The past few times that the family has gone to Mimi's we just so-so. We decided to give it one more try for my daughter's birthday because she absolutely loves the place. The wait was much longer than we were used to (~35min) because we showed up at 6:30pm on Friday, but it was worth it. There were a few... More

I work right around the corner and everyone was craving hibachi today. I volunteered to be the pickup girl. They took so long to prepare our order (about 40 minutes or so). A long haired guy came out to see if I would like a drink since it was taking so long. It was obvious he was one of the... More

I used to love this place, but that was years ago. It has gone so far downhill that I've refuse to go back over the last few years. I told mimi herself that the steak was terrible and that nobody at our table could eat it and all we got was "sorry". Cost $60 just for my family not including... More

Horrible! We tried this place 4 months ago and were not pleased but contributed it to a new chef so we tried again. Mistake. It was no better. 1 hour wait at a table for the chef to show up. He spent more time trying to entertain than cooking. Who cares that you can spin your spatula. Just cook my... More

The place has really gone down hill. The server was very friendly however the sashimi was marginal at best. Unagi served cold and when I mentioned to the sushi chef. Yeah, I can heat that up for you. Pieces cut small and as with a dull knife. I was really surprised. Sorry, won't be back. Go to Irashai. Very consistent

This is not a true Japanese restaurant. The decor, atmosphere, cleanliness and level of service do not reflect the traditional neat image of Japan and its people. In fact, all the crew is from Micronesia (nothing wrong with that, but don't call it "steakhouse of Japan": "Steakhouse of Saipan" would be more accurate). The hibachi chef and servers perform a...

The three of us had to wait for a very long time at our table to be served and we ended up late for our movie showing! We had to get the food to go and I was not happy. :( The worst is that they said my girls could not share a proportion and that is way too much... More
