best sushi in Tampa, hands down
I have had sushi at some of the best restaurants in Vancouver BC and Japan, and this place is right up with them. First off, it is a 100% authentic JAPANESE restaurant, not Chinese/Japanese -- I don't know where the previous reviewer got this from, as the owners and entire menu are Japanese (I spoke Japanese with them, so I know for sure!). All the fish I have ever had here has been impeccably fresh, and the portionsare incredibly generous. Their unagi is hands-down the best I have ever had... Slightly char-grilled and melt in your mouth. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!
I have been going here for 4 years. I have eaten at many, many different sushi restaurants, and there is no comparison. This is by far the best in Tampa. Hope you give it a chance - it will be a treat!
Really great value lunchboxes under $10. Fresh and clean flavors, quick service and nice dining area. They have all your traditional favorites along with some surprising special rolls. You will definitely leave full! Portions are huge!
Horrible sushi. Although the service was prompt, the sushi itself was not fresh and later caused unpleasant after effects (food p0isoning). I highly do not recommend Ichiban if you consider yourself a sushi lover, or if you don't like feeling sick for hours!
