“Great sushi - Don't be fooled by the location!”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Saw this place randomly while shopping at the nearby mall. My wife and I were not initially tempted however hunger got the better of us and we stopped for supper. We were both very impressed by the quality of the sushi here, the portion sizes, and the attention to detail.

We also enjoyed the atmosphere and would not hesitate to return.

“AUTHENTIC JAPANESE - EATING THERE SINCE 1980 -NON BETTER”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

The food and service have always been excellent. If you want jazzed up pseudo Japanese food don't go there. Very fresh fish and everything is made to order. Very nice people run the place. Very clean.

“Beware!!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Not Japanese! Bad fish, over priced, dumpy, and dishonest owner/staff. Worse experience in Ft Laurderdale.

“A fortunate random find”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

We just spent a week in Key West and are spending the night in Ft Lauderdale before our early morning flight home. We haven't found really good Japanese food in Charlotte NC (all steak houses, and none that offer more traditional Japanese dishes like Katsu or Negimaki) so when we found Mikado on Yelp with good reviews, we decided to give it a try.

We arrived shortly after 6:30pm, and found a few other diners already enjoying their meals. It is a small place, with a warm, homey feel. There are maybe 10 tables, and 5 or 6 seats at the sushi bar. We were seated immediately by the friendly but non intrusive waitress (owners wife).

We ordered our food and after a very short wait, our appetizer arrived. We shared a spicy tuna roll which was a perfect balance of fresh flavorful tuna and rice. The spice was enough to warm the mouth but not enough to make it unpleasant. This was absolutely one of the best rolls we've had since moving from NY to NC about 4 years ago.

Something else I've been missing since we moved is Ton Katsu - while it is a simple enough dish (fried pork cutlets served with a delicious Japanese BBQ-like sauce) it's not on any menu we've found in Charlotte. Mikado delivered! It was prepared perfectly.

My husband ordered the Mixed Tempora plate and was served a large dish of a variety of perfectly fried items - light and crispy and not in the least bit greasy.

We joked over dinner about coming back to Lauderdale just to get a fix of excellent Japanese food but I think we were both only *half* joking.
