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...

Good Japanese restaurant, menu at lunch is smaller. Spent 58 bucks for four lunches, extra rice for three of us and one sushi roll! Excellent lunch price for Japanese. Sushi good. Looking forward to trying larger menu at night and more sushi. Staff friendly and attentive, restaurant clean. Hibachi soup available at dinner only but got ginger salad and it... More

If you want to try some of the widest range of Sushi and Rolls, I think this is a perfect place. Your mind just can't decide from their extensive list of rolls, but yes, the food is yummy and it may happen you wanna try every other thing.

When we want Japanese Sushi/Hibachi - this is the place we go in the Middletown area. They produce a very consistent product that is always just as good as the last time we were there. We have never had an off night, even during the midweek. I am not experienced enough to get into the subtleties of the sushi and... More

Mikado is a very cool, atmospheric place that serves up decent Japanese style food at a competitive price. It is also a lot of fun, and the staff is pretty good. Try it, you'll like it!

Don't let the fact that you are walking into a basement in a parking lot in Middletown deter you, once you get in the door you will be pleasantly surprised. The restaurant has been decorated quite nicely with fun parasols hanging from the ceiling, interesting lighting, a fun quilt depicting all 50 states (odd choice for a Japanese restaurant, but...

After moving to the area I spent quite some time trying sushi restaurants to find something that compared to where I had moved from. Mikado is it for me. I'd even go as far to say that it's the best sushi I've ever had. Their menu is overwhelming with an extreme amount of unique options. The sushi is delicious, fresh,... More
