This place is reasonably authentic although by necessity somewhat adapted to American tastes. We visited for lunch and found the prices to be very attractive. The location is very convenient off the highway just outside of Carlsbad town center. The service was quite efficient. I chose the baked lobster roll which came with a very tasty sauce. It was a very good choice as I thoroughly enjoyed it. My colleague, however, ordered a mixed sushi plate and was not as enthralled with his choice. He did not like the tuna or the whitefish particularly well. We had to conclude that it was a place that can be hit or miss.

In a shopping center off the Carlsbad main drag, we go there several times each year.
The servers are excellent, but not intrusive, and the food is always good and plentiful.
I love the tempura and my wife is a ginger chicken and teriyaki fan.
We don't eat sushi, but the fact that the seats there are always full must mean it's pretty good.

We had lunch at Mikko's and it was just okay. The service was a bit on the slow side and it took a long time to get our lunches served. The server never did stop by to see how things were or if we needed anything. The portions were huge and neither of us could finish our servings of the Seafood Yakisobe (stirred fried noodles with shrimp, scallop and fish cake). There were plenty of tasty noodles, but the shrimp and scallops were the smallest we've ever seen. I never was able to identify the fish cake, but I guess it was there. They do have a nice long sushi bar and the few patrons there did seem to be enjoying their sushi. They also have tables and booths. All in all it was just a so-so luncheon experience.

We 've been visiting this area for 9 years, and we always say we can't wait to get back to Mikko's! We always have great service, good food, and even when we take guests that are not suhi lovers, they rave about the teriyaki salmon and chicken. The sushi chefs are always friendly, and we think the value is great. Not a fancy place, but consistent and very good.

Decent little sushi bar, but this former-Sambo's (or whatever other coffee shop it was) lacks enough atmosphere and food quality to rate these prices. If you're driving down I-5, are pressed for time, are jonsing for off-ramp handy sushi, and aren't too demanding, go ahead on. Otherwise, you can do better than this.
