Mikimotos started out as my 'go to' happy hour spot! Then, it happened, a change in ownership! OMG! The place started to look dirty. The cleaning as not up to par, so I began and extra-happy hour affair with other restaurants‼ Even the waiting staff left to work in other restaurants! I would return every now and again; but it...

After living for 3 years in Wilmington and having heard so much about it I finally managed to go there. We shared spicy tuna & New Orleans sushi rolls and Edamame for starters. As entree I had the drunken general's chicken and it was absolutely perfect. I'm normally quite picky when it comes to Asian food but there was absolutely... More

The food was not bad, possibility above average. The restaurant must have had a issue with its AC and it felt like it was 85 degree in the lounge and then we moved to a table, which felt better, but still that was still well above 75 degree. This took away from the whole experience. You could tell the AC... More

Sushi rolls were bland and didn't taste fresh. Pad Thai not good at all, very salty with lack of flavor. Very suprised by the good reviews which led us here. No stars for the food, one star for friendly waitress and one star for nice decor.

This place is near my work so we go here often for happy hour. Their prices are a little steep so their bogo rolls for HH are amazing. Service can be a little dicey so I don't recommend them if you're time crunched. Otherwise cool spot to hang with friends!

Busy and loud. Tempura veggies and lobster were undercooked and greasy- the oil must not have been hot enough. California roll and crab Rangoon were ok. Would skip in the future

Sushi was excellent . I had the fire cracker and the Miami head but everything everyone else ordered looked very good too . Last star was due to awkward service and the beer selection could stand to be better

Sushi here is really good. I love the Hairy Mexican along with a Hello Kitty martini. It's a great place to meet up for happy hour or just an outing with friends or family

Have eaten here occasionally, usually sushi for lunch, which is pretty good. Three of us went for dinner tonight and it was not very good. The drunken chicken had good flavor and texture with good veges on the side, but the coating was pretty thick and got gummy. The Pad Thai was fair, but a little heavy on the Thai... More

I think it was a bad decision to go there for a vegetarian. Don't ever go to a Japanese restaurant if you a re a vegetarian.
