This is an unusual restaurant with truly unique offerings of food and drink. Care and pride are evident in the ingredients and service.

I don't like sushi that much but I loved this! Maybe the reason is the menu tells the story of all the food, source, environmental impact, benefits. There is also a LOT of non-sushi sushi, stuff that is presented like sushi but is actually not, or at least not anything the Japanese would recognize. Plenty to eat for those with... More

I am a Japanese and this is my second try at a sushi restaurant in New Haven. I think the restaurant is better described as serving American cuisine inspired by sushi. And, if so understood, the meal is fine.

A friend of ours visiting from NYC grabbed a few us on a Sunday afternoon and hauled us off to Miya's for sushi-a tall order as we are all vegetarians. We got lucky as it was New Haven's restaurant week, so there was a Prix Fixe vegetarian lunch menu meaning no thinking required, though one of our party ordered off... More

You've got to love restaurants that have been around long enough to have eras. I have loved all the era's at Miya's, but the current one is my favorite. The food is art and activism...and tasty...all at the same time, but that has been the case for awhile. The new thing at this fantastic restaurant is that the service and... More

I adore Japanese food, but when I became vegan, I assumed I'd be stuck forever with miso soup, seaweed salad, and the ubiquitous boring veggie roll that all sushi places have. Not so at Miya, where one wildly inventive vegan item after another showed up in front of me when I went there during restaurant week and accepted the prix... More

This place was a major disappointment. It was very much the vegan type crowd and very little raw fish to be seen. I went with a Japanese colleague and we soon both realized this was going to be a short visit. It was we had a couple of dishes, paid and left to go to an actual sushi place about... More

After reading all the wonderful reviews and looking at the interesting and varied menu online, we were very excited to try Miya. A group of 8 of us went for a late lunch during the week. We called ahead and were told we didn't need a reservation for a party of that size, and indeed a large table was already... More

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
