We wanted something close to Lucas Oil Stadium that wasn't crowded during the DCI Championships and this was it. I was a little thrown by the prices, and I would have to say that was still my one complaint. Our server was attentive and took care of us, and everyone was satisfied with the food quality. Not a bad place... More

We were visiting Indianapolis and we're looking for something to eat kinda late and we saw sushi and thought "oh, that would work". We went in and right away noted it was hot inside like the AC was broken. After a few minutes in the heat we decided to take our sushi back to our hotel and unfortunately the sushi... More

The sushi was good, but it came out slow and at different times. It was ninety degrees out and I felt like they were trying to save money on utilities as it was not terribly cool in the restaurant. The hostess whispers the name of the party and waits about two seconds before calling the next name on the list.... More

We're just two midwestern guys who don't have much experience with "authentic" sushi, but we certainly eat it a lot! Mikado was a wonderful experience - the staff was very friendly and our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. She was on top of refills and checking in with us (one of our rolls took a little longer to get... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Was walking distance from our hotel. We ordered the Sukiyaki that you cook yourself at table. The waitress did most of the cooking for us though. It was very tasty. We also ordered white rice and gyoza. We really enjoyed the green tea ice cream for dessert. Pricey but good. Clean restaurant with beautiful decor. Recommend.

Worst Japanese I've ever been to. Water was undrinkable. I never leave bad reviews but this place should be avoided

Thought we'd try something different and we were glad we did. Started out with Wasabi Shumai Dumplings steamed pork filled, Mikado Special, Tuna Tataki roll, and Sumo roll. Favorite was Pork filled dumpling. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, great place to people watch. Would recommend.

Close to downtown and excellent selections. We always have an assortment of sushi as an appetizer. Always excellent! Authentic Japanese food and interesting dining areas. Nice outdoor dining by the street, but under an awning and pleasant area facing Georgia street. I recommend.

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!

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 always good... the... More
