Nice lunch

We met a friend from Hilo after the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival here for lunch. We haven't seen her in a couple of years and she recommended this restaurant when we said we wanted to have japanese food for lunch. This restaurant opened around 11:00 am and we were there right at that time. The food... read more

Service was excellent and the food exceeded my expectation for portion and presentation. It satisfied my belly very much and now my husband can't wait to go back to order the same thing! Thanks for your amazing service!

This place is very popular with the locals. If weather permits, choose a two-seat table outside to avoid indoor crowd and noise. Service? Very good. My wife ordered the eggplant appetizer which she really liked but I thought was missing a little "zing" in the flavors. My lunch Bento combo included shrimp tempura, rice, miso soup, and I opted for... More

First time checking this place out....wanted to like it more than I did. Super busy when we got there....be sure to make reservations for dinner. Menu is complicated and extensive, no pictures and not much description. We ordered the pupu special which had eggplant, fried oysters, poke, and fried tofu. Everything was tasty, but the dinner went downhill after that.... More

I live here and have been to the older Miyo's and although it wasn't the best Japanese cuisine in town, we went there on occasion and it was passable. Until my niece found a roach in her salad. Ugh, it was gross. But as the restaurant moved to the newer location, we decided to go and it was again.. passable.... More

Stopped at Island Candies across the street then came here. Waitress was in hurry and not friendly. Food came quick. Just not the best. I am not going to go back.

Miyo's was recommended by our host in Hawaii and we were grateful! They serve authentic Japanese food that's fresh and prepared wonderfully. I had the fish of the day done in tempura batter and it was yummy! My husband had the tempura shrimp and said it was fantastic. They can get quite crowded so try and do your dining in... More

Miyo's has been one of my favorite Hilo restaurants for years. The food is always fresh and consistent, prices reasonable, and I appreciate them keeping their BYO policy all these years. Great music and all the new wood furniture puts Miyo's over the top. Hilo's best option for dinner.

On a hot day in Hawaii, the cross-current ventilation in Miyo's was most welcome as we waited (and waited) for our meal. Everything is cooked to order, so don't go there if you're in a big hurry. The food was, however, well worth waiting for. I'm a sucker for miso soup, and theirs is delicious. The shrimp and vegetable tempura... More
