Japanese food in downtown Watsonville.

If you are looking for an authentic, casual and family-friendly Japanese restaurant, then you should look at the Miyuki Restaurant. Located on E. Lake Avenue, it is a fun, delicious and "family" oriented restaurant. It is not for a Prom date, or formal night on the town. But it is good for... read more

Watsonville is one of the dreariest towns I have seen and Miyuki is almost the only reason to even come here. All the sushi is good -- I did not try anything else -- but there is no "picture menu" so it is not always easy to know what you are getting. The freshness, flavor, variety and quality are all...

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant. The food is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is well worth the wait because they are always busy. The scallop dynamites are a MUST and I really like the katsu don or tonkatsu. Never had a bad meal there. They set the bar high because I have tried other Japanese... More

Always crowded, that's your first clue. Abundant and delicious, fair price. They do take-out really well, also. Love Miyuki!

I compare every sushi place I go in the whole country to this place. The fish is fresh and melts in your mouth. My favorites are the dynamite mussels, tempura shrimp, any nigiri and of course the pajaro roll. Chief is a great guy, the servers are very friendly and the sake is hot while the beet is cold. We...

We live in Aptos and were going to be in Watsonville so we looked on Trip Advisor and found that Miyuki rated #4. We hadn't had Japanese in awhile so thought we'd give this place a try. It is Friday night and we arrived a bit before 8pm. The place was packed and we had to wait about 15 minutes... More

I don't live in the Watsonville area so when passing through last night I relied on T.A. for something different. I do love Japanese food and used to work in a fish processing plant years ago. I know when fish is fresh, This restaurant is worth the stop. I had clam soup, hot sake, spicy CA roll, and three kinds... More
