12 of my family members met up in Palm Desert California and we ate out the first night at Mikado. The age range was from four years old to 72 years old, with the four-year-old not normally staying in one place for longer than five minutes. They took our order and then our chef came to the table to cook our food in front of us. We have done restaurants like this many, many times because my five grandchildren love the entertainment that accompanies the eating. Well, no one was prepared for how funny our chef would be. He told jokes and constantly interacted with everyone at the table. So much so, that even after almost 2 hours, the four-year-old had not moved an inch from his seat. He not only told jokes, but interacted with everyone so it was a floor show as well as a meal. It was pricey, I will say that. However, I felt like I was not only paying for dinner for 12, but also play paying for a night of in entertainment for 12 as well. It was loud, crazy and fun for all of us. And to top it off, the food was really good!Dear Guest,Thank you for such a prefect review. We truly appreciate all feedback that is provided to us! We look forward to welcoming you again whether for business or pleasure.

I just received marketing mail from Joyce's Sushi. All Christian- calendar with Bible verses on every month's page, business card with Bible verse numbers, etc. I regard this as totally unacceptable. As a result, you can be sure that I will intentionally avoid this restaurant. Religion should be a personal thing and not foisted upon others, particularly in business.

Reviewed By Lance2002

For me this is an special occasion restaurant which means it is too expensive to visit on regular basis. Dinner for two with two drinks came to almost $180 per couple including tip. But you can spend less if you skip the drinks and don't have an appetizer. This was Valentine's Day so we had reservations. We waited about 10 minutes to be seated. We ordered drinks and waited about 10 minutes for them to come out. Their drink prices are reasonable and about the same as most restaurants of this quality, We choose to have an appetizer before dinner-enhanced California rolls. For the cost, they were on the expensive side for 8 rolls, maybe about $5 or $6 more than most places. They were good but not that good. The issue was they took so long to come out that some of the dinner was being served at the same time. 3 of us ordered the NY steak and pawns dinner and one ordered the chicken and pawns dinner. I suggest that you have the fried rice and not the white rice but it costs almost $6 extra which is about $3 more than it normally should be. Everyone enjoyed their food and there was plenty of it, including dessert, as we took some home. Our chef was friendly and talkative. They all put on the same show at this type of restaurant. This was nothing special. I would say come here for special occasions like Valentine's day, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. Be prepared to spend some money for a meal that is very good but not extraordinary.

Shabu Shabu Zen

Reviewed By David H

After sampling several restaurants with foreign influences, we found a Japanese restaurant and were surprised to find a hot pot style of food. They serve only wine and beer. We were instructed how to use the vegetables, noodles, meats and sauces and enjoyed the entire process of the dining process. We are proficient with chop sticks but at times the wooden ones furnished didn’t feel strong enough to fish the broth soaked meat out of the pot. We plan to return next year though as we had a good time, perhaps with our own chop sticks.
