Good Food, Decent Value, Lots of Choices

Lots and lots of options - this is a really good buffet. Plenty of Sushi and Sashimi choices - our only challenge was the limited English most of the Sashimi preparers spoke. :-) Go hungry, leave happy!

They have an excellent variety of salads, sushi, hot dishes, and desserts at very reasonable prices. The staff was very nice and the restaurant was clean. Plenty of seating ideal for big groups.

When we drove up there was a long line and most people were Asian. I knew we were in the right place. The sushi selection on the buffet was the largest and best I have ever seen and it was good sushi not the yucky, inexpensive kind at most buffets. There were also sashimi selections. There was plenty of hot... More

This is my go-to Asian buffet in the Seattle-Tacoma area. Sushi is generally fresh, and a lot of the regular food is made well. Some items like the General Tso's Chicken and Coconut Chicken taste way too sugary to me. Often I'll just get the sushi when I'm here.

Mika is the same owner as Mitzuki in Southcenter. Mika's hot food selection is better than Mitzuki, but their sushi selection is just ok, not like Mitzuki. Mika also has stir fry station and noodle station, but the soup base if full of MSG. Everytime we finish eating soup noodle, we all get very thirsty.

This is a buffet. Many choices from fresh fruits through Ice-cream. It is the only Japanese/Chinese restaurants that I have been in where the clientele has been almost all Asian. Offerings included small mackerel - lots of work but if you like mackerel (an oily fish) the work to debone it makes it worth it (I had 3), Fried Butterfly... More

I am normally reluctant to go to a buffet because the food is usually not very good. The hot items are not hot, and they are often a little on the old and tired side. Mika Japanese Buffet is the exception. Most of the offerings are very good, and some are excellent. Only a few of the approximately twenty items... More
