Mimi's used to be a good restaurant years ago but the restaurant has severely went down-hill just like the "lady" it was named after. The restaurant is very run-down and dirty-looking. There was old rice all over the floor and on my chair

They reduced me to Begging for beer after ignoring me and my party for 20min at the table forcing me to retrive my groups drink order from the bar. Then 30 minutes later no soup, no salad and no chef. Never again.

I have ate lunch in the dining room at Mimi's before with a large group of my co-workers and we all enjoyed our food, however, today my take out order experience was less than favorable. I picked up 2 lunches from Mimi's for my co-worker

Why are people so dumb and self-centered? Of course when they're busy they're going to want you to leave after you've finished, they have to turn the table so they can seat your angry mob friends at the front door that are whining about that wait. And give your server a break. You have one server, they have about ten of you to a table, its not as easy as you may think and your brain can get scattered.
It shouldn't surprise anyone that they get talked about after they leave. You're talking about them aren't you?

Such stuffy people should seriously take a pill. If you want more devoted service, hire a personal chef.

Beef tataki amazing, best yellow tail,scallion roll I have had in greenville. Cucumber roll is awesome, mussels are dank, beer is cheap. I think the people that hate Fcked the page with complaints and whining and bickering. Ive been there like 5 times. I think alot of it was downright lies. The restaurant is perfectly clean. The service is fine they are just busy and if you talk like a field mouse and don't speak up and tell the staff what you need or whats wrong. yea you gonna sit there unhappy and then come home and right a awful review filled with lies and slander. How do you even sleep at night you miserable fcks.

Pros: Great sush,,habachi,chefs,and atmosphere

Cons: my favorite chef went to the new location.... thats it.....

My husband and I have been regulars here since they opened the doors. Yes, you may have to wait. No, you don't sit at your table and socialize after you've finished your meail. The cucumber rolls and soy salad dressing are awesome. Mimi's never been rude to us and I've never seen her be rude to anyone.

Pros: Cucumber Roll, Soy dressing

Cons: Can have a long wait time

We waited an actual hour before someone came and took our drink order. Then when the waitress finally came, she didn't even have a pen. She had to run off and find one. Then it took another 15 to 20 minutes for the chef to come and cook the food. The owner, Mimi, actually came to the table next to us and picked up someone's plate while they were still from eating from it. He had to holler at her for her to bring it back because she was walking off. She was very rude and not personable at all. A couple at the table with us had ordered an alcoholic drink and they were almost finished eating by the time they got it. The place was completely gross. The floor was dirty all over and then one of the waitresses was vaccuuming around a table where people were eating. If you were going to do that, why not get the whole place. After the vaccuuming, the floor was still dirty. The food tasted was nasty and the place had a nasty smell, especially for a restaurant. By the time we got home, my boyfriend did not feel good at all. It was just a really bad experience and we will never go back to Mimi's again. The only reason we went there in the first place is because we didn't want to wait at Miyabi's but by the time we left Mimi's, we really wished we had. I don't care if another restaurant says the wait is 2 hours, I'd whether go home and make me a bologna sandwich (which I didn't even like) than to go back to Mimi's.

Pros: We were seated right when we walked in.

Cons: Too many to count.

I eat sushi about three times a week, so I can tell you this was the worst I have ever had. Not very fresh but very overpriced, not to mention it took forever to get it. I knew more about the menu then our server. i tried to customize a roll that would have cost me $6 dollars at Cafe de Miyako(the best restaraunt in Greenville, with the absolute best sushi) cost me $11 here.....It better come with a carath of Saki for that price. Bottomline...go to Miyako off Wade Hampton behind K-Mart, there is nothing better, I can get better food at Ingles then Mimi's...BOOOOO!!

The best of both worlds with a sushi bar and hibachi, Mimi's is the best Japanese steakhouse in Greenville! Their chefs are always friendly and try their best to have a good show and their sushi chef is outstanding. Definitely a must try!

Mimi's is our absolute favorite Japanese Steakhouse! The staff are friendly and accomodating, the newly updated bar area boasts 2 flat-screen TVs, and the sushi is the best in town! They tend to be crowded early on the weekends, but more accessible a little later. Mimi always has a special sushi roll available; my current favorite is the "Mike's roll", but the "Mimi's Crunch Roll" is a close second! Prices are reasonable and I've never left hungry!

Went three times because we wanted to give the restaurant a chance and didn't want to stop going over one problem. Realized soon that there were several problems: unkempt appearance of busboys and chefs (clothing stained and wrinkled), owner Mimi moody, and the final straw was that the chef pulled out a male doll container (that was a lemon or water sprayer) and sprayed that on the food. We had small children and mentioned the inappropriateness to Mimi, the owner, but she laughed and said that it was part of the show. The food was OK, but can get the same or better Japanese hibachi style at any of the other ones in town.

Pros: Parking was easy.

Cons: lacked cleanliness and neatness, inappropriate chef show for families

About half way through the meal I noticed that a piece of my rice had legs...turned out it was not rice! I quietly notified the owner and she reluctantly took my entree off the bill. My two dining companions who were eating the same entrees were expected to pay for their food even though they had both seen the insect. She finally agreed to comp the entire bill, which was only appropriate since none of us ate anyway. One of my co-workers was dining in the restaurant as we left and she told me that after we left, the owner continued to complain loudly about us. She also indicated that she was going to boycott the company I work for. Bottom line? Unprofessional, rude and not customer oriented at all! Save your money and catch your own insects for dinner!

Pros: fun cooks

Cons: on weekends it can get crowded

I was there with a party of six friends last night (1-21-06). The service was good (actually the appearance of the wait staff and bus boy was rather wrinkled and stained) and the steakhouse food was good, not great. The sushi was excellent.

The problem was after our check came we paid and sat and talked about 15 minutes, BIG mistake on a crowded Saturday night. The owner, (I guess it's Mimi she's the lady who has been there since day one, and I know because I've been a regular since day one.) was getting perturbed as she came by to give us the glad you came but please hurry and leave look. (Unfortunately it went over our heads, I wish she would have just asked us to move then.).

This place is the GREATEST. The food is always great but the best part is the show that you get. It doesn't matter what chief that you get they are all wonderful. We have been to many other places like this, but not any more. It is hard to believe that the owner will seat you, clean tables or anything else that may need doing. Oh did I forget to tell you, she remembers her customers by their names. This place is unbelievible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
