Best sushi ever!

Favorite place for sushi! The sushi chef was friendly and helpful. Ate the Super Dragon roll, Playboy roll and Tiger roll. We'll go there many more times I'm sure.

My hubby and I each had the sesame chicken lunch special. The miso soup and salad were a bit bland and my husband was still hungry after finishing his meal. However, the California Rolls were very good and fresh! We would return for the sushi.

I came from Lompoc just to try out their sushi. Their service was quick. I asked my waitress what she recommended. Within a few minutes, I had my two sushi rolls. Finished eating it, paid it, and now wiring this review. I like my rolls. It wasn't so heavy on rice compare to some sushi places; but I felt that... More

This is our Favorite Sushi place on the central coast. We drive half hour just to have dinner there. We usually have great service. I actually didn't like it the first time I went, but I tried a few different rolls and now it's our favorite. Rolls are half price when you order $15 worth of food which is not... More

My stepmother, sister and I visited Mikado in early February. I had seen BadGoat's review prior to visiting, so was a bit dubious, but my stepmom (who lives in SM) assured me that she had never had a problem here, so all qualms I had quickly disappeared. In fairness, we arrived at the "late lunch/early dinner" hour, so the lunch... More

We visited on the wrong day it appears. The service was terrible and my lunch was even worse. My husband did enjoy his sushi roll and green tea, but my lunch was awful, very disappointing. So bad that I returned it and didn’t eat. Our waitress was very distracted. The staff was busy filling a large to-go order and it... More

The service is fantastic as is the sushi. The prices are the most reasonable in town for great food. This is usually our go to place when going out for dinner.

Love Mikado....when you come in you are greeted heartily, the servers are fast, and the food is incredible!!! Very reasonable pricing, especially if you order from the YELLOW menu. Great rolls that are almost too pretty to eat :).

One of my favorite things about Mikado is the wide variety of Sushi. The Sushi taste fresh, and all the sushi I have tried taste good. Two of my favorites are the Baked Shell Fish Roll, and Spicy Crunch Roll, try them! I have ordered the Garden salad and I love the dressing they add, I'm not sure what kind... More

Small, but great. Nice to find a sushi resturant that isn't always so crowded, but lively. Food is good, sushi is great.
