Nice Omakase. The price is 90/person for six courses. The chef is very creative and interesting. The menu changes on a regular basis.

This is the best Japanese restaurant I've ever been to in the US (disclaimer: I'm vegetarian). Their veggie dishes like curry, tofu steak, and tempura are really tasty. It's home style cooking so different from many other Japanese restaurants, but it's really really good. You have to try it if you're in Hilo.

This place is still a great place for lunch. I typically order the squid & eggplant and they still doesn't disappoint. I still recall when they first open this restaurant the restaurant was so packed which made the restaurant extremely hot. Since the pandemic and social distancing it's much cooler which I think is great. Be prepared ... read more

Even though they were so busy they were able to get us a table. We had the curry chicken and the beef sukiyaki. Both dishes were really very good. The sukiyaki was especially good.

We tried their special plated menu side and it was unbelievable!!! The chef knocked it out of the park with his 7 course, small plated menu. Prepared in front of you it was an experience like no other. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the best dining experience in Hilo!

Our friend recommended we eat here when we took a day trip to Hilo. The sunny Kona weather followed us to Hilo that day. We arrived at opening 430 and were seated inside where it was too hot and muggy. Our hostess moved us to an outside table where the trade wind breezes made it very pleasant. We ordered the bento box with steak and ... read more

The one advice I give you is make a reservation. Lucky my friends and I did cause it was filled up and had people wait for a table to be free. It was like 5:30pm on a weekday. Review on food is good. Price is fair, I had their combination bento dinner combo and another time tried their tonkastu. Portion depends what you get. So look ... read more

I wish I had thought to take a picture, but the food is so good. We stopped in last Thursday night. There’s a delicious mixed appetizer (fried tofu, fish, eggplant) it was hard to pick a favorite. We tried the chicken udon, chicken katsu, beef teriyaki, and squid with eggplant. Every thing was cooked beautifully and tasted so good. M ... read more

Review #8 for 2021. An update on my review because it's been 9 years, and Miyo's moved to Manono Marketplace.

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.
