We've loved the Mikado for decades, but the other night we got take out from there and ended up throwing most of it into the garbage. The sushi was dreadful: eel, mackerel, yellowtail, shrimp, tamago--virtually everything we ordered was awful. It was either old or actually spoiled. I don't know if they decided to dump the bad stuff on a... More

We took our daughter, who is a freshman at Wesleyan University, here for Family Weekend. We were seated immediately on a Saturday night around 6pm but the dining room filled up fast. My family are big sushi/sashimi fans but I'm more of a curry fan. They had very good sushi rolls and I had the shrimp tempura. The sushi rolls... More

A return visit to Mikado, our group of four enjoyed the Sushi and Sashimi boat, sautéed scallops, and Vegetable Pad Thai. The food was fabulous and the service was very pleasant. We were in a hurry to get to the theater on the Wesleyan campus for a student production of The Tempest... the check was ready early just as we... More

I like Mikado's location in a slightly subterranean spot off Main Street, where the setting is very chill and tranquil. Over the years I've always expected a good experience at Mikado, where they deliver fresh sushi in a comfortable setting. How my most recent visit, everything from the miso soup starter to my specialty roll was delicious and full of... More

Have always found the sushi to be delicious. We typically take out but this visit ate in for lunch. Pleasantly surprised by a remodeled restaurant which looks great and is a vast improvement over the old decor. Friendly wait staff and very reasonably priced lunch menu. Miso soup and sushi rolls both delicious. Have continuously come back for sushi, specialty... More

My daughter and husband LOVE sushi!!! They hardly ever get a chance to eat it because no one else wants it. Mikado offers items for those of us who do not like sushi. I had a great dish with scallops and noodles!! They have wonderful apps and desserts too! The setting is unique and fun to explore. Parking is the... More

Mikado has delivered the freshest, tastiest, best-prepared sushi and sashimi in Central Connecticut for many years--I don't think we have ever been disappointed there. It is a subterranean restaurant--down a flight of stairs into a windowless series of rooms--but the decor is appealing, and unless you suffer from significant claustrophobia you won't even realize you're in a basement. Service is... More

I would not consider this place authentic. It is a standard suburbian Japanese restaurant. The food is so-so, but will do when you have a craving for Japanese food.

I have bought Groupons for Mikado and have been very pleased with all of the food that my friends and I share. While the location is very small in Middletown the food was delicious. We had the yummy roll, crispy rock shrimp, chicken fried rice and noodles and it was all very good. We were both happy with our selections... More

If you enjoy traditional Japanese food, Mikado's is a great place to visit. The food is very good quality and the presentation and service are great. Very good variety on menu items.
