Ginza Miyako

Ginza Miyako

Restaurants that offer impeccable service, a relaxed and calming atmosphere and a tempting menu which includes equally tempting vegan options are not to be found on every street corner; so this is what makes Ginza Miyako even more special.

On a recent outing with a vegan friend, we decided to give this quiet little Japanese restaurant in the Stamford Plaza a go and from the moment we walked through the doors until the moment we left, we were made to feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. The service at Ginza Miyako is faultless and comes with a smile every time. Any questions you have of the menu, including their sake selection, are never any trouble, even for two ladies as utterly clueless as KB and I were about which sake we would like to drink with our meal.

The menu presents ‘mainstream’ options for the most part, but at the bottom of each section there is a specific vegan section, which we loved. The fact that the options are vegan and not just vegetarian are an extra bonus, which may not necessarily be a mean feat for Japanese cuisine but when you consider that this is a Japanese and French fusion style restaurant, you can have a little more appreciation for the effort they have gone to so as to ensure Adelaide’s vegans don’t miss out on this great little spot.

KB and I shared a good selection of entrees and mains over the course of our dinner, accompanied by a small bottle of sake that we really could not get enough of. But whilst the food is delicious and fresh and the sake enough to turn even the most committed wine drinker (at least for an evening), it really is the welcoming service that rounds out the whole experience which makes Ginza Miyako so worth your time. I highly recommend you give this place a go the next time you feel like something a little different.

Ginza Miyako is in the Stamford Plaza Hotel – at 150 North Terrace, opposite Old Parliament House.

Open for lunches Monday-Friday from 12noon until 2:30pm and every night for dinner from 5:30pm until 10pm.
