The kaukau here is so ONOLICIOUS. If you haven't eaten here at Miyo's Restaurant yet you should really stop by and give it a try. The wait staff is friendly and they deliver your food in a timely fashion. Awesome place. They deserve all five stars..

Haven't eaten here since PreCovid times. Reservations were made, but our wait time was still 20 minutes. They were short staffed so the food took almost an hour to come although our service was excellent! Our server was attentive, apologetic and kind. Food was more than tasty and hit just right on a Friday night. Making a Reservation ... read more

Review #8 for 2021. An update on my review because it's been 9 years, and Miyo's moved to Manono Marketplace. Food is still awesome, and they've been great through the pandemic with outdoor seating, tables spaced apart inside, and a takeout window. Miyo's is one of the only places that my 66-year-old mom has gone out to eat at during ... read more

Miyo's always has such delicious food, and everyone's always so nice and friendly--however, Chelsie and the kitchen staff were amazing today.

I had a bento box with teriyaki chicken and sesame chicken. I split Poke with a friend (who had the salad special). I'm not big on Poke but this was excellent. The teriyaki chicken is the best I've ever had. The sesame chicken was okay-- a little too much nut flavor for me. Nevertheless, I'm coming back.

Back again in Hilo. Very good service and experience. Recommend making an early reservation at 5:30pm. 6:30pm at the latest. Anytime after that it could be so busy that you could be waiting for your food a long time. May be different now because of Covid.

A great option for social distancing meals! I ordered using free delivery through Express Waiters from Miyo's - my food arrived delicious and steaming hot via no contact delivery. Just as good as in person, my meal was well packaged with silverware and the noodles came separately to preserve texture!
