My girlfriend and I love saki bombing, so when we found a place that had $2 Kirin lights and buy one hot Saki, get one for free, we had to try it. We did not expect the food to be that great as the place is small and inexpensive. However, we were pleasantly surprised. My girlfriend can eat sushi 7 days a week and we both agreed the rolls were delicious. We have been back several times and have never been disappointed. It is a must try!

This was one of the worst food deliveries I've ever had. I live two blocks away and it took nearly an hour for the food to arrive. The food was bland and uninspired. I would not ever order from here again.

Miyako is simply the best sushi place in UWS. I dont even write these reviews but i this place truly deserves a 4.5 out of 5, and couldn't help but write one. I really love the lunch special they have here. 3 rolls for $9!! My favorite is the EEL AVOCADO roll, which in my view is the BEST I have ever had. It just melts in my mouth and I feel like I am in heaven every time I have it. I also love the crunchy spicy tuna and the shrimp tempura rolls. Me and my girlfriend have been avid sushi fans for years and lately, we can't stop coming to this place. Everyone reading this should at least try it.

I used to order from Miyako 3-4 times each week. But that was 3.5 years ago. In 2006, I started to notice that the sushi didn't taste as fresh and the rolls were slightly smaller/skimpier than before. Then one day I dined in with some other once before loyal Miyako customers and we were just so disappointed with the quality of the fish that we all stopped ordering from them. It was SAD. This year, three friends of mine moved into the neighborhood and started ordering from Miyako and they gave rave reviews. So I thought maybe Miyako has come back! Or it was just that these friends never really had good sushi before (all three tend to order california roll varieties). But I was willing to give Miyako another try so I ordered the Sake Don and some yellowtail sashimi. Boy was I disappointed again. The fish did not even look fresh. The salmon was covered in a slime and the yellowtail was dull in color and tasted strange. I couldn't finish my meal.

Greetings! I am a regular at Miyako. I go to the Monday night all you can eat and I order in from there on other nights. I love it. I have had nothing but positive experiences there. The waitresses are friendly, warm and always willing help. They get slammed on Monday nights from 7 - 8pm - sometimes you will have to wait a bit. So? They offer all you can eat sushi, rolls, appetizers and hot dishes for a reasonable price. I usually end up spending plenty of $$$ of beers along with the food. Spicy tuna and spicy salmon are personal favorites, but all of the pieces I find to be quite fresh. I like it there.

What's the first thing you do when you move into a new apartment? Find the best sushi takeout/delivery in the neighborhood! Since I didn't know anyone in this area to ask for rec's I checked the reviews on Miyako, and thanks to all you wonderful people who reviewed it, I've found the best sushi place on the UWS. (Ok, Ruby Foo's has fun rolls too but they don't have much variety and it's insanely expensive). I give their food 4.0 stars because it is the best on the UWS, but the best sushi in Manhattan is not on the UWS. One reviewer a few yrs ago recommended the Amsterdam Roll. I ordered it my first time at Miyako, and even when I try new rolls, I always order the Amsterdam Roll. It's my favorite at Miyako. Sometimes it varies - some days insanely amazing, some days just great. I also like to get the Alaska roll with added Tobiko inside. My fiance likes to get the Dinner Bento with Sashimi as the Entree and a spicy salmon roll. I am awaiting my order as I type - they are always so fast. ... Ha. I am back after unpacking my order and starting with my free Dynamite Roll. Ok so my cell phone says I called them at 9:58PM on a Friday night and spent almost 2 minutes on the phone. At 10:26PM lots of sushi for the two of us arrived! I live two avenues and 15 street blocks away. There's a waitress/hostess at the restaurant that I've seen on two different occaisions. I swear she looks like an asian Kate Moss. Maybe a few inches shorter, very short hair, very quiet but so nice. Must eat, will review on my new rolls later.

I did the AYCE on Monday. They have a BIG board outside advertising it. When I went in, the waitress tried to give me a regular menu. I said I am doing the AYCE. She rolled her eyes very obviously and took her very sweet time getting me the ayce sheets. I am so nice in a restaurant and profusely thank people and say "please". I hate that kind of utter rudeness back. If you don't want people doing AYCE don't advertise it and don't do it! You can't put a big sign outside and then get annoyed because people want the deal advertised loudly on the sign! Despite this, it was very, very good. One thing I liked is that there are things besides sushi on the ayce menu: salad, miso soup, tempura veg/chicken, terriyaki beef, etc. I have to say the sushi was fantastically fresh and good tasting. My orders came very quickly. They didn't purposely overload with rice - it was a true balance. The spicy salmon sashimi was delicious and the most moist and flavorful I have had in ages. The bad: they are obsessive about not wasting to the point of making it unpleasant. I totally understand charging for leftover rolls and rice. Completely, I do. I had ordered vegetable tempura..they didn't specify which vegetables, usually it's broccoli, onion, sweet potato, etc. One piece was a weird type of radish- I ate half of it and it was gross - semi crunchy and I hate radish for the most part. I even ate the tempura batter off of it so they wouldn't think I was purposely leaving some over. I left that on my plate and while they cleared other plates they left that one. Finally, the waitress said, "All you can eat, must finish EVERYTHING!" We are literally talking something the size of a postage stamp. I told her I don't like it emphatically and it is gross. She rolled her eyes and said next time they charge. I was purposely careful to eat every single grain of rice of the sushi and I even ate the shredded cucumber garnish on the tempura plate. You do not have to be a nazi about it when I am not trying to scam, I am not leaving leftover rice and seaweed on sushi. I ordered chicken yakitori - menu just said chicken on skewers. There were 2 giant pieces of mushrooms.. I DESPISE mushrooms. They would make me throw up if I ate one. Fearful I would get charged for something I would have gladly asked to leave off if I had known, I had to hide it in my napkin. I understand trying to limit the scamming and worry about costs, but going to such extremes is not necessary either.
