Kaiseki that changes monthly with a Kamaaina discount! Fabulous balance of flavors and presentation with a Hawaiian twist. Waikiki beach, the sunset - Lucky we live Hawaii

My husband and I, southern people, had a beautiful dinner at Miyako. The ladies serving us made us feel very comfortable despite our obvious difficulty in using chop sticks and gracefully eating the Japanese food. A great experience.

Had dinner once while staying at the New Otani hotel. Service was very slow, waiters kept apologizing but did not speed up. Absolutely no view, where are the tables displayed on the elevators posters and on web site? We did not return.

Sunset is the visual delight, but its really disappointing when it takes 55 minutes to have the beer served.

We enjoyed the chicken teriyaki on a bed of cabbage which was delicious. Wasn't so inpressed with the fish on what tasted like lime flavoured lettuce. The Service was very good and the saki taster (3 samples) was great.Overall the food was pricey but the atmosphere and service probably justified it.

We reserved one of three lanai's for the "sunset" dinner time. It was private and nice, up on the second floor overlooking the beach with a great view of the sunset. The food was Japanese, and was interesting but not stellar. The oysters were inedible. Even the shrimp seemed a little limp. But the service was good, and there were... More

We agree - wish we had read the review before dining there. Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura consisted of 3 shrimp & 10 vegetables - $24 - not good value in our opinion. We left most of it on the plate but they did not ask why. Service & food rather ordinary. We were disappointed especially for the cost.

The Miyako Restaurant at The New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel is one of Honolulu’s best kept dining secrets. Here you’ll enjoy the finest Japanese cuisine, including traditional kaiseki dinners, made one order at a time from the freshest of ingredients. Dishes are as visually artistic as they are memorably delicious. From its second floor location, the Miyako Restaurant offers unobstructed panoramic views of Sans Souci Beach and Waikiki skyline. Consider timing your visit with sunset.
