Recently had the opportunity to visit this location and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. ALL of the food was very good with a wide selection to choose from. Also enjoyed their deserts as well. If you're in Flowood.. it's a great place for lunch.

My mother and I were recently shopping in Jackson and we decided to have lunch at Ichiban. We have eaten here before but it has been over 2 years since I ate at Ichiban. I don't eat buffets much because it's too easy to over eat. We enjoyed our meal very much. They have a lot of different types of... More

Again another good meal at Ichiban. Consistently clean and the food is fresh. I enjoy the sushi offerings with numerous tuna selections. I'm not a buffet person but Ichiban is superior to almost all others!

For the money you can't beat this restaurant! I've eaten at the high end restaurants all over the USA. For the price you pay you're getting a wonderful meal. It's very clean. There is not a better place to eat in Mississippi for the money. The crab legs are what I go for on the weekends. The water is filtered.... More

We had a late lunch (2:00) and were told that they would not be putting out more food on the buffet and would be closing at 3pm. After taking a look at the offerings we decided there was plenty to choose from. Because I am on a medically necessary low fat/nonfat diet I choose sushi, steamed shrimp and salmon. There... More

It was a busy Friday evening while visiting Jackson for a trade show. Decided to try Ichiban's and was absolutely impressed with the huge selection of Sushi and prepared food! The tables were clean and the atmosphere was pleasant. Want to go back for dinner again there tonight! Don't miss this little slice of sushi Heaven.....
