Not bad, but not great

Atmosphere was nice. Food was tasty, but overpriced. I've had better sushi for lower prices in bigger cities. Staff was helpful and friendly. Bathroom was small, the stall door was broken, and it wasn't well lit. Nice place, but not sure I'll visit again.

My husband and I were looking for a Japanese restaurant in downtown Indianapolis, then we came across with Mikado. Great location, very nice atmosphere and the waiter was awesome. Food a bit overpriced, but worth it. Everything we ordered was delicious! Not a single complaint. I definitely would be back again.

This was my second trip to Indy for GenCon, and our favorite place to stop there is the Mikado, for an amazing sushi lunch. Their menu is large, and while slightly pricey (hey, it's downtown Indy), it's so good and worth the wait if they are busy. For a vegetarian like me, it's a dream. I enjoyed (on our 2... More

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. The maître d handled the situation well and utilised the lounge and waiting spaces to ensure everyone got seated in a prompt manner. The... More

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
