Restaurant in the Japan Center specialized in Don. Tried the sushi. They were OK. Very basic don. Nice staff, the prices are correct.

With so many similar options in the Japan Center, choosing one place was quite a challenge. We decided for this one and I believe it was the right choice, as we ended up eating there like three days in a row. Many options to try, but I will remember the udon. Like its neighbours, small, modest and with efficient service... More

Busy restaurant in the heart of Japan town. The beef ramen was excellent! Very good value for money... Would love to go back.

Great food, great servers! my family absolutely loves Japanese food- and this is one of the best we've had! Been to Japan several times and in my opinion Mifune food is quite like what we've had in Japan- but only bigger servings ! Clean place, friendly servers. Price quite reasonable, too.

My daughter and I enjoyed a nice lunch at Mifune during a shopping trip to Japantown. The food was very tasty, service was quick, and it was inexpensive. A good choice for lunch at Japantown!

Just visited the restaurant and had the AYCE shabu shabu. I have to say it wasn't the best experience. First off, I went around 8pm on a Tuesday with my partner and there were about 5 other tables in the entire restaurant. Once we were seated, it took awhile to take our order. Then, it took about 20 minutes to... More

Decent food, decent service, great prices. Brings back the memories when I used to come here almost every week during college. Can't go wrong, whether you get the donburi, udon, soba, or curry.

The food was good. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. She made me feel welcomed and explained everything to me if I had questions. I really enjoyed my food and the portions are large. I did not feel like I wasted money on small portions.

There are many places to eat in Japantown but we settled on Mifune based on the travel book reviews. It did not disappoint. We ordered 2 of the lunch specials which included udon, soba, sushi and tempura. My kids ordered more sushi and a chicken special. Food came in a timely manner and everything tasted great.
