This is the second time I have visited MIYA and it has been an amazing experience both times. The restaurant has been beautifully done and the food is first class. It is so good to have somewhere independent and different in Aylesbury which you would normally have to go to London to experience. Had the Prawn Ten Don lunch with an extra chicken yakitori and miso soup all was really brilliant. Service is great and place is a delight would highly recommend.

Very good quality Japanese restaurant. Excellent service and the food was delicious. The sushi platter seemed very over-priced (it was nice though), so I wouldn't have that again. A classy establishment - ideal for a romantic date but definitely not cheap.

This was our first visit to Miya Japanese Grill and Bar and we loved it. We went for lunch on a Monday so it was a little quiet, but that was to be expected, however the food, service and look/feel of the restaurant was exceptional. We will definitely be visiting again.

We came to Miya for our 11th wedding anniversary. We had lots of great reviews from friends and family but wanted to check it out for ourselves. As soon as we came in we were greeted and shown to our table. Our drinks order was taken and we were left to take in the ambience. We were seated upstairs in the main restaurant but there were many options for seating including private dining and sitting opposite the chef to watch him cook. Once our cocktails arrived our food order was taken. After approximately 30mins (And several amazing cocktails later) our starters were served and the presentation did not disappoint. They were really tasty and filling. Once finished the plates were quickly cleared away and given a short break before our mains arrived that were equally delicious. We finished off the evening with coffees and a tour round the building. We look forward to more night at Miya a great addition to Aylesbury’s dinning options.

Our first visit. Food amazing. We had the tepanyaki . Service leaves alot to be desired. Staff are friendly enough but not well trained in customer service. We had to ask to order drinks as no one came to take out order. Staff didn’t seem to be looking around to check on customers, no awareness of customers waiting. Literally as our dessert was being cleared we were asked if we wanted the bill.
I asked where the toilets were & was told downstairs. On getting down I had no idea where to go. The waiter I had just asked was behind me & just walked off! We heard another table complaining about the time they had been waiting for food.
It’s not cheap, so you expect food & service to be good. We loved the food it was delicious. Front of house need to be running a tighter ship, it’s currently letting the side down.

Miya is a very elegant Japanese restaurant bar and grill. It has several eating and social areas, so it can be for every occasion. Including several sunken tables, should you wish to have the fun Japanese authentic eating experience. Miya provides several different menus. A teppanyaki menu, with a private grill area for parties up to twelve. A pre theatre menu which is great value, and an extensive full menu. The food is amazing, fresh and full of flavour. It is displayed so beautifully on the plate, almost looks too good to eat.
As a family we are so pleased to have Miya in Aylesbury and we hope that it thrives.

We were really impressed with the Sushi starters but the main courses were underwhelming. The teriyaki sauce lacked depth of flavour and appeared to be added to the dish after cooking. the chicken was overcooked and the duck tough! Really disappointed as we love Japanese food, had read some good reviews for the place and were looking forward to being regular visitors.

Very different restaurant for Aylesbury. The ambience was very pleasant. Starters were exceptionally good, particularly the teriyaki beef. Mains were a bit too sweet and not helped by having a chunk of roasted pineapple served on the plate. Service was very good and attentive and I would certainly return to this restaurant.

Would return again in a few months although very expensive for what it is. Vegan menu needs improvement as very limited and would be good to explain what each different part of it people have never been to a Japanese before

Decor and ambiance was good/very good. Staff were friendly, but not Japanese. Ebi Tempora was very good. The veg tempora a little chunky and quirky (not had potato tempora before). Teriyaki Salmon was very tasty. Portions were on the large side. Too much western influence for my liking, and only 1 Japanese beer on the menu.
