I ate here during the christmas break and it was good. My mother and I sat near the bar and we ordered the hairy mexican roll and another roll with seafood. I had the miso soup and she had the pho small bowl. The pho tasted and looked like roast beef broth with a slice of roast beef. It wasn't... More

Went here for the first time. I mever had sushi before and for it being my first time I was very impressed. Great food, service and quality. I would definitely go back. I had the sushi, sashimi combination platter.

Last week, I visited Mikimotos with a friend. At the end of our meal, we agreed that we'd never had a nicer, more accommodating server in all of our visits to this restaurant. Her name is Bridget, and she is welcoming, responsive, attentive and just genuinely kind. While I'm not in the restaurant business, my husband is. I know that... More

While dining at Mikimotos recently, we had the pleasure of being waited on by Bridget. She provided the best service we have experienced there! Thank you, Bridget!

I'm fairly new to Delaware and was looking for a good place to get some sushi. Did a search on Google and this place, Mikimotos had some great reviews so I thought "let me check it out." Three of us decided to try it and, WOW. The quality of the fish was excellent, and it was all prepared and presented... More

Mikimotos is by far the best Japanese restaurant in Wilmington, DE. We lived in Japan and we know our sushi :) We would recommend the hairy mexican and crazy tuna rolls, but let's not forget the cowboy yakitori and the fabulous shrimp tempura. If you want a yummy drink (esp. for ladies), we would recommend the Karma Gotcha. Bridget, our... More

I live in DE but travel all over the USA. Since 1990, I have become a lover of good sushi. I have been to 50 states and make it a goal to try Sushi wherever I go. No matter where I eat sushi, none comes close to the experience I have in my own backyard, Mikimotos. My wife and I... More

This is a regular dinner spot for myself and coworkers when working out of our local Delaware office. From the outside walking in, the restaurant is surprisingly hip and edgy in decor and menu. Very appealing! The sushi is great...from the Crazy Tuna roll to the Hairy Mexican to the Spider, all well done and nicely presented. I would stick... More

After working in downtown Wilmington for 8 years, I have no other go to sushi restaurants since Mikimotos is close by and can always be counted on for an enjoyable lunch and late night meal for the lawyers and bankers who end up working late. Choices for everyone, including plenty of non-sushi options and surprisingly good salads. While many local... More
