Yeah, I could do that again!

We visited Mikado for a lunch date on the first day of Gen Con 2015, so as you could imagine the entire downtown area was swarming with gamers and cosplayers, and naturally it was quite busy.

Service was good and the food was good as well. There was nothing over the top outstanding, but the presentation of the sushi was very nice.

Quick and friendly service. Accommodated 2 young kids in our group and made suggestions on what the kids would likely enjoy. We ordered several rolls and all were delicious. Outside seating was nice on the low traffic side of the restaurant.

I was part of a group of 14 for dinner in a private room at Mikado. Service was outstanding and the food was first-class. We had some first-timers at sushi and the selection was broad enough to satisfy everyone. Particularly liked the assorted trays of cooked sushi. Can't wait to visit Indy and go to Mikado again!

Don't let the dated decor deter you! Excellent sushi and sashimi. The hi macho was like butter and the sake sashimi was divine. Honestly their rolls were great, too. Loved it!

My daughter was here on business from Chicago. She was craving the Sushimi salmon. I love Sushimi, Sushi, and tempura, and miso soup. We also ordered the sauteed lobster. Our waiter was a good server. The food was abysmal. Starting with the tempura which was cold, chewy and tasteless. The sushi was small, also tasteless, and stale. The miso soup... More

Ate here for lunch on a weekday coming from a conference. Place is not as busy and I believe the price of their food is to blame. Food was average and service was friendly but nothing spectacular. "Meh. I've experience better" is spot on!

I ate here over the holidays. I thought I had been eating good sushi, but this exceeded all my expectations. I have been to Japan 3 times. I have enjoyed many great meals, but I can't remember sushi that was better.

Went with a co-worker and we shared two entrees, it was the perfect amount, and delicious. We were full but did not need to leave any behind (no fridge in our hotel rooms). Would definitely recommend and go back if in the area.
