“Mika Japanese Buffet = Amazing”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

we love this restaurant and their selections. The price is a little high when you first hear it, But it is totally worth it. There are 20 kinds of sushi, meats, udon noodle station, even some fried chicken and more traditional "american foods". The chocolate fountain is amazing and you just have to see it.

“not on Sundays”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Sun 9/2/12: Mika Japanese Buffet/Federal Way, Wa: Today, we came all the way down from the North. Our large group decided to celebrate two birthdays there; for the good selections that please most everyone. The fishes were fresh, the hot items were prepared well, desert couldn’t resist. However, Sunday’s specials for a higher price were a letdown; the steak was chewy, crabs were soft, oysters were stale, and clams were sandy. When we’re in the neighborhood, we’ll do the daily buffet but never again on Sunday, not worth the drive. 3 stars

“Good food Lots of Variety”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It was late and we were hungry. My wife had just flown clear across the country. We drove from SeaTac down pacific for about 8 miles and saw this new Japanese Buffet.....Well I was wondering what the difference was between Chinese buffet and Japanese buffet. Are you curious? Well the truth is zero, zip, zilch, nada. The food was good and hot and the steam tables were kept full even though it was nearly 10:00 pm (Closing time).There were some real good shrimp dishes and a nice sushi bar (w/sushimi) I was disapointed in the sushi that nearly every different style was loaded with fake crab. Also a chocolate fountain with a variety of things to dip in it. Ok so dinner was not cheap but the food was good and here is the kicker, there were no soy sauces available to the last few paying customers. I went and got one from an empty table. Soon afterward an employee came and took it away and did not return it. I then surveyed all the other patron tables an NO ONE had any soy sauce. I know its kinda petty but if you are spending $20. on dinner you should be able to keep your soy sauce till you are done eating "just sayin" So to sum it up I would definately go again but...... I will hide my soy sauce! Bon Apetite
