    Wanted a new sushi place and this was a fun experience, sushi flows on by continually and each plate taste fresh. Pricing is incredibly low compared to what we’re used to.

    Service was poor. Asked for thin sliced lemons for sushi and they had no idea what I was talking about. Requested for a server and they never came. I constantly had to wave them down. Server was annoyed whenever I asked for anything. Fish was barely ok, it was dry and felt old. The fish wasn't molded to the nigiri, it sat flat and stiff like a board on top the the molded rice. Will not be returning.

    Great spot for really good quality sushi, I would never think to eat sashimi from a revolving sushi spot, but the tuna and salmon are some of the best I've had in San Diego. Occasionally they will have chutoro and otoro as well which is a must have! Overall great experience, prompt service, great food and drink options. This has become my go-to sushi spot in SD.

    I honestly was very disappointed I have been there a lot within the past year and I feel as though the last two times we’re very disappointing. We were at the bar and the bartender was not even there. We were told she had stepped out and would be back but that was not for at least 30 minutes. After that she did not pay attention to us at all and we were the only ones at the bar. When we went over to the sushi restaurant it was the same thing. We tried calling over a waiter so we could get soy sauce and they never came. I am not sure what is going on since they used to be amazing and had great service but I can not say that occurred this time or the previous time I went there.

    We have been here multiple times and each time is a little different and honestly slightly worse. The first time we came it was great, all around. We had no reservations and waited an hour but had drinks in the bar - we were ok with that. Revolving belt was full and had labels to know what your grabbing. Great service, food and cleanliness. Second time was good. The service was ok, we had reservations but still has to wait 30 minutes. One of the hosts had an attitude with us because we wanted our group of 7 to sit together and not two tables 20 feet away from each other, I’d was obvious when he rolled his eyes at me. Reviving belt had a fair amount of plates at all times and appropriate labeling. Server didn’t seem too thrilled with her job. Food was still great and the restaurant was clean. Full restaurant. Third time was mediocre at best. We were not checked on unless we ordered another drink from the tablet at the table. That even took way too long to receive. All we had were sodas and water, nothing special ordered from the bar. We had to waive down servers to ask for more soy sauce and chopsticks. Also, napkins… no napkins on the table when we were seated and we had to waive someone down for that as well. The revolving belt had minimal plates and what was coming out was not labeled appropriately or at all. You really need to KNOW fish (cooked and raw) if no labels are present. Restaurant was clean. Visit #2 & #3 were both attended with only half the restaurant open. I do suggest the restaurant take this into consider because my friends/family and I really enjoy this concept and the feel of the restaurant. We do also find the menus priced appropriately too. We would probably come in more often if minor changes were made… including the attitude of the servers/hosts. I am aware staffing may be short & and I understand this struggle but it doesn’t mean that service has to be that uncomfortable.

    Sushi rolls were fine and the value is excellent. Just not a lot of options or higher end fish, like toro or hamachi. Miso soup wasn’t very tasty, rather bland. I’d return, but there are better options out there for the price.

    Was greeted right away but sat at the end of the conveyor belt, which I requested in my reservation to be sat at the beginning. Using the app, items arrived quickly. Thought it is odd that sushi plates are not included in the app. Should be, especially if you are at the end of conveyor and your selection is gone. Food was just ok. Nothing bad but nothing great. Sashimi slices were so thin. The place is huge…could downsize the space and save on overhead. People that worked there were nice.

    You’re better off going to Kura sushi. There was a band playing so we couldn’t really enjoyed our food in peace. We waited 30 minutes for our water and we requested the server multiple times on the iPad. The food wasn’t too bad though. However won’t be coming back here again.

    This is my 4th time going. I was sat towards the end of the conveyer belt yesterday. Unfortunately, the rolls that I wanted were gone. Unlike the sushi go round in Japan, you can’t order the rolls you want, if you can’t find them on the belt. Overall, food is good.

    Went for my girlfriend’s 21st birthday and had a wonderful time! All the food was exceptional, $1 sake bombs during happy hour were great, and staff was very accommodating. Bullet train is cool, but our appetizers took 30 minutes and a friendly reminder to our server before they arrived. Still would absolutely come back for happy hour again and for the $25 per person all you can eat deal. Would recommend to any and all sushi lovers!

    I love this place! Great sushi, the atmosphere was calm. (I went on a weekday on opening hour) Friendly & outstanding service! Server attended to our table and made us laugh a couple times. Definitely will come to this place again. Get the AYCE. My family had about 60 plates. You will save money.

    The place is nice ample room. However, the revolving sushi items are of few varities, and the Udon and Ramen broth does not have taste almost like water.

    We had reviewed the menu prior to dining and found that menu items were put on more expensive plates than what the menu stated. There we no pink plate sushi items in rotation. Also there were only 5 menu items on the convayer going around over and over for the hour we spent there. We didn't eat sushi due to the fact that there was extremely limited option and we did not want to overpay for menu items because the color plate they were on did not match the menu. Overall a poor experience and will never return. I would much rather take my chances with the long wait list at Kura down the road. They have quality sushi, presentations, prices, and service. Its worth the wait.

    We visited a few years back when Mikami was new. We decided to visit again since it's new management. The variety of sushi on the rotating belt AND on the order menu is sparse. The typical basic rolls like a philly, cali, salmon, tuna was not available. Some of the sushi was on the belt the entire time we were there so it wasn't freshly made. The choices for hot food on the iPad was nice, although when I received my miso soup it was luke warm. Mikami has so much potential to rival it's competitor down the street. I'd love to visit again with an updated menu and sushi offering.

    The selection was terrible, no salmon, no scallops, no bellies and the fish they did have was not impressive at all. The tuna was mushy. We left still hungry and unsatisfied. We will not be going back.

    Terrible customer service, lack of food (a surprise in a conveyor belt sushi place!), manager “too busy” to speak to customer, and waiter lacking skills, including being too “busy” to bring us our check or assist when we needed simple things (ex. Utensils to eat with!)

    This place far exceeded our expectations! We had never been to a revolving sushi spot before and wanted to try it out. When we got there we were pleasantly informed they have all you can eat Monday-Thursday!!! What a score!! Then as we’re enjoying our sushi, chef Joe comes out, table to table to offer fresh fish cut to our liking. Mikami blew our expectations out of the water and satisfied every craving. Can’t wait to come back!!!

    Sat on the bar side to be near the music. 1/2 of the menu items were unavailable. I ordered 2 dishes and tea. 1st dish took about 15 minutes and 2nd dish of rainbow nigiri I was another 30 minutes. One of the nigiri was filet mignon, which I cannot eat. 2 waiters did not know what it was. Thankfully a friend enjoyed it while he waited a while for his order. Staff was wonderful, getting food timely did not happen. In times like these, I just tried to be patient, but quietly frustrated why 3 tables of diners waited so long for essentially appetizers. I hope you can find good help soon as this is a great looking business.

    An interesting take on the conveyor belt sushi concept. Individual items are priced at $3, $4 or $5 each, based on the color of the plate, and there is a separate menu for more specialized (i.e., more expensive) items. Quality is not anywhere near the "best sushi" you will taste and the fish portions for the nigiri sushi were on the small side, but the meal was inexpensive, and an AYCE option will be especially popular for hungry young men and women. Overall, pretty good value as long as you are not expecting gourmet quality sushi at this price.
