Spent a wonderful two hours wading through the tasting menu which was beautifully crafted and a delight from start to finish … the welcome was genuine and the pride in their menu and its delivery was evident from walking through the door . As an...added bonus we were introduced to Langham’s sparkling wine … Dorset’s very own … which was a great accompaniment to a great meal . No hesitation in recommending … a must if you are ever in the vicinityMore

An amazing meal for the family! Came to celebrate my daughters exam results. Everything was presented superbly and the service was top notch. . I can totally understand why this is voted the best in Dorchester, we would highly recommend it! We love Japanese food...and this is up there with the best we've been to. The effort with using local producers is commended and the cocktails were sublime. Can't wait to go back!More

We had a very tasty meal at this family run restaurant in Dorchester. Nothing too much trouble, Sushi and duck to start with wagyu beef and chicken katsu which was amazing . We will definitely book again living only 20 minutes away.

Another 5 star meal, every time I go back I love the food more. The flavours are so delicate and subtle and the quality of ingredients is excellent. I highly recommend the Black cod main and the Dorset crab salad to start. A faultless experience,...treat yourself!More

Delightful small Japanese restaurant in Dorchester. Family run business; very personal attention. Food was delicious _ especially good was the half and half sharing plate of sushi and tempura and the seaweed starter. Not a place to go if you are in a rush. Service...is leisurely, which suited us perfectly to sit and chat happily over a long meal. Has some interest Japanese themed cocktails as an opener and an excellent smoked rice green tea for later. A lovely touch is that the women in the party are each presented with a rose on departure. Not cheap, but I would certainly go again.More

From start to finish an absolutely excellent evening. The most attentive service I’ve experienced for a long time; best showcased by the front of house waking us through each element of the menu and suggesting a great and well priced pairing wine. The food mirrored...the service in quality - absolutely excellent. Starters are well portioned and very fresh, one to recommend is the tempura prawns. For mains, there’s a wide but sensible selection of meat, fish, vegetable and ramen which all looks very appealing. I opted for the Black Cod (a signature dish) which was the best I’ve had for a long time. Overall, not a foot wrong - I’d absolutely recommend if you are local, or like us new to the area.More

Would highly recommend this place. Excellent customer service and very accommodating to our family. We had the tasting menu. The miso soup was generous and the best miso soup we’ve tasted. The sushi and sashimi were absolute delicious, I’m not a big fan of prawns...but thought the prawn sashimi was tasty. The octopus dumpling takoyaki was a lovely surprise, it was my husband’s favourite dish and definitely something we’ll try again. The kushiyaki chicken skewers were full of flavour and spice. The black cod course was my favourite course along with the dessert. The black cod had such an interesting flavour and the yuzu dessert cut through the meal perfectly. The dessert was generous in portion but I could have easily had another. All in all we had such a lovely meal and will definitely come back again.More

My husband and I came to Myras on our mini moon in Dorchester having seen its high rating on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. Having only Ever had “chain” Japanese cuisine before we were keen to have the taster menu so that we could try...new things. This was an outstanding selection of dishes, each showcasing a different style and taste. Personal highlights include the black cod and the octopus dumpling as well as welcoming and knowledgeable host. Thoroughly deserving of its high rating.More
