Was told by my son to eat here. Very good food at prices that are reasonable.There were just a few eating when we arrived but by the time we finished the place was full of students. Students usually know where to eat good cheaply.

The food I felt was okay. This was my first time here when visiting my son. He thinks it is great. I much prefer Mr. Chen's.

Hole in the wall, but don't let that deter you. The sushi is delicious! We got a large amount of food for a low price and the quality was great.

Ate at Ichiban and had awful stomach problems after. I gave it another try about a year later and nothing changed. Definitely need to change their ingredients so they don't make you sick.

Ichiban is a small, family-owned Japanese restaurant in Tuscaloosa. It's in the shopping center next to the bowling alley at 15th Street and Hackberry Lane, so it's not the fanciest restaurant (there's no hibachi grill).

Ichiban is extremely inexpensive but offers excellent food. The tempura is wonderful and the sushi is some of the best in town. They have really great fried rice.

I may possibly like their sushi better than chucks. This place is good, fast, and cheap. If you get a chance try the miso soup, crab sticks, and veggie spring rolls. All good!
