Miya's - New Haven

Went there yesterday with my boyfriend. We had reservations, but we were seated at the sushi bar to wait for our table.. and then ignored while a big crowd was seated. When we finally got our table, they didn't bring us water/tea .. our table wasn't even set up.. a waiter came by and was shocked that we didnt have plates, but it didn't occur to him to bring us some himself.. anyway, a while pass by more, and the waitress finally comes.. service was ridiculous overall .. at first, i thought there were only one waitress so i felt bad abotu complaining.. but it turns out there are actually 4 waitstaff... they're very disorganized. ive never seen anything like it

anyway, i wasn't impressed by the food either. i can see the potential -- for example, the fried okra roll was delicious and easily my favorite.. .. but the rice they use is just bad.. the rice was packed in tightly so that it becomes hard.. the rubbery and hard rice offsets any potential for creativity because thats all you taste. the avocado was hard and not ripe enough...

the wobbling hen roll was my least favorite.. it consisted of gorgonzola cheese, (hard) avocado, and crab meat.. i've witnessed the magic of gorgonzola in previous dining experiences but the combination didn;t do anyway.. all you could taste was teh saltiness of the cheese..

i think for convenience, price, and consistency`-- Hama in Hamden, where I am a regular, is better. I don't think I will be returning to Miya's.
