20 "Japanese" Restaurants in Miami.
Osaka is an upscale nikkei restaurant in Brickell. The sushi is very good, but most other plates fall short.
Intimo is a fancy Nikkei restaurant in South of Fifth. The food’s not bad, but the interior is ridiculous and so bright you’ll need sunglasses.
Sushi By Bou is a six-seat omakase inside the old Versace Mansion in South Beach. It’s definitely a special occasion spot.
Sushi Erika is a little Japanese restaurant in North Bay Village. There’s almost always a wait because every roll here is delicious.
Go To Sushi is a very casual little Japanese spot in the Upper East Side with surprisingly good food.
Komodo is a big, flashy restaurant in Brickell serving a mix of Chinese/Japanese food where people go mostly to see and be seen.
Novikov is an upscale spot in Downtown where you will spend a lot of money and be surrounded by people in businesswear.
Wabi Sabi is an great lunch spot on the Upper Eats Side with customizable rice and noodle bowls that we very much like.
Hiden is a $170 omakase spot in the back of a taco place in Wynwood, and is home to one of the best special occasion meals in the city.
Chotto Matte is an expensive Peruvian/Japanese restaurant on Lincoln Road that’s not worth your time or money.
Blue Ribbon is a solid sushi and fried chicken spot in South Beach good for a date or nice weekend dinner.
Pubbelly Sushi is a fun spot in Sunset Harbour that’s good for sharing some sushi and small plates.
Katana in North Beach is one of those sushi restaurants where the plates float by on a little stream, and it works great for small groups or dates.
