This place has gone downhill since my last visit. The chef was not entertaining. The food was overcooked to the point of being dry and tough. They could have cut out half the salt and it would have still been too salty. The beef had an off taste and all but one of our group got sick.

What a great place. We were sat quickly at one of the hibachi tables. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. We order two types of sushi rolls. They were amazing. Our chef was Sam. He was so much fun and his food was great. The cost was well worth the money....

They cook the food on a grill in front of you and put on a little show as they go. It's not the best I've had but it's always really good. We've never had any complaints about the food or service. The place has been around for awhile and still seams to be doing a good business.

Mikato sushi restaurant is some of the best sushi I've eaten since I came home from New York. It was a Wednesday night around 7:30 and had the urge for sushi. I sat at the sushi bar because I was alone which I often do. I made friends with the chef and he made me the most beautiful plate of... More

Randi, the Sushi Master, is not only an excellent sushi master, he is an artist. My favorite dish is the sashimi entrée (I don't want to stuff me with empty rice carbs) and it always sends me to heaven. The quality of the fish is excellent, the presentation makes it a perfect experience.

We love going here for special occasions but you have to ask for sam. He's funny and actually knows what he's doing on the grill. We've had others burn or undercooked but sam has never let us down. It's dinner and a show. I love to get their mayo dressing and soup. I sometimes crave it. I cannot wait to... More

I have been wanting to have another habachi grill experience since my very first time in Georgia and I'm so happy we went to Mikato's. The man doing the grilling was really helpful and didn't mind all the food issues I deal with. There were 3 different dining groups at the grill and he was attentive to all of us.... More
