This was our 2nd visit to this location and the 4th or 5th altogether. We both got bento plates, which included miso soup, rice, Japanese salad, tempura, and a choice of 2 entrees. I got teri chicken and tonkatsu, my husband got 2 seafood choices - all were excellent. There is a lot of food on these plates so I... More

Miyo's has long set the standard for me for Japanese restaurants in Hilo. I loved both the food and the ambiance when it was at it's old second floor location, and I appreciated the convenience of parking and access at the new location. However, I have noticed a change in the food over time. First I had to eliminate beef... More

Fast and friendly service, fresh sashimi. Lots of locals here, especially families of multiple generations. Even if you don't like Japanese food, there are many options to make you happy.

We have been to Miyo's several times and have never been disappointed. We visit Hawaii a lot and this is one of our favorite restaurants. The portions are large and the person playing the guitar and singing is great. This restaurant does get crowded and reservations would be advised. Depending on the time of the year you go if the...

This little home style Japanese restaurant is a nice place to have a laid back dinner. I had the Tofu Steak, which I would order again in a heartbeat. They open at 5pm but go a little early because people will already be waiting. The seating is comfy at old wooden tables that seat 4or 2, and they have comfy... More

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 here is pretty good... 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
