Ichiban Sushi Buffet - Georgetown

Took my on to the new place in Georgetown, in the Bealls shopping center.

I was really impressed with the Sushi selection. Not only was the ngiri sushi selection fine (9-10 different ones), there were at least 6 different sashimi, including tuna, salmon and mackerel. The mackerel was just astonishingly good. Only beef was that the sashimi was directly on ice, so some pieces were a little watterlogged. There was a small selection of Chinese food (we didn't touch it, but it looked OK), a very small Mongolian BBQ selection (some poeple near us seemed to enjoy it).

The roll section wa outstanding. They were a little heavy on the cream cheese based rolls (this is Gtown after all), but lots of nice spicy pieces as well. Dinner is $17 for adults, $10 for kids, lunch is $10 I believe.

I have no idea how they'll be able to maintain the quality and price. And there are some problems with service at other tables (the couple were trying to determine where the house wine came from and the waitress kept repeating there wasn't a bartender). But all in all, for middle class sushi (fresh but not necessarily imaginative and not expensive it worked for me.
