The staff are always welcoming and remember you. They treat you like family. The lunch boxes are a terrific deal and the food is always good. This is one of the best sushi spots in Tampa. If you are around the USF area, it is a great stop for lunch to get great food and quick service. I prefer lunch... More

I do love their food. Although the breaded and deep-fried sushi is a bit pandering to American tastes for me. I want Japanese food, not an American version of it. The miso soup is good, too. The lunch boxes are my favorite. This is getting three rather than four stars for the service. It used to be that you could... More

The caterpillar roll was delicious sushi even for a non-seafood fan. The Tampa roll was also quite good. Portions are bigger than most sushi restaurants.

Several happy hour rolls to include a great grouper roll...the day we were there it was a all female sushi chef staff, which is unusual. They were very friendly and entertaining. Great happy hour value.

From 3-6 M-F enjoy happy hour prices on a great selection of rolls. The happy hour beer is for US domestic only (Bud) rather than Japanese domestic (the good stuff like Sapporo, Kirin and Asahi). I was impressed with the quality of the choices along with the outstanding quality of the fish (sashimi and rolls). Close to USF.

We love to go to Ichiban for HH (3-6pm daily.) Half-priced Saki, discounted beer and a good variety of familiar and new rolls. They are so tasty, we rarely order sushi. The sushi we have eaten has always been fresh and flavorful. Try the Yummy, Jr., so good.

Eight people, bill under $150 (including alcohol) great food & service. A bit impersonal, but maybe I was expecting a 5-star experience...
