Miyako Japanese Restaurant serves traditional Japanese food at a reasonable price. The restaurant has great Japanese decor with a nice Japanese bridge at the entrance of the restaurant. The back wall has an awesome large wall sculpture of the Buddha’s face which takes up most of the wall.

The food on offer is all your favourite Japanese delights like sushi and sashimi, tempura, gyoza (Japanese dumplings), tataki beef, teriyaki dishes as well as plenty other dishes. The service at Miyako is really good, as soon as you order your meal they bring you a free appertizer. We enjoyed a small dish of seared salmon with vegetables.

They have a very extensive drinks menu with a huge selection of local and international beers (including Japanese beers), red, white and sparkling wines and Japanese sake and shochu. The wine menu is not the cheapest I have seen but seems reasonable for the location. You are looking at a minimum of around $40 for a bottle of wine.
