“Poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Fish soup was very bad. as a serious cook myself, I can cook a far superior seafood soup. The white fish was overlooked and tough. Very few scallops, mussels and shrimp were included.
Very slow bar.
Overall very bad.

“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

Great Japanese grub, highly professional. This place has been a Nelson institution forever it seems and is full of locals. Everything is of highest order and you have many choices of how to dine, including the entertaining serve what is thrown at you thing. Personally I love the udon noodle dish. Being in the hotel it is rather posh so great to take visitors, date, mother...

“Great fun dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Had a wonderful night of beautiful food with added entertainment value. Our chef was an outstanding showman. Had a ball- even managed to catch the egg in my mouth! Normally not that co-ordinated!

“Yuki at the Sushi Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

The best sushi I have ever eaten, I highly recommend Miyazu and the Dragon Roll and the Tarantula Roll are a must to try.

Yuki making the sushi is a feast for the eyes and his finesse is exceptional, with every move so deliberate and precise. He is passionate about what he does and it really shows in each and every one of his constructions.

Each bite is a pleasure, I cannot recommend this place enough.

“Dining at Miyazu Japanese Restaurant, Nelson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

What is there not to say about this place. It was WoW from start to finished. Some friends took us there and we wondered why we hadn't been there before. They appoint one chef to look after your group and not only did he dish up fabulous food but he performed in an artistic way the whole time. I do hope we can get back again some time as it was very entertaining and the food was fabulous.
