Hello, we arrived to this place as we were hungry and with cold, as we had just finished walking in the Brooklyn area. The food and the service were great, very friendly. Prices are very much acceptable when compared to other places for a small...family group (4). The waitress was very kind and all the staff were japanese as expected.More

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

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.

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.

The restaurant is very small. Maybe 25 seats. I went at a lunchtime and got the last table. Lots of locals were warmly greeted by the staff. I had sushi as a starter and Katsu don for my main. The Katsu don was delicious, exactly...how I like it. The sushi was also tasty and fresh. This is a great little find and I'll definitely return.More

Went shopping for the day down Broadway and came across this hidden gem by accident when looking for a little place for lunch. We are all Sushi lovers so were very pleased. A small place, not many tables and we did have to wait 15...minutes before we cold eat do decided to pop over to the bar opposite for a drink. It was definitely worth the wait. I ordered a Sushi & Sashimi special which came with the chefs selection of 8 pieces of Sushi and 8 pieces of Sashimi, miso soup and Salad. The Sashimi melted in my mouth. It was very reasonably priced. Thinking of going again before we leave NYC.More

We wound up at Mikaku for lunch because it is across the street from our daughter's college dorm. In fact, we can see it from her 6th floor window. Mikaku is a tiny restaurant with virtually no ambience and tables that are very close together....Staff was not particularly friendly. They have the usual luncheon special of soup, salad, and either two or three rolls. The rolls themselves were very small and in no way remarkable. There was nothing about Mikaku that would particularly make us want to go back for another lunch.More
