Wilmington, DE and sushi are not normally used in the same sentence when talking about great meals... it is however, the best you are going to find in the area and though you are not in San Francisco or Seattle, it's generally very good - though definitely overpriced - I have also found that the quality can vary, depending on...

I've been here many times over the years, both for lunch and dinner. I went with a co-worker. We shared the Veggie Tempura - soggy and very greasy. Also - the waitress couldn't tell us what the veggies were - one was indistinguishable. The dips that came with them were good - although the one was supposed to be a... More

We had a great dinner and time at this sushi restaurant. Waitstaff was great.. We experienced no up selling as noted by previous reviewer. We were not rushed which meant a lot to us since we were visiting with our daughter. Appetizers included calamari, cowboy yakatori and lobster dumplings...all of which were well prepared and delicious. Sushi was fresh and... More

Went with my daughter for dinner last night. The restaurant was extremely warm even for a hot day. I ordered the calamari which was absolutely delicious. Daughter got miso soup, which I had no interest in as it was almost 95 degrees and frankly, miso soup is miso soup. We each ordered 2 rolls and shared all of it. The... More

Lots of activity with locals and a cool, modern layout. Pretty good sushi with a fair selection on the menu. We had excellent service from Lois. Good spot to hit after a long day of travel. Nice beer selection, too.

If your appetite is sufficient, and you have a friend or colleague present ask for the boat - more sushi and sashimi than you eat for just over $30 each. Fortunately my Russian colleague was up for it. OUr other colleagues from Thailand, Italy and Iowa all enjoyed theirs, too. On the Thursday night Mikimoto's was about 2/3 full. Our... More

Excellent lunch. I set off to go to the Washington Street Alehouse, but it was packed. So I thought I would give the sushi place next door a try, and glad I did. Great portion sizes, after Mizo soup to start this is me half way through the sushi rolls. Really tasty, great service. would definitely recommend

I am sure all of us regulars on here go through the same process. I read the most recent reviews and then I read the worst ones to get both an idea on what was wrong as well as be amused by the rants of others. There were some interesting ones for Mikimotos. A common theme in other reviews seemed... More

The food was great but the service was only so so. I went there by myself and they didn't want to seat me at a table because I was a party of one. I convinced the lady to seat me at a table, she did, right behind the hostess stand. Talk about cramped. Because I was by myself, I kept... More

First, we sat down, and waited... and waited... and waited... neither the hostess who sat us nor anyone else appeared to notice that no one came around to offer drinks or even to simply say, "I'll be right with you." We, finally, had to ask the sushi chef if it was a buffet restaurant or is someone coming to check... More
