Although I have lived in New Haven for several years, this was my first time eating at this restaurant. I wish I had discovered the restaurant earlier. My friend and I decided to try the adventure menu that gave us the opportunity to try almost everything on the menu. I have to say this was a wonderful experience. The ingredients... More

We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into when we decided to eat here. The service is great, and the food is delicious and unique. I ate wax worms with the potatoes curls and crickets in a roll! Never thought I would say that worms and crickets are delicious... For such different experience price was just right. I'm definitely... More

This is such a special concept using invasive creatures & plants for sashimi & sushi plus using sustainable seafood, as we all should. Read about this spot in a magazine, then read much more. Knew we'd be in the vicinity on vacation, so we HAD to detour a little to try this. It was everything we imagined & much more.... More

I went to Miya's with a Groupon deal that gave us a meal with sake samples. I think the deal was totally worth it (the review by gcardill explains the courses well). Overall, the food was good and unique. I don't think it was outstanding, but it was fun, for sure. My husband and I like raw fish and rice... More

If you have the time to read and explore a menu the size of a large format children's book you will be surprised by what you read. There is a good story about ecology and sustainability that goes with many of their offerings. and such interesting tastes. It is unheard of for my wife and me to go to the... More

I went to Miya's sushi for dinner last night after a long time. I knew they had changed the menu and did not know what to expect. I went with a Groupon for a dinner of two and 16-course sushi. It was absolutely one of the best dining experience I have ever had. They really care about the food they... More

My husband and I were in New Haven teaching a workshop at Yale and wanted to get together with friends we hadn't seen in a while who lived in the area. Since we had never been to Yale, we asked for a recommendation and our friend Brian made reservations for us all at Miya's. As soon as you walk in... More

I've been coming here for 10 years, starting when I lived down the block. In that time the menu has changed, but the quality has not. Be warned, this is NOT a place to come for the dishes you get everywhere else (eg. California rolls, tuna, salmon). Miya's has always pushed the boundaries of expected flavor combinations- in all the... More

Where do I even begin? This place is a gem. All the ingredients are local and the chef is truly an artist. The miso soup is the best I've ever had and the sushi as well. The menu includes a lot of great information and you'll quickly notice how great the prices are too. If I could give this place... More

We came here for my son's birthday and the staff were very attentive and caring. We enjoyed the Japanese style tapas portions and the range of unusual creations, including some made with peanut butter. They boast being the home of "weird sushi" and they are correct. I truly enjoyed the fried chicken appetizer, although I would have preferred it to... More
