Restaurant Miwa is in the back corner of a strip mall in Hilo. The food is really great and the staff is wonderful. It is worth the effort to find this restaurant. It is usually full of local folks enjoying the food.

It's in a strip mall and that is the only downside. The food was good and I loved the black seaweed salad. Service was good too. We also ate at Ocean Sushi but I thought Miwa was much better

I went to Miwa for the first time tonight, just moved here one week ago, and was really impressed. When we first entered we were welcomed and shown to our table, and asked what were wanted to drink. Gave us time to look at the menu and then we ordered the deluxe menu where you can order three thinks plus... More

I shouldn't have eaten so much but I wasn't about to leave a morsel of my delicious dinner! I made a reservation for three, which may not have been necessary because the restaurant was not full. Almost immediately after being seated our waitress, dressed in a beautiful kimono, came to ask for beverage orders. I ordered a large Sapporo Beer... More

Every entry I've tried is great. Some of the specials are outstanding. Prices are reasonable. The service is excellent and the place is quiet and comfortable. This is an out of sight (in the Hilo Shopping Center) treasure.

This is a good restaurant with good service and good food. I recommend them for almost anything on the menu because they do it well. There are no inspired dishes so expect good comfort food, not gourmet. Worth your while.

We were taken to a table right away, ordered quickly. The sushi took longer than expected, but when we got it, it was fresh and good. Service was good. Overall a good experience.

It was a good sign that this place was full and the fact that I think everyone there on a Saturday night was Japanese (or al least Asian) and I was the only Caucasian. We each had fresh fish. One of us had several sushi dishes (spicy tuna roll, salmon skin hand roll, dark dragon roll, and soft crab roll)... More

Despite arriving 10 minutes before the lunch closing time, the service was courteous and helpful. The restaurant is obviously family owned and the decor is quite charming. My wife and I split 4 sushi rolls and a tempura appetizer. The food was all fantastic though their sushi roll selection is fairly limited (probably 12 - 15 rolls on the menu).... More
