Hadn't been here for maybe a year, but always enjoyed chicken teriyaki. It was OK again tonight. Tasty chicken and sauce, fresh vegetables and rice. Maybe should've been a bit hotter (not cool to the touch). Wife enjoyed her sushi roll. Seating was less than pleasant: back by both the kitchen door AND the restrooms. Part of an expansion. We...

Went on 2 occasions within 10 days and both times i left very disappointed. I tried a different dish each time but my wife gets the same tokyo roll and loves it. I got a smaller tray and 2 rolls and a soup on other occasion. My katsu fish was cold and the rice was very mushy

You don't expect for a little sushi joint in a strip mall to be amazing but it absolutely was great food and the servers were so nice! Make time if you're in Gainesville to stop on by!!!!

Ichiban had been around forever, so I've been many times in the past. It's been a while since I've been, least a year, but I don't remember their prices being so high. My husband and I had lunch there today (2/7) and dropped $31 for a bento box and Pad Thai. Our waitress was nice, but not the most attentive... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and have always been pleased with our food selections without exception. The one stickler is the often slow delivery process. Hence, only a Good rating.

Their sushi tastes great. This is the third straight visit where I have waited 45 minutes or longer to get my sushi order. The first was a Friday night which I could understand. But Saturday at 2pm and Thursday and 6 pm just shouldn't cause these kinds of waits. NW Gainesville is ripe for another sushi place.

The Mt. Fuji is very good! The food tastes fresh and service is decent. This place is a bit small so keep that in mind with large parties.

Located in an old out of the way strip mall I wasn’t expecting much, and was delighted to find excellent service and excellent food! The sushi was fresh and tempura light and crispy. Very good value for the price. Our waiter was pleasant and professional and maintained that fine balance between being attentive and hovering. He was right there just... More

First, for the positive. Our server was excellent: very friendly and patient. The onion soup was very tasty. Now the negative: the summer rolls, described as "vegetables with herbs" were a lot of shredded lettuce and a few beans sprouts. Since you can't taste the rice paper they were wrapped in, it was just like eating a handful of lettuce;... More

This is my second visit to Ichiban and will not be my last. There are a lot of sushi places in Gainesville, but by far, I would recommend Ichiban. The location is a little daunting to find, but the food and service are well worth looking for it. On this trip I ordered the Lava Roll and the Tijuana Roll.... More
