The restaurant is very nice and intimate, although it can feel a bit squished if it's full. The sushi...extensive sushi menu, large rolls, but they fall apart way too easily.

I brought my mother in for a sushi lunch while shopping in the area today. We enjoyed it but found it a little pricey for lunch. Will come back for dinner sometime and branch out on the menu. Service was slow at first but very friendly.

Fish are stale for a Saturday night that we went. The sashimi dish was a big disappointment. The chef added spicy sauce on my son's order-- my son was 6, and he ordered rainbow roll. It took awhile for the server to being out beverages to our table. I will not return or recommend this place. It seems to be... More

We were hungry for sushi and I'm glad we chose Ichiban. Nice traditional Japanese feel once you get inside and they have the option of Japanese style seating. Big menu of sushi options. Everything was tasty and fresh for us. I liked that their spicy tuna wasn't coated in mayonnaise but instead nice chunks of fish. Good miso soup too.... More

This was our first time at Ichiban. Our friends have eaten here several times. We started off with fried Calamari which was very good. Then we got our salads which were bigger than I expected. Love the ginger salad!! And the egg drop soup was superb!! Then came our dinners...husband got the pork katsudon which he thoroughly enjoyed and has... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years and not only is the food the best sushi around but It is consistent. Never have I ever gotten bad service or bad food. It's a 40 min drive for me but well worth it for great food!! Keep up the good work guys!!

We're sushi people, we love sushi. When we first got here in Pensacola my husband first question was where's the best sushi place in town. His brother's fiancee introduce Ichiban to us, they are not really fond of sushi but she said she heard a lot of great things about the place. Look it up on tripadvisor and saw some... More

After reading reviews and in mood for some great sushi, elected to check this place out. Arrived on Monday evening around 8. Restaurant was fairly busy with approx 25-30 patrons. Atmosphere is relaxed but very nice. Clean, well appointed, music in background. Great for easy conversation. With a very generous selection of menu items and a plethora of rolls to... More

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
