LOVE the atmosphere... food leaves a bit to be desired. Great drinks and location

This is a great go-to when we are taking my dad out for dinner since it is hard for him to hear with lots of background noise. It is a nice quiet place and they have all sizes of private rooms for extra quiet and privacy. Great selection of drinks including some high end Scotch's. Sushi is... read more

What a gem in the heart of the city. This is not a midwest version of a Japanese restaurant. Must haves: seaweed salad and the special roll (changes depending on what they have and what Connie wants to make). Attentive service and knowledgeable. You will not be disappointed!

We were just here with a large dinner group. They put us in a separate room and let us eat a ton. Food was great; wine was good. The bottle of vodka was a crazy thing to order... Seriously great night had by all. I am labeling it excellent, but it was expensive. That said it was a great dinner.

The restaurant have private rooms for large groups. Unfortunately, I arrived with a big group already in the private room. Have already sat further away but it was still very noisy. Not a typical Japanese restaurant ambience. Ordered the bento box that comes with a miso soup, salad, beef roll, shrimp shumai, tonkatsu, salmon and teriyaki chicken. The bento box... More

This Japanese restaurant is run by a Taiwanese. They serve very good Japanese food. I book a room to gather fro around 20 pax , buffet style ,for a Malaysian group during our June convention. The food that they served are more than we can eat, may be we are not a big eater, and the price is reasonable

Excellent sushi! I stopped in after a meeting for a quick appetizer. I tried a new sushi that I haven't seen anywhere else, monkfish liver pate. All of the other sushi I ordered was very fresh.

I'll start with noting that we were there during GenCon. It was busy. There was a line. The wait was actually made tolerable by the fact that we got to sit inside the bar area. We had a lot of people packed in there, but the time went fast because we talked about the day's activities. We sat outside which... More

My husband and I were looking for a Japanese restaurant in downtown Indianapolis, then we came across with Mikado. Great location, very nice atmosphere and the waiter was awesome. Food a bit overpriced, but worth it. Everything we ordered was delicious! Not a single complaint. I definitely would be back again.
