“Japanese food in Mexico?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

I live for 6 or 7 months a year in Mexico and there is lots of Japanese restaurants where I live. I wish Delica Mitsu was one of them. It is truly a hole in the wall place, run by a nice, young Japanese couple. The sushi is not slathered in mayonnaise, but very authentic. the various salads that they make fresh daily are all great. Go early, say 2:00 pm, before they start running out of stuff. Just off San Fernando Plaza , it is a bit hard to find, but find the plaza and ask the people at the crepe place which callione to walk up. Combine it with a trip the Diego Museum or the University as both are nearby.

“An Unexpected Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

After living in Tokyo for 5 years, we know Japanese food and were pleasantly surprised by how fresh and delicious our lunch at Delica Mitsu was today! Yes, it's a hard to find hole-in-the-wall, but it's worth the search if you want authentic Japanese food, cooked by Japanese chefs, with good fresh ingredients. We read comments about slow or bad service, but our experience was totally positive, and we were surprised how quickly our order arrived during the crowded, busy lunch hour.

“Great place, but hard to find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

A nice , small Asian food restaurant, if you arrive after 15:30 you wont be able to eat whatever its in the menu. Lunch time its the best to enjoy this excellent Japanese food although its really hard to find the place and the service its really slow. Not much space to seat.

“Best of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

I love everything about this funky, 100% authentic little hole in the wall. The Japanese owner cooks everything so perfectly that the food goes fast every day. Absolutely delicious fare, superb, loving, friendlty service, great pricess and an enormous favourite of people who've never tasted Japanese cuisine before.

“Wonderful food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

We came for dinner and loved the sushi. The menu is pretty limited and they told us they were only open from 7-8 for dinner. But we are glad we came as we really enjoyed the misu soup and rolls. The place is a hole in the wall in need of a paint job. But the waitress was very friendly and we would definitely return. I would have given it a 5 if they would have have just painted the walls.
