Miyake Restaurant Group is pleased to announce that the new concept and menu have begun at Miyake.  Chef Masa Miyake has restructured the menu to combine the Japanese knowledge of food for which he is so well known with a variety of  international cuisines from his extensive culinary background. By offering a menu with items changing as frequently as day to day, Miyake can better utilize Miyake Farm, as well as other seasonal items both local and Japanese.

Along with the new menu concept, Miyake now offers a bento box, available Monday – Saturday at lunch from 11:30-2:30.  The Miyake-style bento includes 6 daily-changing items making for a unique, Japanese-style set lunch. Click to view the full Miyake Lunch Menu.

We offer validated parking at the Union Street garage after 5pm Monday-Saturday.

“Miyake is the best sushi in New England, easy.” – Customer Review

The New York Times names Miyake a place to eat, “In a city of Abundance”

“Where the locals eat.” – Boston Magazine

Pai Men Miyake opened in September, 2010 as Masa Miyake’s second restaurant in Portland. Meaning “100 noodles” in Japanese, the focus is on ramen with broths rich in pork, chicken, & vegetables. On the warmer days of summer there is also a myriad of more refreshing options such as sashimi soba & a variety of sushi rolls.  Although a more casual affair, the food shows the same quality and creative characteristics as the acclaimed dishes from the original Food Factory Miyake.

After 5:30pm, Pai Men boasts a Yakitori Grill fueled by traditional Japanese binchotan charcoal. A variety of skewers are offered, allowing Pai Men to showcase & utilize both animals from Miyake Farm & seafood from the coast of Maine.  With a large sake list, a full bar, and the option of outdoor seating during the summer months, Pai Men is an ideal place to spend a night out on the town.
Enjoy Pai Men’s Tei-Shoku Lunch Special served Monday – Friday from 12pm – 2:30pm.
Come celebrate Happy Hour daily from 4pm- 5:30pm & from 9:30pm – midnight.
