Time Out says

The ANdAZ Hotel – a young, trendy arm of the Hyatt group, occupying a Victorian red-brick edifice dating from 1884 – has various dining and drinking options, including this dinky Japanese restaurant.

Sushi, sashimi and maki take up much of the menu, with a number of chef's selections making things easier for the indecisive or uninitiated. Elsewhere there are salads, tempura (soft shell crab, vegetable, moriawase) and hot dishes such as chicken teriyaki, yakitori and prawn gyoza.  

Keep an eye out for bento boxes, a solid sake selection and take away options, too.

Miyako is a teeny tiny trendy sushi spot tucked away in the depths of the behemoth Andaz Hotel on Liverpool St. I popped in recently with two friends to grab a bite after some alfresco drinking and it totally satisfied that Japanese craving that had quite suddenly come over us. 

I'll admit that I'm not a seasoned sushi restaurant-goer but I can vouch that this place, the service and of course the sushi is sleek. We tried to keep it affordable and so stuck to bowls of miso, piles of tempura, small plates of spicy tuna and salmon maki all paired with crisp glasses of white wine. You could, of course, do the total opposite and splurge your savings on a menu such as this one too but it is more than possible take it a little easier on the pocket.

I recommend you lose yourself in the Andaz in your search for the toilets at some point during the meal - it's more than worth a ganders.

I've been to Miyako about 5 times now and I love it - delicious, quick and not over expensive. The team there are lovely and recognized me after my second visit, which really impressed my friends when we tried it for dinner! 

It's my little Japanese treasure in the city, specially as they do takeaway as well. 

Have been going to this restaurant every week for the past 2 years and it never fails to deliver and delight. The food and the team is outstanding every time. Probably the best sushi in the city for all I know. They are usually fully booked, so try to reserve a table if you can. They also deliver to my office, so great if you don't have much time.

After visiting Japanese canteen and sampling there offerings. I was surprised to find what a rip off miyako was. I had teriyaki beef £25 which was literally a piece of average steak with chopped up lettuce a cherry tomato and a bowl of rice. Considering the amount of good restaurants in London I would avoid this like the plague.
