Any chowhounds in South Bend area? Need Japanese RECS!!
Are there any decent japanese restaurants in South Bend or it's area? Looking for fresh sushi for a Sunday dinner with a group of friends.
Well, here are your options:
Mikado in Roseland
Matuba on McKinley Hwy
Toyo on Edison Road, Mishawaka
and Soho Japanese Bistro in Heritage Square/Toscana Park area http://sohojapanesebistro.com/
Personally, I've only be to the first two, but it was a very long time ago. At the time, I really liked Mikado, but Matuba not so much. However, I have a friend who really enjoys Matuba, and Soho...and she really likes sushi. I've heard a lot of good things about Soho from a number of people.
Sorry this is not more helpful, but its a start....
Matuba Japanese Restaurant Sushi & Sashimi
2930 McKinley Ave, South Bend, IN 46615
Toyo Japanese Restaurant
620 W Edison Rd, Mishawaka, IN 46545
402 N Dixie Way, South Bend, IN 46637
I've been to Soho, and the sushi was very good, to judge by the small sample I tried. I'd happily go back, although I have not tried the other places mentioned.
On another note, one non-sushi fan ordered the fried rice--not a good move. I tasted it, and it was really lackluster. Too bad when people insist on ordering outside a restaurant's principal focus (fried rice is no kind of Japanese dish, right?).
