Mizuno Japanese Restaurant is a family-run business that first opened in 1996. Located in Virginia Beach, Mizuno is embedded in a seafood hotspot, only 25 miles south of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and 158 miles south of Hatteras, North Carolina. Chef-owner Wataru Mizuno feels blessed to be a sushi chef in a culinary trifecta like Virginia Beach. Mizuno and his team take advantage of the restaurant's access to local sources by artfully composing daily specials that feature fresh shrimp, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, flounder, blue crabs and oysters, to name a few. The hook's simple. Mizuno resists complicated sauces and excessive ingredients. Instead, he flavors scallops from the world famous Chesapeake Bay, adding nothing more, at times, than a dash of citrus and a pinch of sea salt. Wataru Mizuno: Chef/Owner Born in Japan, Wataru Mizuno received his formal training in Tokyo, as an apprentice under master Teruo Sato.

    This was my first time visiting Mizuno and the experience was absolutely outstanding. Sushi was AMAZING. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Hampton Road. Our server was absolutely graceful and amazing. 10/10 recommend!

    We love the crab egg drop soup and would return even if that was the only item on the menu. Our tuna tataki crayfish roll, soft shell crab roll and King Kong roll were excellent-each a different taste and texture. We highly recommend Mizuno’s for an authentic Japanese experience.

    We have been a few times and months. Although the food is exceptionally good for the area, the service is definitely lacking.

    We always enjoy typical Japanese dishes like yakisoba and tempura vegetables at Mizuno in addition to the delicious sushi. On this visit, we were especially grateful for the friendly and patient servers and host as our teenager deliberated about what to order.
