Kate and I stopped at Ichiban with friends for a quick, light meal on the way out for the evening. The avocado heaven appetizer was an interesting concoction of avocado, mayonnaise, shrimp bits and some other ingredients that were baked and then stuffed back into an avocado shell for scooping onto rice crackers. It was good but probably not something... More

This is by far my favorite sushi restaurant in Pensacola. For some reason, this town puts a lot of mayo and/or cream cheese in every roll, which I do not like, but Ichiban has many rolls without. Also, like other sushi restaurants in this town, the sushi can be pricey. The special chef rolls are amazing, and the tuna tartare... More

We're not in this area very often, but when I lived here a few years ago, I frequently went to Ichiban. We were back recently and I'd forgotten how good the sushi is. It's so good. I had the spicy scallop roll and a volcano roll. I couldn't finish it all but it was so good. My husband had tempura... More

I started going to Ichiban in January of 2010 . . . this is by far the best Sushi place I have been to. My recommendations are their California Roll, Crunch Roll, Ichiban Roll, Long High Roll, Samuria Roll, Shogun Roll, Spicy Tuna Roll, Tjiang Roll (my favorite of all time!),and the Volcano Roll (a close second to the Tjiang)....

Love Ichiban! This place has fresh sushi & wonderful service...consistently. I eat here 4-5 times a month with family or co-workers and have never been disappointed. We travel a lot & the sushi ranks right up there with any other sushi restaurants we have visited in larger cities.

We always know the food will be 'the best' when we go to Ichiban. The bento box is a favorite and there is always some left over to take home. Great sushi. Wide selection. Very popular place in Pensacola for good reasons. A big pot of green tea and some miso soup are great comforts on a 'cold' day in... More

Good lunch deals. Good selection of rolls. Bento boxes come in a variety of meats. We got the chicken and it was unfortunately really really dry and rubbery. The roll we got was really tasty though

We stopped in here on a Friday night. It wasn't packed, but they were turning tables. The server met us as soon as we sat down, brought hot towels, and got our drinks. He was very cordial and attentive throughout the meal. The ginger salad was alright. They put way too much dressing on it though. The miso soup was... More

My girlfriend and I have been going to Ichiban since 2010 and not much has changed, which is a good thing. The restaurant offers one of the more "authentic" Japanese experiences. The booths require you to remove your shoes, the restaurant is small, but cozy. The chefs make the food look attractive and it appears (and tastes) like the ingredients... More

I was introduced to Ichiban by one of my best friends. Is very cute and comfortable. Pleasant atmosphere. Their volcano roll is AMAZING. The crab meat they put on top is the perfect finish. I always order sweet tea when I go to restaurants and theirs is really good. I would definitely say its a great go-to spot. Service is... More
