Best Sushi Around – I have lived in Orlando for over ten years now and have been eating sushi the whole time. Ichiban is the longest open sushi restaurant in Orlando, which alone says a lot. My boyfriend and I have tried numerous places in the downtown Orlando as well as UCF area, and this sushi tops it all. The fish is always fresh, and they keep there roles simple yet delicious. The Jen roll, is the best roll hands down I've ever had. We usually sit at the sushi bar, and the sushi chef's are super friendly! Owen is the best! I recommend this place to anyone looking for fresh sushi as well as a great experience!
Bad Night! – I ate at Ichiban a month ago with my mother and brother to celebrate my last semester in college. The staff was very rude! It took them 45 minutes just to order an appetizer and a drink! I ordered the sushi and the sushi was not fresh. My mom ordered tempura and she was really upset about it being too greasy!! My brother said the food was okay..but he complained about not getting any refills on his water.
Ichiban is mediocre at best – I recently went to Ichiban, with a friend, for lunch. The restaurant was her suggestion. I have dined at Ichiban in the past and I was not impressed. Well, my most recent visit solidifies my previous impression of the restaurant. Ichiban lacks in so many ways. I would like to start with service. The wait staff lacks customer service skills. They are short tempered and seem to be annoyed by the restaurant patrons. In addition to the poor service, the sushi is mediocre at best. The food lacks the freshness and flavor when compared to other sushi restaurants. I have never been a big fan of this establishment, but my most recent visit will definitely be my last. I would not recommend this restaurant to an enemy.
What a mistake – We will never leave Amura'd again! Decided to try a new place downtown and was highly disappointed. Fish was not fresh, it was dried out and fishy. We ordered the Hawaiian role and Volcano roll, the Hawaiian role was tastless. There was no site of spicy tuna to be found. If you love bland sushi this is the place for you.
AMAZING SUSHI!!!! – This was my first time going to Ichiban and I was sooo impressed! Not only was the sushi sooooo good, but the atmosphere added to the whole experience. It has a Japanese theme along with local art on the walls...awesome! I cant wait to bring all my friends here. Great location too! A must try for any sushi lover.
Worst Japanese Food EVER!!! – I had a terrible experience at Ichiban. They made me wait two and a half hours because they were not organized. The service was terrible...they did not offer refills or offer any assistance. I love japanese food, however, their fish was spoiled. I had a terrible stomach and diareah afterwards.
good food but service is not that great – i like the food in here but they are soooooo slow and they charged my card for a meal that i did not even consume. i bought just one roll and the next day in my bank i had a charged for $100??? crazy.
Best sushi in orlando!!!!! – Let me start out by saying They have the best sushi!! They have been there 20 years and the owners are extremely friendly. I have been eating there for years they just got a new sushi menu that has every combo of rolls you can think of. If you are a non sushi eater they have a full menu of cooked food. Once you try this place you will crave it. Very trendy place to take a date or just hang out and drink sake with friends.
I HEAR ITS CHINESE OWNED NOW – IT USED TO BE THE BEST PLACE IN TOWN, NOW IT HORRIBLE HAD AN ALL AROUND BAD TIME THE PAST FEW TIMES. SLOW SERVICE AND BARELY OK FOOD.
Best Sushi in Orlando!!! – I have been eating at Ichiban for years. They have the best sushi and a great atmosphere. I was just there and they said that they are getting a new sushi menu with about 60 new rolls. I am very excited.They also have great service, that will take time out and explain the rolls. For anyone who wants to eat there, it is so good. Once you start eating there, you will crave it.....
