    Default Ichiban Buffet, St. Augustine

    Ichiban is your typical Asian buffet. Many choices, hot or cold.

    The food is decent and fresh, with many seafood options.

    Sushi bar...it's decent, nothing fancy. Mostly rolls with two selections of tuna and salmon sushi. Lots of creamy (Japanese mayo) drizzles and fake crab on the rolls.

    Stir fry bar...very nice. Load your plate up with varied, fresh ingredients and they cook it to order. One of the better parts of the buffet. Too bad this is overlooked by most diners.

    Cold Seafood...shrimp, mussels, oysters, and crayfish. All fresh and not spongy (meaning old).

    Hot Seafood...shrimp, oysters, crayfish, king crab (+$4). Again fresh, hot, and not spongy.

    Other entrees...Almost everything you can imagine on a typical Asian buffet. Some better than others. It's best to sample a tiny portion first.

    The salt & pepper crusted shrimp was odd as it was cooked and coated with the shells still intact. Impossible to peel and eat.

    The BBQ ribs were quite good. Very tender with a lightly smoked Asian style sauce.

    Hot Tea...my biggest pet peeve. This is an Asian restaurant, where is the hot green tea? They only offered generic black tea. Loss of a star!

    Value...dinner was $11, not bad considering everything that they offered, including dessert and soft serve ice cream.

    Yes!

    I'm tired of walking the hood, so we ventured up to the outlet mall in St. Augustine. So nice to walk in A/C!

    We have one on the Island. We go for lunch, $7.99, same foods as dinner! I haven't seen a stir fry bar. Maybe I'll ask. Kids like it because they don't have to get a whole roll but just pieces. I like that I can my 'Chinese' food. Last time they had fresh octopus.

    I love this place, meant to do a review myself its fresh and new and has not yet got the buffet ICK that inevitably comes with a self serve repeat menu location.
    I would still rather have a dish cooked to order this would be my go to place for Chinese buffet right now.

    Well I really love the hot and sour, but it's too thick so i amended with some won ton juice and some egg drop so this soup is all three with chopped chives on the top. It was really good.

    I thought the soup looked interesting...and, except for a few green beans I don't see much in the way of veggies...
