“Loved this place”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We were recently in Cebu to visit my wife's family. On the last day, one of her girlfriend's took us out to Mikado for the first time. I was stunned. The lunch buffet was in the vicinity of $10 US and had some of the best food I have ever eaten...and unlimited quantities of it. My first thought and still my main thought was "How do I get these guys to open a restaurant here in the states."

Now I am sitting here hungering for a restaurant on the other side of the world. It's a small world, but not small enough. The next time we visit there, this will be the first restaurant we got to!

Mikado Japanese Restaurant's Japanese buffet is so enticing... Restaurant open for lunch and dinner.

“same food for the last 3 years or so”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Mikado used to be one of the top japanese restaurant in cebu. but now, no more.

for the last few years or so, they offer totally 100% same food all the time. back then, ambience were still clean. but presently, its no longer as clean as it used to be. several of their reliable waiters had already resigned too.

the location is no longer as festive as before (where Sunburst fried chicken and dessert factory were still renting behind). because mikado owns the building themselves.

its not really pricey though... price is right at about 10USD for shrimp all you can, that's not bad after all.

“Perfect Japanese”

The place is pricey but its worth it. The food taste amazing and the place is okay. The atmosphere is great when I visited the place, the service is nothing special but okay compare to other Japanese restaurant. Highly recommended!
