I was really hoping that Ginza Miyako would be amazing. Located on the first floor of Stamford Hotel on North Terrace, it is a beautifully designed space on point with modern Japanese decorations.
We were craving for fresh sushi/ sashimi so we decided to try their chef’s special nigiri and an entree size tempura dish. The tempura consisted of fried prawn, eggplant, fish fillet, and pumpkin. The tempura was light and airy but just not crispy enough for me.
The nigiri set was especially disappointing. First of all, there were too much rice in proportion to the piece of fish. Secondly, the sushi rice was not properly seasoned. In addition, I didn’t visually appreciate white fishes plated on a white plate either. We both regretted that we should have ordered something else.
Ginza Miyako is such a beautiful venue and I feel that this space has lots of potential, only if they can pick up on their game on their Japanese food.
