“Nicholasville clearly does not know what good Chinese food is....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

I cannot begin to describe the numerous flaws in customer service, food quality and value this restaurant suffers from, and I rarely give negative reviews at all but when a waitress chases your wife and daughter into the parking lot to prevent them from leaving until I, who was in the restroom, paid for the overpriced buffet, I'd say that money is their only concern. Avoid this place unless you will die without below average buffet style Chinese food..

“A very good Chinese Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

There are several excellent oriental restaurants in the Bluegrass region, but very few good Chinese Buffets. Ichiban is a medium size restaurant with good to excellent items. If you are a seasoned fan of Chinese Buffets you will be able to pick the best items by sight. It is my favorite restaurant when I want a variety instead of just one entree. The sushi bar has the typical offerings which are fresh and well made. The value is great, usually no crab legs but at the prices they charge that is understandable. The sushi alone makes Ichiban a bargain.
