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

Sushi is one of my favorite things to eat. I am in Indianapolis on business and was craving Sushi. Mikado was a short walk from my hotel (Sheraton City Centre) so I thought I would give it a try. The Fire Roll was good, Spicy Tuna w/ Avocado, topped with fresh jalapeno and cilantro, nice and spicy which is to... More

My family and I were in search of Asian food for dinner in downtown Indianapolis while on vacation. All that was available were P.F. Chang's and Mikado Restaurant. Since P.F. Chang's was a chain, we opted to try Mikado, something local. I ordered the chicken teriyaki, which is a simple Japanese dish served in many restaurants. When my order arrived,... More

For someone that grow up on the coast and always loved seafood, I am often weary to try sushi in random places. I must say this place was an exception. I had the Seafood puff, and a roll that had fresh crab in a spicy mayo( forgot the name) but it was good! They had a WIDE section of wines... More

We enjoyed the sushi, followed by the eel with seasoned rice. We finished with a delicious Japanese ice cream dessert. Service was very attentive.

Our server was a cool cucumber - not warm - but, basically efficient. I was disappointed there was no hibachi - all tables - but, they did have a sushi bar. I ordered scallops to share w/ my son and his father ordered steak and lobster and also shared w/ my son - he ate well - but, it would... More
