Before Covid we came regularly. Recently we had a take-out and ate in the nearby park (no tables outside or inside dining at the moment).My Japanese husband approves of the food, though most of the staff are not Japanese. I love the sweet potato tempura...and tofu teriyaki. The staff are great. Excellent value. We will continue to visit.More

We were searching for an authentic Japanese sushi restaurant that had good options for vegans. Thankfully we found Mikaku because it was great. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was amazing. Every roll felt perfect. We especially loved the Shiitake Avocado Roll...and the Natto Roll. The prices were really good too. The space felt cozy, and we enjoyed sitting by the window. It definitely felt authentic. We would return.More

Good 🍣 for a good price. I'm surprised that this place doesn't have more reviews. Nice place to eat with friendly staff.

If you are in Soho try this fabulous little Japanese sushi bar. The food is amazing and the sushi/sashimi is made to order by the sushi chefs. Great value for money.... it’s not expensive but it’s really fresh and beautifully made.

Excellent sushi selection. Went over lunch and wasn't busy at all. Have actual meal entrees as well.

During a business trip I was staying in Kenmare street where the restaurant is located. I went to this place three times as it was really good value for money. The udon noodle soup was really yummy and the service was good as well. Totally...recommendable.More

I was looking for a decent sushi place within walking distance of my hotel in Chinatown in NYC. I checked out Mikaku reviews and their menu, which is extensive and includes a wide variety of Japanese food, and decided to take a chance. The restaurant...is very small, almost cozy and the service was very friendly if not efficient. Food, once ordered, came out quickly. To be fair, I only had sushi and sashimi. None of the cooked dishes which constituted a majority of the menu, clearly designed for a large take out clientele. First and foremost, the fish was fresh. No doubt! The sushi was well prepared which meant not only was the fish fresh but the rice well prepared; the right consistency, seasoning and temperature. I had two appetizers: fluke usuzukuri and mixed sunomono as well as some oshinko (Japanese pickle selection) on the side. The usuzukuri and sunomono were identically dressed. Both lacked subtly, finesse and delicacy For example, usuzukuri consists of paper thin slices of fish usually arranged on a plate in a fan like shape and dressed with a citrus (yuzu) ponzu sauce. The usuzukuri at Mikaku was slices of fluke (good) loosely draped over chunks of cucumber with some nondescript pretty tasteless sauce (the same with the sunomono). To me, that was a waste of really good fish. Nonetheless, I think, if you order carefully you can have a decent meal at a pretty reasonable price.More

Friendly and good sushi. Has restroom. Very reasonable prices. Small dinning area so big crowds may want to pick up order.
