Miyabi 9 is located along a row of eateries. Seated at the bar....generous bar table space twice the depth of what one would find in a typical tsukiji shop. Asked for ocha but they didnt have. Was a little surprised at that. Miso soup was ok. Missing the little clams which would have given it umami. Squid salad ,Agedashi tofu... More

We love eating at Miyabi9 when in Des Moines. The tempura is great! Also, especially like the volcano roll. The staff are friendly and the owner often makes his way through the dining area to check on the customers.

We went for lunch. Both of us had the lunch box, and they were both excellent. Really good green tea with lunch too. Very impressed with the whole experience; we both thought this was the best Japanese we'd eaten outside of L.A.

Great Sushi. This is located in the East Village which is not know for spacious area, but inside you will most likely find the owner making excellent sushi and interacting with customers. The best sushi in Des Moines!

The Captain Crunch sushi roll is to die for! Also their spicy mayo (I call it yum yum sauce) is very good - but they are pretty stingy with it. Their volcano roll is so good, to! If you aren't sure if you like sushi, give them a try. They have lunch boxes for less than $10 and you can... More

This is one of the best sushi places in Des Moines. Located in the East Village, Des Moines, I have heard the sushi chef is one of the top ones in the country. I last visited this restaurant in March 2015. The service was great and the atmosphere is nice. Try to get a seat near the window, as it... More
