I'm not a big fan of raw fish, but the baked specialty rolls here are wonderful eating. I recommend either the Mountain Roll or Lion King Roll for great combinations of flavors. The service is excellent and prices are very reasonable. I understand the sashimi and raw sushi items are fresh and nicely-prepared, but I drove 150 miles mostly to... More

Lunch Box Special was a hit! A little bit of everything for a whole lotta appetite was a perfect Santa Maria stop-over on way to SoCal. Highly recommend!

We ordered a sashimi combo, and a couple of rolls. The fish was very fresh, and everything was delicious. The chef was very fast too!

We've revisited Mikado several times. This is our favorite spot for sushi but we didn't love the regular menu dishes. Cold green tea, bleh soup, okay everything else. We'll keep going here time and time again but will limit our trips to sushi dining only. Great place!

Favorite place for sushi! The sushi chef was friendly and helpful. Ate the Super Dragon roll, Playboy roll and Tiger roll. We'll go there many more times I'm sure.

My hubby and I each had the sesame chicken lunch special. The miso soup and salad were a bit bland and my husband was still hungry after finishing his meal. However, the California Rolls were very good and fresh! We would return for the sushi.
