“Excellent food, odd service”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Declares itself to be a Japanese family restaurant, and that is exactly what it appeared to be. very busy, did not look like a touristy crowd on a rainy Monday night, bur the place was jammed. Fresh fish was just great! It took 10 minutes or so to get noticed, waiting to check in, as the hostess was totally manic seating others. Next time, we will make reservations. Server was prompt, pleasant, helpful - but when she pulled our soup spoons out of her tip pocket with loose bills and change, we elected to do without. Atmosphere is very simple. no liquor license, but that was ok. More food than we could finish. We will go back again.

“Bento Box was outstanding”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

First make a reservation in advance. Very busy place! Loved the Sesame Chicken Bento Box. Came with an amazing miso soup and ahi sashimi. Wow was the ahi delicious! Also BYO Beer. Lots of locals and Hilo families dining there which is always a good sign.

“Yes atmosphere is outstanding; just go inside”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

New location much better than expected
Food is, as always, outstanding, & to us it's the most authentic Japanise cuisine on the Big Island
New construction but interior is warm & fresh + bathrooms are new & on the same level
Key word lunch is very reasonable BUT get there early
(some things just don't change)
Been dining @ Miyos for years, very happy they were able to bring their gestalt to this new location, I like their new restaurant better !!!

Stopped here while in Hilo, we had dinner and loved it. My husband loves Japanese food so this has become one of his favorite places!
