Miyako has been a soft-spoken icon of authentic Japanese dining since the mid- 1960s, serving authentic fare with the best sunset view in Hawaii away from the congestion of Waikiki’s hotspots. While the timeless tastes of its fresh fish, perfectly seasoned sirloins and tender washugyu beef remain unchanged, Miyako’s presentation is contemporary. The Beef Cutlet Sandwich is a crowd pleaser; unbelievably tender beef, deep fried and brushed with miso sauce on a bed of fresh cabbage, presented like a clubhouse sandwich—with a side of housemade onion rings. Open for dinner, guests are welcome to the cabanas outside facing the setting sun or the more traditional and intimate indoor seating area. Miyako is the closest you’ll get to Japan while basking in the paradisaical glow of the Hawaiian Islands.
Just outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, Miyako offers a uniquely traditional Japanese dinner, complete with servers in kimonos, and a serene tearoom atmosphere overlooking the ocean. Perched atop the second floor of the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel, guests enjoy an unimpeded view of Waikiki’s stunning sunsets and nighttime city lights. Reserve one of the exclusive open-air lanai cabanas for an intimate evening of expertly prepared tempura, sukiyaki, and sushi. Find your zen, on and off the plate, at one of Waikiki’s hidden gems.
