I have been eating lunch or dinner at Mikado for almost 18 years, their foods are tasty and service is good. The price is affordable too.

(Arch. Reyes branch) It was near closing time so ambiance was not that good already. Limited choices, buffet table not clean, and the food looked sad.... Service was attentive though. The place needs renovation.

They don't open the evening buffet till 6 PM but it was good. Parking area only has enough room for a few cars but the food was very good. I'm leary eating raw fish in Cebu City but Mikados has not failed me yet. They seem to take all cleanliness precautions.

Two things I love about this place, It’s Sushi and Sashimi all over, and it’s a buffet. Located just 5 minutes away from 2 of the biggest malls in Cebu, you can always enjoy a lunch there and back to your shopping itinerary in no time at all. For price of PHP350 (USD8.00), it’s an all-you-can-eat lunch at the Sushi/Sashimi... More

We were recently in Cebu to visit my wife's family. On the last day, one of her girlfriend's took us out to Mikado for the first time. I was stunned. The lunch buffet was in the vicinity of $10 US and had some of the best food I have ever eaten...and unlimited quantities of it. My first thought and still... More
