Sushi is one of those foods that you either love or hate. But if you’re in the “love it” camp, you’re all in. It’s practically imperative to have a list of favorite sushi establishments in your back pocket for whenever the craving strikes. There are lots of great options in the Tuscaloosa area, but we’ve whittled the list down to a few that you might want to add to your own list of go-to’s. These places even have menu options for the anti-sushi members of your party.
Ichiban Japanese Grill & Sushi
Located at 502 15th Street, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401, Ichiban Japanese Grill & Sushi is a great little establishment with friendly service and a simple but delightful menu.

Finish with a variety of sauces and toppings for a sushi roll that is uniquely you.
