Smelled the fish. Chicken over cooked. The prices seemed high for what I received. I like cold water but the Glass of water I received did not have ice in it.

The great thing about this place is you can bring your large family or have a quiet dinner with your spouse. The food is great and the drinks were even better.

Excellent sushi and service. We have been going to Mikuni for many years. It's fun to seat at their bar to watch the boys in action.

The sushi at Mikuni is top notch as well as the service. They have a great selection of rolls and apps. Seared ahi tuna is fabulous. Always crowded and noisy.

Have been going there for 20 years, the best value, very comfortable and no rip off prices. Staff treats you with care and attention. Tempura is always just right.
