I was a little disappointed with Mikado. The food was okay, the miso soup was tasty. I would give it one less star but our waiter was excellent.

We stopped here for an early dinner before heading home. We were not sure we could have a table where the food is cooked in front of you because there were only the two of us. That didn't matter. We were seated and immediately were waited on. Our Chef, Dave, was superb! What a meal. The food was seasoned and... More

This was a great restaurant. Our chef, Kevin prepared our food as we all sat around the hibachi. He was not only an excellent chef but also a great entertainer. We had 3 children who thoroughly enjoyed his humor & the food. Food portions are very generous & there is enough for another meal to take home. We will definitely... More

be careful if you have allergies as the cooks mix the food on the same grill with all of the other food and seasonings - totally ignoring the fact that food allegories were a concern

My husband and I love eating here. The food is always hot and fresh and served with a smile. We even tried the sushi! Sorry that I can't really contribute much regarding the sushi because we are newbies to it, but the staff went out of their way to explain the different types and tell us what we should try... More

Having had Hibachi grill food in native Japan, Malaysia and the UK, this restaurant was a poor imitation. If the chef had worn a clean jacket it may have improved the experience, unfortunately most of the food tasted of the burnt sauces because he only used the hotest part of the plate. As for entertainment we had a few seconds... More

This is our family's favorite place to eat. The staff is supper friendly and we love the suchi chef. We travel from another county just to eat there. It is a family tradition to eat there on our birthdays. No doubt, the best suchi in Asheville.

Had our daughters 18th birthday and a party of 12. Drinks rarely refilled. Hibachi chef acted like we were putting him out when we asked for sauces. He actually left the grill and went to get jugs of sauce. Several in party ordered sesame chicken, chef said " we're out of sesame seeds" we requested no egg in the rice...he... More
