About Us & Careers

THE MIKADO EXPERIENCE Alberta’s first Japanese restaurant, serving Edmonton since 1972.

David Okumiya came to Canada from Japan in 1980 with the goal to spread the beauty of Japanese culture and his passion for his cultures food. It’s because of that passion that Mikado Sushi & Robata is what it is today and continues to provide its patrons with the high-quality, truly delicious sushi.

To provide you with the best sashimi and sushi, we have fresh fish flown weekly from Tsukiji, Japan (the world’s largest fish market), California, Nova Scotia, and the B.C. Coast.

We have genuine Robata grills specially imported from Japan. Their unique design allows for very high temperatures while keeping meats, seafood and vegetables juicy and tender.

The Mikado team is proud to include certified Japanese Sushi Chefs in our kitchen staff. Mikado features large Sushi Bars and Private Tatami Rooms to enhance your dining pleasure.
