Stopped here while visiting USF campus just down the road and really had a good time! There were happy hour drink specials and a sushi special for the night that was very reasonable and included multiple options to get a taste of many things. Our favorite was the family style shrimp fried platter - one of the best fried rice... More

We had lunch here during a visit to Tampa. We'd never been to this place and wanted some sushi. They had a "happy hour" on sushi and drinks. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was very VERY good, fresh, and TASTY! I would definitely eat here again. Also, the bathrooms are very tastefully decorated and clean! A plus!

Enjoyed it so much I'm back 24 hours later. Munk roll, hurricane roll, volcano topping. Yum. Fresh edamame. I eat a lot of sushi so I've gotten picky. This place is very good.

I have been to several places in this genre around the country, and I have to say, ICHIBAN for me is the best there is. You can't beat the quality of taste here, you can't - and the atmosphere is the best. They must concentrate on being familiar with you, because they treat you, like they know you, and they... More

Things have settled down so yesterday we decided to go back to our favorite spot. As we walked in we were greeted as if... More

We stopped in for an early dinner. We got some of the early bird specials and a few sushi rolls. The staff was fast and attentive. The atmosphere was clean and inviting. We throughly enjoyed our dinner. It's probably some of the best sushi I've had since being in Okinawa Japan! Must try!!!!!

We went early on a Monday evening. The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived, but was close to full when we left. We were greeted right away and seated in a room away from the door. We ordered the Sushi sampler, the Tempura sampler and the Sushi Dozen. We had one member of our group who is highly allergic... More

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
