Chef Takeshi has Miyazaki on Barrack Street, serving up stunning Japanese street-food from a tiny take-out kitchen (there are a small number of seats along one counter). Miyazaki’s has won a number of national awards, including Ireland’s Best Asian Take-Out 2017. This small but mighty kitchen has been reviewed in international journals and Takeshi’s take on classic Japanese dishes now draws people from all over Ireland and beyond to his door.
