Miyako used to please. Now Miyako staff sit in the back yapping while your dish is prepared, not to order, and for a slow day, to be missing many items from the menu, to be told when brought to your table instead of immediately, made for a lacklustre meal, and service. Only the quality of the Saba makes this review... More

At first glance, this restaurant seems like any other sushi restaurant. However, once you've had a first taste of the tuna special (which does not appear on the menu...) you will see the difference. The tuna is a crusted and seared slices of tuna served on a delicious, creamy and slightly spicy peanut sauce. It is to die for. I... More

This was my last dinner at Miyako. Everything that was served tonight seemed to be a pale copy of a long forgotten past. Not in my list of favorites anymore!

This review is mostly based on the very last moment experience; I made the semi-conscious yet very personal choice of not giving any tips - and I have slaved in the service industry and I felt and sweat drop - and the waiter came out and yelled at us that we did not pay any tips! Our bill was close... More

We ordered a wide variety of items, most of which were decent: the amaebi (sweet shrimp) sashimi melted in the mouth, and the uni (sea urchin) tasted quite fresh, although I was unimpressed by the overcooked soft-shell crab. The service was brusque and our waitress seemed stressed even though the restaurant was only half full. The other diners had all... More

Great place, nice decoration, a little over priced but it's worth it. If u go u MUST have the tuna special, I don't know what's in the sauce but it is delicious. I also recommend the pizza Miyako and the Montreal roll. Be patient, service is not as good as it should be and waiters are somehow rude but the... More

A friend and I met for dinner here before seeing a concert at Olympia. The variety of the menu was appealing, and the sushi was well seasoned and delicious. We shared about 6 different rolls, and they were all tasty. The salmon sashimi was great too. Service was so-so. We waited slightly too long to get the check, nonetheless the... More

This was my second visit to Miyako. The food is really very delicious. Their tuna special is a must-try. On my first visit, I didn't know about the tuna, but noticed that every single other table had ordered it. Oddly, this very popular dish isn't on the menu at all. The sushi rolls were tasty, the nigiri was melt-in-your mouth... More

I've heard good things of the other locations, but the Mikado located on St-Denis is one pricy disapointment. Nothing authentic about this sushi place: just a more expensive price tag. Sushi was very boring, not very tasty, and some of the fish was just plain suspiscious. A disapointment.
