Mikado’s Secret Menu


Mikado sushi restaurant has a secret menu…shhhhhh!  Mikado is an oasis for sushi lovers in the Davis County area.  While there are a number of great sushi restaurants in the Salt Lake Valley they are fewer and farther in-between once you start heading north.  Mikado’s in Bountiful is one of the better sushi restaurants you’ll encounter and to my knowledge the only one in Bountiful.

Mikado’s is also great as they have good food for those who want something more or different than sushi.  I can bring my non-sushi loving family along and they can get something like the Mango Chicken Yakitori and we’re all fat an happy!

Many restaurants do this, we’ve all heard about the famed In-and-Out Burger secret menu, so if you’re a sushi lover and want to try something new head on down and try one of the Mikado secret menu sushi rolls.

Utah Sushi Roll Expert Review:
Our expert reviews take into account four factors: food quality, cleanliness of location, service and price. Ratings are on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being outstanding. Our rating for this Restaurant is as follows:

Overall Rating: 3.25
We were downtown at the City Creek mall and were wandering through the food court to find a quick bite to eat and when I think of sushi from a food court I pu it on par with sushi from the grocery store.  While both those seem a step behind a good sit-down restaurant I’ve got to say I was pleasantly surprised with Mr. Sushi.  The food was way better than I expected and it was the first time my sushi has been prepared in-front of me with a flaming platter, so A for presentation there. So if your downtown at City Creek and looking for an alternative to the Cheesecake Factory for a quick bite, check out Mr. Sushi, you may just be pleasantly surprised at how good the food is.

Quality: 3.5
I tried the Dynamite and the Vegas rolls.  the taste of the Dynamite roll was very good.  The Vegas roll too was on par with many sushi restaurants that I’ve been to and well above what you’d get in a grocery store. One in the win column for food court sushi.

Cleanliness: 3.5
This sushi restaurant is in City Creek which is a new property and pretty upscale.  It’s in the food court but over there isn’t a lot for the customer to interact with during their experience, so I’ve got to say everything looked fairly clean from my perspective maybe a little tight for room because it’s a food court and that can make it look a little cluttered, but I was happy with the experience from this standpoint.

Service: 3
The service was good. The greeting wasn’t the friendliest, but you’re dealing with mass quantities in a food court after all.  I’m still excited about the fact that my sushi was cooking in front of me in tin foil on a flaming platter and so the presentation points and service go way up.  The general lack of a friendly greeting and explanation of the process could go a long way to improving the experience, but then again this isn’t Takashi or Mikado.

Price: 3
You expect to get gouged at a food court for poor quality food but I was pleasantly surprised.  The food was good and it didn’t break the bank.  They have some affordable specials that make it easier to try a number of different rolls.  The meal also comes with two free sides.  I had the edamame pods an some fried vegetables.  The quantity of these sides wasn’t over abundant, but it was a nice touch to the meal and I was pleased.
