Food was beautiful and the service excellent. When I rang to book I was warned there was a large booking just prior to the time I wanted to book so there may be a delay, which I appreciated. However despite the restaurant being full the service was quick, friendly, efficient and polite, and there wasn't a delay with our food... More

My first course arrived but my husband & daughter had to wait another 15/20 mins. for their starters. After several enquiries to the staff our main meals eventually arrived at about 9pm, we... More

I was taken here as it was my first time having Teppanyaki and this was amazing. I went with my partner and we were seated with around 9 other people. The night was so entertaining with the Chef and staff being fantastic. I think I had sore cheeks by the end of the night from smiling and laughing so much.... More

We found everything to be perfect. The sushi was lovely and fresh and very tasty. The restaurant was very clean and modern with nice spacing between the tables. The staff were all very good and the prices were reasonable.

We want to Miyazu as a group and it was great. The staff were attentive and helpful with the menu for people that were not familiar with Sushi.
