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

Everything is fresh, beautifully prepared and delicious. I have been eating here for 30+ years and other than being a tittle noisy from people having fun and conversing in the open room format, it's my favorite place to eat and all of my family, including children, enjoy it as well. Most nights, about half the patrons are of Japanese extraction,... More

I'm traveling solo on business and wanted simple good food. On a Sunday night at 8:00 the small restaurant was full although there was no wait. This place feels like an unpretentious country restaurant in Japan. It is not particularly low priced but the quality is very high. I ordered Chirashi so got a wide range of seafood. Everything is...

As someone who loves to eat sushi, Miyuki always puts a smile on my face. Small, family-operated and friendly, Miyuki has been a Watsonville institution for many, many years (20, 30, 40?). I know some Santa Cruz sushi lovers who regularly drive 20 miles to eat here because of the outstanding quality, freshness, taste and vibe. The Gyoza is served... More
