Japanese Restaurants in North Tampa

Ichiban Japanese Cuisine and Sushi Bar takes pride in having served “edible art” to the Tampa area for over two decades. Their focus on sushi, sashimi, and tempura is evident in the fresh and delicious fish they serve. The staff and sushi chefs greet you with the word “Irasshaimase,” the traditional Japanese welcome to a place of business. This warmth extends to the whole restaurant, where you can choose to sit at regular tables or on traditional pillows with tables just barely off the floor. Ichiban is often busy with repeat customers and newbies who’ve heard about the wonders of their traditional rolls and more unique combinations. Try the chirashi, which has locals and visitors alike raving—it comes in an actual boat and features 6 pairs of fantastic sashimi.
