Excellent food and large servings, attentive staff. I had the sampler appetizer as my meal. It came with an assortment of dipping sauces. Absolutely wonderful.

Favorite Chinese in town. Local favorite in trendy area. Sushi made fresh to order. Get the Vietnamese spring rolls traditional style.

When we're down Bardstown Road, we enjoy lunching at Café Mimosa -- a longtime Louisville tradition successfully operated by onetime Vietnamese refugees. I suspect they have a lot to offer on their dinner menu, but I'll report on some lunches. For a long time I've been concentrating on some of the usual Chinese lunch items -- Sczechuan beef, Hunan beef,... More

Located in the trendy area of Bardstown Road, the Café Mimosa is easy to get to and good for a decent meal at a fair price. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was served quickly. We had a California roll, which was very good and some sweet and sour pork along with General Tso's chicken.... More

Took a few minutes to be seated even though there were empty tables. We shared a bottle of wine which was very good and four different sushi rolls. My favorite was the Cajun roll which came with an excellent dipping sauce. I also enjoyed the yellow fin tuna roll. The spider roll was a bit thin on the meat. All... More

All of us were happy campers. My clay pot fish was very flavorful and spring rolls were tasty. Service was prompt and follow-up timely. It's good to have such consistent quality in the neighborhood, menu offers Vietnamese choices as well as Chinese. Looking forward to returning again.

Even the waiter seemed to realize that this place offers mediocre (at best) Vietnamese food. Unfortunately, my host did not. It's the only bad Pho I've ev er eaten.

mimosa is a staple around here. It will do the job when you want sushi and your companions don't want a sushi bar. Do not expect out of this world dishes, but it is reliable.

I love sushi and Chinese food and I think it is hard to find good places that serve either. This restaurant also has Vietnamese and Thai choices. Someone suggested I try this place. I looked at the reviews and they seemed to be mixed. I met some friends on a Friday after work. The weather was very nice so we... More
