Mikado has delivered the freshest, tastiest, best-prepared sushi and sashimi in Central Connecticut for many years--I don't think we have ever been disappointed there. It is a subterranean restaurant--down a flight of stairs into a windowless series of rooms--but the decor is appealing, and unless you suffer from significant claustrophobia you won't even realize you're in a basement. Service is... More

I would not consider this place authentic. It is a standard suburbian Japanese restaurant. The food is so-so, but will do when you have a craving for Japanese food.

I have bought Groupons for Mikado and have been very pleased with all of the food that my friends and I share. While the location is very small in Middletown the food was delicious. We had the yummy roll, crispy rock shrimp, chicken fried rice and noodles and it was all very good. We were both happy with our selections... More

If you enjoy traditional Japanese food, Mikado's is a great place to visit. The food is very good quality and the presentation and service are great. Very good variety on menu items.

We've regularly gone to Mikado once a week for quite some time. The food had been excellent, and service satisfactory. The food is the reason we were willing to frequent the restaurant. The last several times we've gone, the quality of food has drastically declined, we spoke witht the manager last week regarding our dissatisfaction, the salmon was overcooked, the... More

We haven't been to Mikados for a while and were pleasantly surprised by their updates, to both the dining room and the menu. I had the scallop dinner. My husband had sushi - the sweetheart roll. The food was fresh and beautifully presented, like works of art. The only criticism was that we felt a bit rushed. The waitress was... More

Staff was very fast and attentive but almost all of them seemed to be in bad moods. The sushi came out and it was a very small portion for a not so small price. He ingredients seemed old and dry. Overall not a great experience.

Really enjoyed the tuna pizza and the salmon with crab appetizers. Great entries.. Enjoyed shrimp pad-Thai, salmon teriyaki, California rolls, salmon and tuna sushi.. The scorpion bowl as a beverage was awesome.
