This is the best Japanese in the Lexington KY area. Great atmosphere. The food is excellent. Family dining at its best.

I had dinner here on a Saturday evening in Octobe 2013 on the hibachi side. I ordered the hibachi steak. The chef was ok, it was the usual show. The food wasn't awful but it wasnt good either. The steak was fine and cooked as ordered. The salal at the begining of the meal was just bagged lettuce with some weak runny orange dressing. I figured it wasn't a salad place so it had to get better. The soup served next was just plain weird with a chemical like taste and a slice of mushroom and onion sliver. Then came the main course. It has no flavor, no spices nothing just bland rice and steak. I asked for hot sauce just to so it would have some flavor. The entire table agreed-something was left out of the cooking process. It needed spices and flavor, really disappointing due to the bill for 4 being over a 100 dollars with the gratuity already added in. I would not recommend this place at all.

My family of 4 loves Miyako! Very fresh, always great service and amazing food. We sit on the sushi side, but going to the restroom puts us walking through the hibachi side and its quite entertaining.

Kids always get the chicken teriyaki, and always clean their plates. The miso soup is perfect and the salad is just right. Tempura is wonderful here as well.

Hubby and I always get nigiri (salmon, smoked salmon, yellowtail, tuna, eel) and have recently fallen in love with the Avocado Tower. It is now a staple!!

,this restaurant has a nice atmosphere. the chefs are fun if you catch food in your mouth give you a shot of sake. the sushi is excellent in the chefs are fairly quick about bringing it to your text. go a little early in the evening so that you can be sure to get the best service. good value for the money.

The restaurant has great service, the staff is very prompt and helpful. We sat at the bar which was a nice experience, the chefs were very nice and seemed happy to be doing their job. I have ate at many sushi places across the country and this wasn't my favorite, but to be so far away from the ocean, the food tasted as good as it can be. The miso soup is very rich and the fried cheese roll was my favorite (its like a crab rangoon but creamier). The decor is a bit dark but has sort of an authentic feel to it. Overall the sushi part was good....but don't expect great.
