A hidden gem!!!!!

We happened to get off Route 9 north at Exit 15 because of traffic and noticed the sign for this place on the back of a building. After our appointment, we decided to give it a try. All I can say is I'm glad we did. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant when I noticed it was... read more

So our family likes going to the hibachi grill for birthdays/special occasions. It's always entertaining and the food is great. The only drawback is that the place is getting dirtier and dirtier. It's getting to the point where it's just too disgusting and we won't be going anymore. I wish they would clean it up quite a bit because it... More

I've been going to this restaurant for a long time. I absolutely love the sushi. It's fresh and creative. They renovated the place years ago, and I love the new setup. I must say, however, that it always has the feel of an intimate date, even when you're just there with a friend. I'd definitely recommend this place.

Gone here for years, food is great but service is terrible, don't come on your lunch break because you will not make it back in time, you could be the only person in the restaurant and it will still take about an hour

My husband and i have visited for dinner on a few occasions. we've had sushi, sashimi, appetizers, desserts. The sushi is very fresh and delicious. They have a good selection of sake as well. Their green tea ice cream is delicious. Service is friendly, of a bit disorganized. worth a trip!

The Mikado has been open for many years, has endured changes in managment, undergone a major rennovation, seen staff come and go, and it remains the best sushi restaurant around. The whoe restaurant is subterranean so it has a slightly odd feel to it but the fish is fresh, well-prepared and always delicious. Other cooked Japanese food is also very... More

I seem to wind up here rather frequently because there isnt much around MIddletown for decent sushi, sadly. I actually love the food here but the service defintiely detracts from the overall experience. it's kind of ridiculous how dismissive and rude the service is. but like i said, the food makes up for it and I keep coming back. now...
