Asia Cuisine

126 North Aurora Street
Ithaca, NY 14850
Phone: 607-256-8818

This small eatery specializes in Korean and Japanese cuisines, including sushi, salads, bento boxes, and bibim bap. They excel in both hot and cold weather, with a cold sashimi variation of bibim bap, which is normally served hot. For winter, try the bibim bap served in a hot stoneware bowl. The food is good, but service can get slow when they're busy.

Capital State Kitchen

138 West State Street
Ithaca, NY 14850
Phone: 607-272-1388

The new Capital State Kitchen Japanese Restaurant adds Japanese food next door to the same family's Capital Corner Chinese Restaurant. They offer good-quality sushi and Japanese entrees, though there's nothing especially innovative about their menu and the prices are a little higher than similar downtown offerings. We're intrigued by a new all-you-can-eat offering, $14 for lunch and $21 for dinner, in which you can keep ordering appetizers, sushi, sashimi, teriyaki dishes, rice or noodle entrees, and dessert until you've had enough.

Mia Restaurant

130 East State Street
Ithaca, NY 14850
Phone: 607-277-2000

Twenty years after opening his first restaurant, Just a Taste, Lex Chutintaranond has opened Mia on the Ithaca Commons, featuring pan-Asian cuisine embodied in a variety of fresh and interesting dishes. It's a very seafood-heavy menu, but there are also lots of meat and vegetarian dishes. We were impressed with the friendly and helpful service, and the delicious food. Be warned: when they say spicy, they mean it! (Try the spicy saketini cocktail.)

Mitsuba Japanese Cuisine

2300 North Triphammer Road
Ithaca, NY 14850
Phone: 607-319-0760

Mitsuba Japanese Cuisine is the fourth location of a family-owned restaurant chain that offers fresh sushi and hibachi, the popular Japanese steakhouse style of cooking where meals are prepared right in front of the diner. They also have a variety of dishes prepared in the kitchen, and attractive lunch pricing. They're in the former location of Kyushu in Ithaca's northeast, near the Shops at Ithaca Mall, with updated decor and a remarkable attention to beautifully presented food.

Miyake


Order on IthacaToGo

416 Eddy Street
Ithaca, NY 14850
Phone: 607-277-6767

In the former location of Kayuga, Miyake features attractive new decor and an expanded menu. After we were seated at our table, we were greeted with a small dish of edamame to nibble on, and served hot green tea. The steamed gyoza is a bit wilted, but the calamari tempura is exceptional and the sushi very good. Lunch box specials include cooked dishes or plenty of sushi. There's nothing extraordinary here, but the food's good and the service is good.
