“Just another horrible restaurant in Auburn”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

It is no way a Japanese restaurant :( :( :( The girl in the front is rude and stupid. I have been to better Hibachi places. And this place is damn expensive. Only because it is Auburn, they are still in business. I did not try Sushi though. And do not even want to try. I will definitely never go back (not even someone pays me to eat there).
I do not want to sound offensive, but people who like this place must have absolutely no clue of Japanese cuisine. And that is probably a blessing in disguise. The chef could not even make a stir fry properly! However, this is a great place for people who love to be entertained by knife tricks or people who are conscious about decor or ambiance. It is probably one of my worst restaurant experiences.

“Mikata's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This is one of our favorite places to go. We usually get the meal for two and I usually bring home left overs. The food is plentiful, good, hot, the cooks are entertaining and seem to love children. This is a great place to go for a special event.

“average Japanese restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

I went to this restaurant due to the advertising of Auburn-Opelika tourism as one of the best Japanese restaurant in town. the service was OK (do not ask much of student waitress), the food tasted exactly the same (at least what my wife and I took) and the show is the same show you can find in any Japanese restaurant. the only difference, it is pricier.

My favorite place, always visit it for my birthday. Best fried rice. The salad dressing is divine on the rice too. Just try it!

“Typical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012 via mobile

Nothing too special, but nice that Auburn has a Japanese steakhouse. Auburn has a lot of better nice places to eat, but of you're craving Japanese, this will do.
