“Nice place to eat”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Had dinner at Mikaku at least twice as it was literally next door to my hotel. The place was quite busy every night. They do a special dinner deal for $18, the menu contains a soup, salad, rice, tempura, choice of meat and sushi. Food is very tasty and fresh and it is a bargain for the price above. Recommended.

“Very tasty and friendly”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Went here 3 nights in a row as it was close to my hotel. Sushi good and fish fresh. Good prices and great selection of rolls.

Size of sushi rolls varied each night but for the price, can't complain.

“Edamame understeamed, sushi ok”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

I had dinner at this restaurant this evening. The edamame I ordered was not steamed long enough. The two sushi rolls I ordered were ok.

“Cute place, ok sushi, nothing special from chef”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Went here for a nice dinner without the kids on recommendation from hotel staff. It was ok but we expected allot better for being so near fresh fish. We ordered the chef's choice dinner and it was not worth the price. Our 7 course meal for 2 people included: miso soup, small salad with nice ginger dressing, 1 choice of appetizer (we had gyoza and seaweed salad), a small oyster, 3 pieces of salmon sashimi, 4 pieces of sushi (salmon, tuna, white fish, and shrimp), a dragon roll, and small dessert. We both got identical plates besides the app. I was disappointed that the chef could have done anything and we didn't get anything special. We usually order the chef choice and get all kinds of great new stuff to try but not here. We won't be back.
