“FOUR DINERS; VERY SATISFIED”
Review of Ichiban Buffet

Ichiban Buffet
Ranked #206 of 632 Restaurants in St. Augustine

A comfortable restaurant; we weren't packed tightly together. Our first impression was lots of cars in the lot at 5:00 PM for a restaurant off the tourist track. Inside, the food was well laid out including fresh oysters on the half shell! Excellent sushi bar; hibachi service as well. The hot foods need to be kept hotter; otherwise, we'll be sure to return any time we're in the area. Well worth the very reasonable price. Did I mention the eight kinds of real ice cream?

This buffet has some of the best Asian buffet food in Florida and all you can eat wide variety of sushi. This buffet never disappoints and is always open on the holidays. We hardly see family on the holidays and this has been our go to place to eat Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. It is great to bring visiting family and friends for an easy and affordable meal instead of cooking at home.

My favorite food in the buffet is the sushi. I, also, enjoy eating the oysters, soup, shrimp, fish, mushrooms, general tso chicken, and clams. It cost extra to eat the crab legs, but I don’t eat them.

This is by far hands down the best Chinese and Japanese buffet in the area. Easy to get to and easy to park. The place is immaculately clean and filled with service workers. All food is fresh. Hot is hot and cold is cold. A stop here is well worth your time. As a local I recommend.

Not nearly as good as we had expected. But prices were low and maybe, just maybe, that made up for it.

My daughter wanted to visit this place for her birthday and we were very disappointed. The variation in food was poor, the plates were dirty, and the buffet was understocked. It was certainly not anything to call home about:(
