You may not be able to eat at Miko’s anymore, but there are endless options for delicious food in Sin City from the Strip to Fremont Street.

History of Miko’s Sushi

Miko’s Sushi opened its doors in September 2008. Their team of third generation Japanese sushi chefs set out with the mission to bring authentic Japanese sushi to Las Vegas at an affordable price. While the restaurant was open, they did exactly that!

The menu at Miko’s included a great selection of sushi, tempura, ramen, soba, and udon noodles. It was an inclusive dining environment for everyone, with vegan and vegetarian sushi rolls and hot vegetarian dishes. The sushi and what is Japanese

restaurant quickly made a name for themselves among locals and tourists in Las Vegas, including a reputation for some of the best Soba noodles in the city!

Like many Las Vegas restaurants, Miko’s Sushi began experiencing troubles during the pandemic. Unfortunately, their excellent food wasn’t enough to sustain the business during such troubling times, which led Miko’s Sushi to close its doors permanently.
