There is no question that the southside Mikado is the best location among all their locations in Edmonton. They have the best servers and they have the most experienced kitchen staff. I have been disappointed 100% of the time at the west end location, and their downtown location, while getting better lately again, still has good days and bad days. The south side is consistently enjoyable, and offers up the best dining experience for Japanese food in Edmonton. The tempura is always crispy, light, and delicious. Never greasy. The raw fish is always fresh and expertly cooked and prepared. The cooked dishes are cooked with care and pride in their presentation. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

Mikado is always good food and good service but I do find the Southside location better for service than the West End location. Probably the most authentic Japanese food in Edmonton.

It was a good supper with the family overall. We are certain our server was new as he was a little shy and quite slow.
My wife found a price tag in her food (for the second time this year) so they gave her a new meal to go.
Otherwise it was good. Got a private room for our family as well. Always a good place to go other than a couple abnormalities.

I like Mikado, but yesterday our server was so lude.
Throw a hot water towel on a table and when she brought me the food, she told me to take if from the height of my face.

Service was slow. Ordered some appies and no one came to see us for 30 mins. Food was mediocre at best. Definitely not coming back. Ordered the boat which was low quality in freshness and quantity.

This is one of our favourite restaurants however on this occasion the service was very poor. We waited for over 15 minutes for a server to appear and had to finally ask the host for someone to come to our table. The host then took our order. The server brought our drinks and food and was never seen again. Once again we had to ask the host for the bill after waiting for again, over 15 minutes. Really disappointing.

Brought my Dad who was visiting from Ontario. He loved it!
Taking my Dad out for dinner is risky because he is a very good cook and tends to be very honest about what he likes and doesn’t like. He loved everything.
We are always happy with the food and service so I was very pleased.

The tempura shrimp roll was cold and not as crispy as it normally is... as if the tempura was not freshly cooked.
I was a bit disappointed.
