so for me it was a little disappointing. I really didn't like the food, but the service was good. So this is a mixed review...a thumbs up from my hubby and a thumbs down from... More

My family has been to Ichiban Japanese Restaurant, Orlando, numerous times over the years and have been very happy with the quality of food & service until the new owners took over. The new owners keep cutting back and cutting back until now they serve a very small portion of steak, chicken or shrimp with a small dollop of rice... More
