My niece calls this place "the show" as she likes the show put on by the cooks flipping eggs in the air, squirting things in your mouth, cooking right at your table! Great place to go with a group.

To begin as a couple who eats very little $7.50 is a ridiculous fee for sharing, no extra work or dishes simply sharing off the same plate. From there the chicken teriyaki was good and the Philadelphia roll was good. I would have enjoyed it more if the hostess was at bit more cheerful. For the price, the service, and... More

I really enjoy hibachi. I love the "show" of it, even though they are all pretty similar - chef lights a volcano in the onions, flips an egg into his hat, etc. It's just fun to watch your food be cooked in front of you, especially when the chef shows off. I was not overwhelmed by this place. I wasn't... More

I'm a big fan of hibachi restaurants, but this one was only average. I had the steak and calamari. The steak was a little chewy, and the calamari, although cooked to a perfect tenderness, was decidedly lacking in flavor.

Dependably good, this restaurant has a firm place on our list of places to dine. Though we've never been disappointed with an entree, our recurring favorite is filet & shrimp. They have an excellent sushi bar.

Mikata is now offering Appetizers and an up-dated menu with the price of fried rice clearly marked at $2. If you are in the mood for a sushi offering, mention it to your waitress and she will get you one to meet your needs. The house soup is tasty and comforting, I don't care for the salad dressing which is... More

I Loved this place! Our personal chef was extremely funny and truely entertained us while making a Delicious Meal. I wouldn't recommend this for couples who want a deep and intimate date night. This has more of a social and vibrant atmosphere.

It is no way a Japanese restaurant :( :( :( The girl in the front is rude and stupid. I have been to better Hibachi places. And this place is damn expensive. Only because it is Auburn, they are still in business. I did not try Sushi though. And do not even want to try. I will definitely never go... More
