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.

  1. 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

    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

    Mikado Japanese
    402 N Dixie Way, South Bend, IN 46637

    1. 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?).
