“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We are a Japanese couple who always seek real Japanese food when we travel. We visited this restaurant based on other's review. The entrance was hard to find. the interior is very modern. We ordered Omakase sashimi and lunch combo with which you can select Omakase sushi.
I ate lobster sashimi for the first time and it was so delicious. It worth to try, if you like sashimi and/or lobster. Everything we tasted was absolutely delicious. highly recommended!

“Very fresh and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

When visiting Portland we decided to dine there for lunch after having it recommended to us. We had the daikon salad (surprisingly quite different and very delicious) and the 7-piece nigiri (the fish was very fresh and delicately prepared). The staff was very attentive and friendly. Although the food was very good, having eaten top-notch sushi in Manhattan for the past 7 years, I don’t see what all of the hype around Miyaki is about. The whole time I was there I was dying to ask the server what made Miyaki get noticed on Bon Appetite’s 2012 Top Ten New Sushi Restaurants in America List? If it was a particular dish, I would have liked to try it, but if it was simply the sushi-it was very fine and elegantly served but nothing to schedule your day or trip around if you have top grade sushi readily available to you at home.

“Mediocre experiene. Missed details”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Walked in to restaurant for lunch...asked for window table but were seated at uncomfortable bar seats. The table we requested remained open throughout our visit. Ordered from menus (covered with stains. Yuck) and told what I ordered wasn't available til after 5:30 pm. ( So why do they hand that menu out at lunch? ) My husband asked for cup of tea...it's only available by the pot for two. ..
Food was fine but nothing special. Not inexpensive for what it is. Service was pleasant.
Plenty of other places to go in Portland that pay more attention to what works for customers though rather than what works for the owners. Ed won't bother to go back

“Fantastic meals and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We found this Japanese with a European savor, was amazing and delicious. We tried a number of dishes and each was exceptional in it's own right. Can't recommend this highly enough, and we may even be willing to drive the 4+ hours just to have dinner here again!

“Service was top notch. Food was excellent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

Miyake server Jessica was amazing she was extremely educated on all food and accurate described the taste experience. My husband ordered the 5 course sampler with sake pairing. It did not disappoint. Every course was excellent and cooked to perfection. I ordered the tuna roll and hamakyi. Tuna roll was unique and original with almonds and an awesome spicy mayo sauce with bean sprouts. It was a bit pricey but you get what you pay for and the food was well worth it!
