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.
