Food is great! You will know it's authentic seeing so many Japanese serving you. Their black sesame ice cream is good unlike those you get from Japanese restaurant chain such as those in gurney mall. Will stop by the hotel for the lunch in future if shopping at either both gurney or gurney paragon mall.

Fruits not much variety, coffee is weak. Improved more on deserts and fruits. Staff friendly and helpful. We miss oysters. Worth the money and nice environment. Sandy.

I do not know why I have yet to review on Miraku. We've been to Miraku many times in past few years. It's the best Japanese food in town, at very reasonable price. The quality of the food is just top notch. There are a few items that we always order: salmon sashimi, dragon roll, sashimi salad, gyutan. We would... More

The last time I went there was to celebrate my father's birthday. We went for their buffet and it was worth our money. The food was great and it will make your mouth water just by looking at it.

Great restaurant with plenty of Japanese clientele. The chefs are also Japanese and take great care with the quality of the food and service. Highly recommended if you enjoy traditional Japanese food.

Good variety of dinner and lunch set menus with reasonable prices. The food is fresh and very tasty. Good choice of sushi and sashimi. One of my favourite dishes is eel which has never disappointed. The atmosphere is informal and the decor could be improved. The service is variable but the food is usually served timely. I would recommend this... More

We ordered some Japanese Unaju which came with miso soup. The baked scallops in cheese are very nice, you had 6 scallops per serve. The salmon sashimi are fresh and nice. Huge tempura serve with prawn, fish, eggplants are a must if you love tempuras
