Sushi close to USF

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... read more

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

We have been going her for over twenty years. We have considered everyone there like family. We have been traveling and taking care of family and justt have not made it a priority to get there. 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!!!!!

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.
