Eaten there many times before. This time service was poor. Our bento boxes where cold and the beef chewy. One of our sushi roll was not the same as we had had on previous trips. The waiter was full of excuses ( “ sometime the beef is tough”)
Love going to Mikado. It's that type of place to go if you want your meal to be a little more special without being overly snooty. The food is wonderful and beautifully presented. The customer service is just as good. Highly recommend.
It's was another awesome dining experience. Thank you!
The food is delicious and filling and the service is quick and very friendly. Always a good night out.
The food was good but it was the service that made my experience a great one. When ordering the food I asked how the steak was cooked (I am 6 months pregnant and need it to be well done) and she looked at my belly, smiled and said well done. When receiving the bill, I noticed that she made a note on the tempura shrimp to make sure that they were well done as well. It seems like a small thing to do, but the fact that she went over and above to ensure the safety of myself and my unborn baby did not go unnoticed! So thank you very much, Winky!
We ordered eight items. The first two came, then 6 dishes came at the same time, only the soup was hot. Everything else was room temperature to cold. It leads us to believe they waited for everything to be ready and brought it all together. Very disappointing! The manager didn’t handle it well, he just kept repeating, it looks like you don’t like the quality of our food and we can’t meet your expectations! What the f*** Then we realized the quality of the food is actually going down because they are too busy! As we left there is a huge lineup of people waiting to be seated and 10 bags for Uber and deliveries. Very sad!
Taking covid precautions seriously which is nice to see. All very kind people and great service.
Most of my food came out cold. The server would just drop it off and not come back even after to ask how it was
Such wonderful service… The food is always good… Endless tea… They are definitely taking precautions and have the tables spaced appropriately with guards etc. My favourite for sushi on the southside.
The food always tastes good. The people besides our room were noisy. Maybe you should ask your guests before they come in to lower their voices when talking to each other. Thanks
Go to for my sister sushi dates. Always fresh!
One of our favourites in Edmonton. BBQ Squid, Hamachi Collar and lobster roll are our favourite dishes. One of the best sushi restaurants in the city.
Pot of green tea goes well with deep fried tofu and mixed tempura perfectly crunchy and light. For desert choose hot sake with nigiri. My favorites are bene sake, hotate, Toro, ika, chop chop, and ikura with uzura. :)
They gave us a table right away and did not wait too long.
They put us in a private room which was lovely. Our waitress was excellent, very friendly.
Very fast service, very tasty, and our server Kenny was excellent. He had great ha ha as we say. Our visit was for our Anniversary and we enjoyed it a lot. Thankyou.
Love mikados no matter which one we go. Went here for my birthday with my family since it was right by my brother's work. Our server Ken was very personable and professional and the food was outstanding as always.
We went to The Mikado because our grandson wanted sushi for his 18th birthday dinner. They placed us in a private room with a table. Would have been nice to be in one of the rooms where you sit on the floor. But on reflection, the table was a better idea being we had a 3 year old with us. The food was very tasty and well presented. We definitely would go back.
Service as always great; fast and with smile. Consistent good quality of fish and seafood.
Sushi is made with very fresh ingredients and the food is very good
Mikado is amazing! We love the food and the service is always friendly and fast. This is easily one of our favourite places to dine.
Wonderful presentation and the food matches the presentation.
Excellent food, great atmosphere and friendly staff.
Good food, great service. We even got a gift from the restaurant to celebrate my daughter's birthday.
Loved the new Bluefin Tuna menu. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing! Can really noticed their efforts/ protocols regarding the pandemic and they help make you feel like you're in a safe environment!
From being seated (we had a reservation) to being served by our lovely waitress (Kiko), and the food itself - our experience at Mikado's Southside was very enjoyable. Our food, as always, was fresh and served fast. Kiko was engaging and friendly. Mikado's is a family favourite.
Amazing!!!it was a great time and a great place! I enjoyed my time (:
Always a good experience when we dine at Mikado.
Food was good service is awesome this is our 2nd year celebrating our wedding anniversary in this location always great and exceptional
The service was really good. Shout-out to our server Ken. He was such an added bonus to an already wonderful meal out.
The food was fantastic. If they have the salmon tartare - get it! If you’re not sure what to have - get the deluxe bento box. You WILL leave with your belly full of wonderfully prepared and super-tasty food!
Service was great but just was Little under staff. But our server was doing a great job to serve us. Well done!
It was a great evening! The food and service was great!
Excellent service and food! The best Japanese restaurant in Edmonton!
The food was fantastic and the service was amazing...right from entering the front door throughout the entire meal. We can’t wait to return!
We arrived promptly and everything was great. Two young grandkids enjoyed the food as well.
Definitely a different experience than before Covid but always enjoyable and the food was great too.
We were sat in one of the booths which was nice as we can talk with minimal noise disturbance. They were very conscientious of the cleanliness and Covid situation. Food was absolutely delicious and they worked with my gluten free friend in concocting a meal for her. Can’t wait to go here again!
Service was excellent! I wish I could remember our server’s name, he was very professional and courteous. Overall very good. My family of four ordered a variety of lunch bento boxes. Some aspects were good (sashimi, tempura) but the grilled items had no char, and were drowning in sweet sauces. We felt very neutral about our experience, and if it weren’t for the great service, we would have felt negatively because the food was not worth the money.
Excellent evening with high standard in service and food quality
food was very fresh and tasty service was very good
