Good Japanese restaurant

Meet friends for dinner, its a lovely cosy space, even though it appears crowded, it doesn't feel like it is. We all ordered noodles and the meals came out very quickly. The wait staff were very lovely. Couldn't fault them.

We love this place. Have had numerous lunches there and we regularly have takeaway. The food is amazing, especially their wonderful sushi burgers. Definitely a highlight and "must try". Service is friendly and prompt. They welcome you a soon as you walk in the door. Delicious food, fresh and authentic. Highly recommend.

Good local suburban Japanese. Was very busy the night we went as a famiy - 5 of us for a quick easy Japanese meal. Moderate size servings. Sushi was fresh and good. Tempura prawns were nicely done. We shared about 6 dishes between the 5 of us and that was just adequate. It is BYO which is why I think... More

We have been going here for quite a while and have found the quality consistently excellent but bit expensive. The crab burger is especially good.

Our family has become regulars at Miku since trying this place out a few times last year. "Feel like Japanese tonight? Let us go to Miku." The key factor for authenticity is that the chef and kitchen staff are all Japanese. We love their dragon roll, ox tongue, chawanmushi, and various extra dishes of fish whether raw or cooked.

Has everything you would want in a cafe style Japanese restaurant but gets incredibly busy so plan ahead if you want to eat here most nights.

You can't ask for much more for a Japanese restaurant. Good value and great food. The tempura is my regular dish and it's just brilliant every time.

First time visitors to this local Japanese restaurant and we walked away happy with the food & service. We walked in without a booking and it is no trouble we were seated right away. Very busy for a Tuesday night people coming & going constantly. Extensive menu and we stuck to our favourites gyoza, yakatori chicken, sashimi & sushi, miso... More

The food is the main highlight of this restaurant, good, fresh & well presented. There's "specials of the day" menu, which is well worth a try. Décor is a modern minimalist approach. Service needs to improve. It gets busier towards the end of the week.

Very good food. The service was fine when you could get the wait staffs attention. The atmosphere is very basic and casual. Its a very small restaurant. However I would still recommend it based on the good food.
