Crowded with locals and for a very good reason: It's good.

Real good. Don't let the crowd scare you away. This place is worth the wait (or you can make reservations). The menu is large, the service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. My ahi sashimi was the best I've had in Hilo.

First, the food is good for the price you pay. I'd given the food 4.5-5. It's a very popular place with the locals so reservations is recommended. The issues are no air conditioning (3 stars) and tables are too close together (3 stars). If you want a private conversation you'd better whisper. Because normal conversation will be heard. Try the... More

We were looking for a good restaurant on the way to the airport and we certainly found it. Everything was fresh and tasty. The service was excellent!

A bit disappointed. Waiter indicated butterfish was a flat mild fish, but it was served as "steaks" cut and full of bones. I would never order this again and it was expensive. We did not get the soup that was listed to come with our meals. Part of party never got the salads listed as coming with their meal. The... More

Some friends that live in Hilo took us to this restaurant after some sightseeing, and boy were we impressed! We had to wait about fifteen minutes for a late lunch on a Saturday, but it was worth it! There were a variety of options on the menu, and everyone in our party enjoyed what they ate! The only improvement to... More

When visiting family in Hilo this is a "must" place for dinner. Great Japanese and local food. Large restaurant so even if there is a line it moves quickly.

We were not expecting to have such a wonderful home cooked Japanese food as we had at Miyo's. The fresh broiled ahi tuna, and the tempura are to die for!!! The miso soup is so far the best one that I have had and the udon soup was good... Don't judge the book by its cover and try this place!!!

I have eaten at this restaurant for years and it never disappoints me. The good is great and price is very reasonable. I love their tempura - very crispy and delicious. Try to order a combo plate, Grilled Salmon plate or Sesame Chicken/Tempura plate.
