My favorite sushi restaurant in the Springs. The restaurant itself isn’t anything fancy, but the sushi is top notch.
I was very surprised to see a 20% tip automatically added to my bill after what had been a wonderful meal. I asked to speak to the manager about this who told me that this is their policy at the sushi bar due to customers not tipping. I have no problem tipping, but it’s at my discretion based on service, not theirs based on bad customers! I will not eat there until this policy is removed!
For those of you who've been to Miyake in the past year or two most can concur that it was not what it once used to be. I walked in deciding to give it another go only to be greeted by a young man behind the sushi bar instead of Ms. Miyake. ITS UNDER NEW OWNERS! I thought to myself and decided to give him a try. He didnt dissapoint. The dining experience at Miyake's can be summed up in one word, phenomenal. I love the chef's Hachi-Roku roll (Asparagus, cream cheese, spicy scallop, and tilapia) other rolls which are good are his spicy spider, delicious roll, and his rainbow temaki. I plan on trying everything he's got. Service is great and the back of the house is excellent at what they do too. The ribeye steak is buttery good and the tempura is a good choice too. Desserts that must be tried are the tempura cheesecake and the tempura honey dragon<--- favs =). I have to say I've found my new place and everyone should try them too. Way better than the previous owners I'm glad to see Miyake back up and running. *MUST GO*
You haven't had sushi 'til you've had sushi at Jun. Always fresh fish, ginormous portions and absolutely the most special 'special' rolls. Try the blind date roll (tempura jalepeno in the center), the classic yummy roll (salmon and avocado on the outside) and the soft shell crab hand roll. To Die For. Beautiful presentation, every meal starts with Miso soup (not a given most places any more) and you can top off dinner with a scoop of green tea ice cream. Jun is sushi in this town and both locations have the same great quality food, chefs and servers... ambience is better at the newer Centennial location but don't let that sway you if you're on Academy!
