This restaurant is okay and has a good atmosphere but there is nothing that distinguishes it from other sushi bars. It is somewhat pricey but deserves a good rating. I would go back if downtown but The Sukura on North Keystone is still my favorite.

This was the most expensive sushi I've ever eaten, but it was far far from the best. The two guys behind the sushi bar had zero personality or sense of customer service. The waitress was very friendly and had a great personality.

Beautiful rolls tended by a chef wearing a Colts ball-cap. Superbly HOT tuna rolls with roe atop! Large but cozy restaurant with fantastic waitstaff. The place was fairly unpopulated when we went but would be packed (according to locals) most nights. The night we went, the weather was wet and cold... likely kept people indoors. The menu was slightly limited... More

Decent quality fish. Too many cooked fancy rolls for non sushi eaters. Essentially good food but overpriced in my opinion. Point of fact: the service was really excellent which made up a bit. I'd give it 3.5 stars if that were possible. Bottom line: If you're here and hungry for Japanese it's better than good but don't go out of... More

I got sashimi, tempura and a fire in the roll. The sashimi tasted fresh and was served in a nice presentation. Our waiter was very friendly too. The tempura was tasty but weird that there was a tempura onion (like an onion ring)- I thought that was odd as most japanese places I go to have yams, enoki mushrooms, brocolli,... More

Well, when there are no good places to eat downtown, just chains, i suppose there is no incentive to be a great Asian restaurant. I join the chorus of reviewers bestowing a "poor" rating. The food wasn't awful, but definitely overpriced. Unlike others, the table service I received was OK, but at 6pm on Saturday night there were only 5... More

Excellent food. Ate here at a convention last August, and went for dinner here two out of the four nights we were in town. The food is authentic, delicious, and with an expansive menu. It is pricey, but with sushi, you get what you pay for. For a vegetarian like me, the options offered were excellent. The meat eaters/fish eaters... More

I went to this place with my family tonight. We order the food quickly, because they are closing soon. The food took average time to come out, but the way the waiter serve the food is horrible, instead come around deliver the food properly, he just deliver the food from the hall way. And when he refill the water, we... More

So, busy convention and they are understaffed. Empty tables and they aren't seating people. Walked across the street and got seated immediately. We waited and saw no sense of urgency from the staff at Mikado. Glad I am taking my money elsewhere.

Walking in, there was a smell of something bad, like fish going bad. That should have stopped me but I wanted sushi so I sat at the sushi bar. Service was good but the sushi was below average. Not horrible and I didn't have any stomach problems after. The sushi chef was not impressive and the quality of the product... More
