Best sushi I've ever had – My boyfriend and I eat here at least once a week, mainly because I can't get enough of their special roll called the Hawaiin roll which blends the California Roll with mango, kiwi and a sweet sauce on top. The fish cuts are fresh and pretty large and the service is outstanding. You will never see the bottom of your cup of green tea! If you are looking for a nice place for sushi that isn't overpriced, I highly recommend Miki!
Best Sushi – This restaurant changed ownership in 2004 and it has done nothing but improve since. The sushi is always the freshest available and the wait staff attentive. If you like uni there is simply none better. I've sampled probably about 1/2 the menu, and although I do have my favorites, there is simply nothing there that was disappointing. Prices were reasonable, quality outstanding, highly recommended overall when in Ann Arbor!
Excellent Quality and Value – Tasty sushi in a non-pretentious setting. We had more reasonably priced rolls and were completely content. Recommended: spicy tuna roll (twice as large as normal!) and the eel and avocado. When you see lots of Japanese people at a sushi joint, like we did tonight, you can expect it'll be good!
Authentic Japanese food hidden find features a friendly sushi bar. – In Short
Local sushi die-hards know this is the only place for divine, authentic Japanese cuisine. Home to a quiet atmosphere, Miki is tucked away from the more populated areas of downtown. Service is spread somewhat thin in the large dining room, but the sushi bar is plentiful and the chefs are friendly. Japanese cuisine includes popular dishes such as tempura and harder-to-find ones like Ochazuke selections (rice soup in broth or tea).
Best sushi in Michigan – Miki has the best sushi in Michigan. I've eaten at dozens of sushi places and this place knows how to make their sushi. However, the place definitely needs an upgrade as far as ambience goes. Many other sushi places are much trendier. Also, the service is inconsistent, but I still eat here at least twice a month.
Top marks for Calif.Rolls – The best california rolls in NorthAmerica! I have tried them from coast to coast and have found Miki has the best, sweet and subtle. Over all the sushi is top quality in flavor and texture, however at times, it does not stand up when it comes to construction. Be sure to try the ice cold plum wine.
Consistent Japanese in AA – Most reliable Japanese food in Ann Arbor. I've been all over town at the various Japanese restaurants, and I've settled on Miki. Over the years, they have remained the most consistent in quality. Favorites are: Nabeyaki Udon, Eel and Asparagus rolls, Spicy Tuna rolls, and California rolls. The tempura is pretty good too. A great place for lunch--avoid the weekend crowds.
Mediocre sushi – Maybe they should learn how to make a good sushi rice from a Japanese chef. I am from Japan and I know how the shushi rice should taste like - too much rice vinegar and not enough sugar. Also, its sushi was not rolled well and each piece would fall apart when you dip it in soy sauce. I would not go back to Miki again unless its free.
Not a great place for the weekend – Sushi was not fresh (most of them are still frozen and very thin sliced)
Kind, but not so attentive staffs...
