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.

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!

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

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. :)

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.

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.

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!

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.
