Cool Zen-Vibe!

The food and the staff are great. It is a lovely atmosphere with a clearly Japanese zen vibe...really cool. Nice saki and beer selection, too!

The food was really good and the lunch box was a fair price. I appreciated the fresh sushi and the good service. I will definitely be back.

One of our family's local favorites, Miyuki Restaurant is a top choice for excellent Japanese cuisine. Wonderful selection, prepared with a proud attention to detail, and super tasty entree's, this family run restaurant is 'par excellance' with a very attentive wait staff. Not to be missed.

Loved their generous serving of shrimp tempura perfectly done. Salad has nice dressing miso soup delicious. My neighbor loves their salted fish and her mom likes the beef sukiyaki. Great service excellent food, sushi bar. Bento box lunch specials two items of your choice $9.99, three for $12.99. My shrimp tempura dinner was $14.99 with 7 giant shrimp. Nice atmosphere.... More

I want to reiterate what other reviewers have written -- how odd that such a nice little restaurant is in such an off-the-beaten-path location, especially since a major tourist hub (Santa Cruz) is not that far away. But that makes this restaurant all the more charming. I've been there twice, over the space of a year, and enjoyed both times... More

Authentic & delicious Japanese cuisine. The small hard working staff serves food perfectly prepared. I like to get a couple of appetizers, gyoza and the pickled cucumbers plus some sushi, then maybe tonkatsu or donburi. Often gets crowded on weekends, we go early to accomdate my (Japanese) mother in law who doesn't even look at the menu, she just orders... More

This is by far the best Japanese food in Watsonville! It is also a local institution, having been around for over 40 years. The place is usually packed, always a good sign!

A very authentic Japanese restaurant tucked away in Watsonville. This was confirmed by it being quite busy. It was still only a short wait for a table despite turning up without a booking. The owner was busy on his sushi knife all night chopping all sushi and sashimi up fresh to order. Great friendly service and great pricing.

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 sushi, tempura and a lot of other types... More
