Description: Welcome to Ichiban Buffet Rethink The Buffet! At Ichiban Buffet, flavor comes first, each day and every day. Kam and Ling Ngai, the brother and sister team who crafted the buffet, start each day with a commitment to making sure every Ichiban Buffet experience is the best it can be. Unlike the average buffet experience, the offerings at Ichiban are carefully nurtured from the start to the finish of every day. The result is an uncompromising commitment to flavor that brings first timers back and makes regulars spread the word.

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. There are only a few places in Mississippi that have filtered water. The oysters on the half shell are very fresh. The hot and sour soup is the best in Mississippi. Both Ichiban restaurants have fresh food. They have two. Flowood and Pearl. With the variety of food that is being offered I can't see anyone not being able to be satisfied. I'm a well traveled person and I know what is out there. I ask people all of the time where can you find a better restaurant in Mississippi for the money? The answer is always "you can't find a better restaurant for the money". Ichiban's is better than any casino buffet in Mississippi I've been to for the money. I know where the best deal is in Mississippi is. It's right here.

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 were several salads also and fruit for dessert. Everything was good. I did not enjoy seeing the employees dump all the leftovers from the buffet in the garbage before we left. Lots of hungry people that could use that food.

I want you to know we'll take your feedback into consideration and completely understand where you're coming from. Thanks for taking the time to review us, and I hope to see you again soon!
