This amazing hotel restaurant (frequented by the imperial family) harkens to a past that I'm not sure ever existed. The mix of history and cultures come together in a sweet wonderful way that doesn't seem to be part of this world. Is it from France, from the 50's, from the imperial family, from a ghibli film? Whatever it is, it's... More

There is a choice between a western breakfast or the Japanese breakfast you cannot go wrong with either one. The service is warm and meticulous.

We stayed at nara hotel for 3 days and had lunch the last day before departing for the airport. I mean the food tastes like a fast food restaurant on the highway in Europe. Economy class ticket beef curry on a low cost airline is of the same taste. This regarding the beef curry. My wife ordered chicken pilaf. I... More

Lovely beef curry and very nice local Chardonnay here. Professional staffs, foods are great and not overpriced at all for French restaurant. I can't ask for more.

We came to Mikasa just to try its famous beef curry, and it didn't let us down. The beef, the curry and the rice were all good, and most importantly, they were well integrated. The service could be improved but we care more about the food than the service anyway. Will definitely come back when we visit Nara next time.

The restaurant has a romantic setting with nice glimpse of a pond. The food was overpriced. We ordered chicken cutlet and "boiled" fish. The chicken was very mediocre quality and fish had about 4 bites and very little flavor. The most shocking were the wine prices. The quarter of a glass of an average St Emilion was $20. Considering that... More

Mikasa has two dining sections. The large, high-ceilinged main dining room is a striking mix of Japanese and western. The coffered wood ceiling, hanging lamps, and wood framing of the walls, doors, and windows are all Japanese. The tables, chairs, table settings are all western. The space is elegantly beautiful, a harmony of browns and greens, but sometimes overrun by... More
