This place has an all you can eat food menu that is absolutely huge and made fresh! Maybe 30 pieces of sushi on the menu and all different kinda of cooked food like chicken beef and shrimp teriyaki and tempura for 22 bucks absolutely amazing price for the amount and variety of things not sitting in. Buffet line but made fresh to order. We'll worth an hours drive if not more.

I have been to ichiban about 10 times within the past 2 years. And tonight has made 11. I made a rating table on what I look for in a restaurant and from that you can decide what you is important to you the niceness of our waitress was a 5/5 this is not including the time which is a 1/5 the raze of food was a 5/5 which is what most people look for and the all you can eat is very affordable and good. The atmosphere of the restaurant is a 4/5 because the tv's were not on over the sushi bar and some walls lacked decorations. The class or upscale level is a 2/5 as the drinks were served in plastic and forks with a disposable napkin which napkin shortage is another problem wish there were more napkins. The greeting and seating portion of the night were terrible 1/5 one of the waiters looked at us and rolled his eyes at us then proceeded to walk away then decided to turn back around and sit us down gave us our menus and walked away with out saying anything. The overall privacy of the restaurant is 3/5 since the tables are very close together. For how busy they are it is not necessary to have them so close. My rating of a 3 was everything averaged out together. I hope my review helps you all. Enjoy

Quick service, very good sushi, with a tiny bit of rice. Roll assortment was huge. I loved the conch and the baby scallops. The tempura was pretty bad. Stick with all you can eat sushi.

We've been going to Ichiban for at least 5 years and it's one of our favorite places for sushi. For $21.50 cash ($22.95 credit card) you can order all the sushi you can eat. Just don't leave any on the plate or you will be charged extra. We order what we know we'll eat and if still hungry, we order more. The dinner comes with a nice sized salad with great ginger dressing, miso soup and all you can eat terriaki chicken or steak, crusted chicken or fish and friend vegetables. If you don't like sushi, there is a wide variety of Chinese entrees. The sushi bar is a nice size with TV's playing the most popular sports games. Ichiban is a casual place where shorts and a t-shirt are fine for dinner. Their website is http://www.sarasotaichiban.com/ which includes a menu.
