This was a family outing during a stressful time while visiting somebody in the hospital. That said, we were all very hungry and looking forward to sushi and Japanese cuisine. The udon and tempura was fantastic. I was not at all impressed by the teriyaki chicken - under cooked, overly sweet and rice that was not very good. The sashimi... More

This is a great restaurant with a unique variety of top notch sushi. It's a great place to take the kids, especially if they like Asian food.

What a great night. It was just busy enough. Food tasted amazing. We have been at least 100 times and tonight we tried new rolls. Wow! I'm inspired to try a new roll each visit now. Staff is always friendly too. Not fancy like downtown but much better sushi.

My husband and I love this place. We always go here if we want fresh sushi and great service. I'd say we go here roughly once a month and I've never had a bad experience. The sushi here in my opinion is the best in Gainesville. The chefs will make whatever you want (in terms of a sushi roll) as... More

We have made supper at Ichiban Sushi with friends an almost weekly ritual. It has a great and accomodating staff that easily makes our group feel welcome as is grows and contracts. The menu has great variety and there is something for everyone, even those who may not have classic sushi on their eating list. The portions are generous and... More

We've been coming here for over 10 years. Alone at the bar, as couples, and now with the whole family. When we asked out son (now 12) what he wanted for his 4th bday dinner he said Ichiban. The food is consistently good. The service is phenomenal. Inna has been our server for years and is the most attentive, sweet... More

Ichiban is very delicious. I got Basil Tofu fried rice, my husband got Bourbon Chicken and my friend got a Voodoo roll and fried ice cream. Everything was great! And I recommend the Ichiban Chicken/Shrimp, too. The sauce is like a "bang-bang" sauce. Yum! And most meals come with soup or salad either choice is satisfying. The atmosphere is relaxed... More

A great place to gather with friends in a casual atmosphere with great food and service. Leo's Bacon Roll is special. Krab, avocado, shrimp, scallions, cream cheese, sauce and that hint of bacon make this a surprisingly tasty roll. Always good food here.

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
