I had dinner with my son, and the food was great. The service was quick, and the waiter was courteous. I tried several types of nigiri sushi, and everything tasted very fresh. I definitely recommend Miyabi 9.

I've been here many times and by far my favorite way to dine is by omakase. I have never been disappointed or felt that I was being served the easy specials. You can set your budget and give ideas to the chef. I especially love...More

You won't get better sushi in Des Moines. It's one of the better "Americanized" sushi joints you can try, and the service is commendable. Prices are about on par with other restaurants of its kind and the selection of rolls and quality of the food...More
