Last windsurfing trip, Jennie, Freddy, Pamela, and I discovered Ichiban Japanese Seafood. Ichiban should probably change the name to "Giant Buffet That Had Sushi Until Very Recently When I Filled My Plate". Or maybe in Freddy's case "I Just Ate Ten Pounds Of Crab Legs. You Didn't Want Any Did You?"
OK, we didn't really eat all their crab or sushi, but we were quite satisfied. Some might say stuffed.
Is Ichiban beautiful? No. Is it clean? As clean as any other buffet. Does it have lots of tasty food? Yes. Is the staff nice? They're so nice that they waited to close until we had our fill of food.
Needless to say, the windsurfing group will definitely stop for dinner here again. I think this might be the only dinner place in Corpus that Jennie has liked so far. When Jennie likes a restaurant, it means something. You can read her review here.
Ichiban is located at 1933 S Padre Island Dr, Corpus Christi, TX.
