Asian FusionSushi

Saturday, November 21, 2015

A few years ago this was one of the best Chinese restaurants in winchester. Once the current owner fully took over, it completely fell apart. Staff is unprofessional and appears there is always drama. Food is entirely hit or miss. We give this place multiple chances, but there is always something wrong with the order, items missing on take out, or some poor excuse as to why something is wrong. Can't believe Mimosa is still in business. — Anonymous Reviewer

On Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, my daughter and I had lunch at the Mimosa Restaurant, 202 Grocery Avenue, in the Food Lion Shopping Center at the intersection of Greenwood and Senseny Roads east of Winchester. Formerly the Mimosa Asian Fusion Restaurant, which opened in December 2008, it is now simply the Mimosa Restaurant and under new management.

Hours are Sunday-Thursday, 11:00 AM-9:30 PM; Friday & Saturday, 11:00 AM-10:30 PM. The phone number is (540) 545-8482; delivery and pickup are available. The Web site is http://www.mimosa-llc.com/.

Entry is through a vestibule to a cashier's station, and along the right wall a long, padded bench offers seating if you need to wait. Further back along the right wall is an L-shaped bar with seven stools.

A divider between the bar area and the dining room is topped with a series of large lighted aquariums, visible from both sides. It has high-rise tables and chairs next to it on the bar side, and other tables are also here.

The dining room has four booths along its side of the divider with the aquariums. A sushi bar in the back is equipped with five chairs, and tables are located around the floor.

The front of the room and the left side have floor to ceiling windows, giving the room a light and airy appearance. A door on the right opens out onto an enclosed concrete patio with black iron furniture with umbrellas over the tables.

Decorations include two statues of Chinese soldiers and Oriental art here and there on the walls. The floor covering is large tan vinyl squares, and the open ceiling exposes the roof superstructure, which is black. Lighting is by strings of small cylindrical lamps hanging down from the ceiling. Unobtrusive music can be heard.

The regular menu's categories are Fusion Appetizers, Traditional Appetizers, Soups, Sides, Vegetables, Rice/Noodles, Sides/Vegetables, Salads, Traditional Dishes, Fusion Dishes, Favorite Dishes, Gluten-Free Dishes, Children's Menu, $6 Lunch Specials, and Beverages. A separate menu lists the Sushi offerings.

My daughter ordered Seasoned Pork Dumplings from the Appetizer Menu, and Coconut Shrimp Tempura from the Fusion Dishes Menu. This was Batter-fried Shrimp and Fried Banana, with Coconut Milk.

I chose Honey-Ginger Glazed Shrimp from the Traditional Dishes Menu with Fried Rice. The serving sizes were generous, and we each asked for a go-box for leftovers. The Mimosa is on my keeper list.

My daughter and I were the only dining room patrons during our entire stay, but there were two customers in the bar area. This shopping center actually has four restaurants; the other three are Subway at 210 Grocery Avenue, Castiglia's next door at 212 Grocery Avenue, and McDonald's at 222 Grocery Avenue.

Unfortunately Mimosa is no longer as good as they use to be - I had ordered to go Kung Pao Chicken with extra peanuts and sushi - It use to be packed full of chicken now I was lucky to get half the amount of chicken I use to and if they had actually added extra peanuts I couldn't tell - very disappointing. — Anonymous Reviewer

Changed owners and chefs. No longer worth going here. — Anonymous Reviewer

No Thanks Mimosa. Their sushi chef needs some serious training. I would compare his skills to sandwich making skills. I can definitely tell the difference from frozen fish from the freeze fish, to top it off, it must have been sitting in the sink waiting to be defrosted for much too long. We order a salmon roll and a spicy tuna roll. The roll was poorly done, and fell apart immediately when I try to pick it up, and the fish has this fishy smell to it. I didn't want to order too much sushi, and it was a wise decision after witnessing their simple rolls. Nothing disguises me more than unskilled mininum wage sushi chef destroying my sushi. Needly to say, I will not go back to this place again. — Anonymous Reviewer

This restaurant has been 'hit and miss" lately. Great food last time we visited but take out the other night was dull and bland. Ordered food to be spicy but no spice to be found anywhere in any of the entrees we ordered. One entree was way too salty and could not be eaten. Loved their food before but can't afford to try it again. — Anonymous Reviewer

Food was excellent! My husband and I went one Friday night, and our waitress was so incredibly nice! They gave us far more sashimi than any other place in Winchester for a great price. We will definitely go back! — Anonymous Reviewer

We have eaten here a few times before in the past and the food was decent but the last two times the food has been excellent. We ordered takeout last night and the price, portions, and quality are as good as you will find in Winchester. We will definitely go back. — Anonymous Reviewer

My girlfriend and I went to Mimosa for lunch this afternoon. We have been there numerous times in the past, but this was my first time going there since it changed management. The food was excellent as always. I got my favorite, the citrus glazed chicken and wonton soup. Both were delicious. My girlfriend got the pho, which is something they are now serving on Sundays only. She loves pho and Mimosa's version was delicious. We will be making this a regular place for Sunday lunch so she can get the pho. The service was very good and our waitress was very friendly. The new manager also came and talked to us as well, and was greatly interested in our opinion of the food. Definitely worth going here if you want quality asian cuisine. — Anonymous Reviewer

Mimosa is a really good place to eat, but because of that service can be a problem- even for pick up meals. Their was a wait time of an hour for a pick up meal last Friday night... — Anonymous Reviewer
