The all you can eat sushi is such a bargain. Besides that it's the freshest and best sushi I've had in Louisville. The food can be a little slow when it's really busy, but I've never really had a problem. Fresh fish, best sushi, and a great staff, there's not much else that you could ask for.

Absolutely amazing! I go there all the time for the All-you-can-eat sushi ($23.95). Included in that price is soup and salad. Mr. Lee is extremely friendly and willing to help you out. I highly recommend the spicy tuna rolls and the shrimp tempura rolls. You would think with All-You-Can-Eat the portions would be small, but not with Ichiban. I can barely fit some of the pieces in my mouth whole!

Ichiban was introduced to me and my husband by some of their Sunday regulars... some friends of ours. We went with our two kids. They gave them child-rigged chop sticks and entertained them the whole time. We LOVE this restaurant and take all our friends there to show it off! And our kids (7 and 14) now know how to use chopsticks!

I ate at this place for the first time this afternoon, after finding out that this WAS the old Benihana's location, we entered with lowered expectations. But nonetheless, the food was great, the entertainment was excellent and the value was pretty good as well, especially for the great quality of the food.

This place may not be that aesthetically pleasing but the food (especially the SUSHI) really is!! The sushi is the best in Louisville!! The value of the food is great as well, it is competitively priced. This place is a hidden gem that more people should visit!!

Ichiban is much better than ShoGun. Plus, you get more food at a better price!

This place was a complete rip off. This is "all you can eat," but the waitress refused to stop by my table for 30 minutes after my first order of sushi. I was charged full price and received little value.
