Mikko Japanese Cuisine
Located just one-half mile from the Pacific Ocean, this restaurant is tucked away in a series of Carlsbad specialty shops. As you peruse the menu, do not miss the boat! The Geisha Boat includes Chicken Teriyaki, Tempura California Rolls and salad. Looking for a bit smaller portions? Try some of the a la carte items, such as the Chicken Teriyaki Bowl.
this is place is super gross...the staff is really rude. I had to get my own menus since the waittress didn t even acknowledge us when we came in. The chefs were rude to other staff. Disrespectful and the food tasted like it had been sitting there for weeks. We left that place hungry :( will never go back there, and I advise everybody to avoid bad service and bad food. GROSS
This is not a high end fancy expensive place. It's a good place to get good sushi at a good price.
I have tried lots of things here and loved 95% of it. The staff is always friendly but sometimes when busy they are a little overwhelmed. One thing that people seem to get wrong is the number of rolls you order. Unlike one person mentioned you can order just 1 if you want. However if you order 5 or more they are 50% off.
Because the staff is not 100% fluent in English they may have miss understandings. If you say order 4 rolls they may tell you that you need to order 1 more. You don't 'have' to but you would be stupid not to as that will cut the price of all your rolls in half. Some people think they are saying you 'must' order more.
I love the Poki salad and Philli rolls myself. But many items are great. They have the best Miso I have ever tasted and a great cucumber salad as well.
Also if sushi is not your thing, they have lots of other Japanese cooked foods, soups, noodles, chicken, shrimp and more.
The building use to be a old school diner back in the 70's (maybe even before) so it's not fancy. If you want fancy 'American' Japanese atmosphere then go elsewhere. I say American because in Japan most non tourist joints are more like this one atmosphere wise.
Lets be honest here. If you enjoy Mikko, you're not looking for ultra high end, super legit sushi. You're not looking to spend 25-50 dollars a person on sushi, this is a great place to get sushi at a great value. Its consistantly better than I expect to. Realistic expectations have everything to do with your dining experience, wherever that may be.
Its a great location, easy beach and freeway access. Basic rolls are always solid, as are their teriyaki and teppanyaki menus.
The only time I've ever had bad service, is because I came in with a large party. They usually have 2 waitresses, 3 sushi chefs and 2 people in the kitchen. They use minimal staffing, so if you're in the lunch or dinner rush, there may be a delay.
For standard rolls, and japaneese cuisine, theres certainly no better value in north county.
it's just Ok, average sushi restaurant. price is very decent, but service is very bad....it's very busy restaurant so, if you wanna have cozy, hassile free enviorment, i don't recommand. but for bargin haunter should try it.
My fiancee and I live in the area, and this is definitely the best sushi we've found in south orange county/north county san diego. We eat there roughly weekly.
The place is privately owned, sushi staff are very attentive.
If you order 5 rolls, you get them all 50% off. Thats a ridiculously good deal. The rolls are larger than average, and have 8 pieces where alot of places have 6. 5 stars isn't a fair mark for value, it should be 6 or 7! We meet our friends here often, because its a cheap way to try 8 or 10 different rolls for 5 or 6 people.
The catapillar and crunchy rolls are especially good.
The ambiance is mainly supplied by the area, and not the restraunt itself. An after dinner walk is always nice.
I've eaten at nicer places. I've eaten at places with a little better sushi. I haven't found a place thats a better value, more laid back, and more food oriented than this place. You aren't paying for curtains and a swanky address, you're paying for sush.
The sushi is generic, nothing incredible. All these people who think its' the best ever are nuts! Its' the 'Dennys' of sushi, edible but nothing fantastic. Try Kaisen on Oceanside Blvd, fresher fish and better vibe.
