I live in DE but travel all over the USA. Since 1990, I have become a lover of good sushi. I have been to 50 states and make it a goal to try Sushi wherever I go. No matter where I eat sushi, none comes close to the experience I have in my own backyard, Mikimotos. My wife and I... More

This is a regular dinner spot for myself and coworkers when working out of our local Delaware office. From the outside walking in, the restaurant is surprisingly hip and edgy in decor and menu. Very appealing! The sushi is great...from the Crazy Tuna roll to the Hairy Mexican to the Spider, all well done and nicely presented. I would stick... More

After working in downtown Wilmington for 8 years, I have no other go to sushi restaurants since Mikimotos is close by and can always be counted on for an enjoyable lunch and late night meal for the lawyers and bankers who end up working late. Choices for everyone, including plenty of non-sushi options and surprisingly good salads. While many local... More

A few of my friends and I heard there was an awesome happy hour so we decided to give it a try. We get there and were informed that we have to sit at the bar for happy hour but not all of us are 21. We were pretty bummed but decided to stay. We told our server and he... More

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
