Quaint restaraunt in a hopping neighborhood... – I love to go buy sushi as much as possible, and this place makes it possible. I have only been able to go here twice now, but both times have been absolutely amazing. Me and my wife came here on a busy Saturday afternoon when the Florida mall was packed, as soon as we stepped inside, the whole atmosphere changed. The setup is very nice, modernistic, yet still is able to hold the Oriental styling. Even though it was partially busy inside, it still seemed very quiet and relaxed. The waiter was very courteous (Have not been able to sit at the bar yet), and the suishi was very good.
I have only been to one better place I feel, and that was while I was visiting up in Maryland.
This will be my new favorite restaraunt for some time to come.
Two eat for under $25 – We love this place. My husband and I dine here at least once a week during their happy hour. We sit at the sushi bar, order 4 or 5 rolls and 2 or 4 nigiri pieces off the happy hour menu and spend around $25! And the sushi is delicious! The company is good too...the sushi chefs are friendly and engaging.
nearby Florida Mall...craving sushi...defintely check it out. – if your by the florida mall, try Izziban. I've been here just a few times before they started their happy hours, and they are always consistent with their quality of food and good service. I thought once they started happy hours that they would cut back on the quality and layout of their dishes. but i have to say that i am impresed with izzibans integrity and loyalty to their customers. they have a cool card you can get for free for repeat customers. I can;t think of any place that offers something like they do. its worth the visit.
Best Quality Happy Hour for Sushi you'll find in Orlando! – I love eating sushi, but like everybody else I dont have unlimited amounts of money to spend on sushi...which is unfortunate....BUT I love looking for great Happy Hour deals when I can. I've found other places before for cheap happy hour sushi, but that's exactly what you get...Cheap quality messy sushi....Not here. Wow. I was amazed at their $3.50 specials. Izziban delivers on fresh D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S quality and beautiful presentation. Their Happy hour deals are the best in town. I've been going nearly everyday for the lunch early bird 11am-12and dinner happy hours 5-7. Much props to Izziban. I'm Officially ADDICTED to IZZIBAN.
BEST I'VE EVER EVER HAD! – Honestly...i'm a HUGE sushi fan! I've eaten sushi everywhere in orlando and i'm happy to say i finally found the best sushi in town! i can hardly wait to go again! it's all so so yummy! make sure you get there from 3-7 during happy hour. rolls are $3.50!!! along with many other things! amazing sushi!!
Amazing – This place makes city search feel reliable...Izziban Sushi is amazing-the menu has a lot of authentic Japanese dishes....the appetizer menu alone is full of yummy traditional delicacies. The wasabi shumai and cream cheese dumplings (crab rangoon) makes my mouth watering for more just thinking about them. They have every type of sushi roll you could ask for. I went there with my friends twice in one day because it was so damn good. We love to sit at the sushi bar and watch the sushi chefs make sushi. There are screens at the sushi bar that plays movies and slideshows of customers to watch as you enjoy your sushi. Try the pineapple sake cocktail...that was awesome, best "saketine" I've ever had. The decor is fresh as their sushi. As far as the music goes, I guess they've updated it...lol glad we didn't have to listen to 80's music. a must go for sure!
yummy rolls! – I agree with the review below...the music is tacky and very distracting. The decor and layout of the place is really nice. Service is just ok. the menu is great and I really enjoyed the rolls we ordered. I also orderd white tuna sashimi which they gave you a nice cut of.
they don't skimp on the fish!! – Afte reading reviews and hearing about thier sake 2 4 1 my husband and i decided to go. I am a big fan of Shari, which I highly reccomend, however Izziban is much closer to us and Shari can get so crowded at times. The decor was way cute and the space was big and airy. It was a nice change from the so small sushi joints around town. We started with the fried calamari which was excellent. it came with 2 dipping sauces which were good as well. My husband got the chicken tempura which came with a huge bowl of miso(which was the best i ever tasted) and a nice portion of ginger salad. The portions are huge. AS for the sushi, the poritons were huge as well. The prices are a little more than average but once you get your meal, you see why. My roll had soo much fish in it which was awesome. usually places skimp on that and give you more rice ..not here. Everything was really good and the 2 for 1 sake and wine was a plus.
one compaint!! the music. it totally didn't go with the atmosphere which is trendy and chill. Lionel Ritchie, Celine Dion, ect played the entire time. It transported me to a skating ring back in the 80's!! A nice ambiant or electronic mix would have been nice. I want to go back but hopefully they change the station!
very impressed – izziban was very impressive. My girlfriend and I stumbled across this place on accident looking for what use to be saucy bellas (italian restuarant)....was slightly disappointed that they were not here anymore, but I love sushi anyway so I gave it a try. defintetely loved what they did with the decor and new liquor bar and sushi bar. I got to sample several sake's and now I know my favorite is Kurosawa. We would definitely reccoment the izziban roll, that was our favorite. Our server was very friendly and was very attentive. I guess it varies customer to customer, but we definitely had a great time and will be back very soon. I hope they stick around longer than saucy bellas did, because there aren't very many good sushi spots like this nearyby.
I should have followed my instinct – I know a better place...
After reading these reviews I decided to go with my husband to Izziban. We love sushi and sashimi and we are regular customers of Oriental House (in the opposite corner of OBT and Sand Lake, next to Outback).
We liked the first impression of the restaurant (modern and nice) although not many people.
We asked 5 minutes to read the menu and we started ordering. When we asked for a recommendation of sake, the waiter was not very sure about dry or sweet. Summarazing, it took 30 minutes for us to start drinking. Then, the food took 40 minutes (1 sashimi sampler, a salmon skin roll and Izziban or Hawaian roll).
Two of these were fine but the 3rd was immerse in sauce of maionaise, ketchup and cream cheese.
Then we decided to ask for Happy Roll and this was fast because they were already closed.
The roll came ok but cream cheese or other cream in excess.
We like japanese food and sushis but we like when we can feel the taste of everything, not a mask of cream.
I recommend you try to find Oriental House and you will be surprised how good is the food, how intimate is the atmosphere, wiaters have knowledge and price is honest.
