There are cheaper buffets around with good quality. This restaurant is priced a little higher than others in the area. Food was good but not sure the extra price was worth the extra exspence.

This is a Comfort Come-To that is always clean, reliable and the variety of foods are so much FUN! Great place to bring children and teenagers (who always eat so much...). The Open-ness of the seating allows for easy walking, not bumping, to the well-kept and clean food banks. Great for meetings and spending time with friends catching up--- never... More

I've ate at countless Chinese buffets over the years, and I must admit Ichiban might be the most stylish and upscale I have ever seen. Everything about the atmosphere seems so unlike a buffet and more like a trendy high class establishment. They even have buttons at the table to call over your server. I must say though even though... More

Everything was great! The only thing I don't like is when you go to get crab legs they LITERALLY put maybe 6 legs on a plate and give it to you. I hate that.

It was a pleasure having you over, Jasmine. We're always happy to serve you additional crab legs if you come back for more. - Kam N., Owner More

We eat here about 2-3 times a month when we visit Flowood, have never had a bad experience. Sushi bar is great, I just pick a few things that I like rather than trying everything, to many choices and you will fill up on sushi. The buffet is good lots of seafood dishes, really like the soups. If you like... More

I don't eat Chinese much, however, this is the place if you do. My other half was very impressed, and she's is picky. The wait however, is crazy. Not the place if you are in a hurry.

This is really your typical Chinese buffet place to eat. Rice, noodles, chicken, shrimp, sushi, etc. lots of choices. Not to bad of a price.
