Unlike so many Japanese restaurants, Mikado is really Japanese and you can order your food in Japanese. Lots of fun and a great location right next to the waterfront in Burlington with its beach-side walkway.

Mother's Day, Takeout dues to Lockdown, I ordered the most expensive dinner for 2 on the Menu. This is my first time is my last. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Food tasted disgusting. The rice they used for Sushi and Rolls still...Raw, Grainy and Hard. Fish not fresh and too fatty, not supposed to be. Beef is too sweet with cheap Cabbage. Tempura is soft and very greasy. Very small portion. Icream for 2 is a laugh. I'm Japanese so I know what and how the food supposed to be prepared and cooked. They don't even know how to pack hot food away from Sushi. Food Presentation turns me off. I don't know how this place gets high ranking.More

Service was extremely poor. Food was worse than a cafeteria No draft beer and extremely limited wine. We were the only people having lunch and our server would disappear for long periods of time. Very disappointing experience

Mikado was “very good.” We had the Samurai Dragon Roll, Salmon Sushi, Hamachi Sushi, Toro Sushi, Ikura Sushi, Uni Sushi, Sweet Shrimp Sushi and fried Soft Shell crab. Everything was very good with the exception of a few things: 1. The sushi rice was slightly...undercooked. 2. The Uni did not taste fresh. 3. The sweet shrimp didn’t come with the fried heads on the side. Had the points mentioned above been better, I would have given Mikado a perfect rating. The price is very good, significantly cheaper than my favourite spot in Burlington Sushi Masayuki.More

I love this restaurant! The service and food are great. There is no need to go to an all you can eat sushi place because Mikado offers large portions that have great quality. A must if you are in downtown Burlington!

I have been here a few times now, and each I really enjoy it. They have a great selection of food on there menu. The rolls are larger compared to other places I have tried. Very accommodating with my gluten allergy as well. The atmosphere...is clean, quiet and quaint. Prices are very reasonable.More

Visited Mikado for the first time last night for dinner. Our reservation gave us an intimate table for two by the front window. Very nice décor and ambiance. We didn't want alcohol so ordered soft drinks which came in unopened cans with glasses of ice.......I...though this was a little odd. I ordered the sashimi platter. It was delicious and very filling. The presentation was incredible but a little over the top. I could have done without the skewered hollowed out fish with head attached . It was so ornate I had to take a picture though, and I NEVER do that. Service was excellent. I would definitely visit again!More

My friend and I scouted several restaurants along Brant Street, decided upon this one and did we ever made an excellent choice! We selected several appetizers and shared them, each one perfectly prepared and presented and so delicious. Our server was congenial and obliging. The...venue is small but nicely arranged. Prices are reasonable. I recommend Mikado 100%.More
