“Don't go for the sushi”

We did not sit at the hibachi tables, but opted for the sushi. If you enjoy mayo on sushi this place may be for you. The nigiri presentation was poor, instead of a bed of rice with a piece of sashimi it was a ball of rice with a piece of fish thrown over the top. Every sushi roll we ordered seemed to be a california roll with something different on top. Even rolls that were supposed to be something more inside were still just california rolls. I've had better sushi from Juliano Tokyo(downtown) and Fuji(S College). Overall the sushi was very dissapointing, especially with the mayo in all the sauces. Take a look at the menu online, the special sauce and spicy sauce are mayo based, nasty. Service was good and again we did not experience the hibachi grill. I am only speaking of the sushi bar. We will probably never go back to try the hibachi.

We really enjoy going to Mikata. Our young son loves the entertainment the enthusiastic chefs provide and I personally believe the Sushi prepared here is probably the best anywhere in the area. The chef who prepares it is a elderly Japanese gentlemen who you can tell definitely takes pride in his craft and has had extensive training in delivering top quality prepared cuisine.

In addition to your entree you will also recieve a savory soup, house salad, additional grilled vegtables, and ice cream dessert should you desire. You also may find yourselves instantly wrapped in pleasant conversation with other nice patrons seated beside you at the large, open Hibatchi tables.

We definitely feel that Mikata is Auburn's #1 choice for delicious Japanese-style Steak, Seafood, and Sushi. I wouldn't imagine it being better or giving anywhere else a try. Mikata has just won our hearts.
