One of Auntie's favorites, so we all went. Reservations are highly recommended. This is a casual, family oriented Japanese restaurant. The decor is great, live entertainment (a mellow guitar player) perfect and the food was excellent with generous portions. I have no idea of the bill as Auntie snatched it out of my hand.

This place has been there sinc they built up the building a few years ago, but I never went there till my wife was hungry for Japanese. We got there at 12 on Sunday, at the peak of busyness, but got seated quickly and service was prompt. I had the vegetable tempura...wow, wish I could go there every day! Eggplant,... More

Everything you could want from American Japanese food. Wait time was quick and staff was excellent. Located close to the airport

This is my local friend recommended. We met and ate lunch here. The lunch we ordered are: Cold Tofu $11.75, Vegetable tempura $11.75 & Sauteed Eggplant $11.75. They all tested light and delicious. The take-out lunch box only $6.50. This is a very reasonable price for the lunch at Hilo HI.

We visited this place for lunch... Yikes! It's just not clean, walking in, our shoes stuck to the floor and the wooden tabletop very sticky! We ordered tempura and bento box, hardly edible. We ate very little of our meal...Cost us $30. No one even asked why we didn't eat our meal. Very disappointing.

Miyos is an excellent place to dine while in Hilo. It will satisfy the taste buds of locals & tourists alike, and its inexpensive. It sits right in the center of town and dress is informal. The food, the preparation - what can I say. Its great. Looking forward to my next trip there. (by the way reservations would help)

The old location was better but this one is great too. Food has always been good, sesame chicken though, is the best by far! This is a very Asian/local fusion type of restaurant. Always crowded, family working there, always a warm vibe, even if not very attentive.

If you like Japanese food, Miyo's is good. My only complaint is that the service isn't great. They just take your order and bring it to you when it's ready, no schmoozing included.

We have been coming here for over 25 years, when it was in the original Waiakea Villas. The ambiance was so unique,and the Japanese food excellent. The new place does not match the old ambiance, but the food & service is still the same quality. They have great dinner music to accompany the meal. You can BYOB, no bottle charge,... More
