“Great value”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

We walked in and ordered takeout. When we got home, we prepped plates and enjoyed very fresh sushi & sashimi. The quantity of food was great. We recommend their Japanese food. Very good!

“Best food and service you will ever encounter”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Repeat visitor, the food is just phenomenal and service is great. I chose the Hibachi Grill both times and it was well worth it. Food is cooked before you with a show to boot. If you have a good table of people, that dining experience is dynamite.

“Tasty, affordable and fun!”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

This is the "fun" Japanese restaurant in Wilkes-Barre. The hibachi chefs are more animated than the other chefs in the area. So, if you're looking for more of a "party" atmosphere as opposed to "conservative' this is the restaurant to go to. Especially for celebrations. The whole staff gets into it. They also have a room which I've dubbed the "party room". It's great for surprise parties (which I've used on 2 occasions) or small get-togethers. The room seats 18-20 and they have 2 grills and usually 2 hibachi chefs. What I liked most about it is...they don't charge you to rent the room and if you go at lunch time...you get the lunch prices. How can you beat that? The food is great, the service fantastic and the amount of food you get, even at lunch, is super affordable. Love it here!

“Standard experience”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

This is where the old Top Dog used to be in the Pine mall. Mirakuya has been in Wilkes Barre a long time now and it offers a decent experience. Hibachi has plenty of teriyaki included, no need to add anything sodium wise and the portion is large. They do offer half-decent sushi also. Overall it’s just ordinary.
Food = 2.5/5 (standard)
Price = 2.5/5 (typical)
Service = 2.5/5 (average)
Atmosphere = 2.5/5 (normal)
Overall = 2.5 out of 5 stars

“The Best in NEPA”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

I have been eating Japanese food since the Robota was open in Scranton about 25 years ago. I have been to all the local Japanese places like Katana, the Clark Summit one, the new one by the arena and Mirakuya has the best service, sushi, and food. Everytime I go there the owner brings me over a tsing tao beer becuase we are regulars. They are very freindly although you have the language barrier with almost the whole staff becuase they are all Chinese not Japanese. The Hibatchi performance/show is the best I have ever had which includes Japanese throughout the country - MD, OH, FL etc.

Love the filet and the shrimp hibatchi and the pepper tuna and mountain top roll - yum!

Great place with great food and service - but, if you have a decent size group 4 or more and don't have reservations on Thur/Frid/Sat night expect to wait and then also expect them to try and turn the hibatchi table over and offer you a drink at the bar. They are in business to make money and unless you are spending it they need to get another seating going asap.

Lunch is just as good and much cheaper - fyi.
