Ichiban Sushi is my recomended sushi restaurant in Gainesville, FL. I have been going here for almost 8 years, and it has become a tradition to celebrate anything (a closing, birthday, etc.) by getting sushi from Ichiban. There are other good places to get sushi in Gainesville such as Dragonfly, Kotobuki, Miya, Yamato...the list goes on. However, I've been coming here for years, it is conveniently in my "quadrant" of town, the prices are great and the food is wonderful.
Sushi and sashimi not your thing? Ichiban offers everything from Teriyaki to tempura, to katsu and Udon dishes. Ichiban also offers Pad Thai, a variety of appetizers including spring rolls, kimchi, fried tofu, edamame, gyoza, etc., salads (the wakame salad is excellent, as is the spicy tuna salad with wakame added to it), and miso or onion soup.
If you've read my other profile about Chutnees Indian Cuisine, you know I'm into two things: take-out and ordering the same things over and over again.
Tonight my boyfriend and I picked up some sushi, the same 6 rolls we always get:
Florida Roll - Salmon, tuna, cream cheese and avocado
Spicy Salmon Tempura Roll x 2 - Salmon tempura, avocado and spicy sauce, topped with tempura flakes
Crispy Roll - Grilled salmon, cream cheese, crab meat and scallions, deep fried in tempura flakes
Bagel Roll - smoked salmon, scallion and cream cheese
Eel Roll - sweet (eel sauce) smoked eel and cream cheese. It used to be cucumber rather than cream cheese, which I prefer and order instead of the cream cheese since we have so many rolls with cream cheese.
1 order each of spicy sauce and eel sauce, for extra dipping pleasure.
