With three easily accessible locations in New Jersey at Margate on Ventnor Avenue, Moorestown on Lenola Road and Cherry Hill on Route 70, one can not afford to miss out on such a great meal.

For those who are interested in a leisurely and entertaining dinner, the hibachi part of Mikado is sure to please. While eating hibachi-style is slightly more expensive, the extra money is definitely worth the while. During a hibachi-style dinner, diners are entertained as restaurant staff cooks their food right in front of them. Not only do customers get to watch their food being prepared, but the chefs also amuse their audience with exciting tricks, such as juggling knives. Moreover, when one chooses to eat hibachi-style, the meal includes a large amount of food. With great food and entertainment, a hibachi dinner is the perfect thing to spice up a summer night.

One can choose between different meats, such as different types of steak and chicken, seafood, like shrimp, and vegetables. For those who can’t decide which main course they like best, Mikado also offers combination plates with two types of meat or seafood. However, no matter what main course one chooses, it always comes with a soft drink, a cup of miso soup, a salad, grilled vegetables, shrimp and vegetable-fried rice.

For those who are not interested in the entertainment provided by hibachi, Mikado also offers seating for a more traditional sit-down dinner. With a large menu that offers all different types of Japanese food from soup to sushi to meat and fish, there is something for everyone on the menu. Eating in the non-hibachi part of Mikado offers more variety and freedom as to what to eat. Nonetheless, the service is still prompt and the prices are still reasonable.

With restaurants all over South Jersey, Mikado Japanese Cuisine provides an appetizing meal at a reasonable price and an enjoyable evening with great service for all occasions.
