A very special meal with food preparations you won't find anywhere else in Portland. I don't think it's the "best sushi" in Portland… The fish is fresh and expertly prepared, but I know one place I would rather go for sushi. That being said, the Japanese cuisine here is elevated and elegant. We ordered an Omakase meal and a 4... More

We were wanting Japanese food, and this restaurant turned out to be perfect. It was steamy warm on a very cold night, filled with customers obviously enjoying the food. We shared 4 small plates so we cold have a variety of foods and they were all excellent. We finished by sharing a bowl of low broth miso soup with many... More

This is my first time coming to Portland ME. My Japanese friend recommended Miyake and to be honest this is THE BEST BEST Japanese restaurant I have ever tasted in America. I have been living in US for 16 years and Miyake is by far the best!!!!! Everything I tried "Bento Box" was fantastic. The miso soup is out of... More

I came here for a birthday and am sad I have never come sooner. I had honestly thought it would be like any other sushi I have had, just your standard rolls with a nice atmosphere and maybe higher grade fish. Wow was I wrong. This is sushi unlike any I have had before, the whole experience from walking in... More

We had the omakase and sake pairing. So delicious and succulent. Standouts: the oyster in dashi, the duck breast, the toro, and the lobster sashimi. For dessert, chocolate pudding with miso caramel cream. Fabulous.

We recently went for lunch and for $10 enjoyed the choice of two types of rolls (8 actual rolls served) and Miso soup. I thought the soup was exceptional. We added the edamame side - lightly salted and delicious. A glass of very good wine topped off an excellent lunch. I do not frequent Japanese restaurants so I asked my... More

We went to the flagship restaurant on Fore Street. Very sophisticated, perfectly done. We each had the chef's tasting menu with some similar and some different dishes. We both had the seafood over sushi rice. My husband's was slightly different so it could be gluten free.(They were very accommodating. (Thank goodness tamari has no wheat!) He had the black cod...
