Those with discriminating tastes or those who wish to sample authentic, traditional Japanese dishes can find both really only at Mirai. Indeed, Mirai is more than your ROTM sushi joint: it's actually a "full-service" Japanese restaurant, beyond simple Westernized rolls (some places might as well have a French Fry Roll) and tempura. But before you cynic away at the idea of "authentic dishes" and say sushi is sushi, I remind you the added benefit of the full menu: it's less work convincing your squeamish date to go Japanese food with you. While you gorge on the raw stuff, there's hot, cooked food for everyone as well. Novices and gourmets will enjoy intricate appetizers such as the Dobinmushi, a mushroom broth served in a teapot, or the Chawan Mushi, a steamed egg dish with morsels of seafood. Vegetarians will want to sample the crisp, refreshing Vegetable Garden rolls, and the adventurous should try out the Ankimo Ponzu (sauteed monkfish liver). Couples, of course, can get all hot and steamy with the Shabu Shabu hotpot for two. But you only want pure, unadulterated raw goodness? Well Mirai is still the place, and any sashimi addict must order the Chef's Special, which will leave you lusting for the stuff days after (you'll also realize that Uni elsewhere tastes like crap; plus if you're trying to induct a sushi virgin, you might as well use the best, not some nasty stuff that'll turn them away for life). All this gastronomy finery is served to you in art-like, invitingly-arranged servings, accompanied by a sophisticated but relaxing ambience and greetings from the ultra-friendly owners (who are actually Japanese, which, not to sound prejudiced, should count for something, right?). Mirai's only detraction is its lunch options, which is currently topped by ["Nobu Hiro"] (best quality/bargain buffet in Davis) and ["Moshi Moshi"] (best quality/bargain bento sets), but if only for pricing and its a very close third. Anyway, obviously I have a high affinity for this joint, but if you gotta fork over the dough for Japanese food, why settle for paltry, assembly-line mediocrity? Do yourself a favor and give Mirai a shot. (Note: if you want to sample the fish but aren't ready for the Special, don't get the Sashimi Appetizer. For various reasons they are only so-so; much better to just go for the Assorted Sashimi dinner, the in-between option, or a la carte nigiri plates.)" -- ''From The Discriminating Tapeworm, local food critic (reprinted with permission, posted by ["YoungLandis"])'' </td> <td> <span>+</span> ''2005-08-26'' [[nbsp]] "For quality and variety, Mirai is hands-down the best Japanese place in Davis.

As somebody who has had the great pleasure of visiting Japan , this place is really authentic and is the only place I know of in Davis where one can even order abalone and they also have TORO!! All the negative comments probably come from the "advanced palates" that stand in front of Fuji's at 1030 to get "good, authentic" sushi since Fujis is run and owned by Chinese. I have had most of the sashimi here and have to say you won't find fresher fish outside of the ocean unless in a coastal city.

Fishy smell = NOT FRESH. Service was slow, but it was the girl's first day, so that is understandable. I was more bothered by the fact that they skimp on things like miso soup, wasabi, salad, etc. I had California Rolls that tasted fishy. I don't know if they were cut with a used knife or what, but I couldn't even finish them.

Got a beef teri and some sashimi and CA rolls. Portions were extremely small. I would suggest smaller plates so it doesn't look as obvious. Sashimi was "fishy" smelling, both the tuna and the salmon. Weird streaks on the fish, too. Dry CA rolls. It did seem day old, like in the previous comments.

While you gorge on the raw stuff, there's hot, cooked food for everyone as well. Novices and gourmets will enjoy intricate appetizers such as the Dobinmushi, a mushroom broth served in a teapot, or the Chawan Mushi, a steamed egg dish with morsels of seafood. Vegetarians will want to sample the crisp, refreshing Vegetable Garden rolls, and the adventurous should try out the Ankimo Ponzu (sauteed monkfish liver). Couples, of course, can get all hot and steamy with the Shabu Shabu hotpot for two. But you only want pure, unadulterated raw goodness?

Anyway, obviously I have a high affinity for this joint, but if you gotta fork over the dough for Japanese food, why settle for paltry, assembly-line mediocrity? Do yourself a favor and give Mirai a shot. (Note: if you want to sample the fish but aren't ready for the Special, don't get the Sashimi Appetizer.

Those with discriminating tastes or those who wish to sample authentic, tradtional Japanese dishes can find both really only at Mirai. Indeed, Mirai is more than your ROTM sushi joint: it's actually a "full-service" Japanese restaurant, beyond simple Westernized rolls (some places might as well have a French Fry Roll) and tempura. But before you cynic away at the idea of "authentic dishes" and say sushi is sushi, I remind you the added benefit of the full menu: it's less work convincing your squeamish date to go Japanese food with you. While you gorge on the raw stuff, there's hot, cooked food for everyone as well. Novices and gourmets will enjoy intricate appetizers such as the Dobinmushi, a mushroom broth served in a teapot, or the Chawan Mushi, a steamed egg dish with morsels of seafood. Vegetarians will want to sample the crisp, refreshing Vegetable Garden rolls, and the adventurous should try out the Ankimo Ponzu (sauteed monkfish liver). Couples, of course, can get all hot and steamy with the Shabu Shabu hotpot for two. But you only want pure, unadulterated raw goodness? Well Mirai is still the place, and any sashimi addict must order the Chef's Special, which will leave you lusting for the stuff days after (you'll also realize that Uni elsewhere tastes like crap; plus if you're trying to induct a sushi virgin, you might as well use the best, not some nasty stuff that'll turn them away for life). All this gastronomy finery is served to you in art-like, invitingly-arranged servings, accompanied by a sophisticated but relaxing ambience and greetings from the ultra-friendly owners (who are actually Japanese, which, not to sound prejudiced, should count for something, right?). Mirai's only detraction is its lunch options, which is currently topped by Nobu Hiro (best quality/bargain buffet in Davis) and Moshi Moshi (best quality/bargain bento sets), but if only for pricing and its a very close third. Anyway, obviously I have a high affinity for this joint, but if you gotta fork over the dough for Japanese food, why settle for paltry, assembly-line mediocrity? Do yourself a favor and give Mirai a shot. (Note: if you want to sample the fish but aren't ready for the Special, don't get the Sashimi Appetizer. For various reasons they are only so-so; much better to just go for the Assorted Sashimi dinner, the in-between option, or a la carte nigiri plates.)" -- ''From The Discriminating Tapeworm, local food critic (reprinted with permission, posted by ["YoungLandis"])'' </td> <td> <span>+</span> ''2005-08-26'' [[nbsp]] "For quality and variety, Mirai is hands-down the best Japanese place in Davis.

It’s very clean, and friendly. Try it out. It’s probably the best Japanese restaurant in Davis. They have a great selection of food to choose from too.
