We went to Mifune because my father's friend recommended a japanese resto that is serving a buffet for only 333.00. When we arrived, it was packed! Though the food was okay. I like japanese food. I visited some authentic japanese restos here at Luzon. But I guess at Mifune it was not authentic. The food was more on the pinoy... More

The quality is not the same as the sushi in Japan or the US because they use mostly local fish and not from the colder waters . But the restaurant is very clean with a friendly staff , a very nice atmosphere and some good dishes dishes .

From the outside, you're not really sure the place is as inviting as it looks. But when you go inside you find more seats to accommodate guests. Food price versus food quality wise, I would say that it's a bit pricey considering it could come off obvious that some of the ingredients aren't fresh. My tuna maki has a weird... More

Not fresh produce! Nothing authentic! Too expensive for the quality of the food! Hard to chew beef! Suchi is all rice, tiny bit of prawn that stank! I would not come here too it even for free!!

My partner and I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have always found the staff polite and welcoming. A good selection of Japanese favourites, freshly prepared and cooked to order. I can recommend this as a quite restaurant and not the usual noisey Philippine type.

Revisited Dumaguete after a 10 year hiatus. Tried Mifune for late lunch. Teriyaki salmon bento box at P390. At some time in the past, this probably was an authentic Japanese restaurant. Now, reportedly owned by a Swiss businessman. Being the only Japanese restaurant in town, by definition it is the best Japanese restaurant in town. I remember a few years... More

We went there on Tuesday buffet night and got what one can expect on these all you can eat things: food that only could be called very average at most: chewy and almost cold shrimp tempura, supermarket-style cheap sushi,... Not very memorable. Would prefer paying a bit more and get decent food.

Authentic Japanese cuisine? Nope. Too much expensive and not worth your money. Sushis and makis were horrible. Sorry but a no-go.

Three years ago we came to Mifune for the first time. And because we this year we were in the neighbourhood we went to Mifune again. The staff was friendly and professional. And the sushi we ate was very fresh an tasted good.

I would think that at this price, the place would be packed... And it was! We had to wait for about 10 minutes before we could be seated. The dining area though was so small that you would bump into people going to the buffet area. I liked the miso soup. The taste and quality of the other dishes were... More
