A pleasant, well-rounded Japanese dining experience

Momoyaki is a Japanese restaurant on SW 34th Street in Gainesville (it sits between 34th and Archer). It's slightly hidden as it sits in the back part of a larger building, so you'll want to look for the sign along the road (especially if you're heading east).

Tucked in a little out of the way storefront Momoyaki provides Korean, Japanese and sushi dishes without equal. I've returned again and again since "discovering" this gem sampling chicken, seafood and soups. Fantastic!

This is the second time we have eaten at Momoyaki, and it was good enough both times that I felt the need to write a review. No one in my party has had the sushi when I went, so I can't attest to the quality of that, but their Korean dishes are excellent. I tried the boolgogi and the bibimbap... More

Me and my friends love to eat here, their grilled food actually taste like its from a grill and not just premade. The sushi is average compared to some other restaurants but Momo has very good prices. Me and my father love to eat here during lunch specials. I would recommend the chicken Teriyaki for those who are eating there... More

I've had the sushi here a couple times and it is so-so. There are at least 3 other places within a 2 mile radius of this place that serve substantially better sushi (Mahzu, Matsuri and Miya)...why so many 'M's? I dont' know. The place is clean and neat, but with a blah atmosphere. Service was fairly good and the lunch... More

We used to go here all the time because it was affordable and the food was really good. You would order at the counter and they would bring you your food. They changed the dining style, making it more of a sit down order at the table style and raised the prices dramatically. We stopped going because it was the... More

Great restaurant with the food prepared at your table by a Japanese chef. The food preparation is most entertaining complete with a flambeed onion as part of the veggie prep. Quality and quantity of food were excellent as were the service and atmosphere. I look forward to returning.

Let's start with the long ride from Tallahassee to Miami. Add the head-cold from Hell. I was not in the best mood and I just wanted something hot in my belly to get me to our stopping point, Orlando, still hours away. The reviews we read were promising but not glowing. We pulled off of the highway and searched for... More

Great food. Whether you are in the mood for sushi, rice/noodle bowls, or traditional korean/japanese cuisine Momoyaki has something to hit your spot. Also, the miso soup is some of the best I've ever had.
