“Great value”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I've eaten at this restaurant at least 5 times. Loved it at first and thought I'd finally found a good Oriental buffet in Orlando. Yet, the last time I went I was disappointed, so was hesitant to try it again. I read the reviews to see if quality had gone downhill and price had gone up. It appeared to have, but went anyhow. Glad I did. It was very good, tasty, and great selection. Went on a Sunday afternoon, and even though it was the weekend the price was only $11. Great selection of shrimp, oysters, even crawfish. I saw many getting their money's worth just on a plate full of oysters alone! Hibachi is a nice addition; you pick out what you want and they bring it to your table. I've tried numerous Chinese buffets in Orlando and this is the best one (that Panda place was terrible, even with a coupon).The seafood alone makes it a great value.

“OK stay, nothing spectacular”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

The coupon for 15% off is only if the entire group orders a soda, so beware of this. The buffet itself is okay - they are slow to replenish the sushi. The hibachi part is made to order to make sure that you tell the cook what you want. There is a bit of selection but overall, nothing spectacular. If you want crab legs, drop another $3.

“Pretty good chinese buffet”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Tried the Ichiban soon after it opened. Food is good, value is OK. There are other places like it that I've been to that were better - see some of my other reviews. If you're in the UCF area and want an OK chinese/oriental buffet, by all means go to Ichiban. It's not very expensive and convenient. Just don't walk in waiting to be thrilled!
It IS fast food oriental buffet!

“Definitely worth a "pass"--as in "pass by before wasting your money"”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We walked into the former Perkins and everything looked nice, but upon closer inspection, there were lots of problems. Bad food labeling (not helpful for groups which would include vegetarians), limits on sushi (the one vegetarian item was mislabeled), and I heard from others in my party that the sushi tasted "old". Nothing for ice cream toppings. Definitely not worth the $11; we are not returning.

“Been to many asian buffets, this one is nice”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

A nice asian buffet. About $8 lunch and $15 dinner. Has many selections of chicken, meat, rice, noodles, shrimp, vegetables, soup, temaki, about 10 different sushi rolls. I am not sure of the other reviews but I thought this was place was well worth it and I will go again.
