Service - acceptable. We went there for the advertised special, teppanyaki. Lunch - forget it. As a second best, I chose a bento box. The miso soup, the seaweed as chewy. The meal itself, I was not impressed. My chicken had way too much grease and almost no teriyaki taste. Their house salad dressing was uninteresting served in copious amounts.... More

We live in Asheville and this has been a favorite restaurant of ours for years. The owners and staff are always friendly and more than accommodating. Our food is consistently good with my favorite being the tofu vegetables. I also enjoy their wonderful sushi. We always enjoy the quiet, peaceful atmosphere. This is the best Japanese restaurant in town!

This restaurant used to be a gem, but unfortunately my last 2 experiences have been less than optimal. Both times I wondered if the restaurant was even open because we were practically the only ones in the restaurant. The food was your standard Hibachi menu. The chefs were not very personable, but we were not really expecting them to go... More

Aioki the sushi chef is amazing and well-versed in his talents and treats his customers amazingly well. The sushi is of superb, amazing quality (especially the fatty tuna!!!). Everything that is prepared is phenomenal and Aioki takes great pride in his work. It's the best sushi in Asheville, and yes, the interior decor is not the most updated but I'm... More

My hubby and I visited for lunch after Christmas shopping. We arrived to find out that they had just closed the hibachi grill, so we had to settle for a booth. We ordered the hibachi chicken and shrimp from the kitchen. The portion did not justify the price of the meal at all. There was very little chicken and the... More

Have had hibachi dinners numerous times and are always excellent. Went for sushi and decided to have crab Rangoon for appetizer. OMG awesome! So much filling that it almost needed knife and fork to eat it.

Sushi was fresh and excellent! Don't let the outward appearance keep you from going. We almost didn't go in, but so glad we did!

I was a little disappointed with Mikado. The food was okay, the miso soup was tasty. I would give it one less star but our waiter was excellent.

We stopped here for an early dinner before heading home. We were not sure we could have a table where the food is cooked in front of you because there were only the two of us. That didn't matter. We were seated and immediately were waited on. Our Chef, Dave, was superb! What a meal. The food was seasoned and... More
