The best Japanese restaurant in Sacramento. The food is top notch, always using the freshest and highest quality ingredients. For example they use red miso, a far more expensive and mellow version of the traditional soup. The Jessie's roll appetizer is exquisite. The tempura consists of a wonderful blend of shrimp and asparagus, shiitaki mushroom, and numerous other vegetables not usually found in typical tempura. Our favorite is the sesame chicken, lightly batter dipped and severed with a light but flavorful sauce. Nothing is EVER greasy at Miyagi! From the bar try the great JJ's birthday (raspberry) or the lemon drop. On the weekends the place is packed, with families, singles and couples. After searching for years for the best Japanese restaurant, we found it. They are a bit pricey, but after all, you get what you pay for.
