My family has always enjoyed eating at Mimi's. Their food doesn't seem to be as heavy as the other hibachi area restaurants. The service is always great and we've never had to wait on a table.

The food is good, the service ok. The location is relatively clean but should have some updates so that the environment isn't so dark. Also updates would help compete with other food options on Woodruff.

The chef's cook the food right in front of you on a hibachi. Kid's enjoy it because the chef's put on a show with the cooking utensils--adults enjoy it as well. The food is great and the price is reasonable.

This used to be my favorite restaurant, however over the past couple if years it has really gone downhill. The service is horrible, the tables are cracked and broken, and the floors looked nasty... mimi has really let her businesses go down. So sad when it was once an excellent place to eat and have fun. Even the mimis on... More

Went here for what I though would be a nice Father's Day lunch after church. We got there at 12:40pm were sat immediately which at first glance was great. We waited and waited and waited. At 1:20 I asked our waiter if anyone was planning to come cook for us, he said oh yes sir he's getting his cart ready... More
