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

After a day of my wife and I hosting 12 children for our daughters 4th birthday party at our home, the last thing we wanted to do was cook. We both agreed to phone in an order at Mimi's in Simpsonville and take it easy. A man answered the phone and upon correcting myself on what I wanted to order,... More

We have eaten at Mimi's for years and enjoyed both the food and service. Recently, however, both have gone downhill. Food was mediocre (not prepared my Japanese chef), service was acceptable, table was dirty and broken. We had a party of 8 and the tip was automatically added for us. Why? The chef and waitress serve 8 - 10 people... More

It wasn't the most 'upscale' Japanese Steakhouse that I've ever been to, but my husband and I really enjoyed the meal. Our server and chef were both great and interacted with everyone at the table throughout the entire meal. The food was very good and you got plenty of it! In fact, I still have about two meals worth in... More
