I first tried Miyabis in Greenville and thought it was good. When we moved to Columbia and searched for a sushi restaurant and tried several in Columbia, we found most of them too expensive for their "chain" sushi taste and expected the same at Miyabis and it is now our favorite and several friends go their regularly because of our recommendation. The sushi is very well prepared and sized appropriately. The avocado salad with tuna is super with a nice Nigori cold sake! But our hostess, Eni, is incredible! We knows what we get each time, she asks great questions, makes a personal touch and suggests items, prepared just how we like it! We go at least weekly if not twice or more and love it each time. It is very clean and the sushi guys greet you as you enter and thank you as you leave. All in all, being a chain japanese sushi house is a plus here. They just know how to do it right!!! I can't comment on the steak habachi. Neither of us enjoy that type of dining, but I am sure it is great.

This resturant is awesome in every aspect. The cook utilizing a Hybatchi grill in the center of the tables surrounded by their patrons. People tend to enjoy this as they may monitor how their food is being prepared.The chef's put on a lively show to keep the children and adults entertained while the food is being prepared. Lude humor may be used on occasion depending on the patrons at the table. Either way, these guys are hilarious. You may choose from the menu which items you would like cooked and how you would like them prepared. The Shrimp and chicken has always been my choice. There has never been a bad word concerning any food coming off of these grills to my knowledge. Def a crowd pleaser. Words of advice, Drink the Sour Apple Saki only and watch out for flying shrimp.
I VISITED THIS RESTAURANT IN MARCH, 2010. OUR OFFICE WAS IN COLUMBIA AT A CONFERENCE FROM ANOTHER COUNTY. WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR LUNCH, EVERYONE FROM THE 48 COUNTIES OF SOUTH CAROLINA WENT TO LUNCH AT ONE TIME. OF COURSE, THE BUSINESSES THAT WERE CLOSE TO THE HOTEL WHERE THE CONFERENCE WAS HELD, FILLED UP VERY FAST. HOWEVER, ONE OF OUR CO-WORKERS SUGGESTED THAT WE EAT SEAFOOD AND THAT SHE KNEW OF A CONVIENIENT RESTAURANT, WHERE THE WAIT WAS NOT AWFULLY LONG. SO WE SET OUT TO OCEAN VIEW SEAFOOD RESTAURANT. TO MY LIKING, THE PLACE WAS AWESOME WITH THE SEAFOOD DECORATIONS ALL OVER THE PLACE. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS FRIENDLY AND THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. THE BATHROOM WAS NICE AND CLEAN AND WE ENJOYED OURSELVES, IMMENSELY.
