Great place, great hot plates, okay sushi – Went to lunch here today. the service was impecabble from the greeting to the server to the good bye. Lovely atmosphere and the gyoza were divine! The plating of the entrees and sushi are beautiful. My only small complaint is that the beautifully presented sushi rolls are simply too big to eat properly. a piece of sushi roll should be a one bite gig. Taking these in as one bite is just too much. it's too difficult to savor the delicious flavors of all the components that make up such a delicious sounding roll.

Best Place Ever!! – This is such a fun place if you are looking for a night out with your friends! Our favorite servers keep us coming back, and our weekly visits are always a great time! Monday and Tuesday nights are half-price rolls, and Thursday is $5.00 sake night! Ever since this restaurant is under new management, it just keeps getting better! We love Cottonwood Mikado's atmosphere and the friendly and efficient staff! The sushi is so fresh and is the best in town. Its our favorite!!

Good sushi - half price menu – I went on 5/21/09 and experienced friendly staff, interesting architecture/decor and good sushi. We ordered a few items off of the half price sushi menu (available after 8 PM, I think) and enjoyed all of it. The citrus prawns were fantastic!

N aked fish is lacking food quality – The service was great and attentive. We went for a birthday and sat down in the tatami room. It was fun drinking sake and chatting.

I was a bit disappointed to find out it was no longer Mikado or run by Mikado.

The food was not as good as it once was. My Chicken Yakisoba had cilantro in it. A lot of it. I didn't know Japanese food had cilantro in it.

This restaurant is no longer a Mikado Restauant – There is a new restauant located in the Mikado. It is called N aked Fish Japanese Bistro. I haven't tried it yet. But, I can't wait!

Bad service...Not worth your time and money. – ....If you're thinking about wasting gas to drive all the way downtown for this lousy place....well... please.... don't! First and far most, the service is the worst. For example, the servers will talk back to you and if you plan to make a complaint to the manager, they won't even give a dam. Plus... the workers don't do their job because they're to busy hanging out in the back texting and gossiping. Secondly, the wait for everything is forever (food, drinks, refills, etc)... For example, it took nearly an hour before the food was brought to my table (Note to readers: this was a tuesday night. I repeat... TUESDAY for gosh sake!) like seriously? I should have threw a plate at my servers head.... And finally, the food was not fresh nor was the taste that great. You can most definitely find better sushi places around Utah that doesn't taste like plastic (exaggeration). Aha.... But hey, if you have plenty of time on your hands and yearning to eat plastic food then I would reccommend this lousy place. =]

Great Atmosphere and Great Sushi – This was a great find. It's tucked away n the avenues of of Salt Lake, and is a great place for an adventuresome meal. The first thing that I liked was the Japanese style seating, with the futons and low tables. It made for a great atmosphere. The tempura was the best I"ve ever had, and the sushi rolls were incredible. A great find, and great for dates!

Yummy! – I love the atmosphere here. I do not know what people are talking about with the mean service. Our service was awesome, funny, friendly... It was a great experience. And they knew about each roll and the other dishes. For those who complain about parking, it is downtown, I am not sure what they are expecting.

It is an amazing dining experience, but do expect it to be a little pricier than the norm, but nothing over the top. The rolls are unique. And, my favorite appetizer is the asian fries. They are outstanding!!! I recommend getting your own order though and not sharing... they are just too good.

You call this food?! You mean dog food?!

-Bad Parking

-Long waits in line

-half hour before any server came by to ask for drinks

-An hour before DRINKS are brought to the table with NO MENU!

-2 hours before food is served

-LAZY server messes my order, complainer, and never came by to check on us or refilled our drinks (I think my server was name Jen. It was some girl who needed to learn some manners)

-Sushi Chef layout of sushi on our plate was a big FLOP (Seriously?)

-Manager did not do anything about the problem

The location and environment was OKAY (nothing to do with the people that works there), but you can definitely find somewhere else with better environment, servers and customer service.


This place was so bad that I had to take my time and make an account on citysearch just to tell everyone how bad it is! Trust me..... "Sushi's not worth it's price and bad customer service is not worth your money!!!!!!!"

TERRIBLE SERVICE, WORST FOOD, AND RUDE SERVERS – Mikado gives the WORST SERVICE I've ever had in my life. Lazy service and VERY RUDE servers. They don't care about customer service at all! For example, the dumb waitress did not wrote down my order and it turns out that she messes up my order afterwards. Not only that, she argued with me and said very rude things like "well... I can take that off your order, but it only costs like 15 bucks so..." Also, it took them an hour to get my group seated, half hour to get our drinks, and a full "never ending story" before our food was brought to the table. [Note: It was a slow wednesday night when I went. Can they not handle that?] In conclusion, Mikado gives bad customer service, lazy rude uneducated servers, and the food was not that great at all.
