Ichiban Japanese Buffett is probably the best buffet I have ever tried in Colorado or anywhere! I have had many dinning experience in Las Vegas, Denver, California, and foriegn countries but no other Buffett can compete with quality of the food you get from Ichiban....Especially if you factor in the price you paid for the food. My wife and went to my medical appointment today and on the way home, she wanted to have some lunch and we just happened to be by Ichiban so we decided to give them a try. The price for lunch is $18.95 and if you are 60+ you also get a 10% discount. First of all there are a Japanese station that is full of sushi. And these are not just your cheap rolls but great tuna, white tuna, red snapper, eel, and hammachi nigiri sushi! I could not believe it. Then there is a Chinese station full of soy sauce pork ribs (real ribs and not just meat with bones like you find in other places), seafood fried rice with large shrimps, Happy Family with fantastic seafood, roasted chicken, tempura shrimps that would put some Japanese restaurants to shame, bbq pork, bbq ribs, whole mussels, clams, and many others. They also provided pizza which seems to be selling slowly but looked very fresh. I was concentrating on less filling food :-) so I did not try the pizza. They also have a dessert station that included penna cotta, egg tart, mango tart, tiramisu, flourless chocolate cake, and many others. These cakes are cut to order and in display case so they won't dried up. They also have a chocolate fountain with strawberries, cotton candies, banana, and other items to dip with. They still have a salad bar, soup bar, and fruit bar. I was unable to try. I was too full!! I can't say enough about this place. The best way I could describe it is a mix of Todai and the Boston Sea Party, if people remember those 2 long gone restaurants they would know how great this place is and this place, Ichiban Japanese Buffett, also sells liquor! Go there before the owners wake up and either hike the prices or cut the quality.More

Today was my first experience at Ichiban Japanese Buffet and it was a good one! This is a place where you fill your plate (s) from the buffet line and your drinks are provided by the servers. The buffet lines had plenty of hot entrees...and their assortment of food was more than bountiful. Also on the buffet is a wide assortment of sushi...the pieces I sampled were great. They also have a station similar to a Japanese Steak House where they cook the meat and vegetables in front of you...no fancy flipping eggs or setting onions on fire. I had the prepared entree with everything but eggs...it was delicious! They also have a desert bar and ice cream. I will be back again on my next trip to this area. Go hungry, you will not be disappointed! Meal plus tip was less than $16...all you can eat!More

This place is great if you love Chinese food and Japanese food. Sushi and sashimi are great with a variety of hot dishes like pork ribs, sweet and sour chicken, soup, fried rice etc. What I love the most is the sushi bar, I think...the price you pay at this all you can eat buffet beats any other (about 20$ pp). I highly recommend!More

Nice Japanese buffet located in Doral. The place is small nice service but the food is average so that is the reason of the grade I’m Giving it.

If you are looking for quantity over quality, you have arrived at the right place. Ichiban offers an unlimited buffet of Japanese food, including Nigiri Sushi, Sashimi and Sushi Roll. If you don’t like Japanese food or raw fish, they also offer a wide variety...of Chinese food.More

This is the best Japanese Buffet in Doral. Everything is well done, and very fresh. The sushis are delicious. The service is excellent, and the price is really good.

Buffets can go downhill fast but Ichiban is not one of those. I was incredibly impressed with the quality and the selection of the sushi on the buffet. I did not get the feeling that this was an operation geared toward profit at the expense...of the customer. The options were fresh and delicious and not over-riced! While the sushi options are great, the hot buffet is slightly more limited than some of the other local buffet options. This doesn't mean that the hot buffet is bad - just that it's a bit limited. What they did do, they do well. I did not have room for desert but the food was really great!!More
