Mikado 23’s storefront in Wayne.
In the past, I’ve written about other Asian-style buffet restaurants in New Jersey, such as Minado, in Little Ferry. Recently a new Asian buffet and hibachi restaurant — the similarly named Mikado 23 — has opened in Wayne, near the Willowbrook Mall and the recently closed Wayne Town Center, which may or may not open in the future if the economy pulls out of its current recession.

Like Minado, Mikado 23 features a very large selection of Sushi/Cold and hot items, all of which are of a surprisingly high quality. Mikado 23 is different from Minado in that the owners are Chinese/Vietnamese and Chinese/Indonesian and focus on the hot items is clearly of a Chinese/Indonesian bent rather than Korean. The restaurant also has a separate Hibachi area with griddle tables, but they are considered separate dining experiences and are paid for separately. We haven’t had a chance to try their Hibachi yet.

My first plate. Here we’ve got a spicy tuna/pineapple poke salad, sushi rolls, seaweed salad, edamame salad, cooked Japanese spinach sesame salad, bacon wrapped scallops, salt and pepper fried shrimp, shrimp paste fried crab claws and Indonesian stir fried shrimp.
Mikado 23 appears to be a popular destination for birthday celebrations. If someone is having a birthday, the “Disco Ball” in the main dining room goes off and the staff all come over to sing you Happy Birthday. This appears to happen at least several times per hour.

Mikado 23 also has very good Dim Sum/Dumpling items.
More seafood including raw oyster/clams, cooked salmon filet, tempura vegetables and chicken, jumbo prawns with mayonnaise sauce, and tuna sashimi.

Some of the meat dishes including beef short ribs and beef teriyaki.
Like Minado, Mikado 23 features a dessert bar with ornate-looking cakes and cookies.
This is a gelatinous dessert made from young coconut, I believe.
