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

Their squid and egg plant a little spicy is my favorite. My kids love the tempura soba. There's always something new. The bentos are a great value and lot to eat for $6.50. Go early. Great to take out.

Oishi Japanese food. Hamachi kama is a must. Tempura is delicate and crunchy. Steak was cooked to perfection. Overall a 10 with all the side compliments. Easy to find. Reservations recommended.

Near Big Island Candies, family style Japanese with something for everyone. Serving sizes are large, prices reasonable, $14 for bento lunch that had miso soup, shrimp/vegetable tempura and choice of 2 other entrees (sesame chicken, katsu, teriyaki, tofu and $2 more for seafood - fried scallops etc). Donburi good.

We got invited to a dinner there by a friend who lives in Hilo. The restaurant is in one building a nondescript warehouse-type twin buildings with a parking lot in between. Very pleasant decor inside with friendly service but, really, I don't go for ambiance, I go for flavor. The menu has a good variety of items to choose from... More

I have dined at Miyo's several times in their current "new" location. The food is consistently good. Make reservations to ensure you can get in. The value is excellent for the amount of food you get. Everything I have ever eaten here is delicious. It's BYOB. Last time I tried the seafood yosenabe and I really enjoyed it. I have... More

Another favorite of mine in Hilo. I miss the old location but this one is easier to find if you're new to Hilo. Quintessential "Local-Japanese" food (more "Japanese comfort food" than traditional Japanese cuisine), service can be a bit slow but hey, it's usually packed and it's good. Try any combination plate with the tempura which is always excellent. Reservations... More
