"Where do you want to eat?" My friends and family would ask. "Mikasa!!" I would ALWAYS reply. Sushi is my go-to food and Mikasa is my go-to place for sushi! Never have I been disappointed by the food. The employees are great as well. I've cheated on Mikasa before but never will I do it again. No other place compares... More

I spent the night in the area and wanted something unique, so I stopped here. The food was very tasty, but the service was very slow.

Nice small restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. The presentation on the sushi rolls etc was really nice. friendly staff. Reasonably priced for the type of food. We had 4 different rolls, unagi, etc... and all was good. We were there early for dinner but by 6 the place was packed and you could tell 90% were locals. I'd... More

First time at this great restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised that the food looked good and tasted great! The Sole was delicious, and the spicy tuna roll rocked. Nice friendly service. Mikasa, tu kasa!

This place is just amazing!!! A must try if you are in the area, and you are a sushi lover. You will not be disappointed. The volcano, the Lathrop Roll and the Godzilla Roll are amazing just to name a few.

This was clearly the best sushi we ever had. The shrimp tempura was great as well. They get very busy so reservations for dinner is suggested. We were there for lunch and got the last table.

The rolls at this place are to die for. The volcano roll is my favorite. The bento boxes are also very good. This restaurant is always packed at lunch time so get there early especially if you want a booth. Mikasa is very clean and tastefully decorated. The service is top notch. It is a tiny bit pricey but the... More

How this place ever got a score of 4.5 is beyond me. I had a bento box so had a variety of food. Salmon is farm raised and you would expect sushi quality salmon to be wild; tempura was heavy and greasy, tuna sushi was dry as bread, miso soup was tasteless, most of the rolls have cooked ingredients not...
