We specialize in Aburi, or flamed-seared sushi, which was developed nearly a century ago in Japan. The act of applying fire directly and lightly searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the fish. Miku owner Seigo Nakamura innovated the Aburi concept by crafting specialty sauces using non-traditional Japanese ingredients to pair with each type of fish. The light sear from the binchotan (Japanese bamboo charcoal) then caramelizes the sauce, releasing a smoky aroma and bringing out the finest flavours in each piece of Aburi sushi.

Miku Restaurant is within walking distance from the Pan Pacific Hotel, Canada Place, Fly Over Canada, Cruise Ship Terminals and Sea Bus.

Our entrance is at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way, overlooking the east cruise ship terminal at Canada Place.

**We only will hold reservations up to an additional 15 minutes after your reservation time, after which your table will be released.

It was great, the sushi was amazing, our waiter was awesome, very understanding about my dairy allergy, very respectful, the prime rib my husband had was really fatty but the waiter took care of it, the dessert was delicious, I was really happy that there was a dairy free option, we will definitely be back 😊

🥰"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friend's home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

The best server we have ever had. Gave us the best recommendations and challenged us to try things we didn’t think about. It was also the best sushi I have ever had. The only part that was bad is that I can eat sushi again until I come back.

Service was snobby, condescending and pressuring you to be quick to order and leave. No sense of customer service or amiability. The restaurant has good food, good prices, but lacks personality and ambience. Felt flat, cold, and average.

Our server was awesome!
She wasn't annoying at all, we didn't feel pressured to leave the table at any time but somehow she was always around when we needed her. She was able to give us great recommendations when we wanted to order a few more dishes and she nailed it! Too bad I don't recall her name.
The food was very good too. Amazing flavors...I only wished each bite was a bit more abundant ( a bit more stuff on top of the rice...)
We were not impressed by the sushi but the oshi sushi is outstanding!
I wish the menu was longer as well.

I am sure we'll be back!

was asked if we wanted water or tea to start and we were brought tea twice and then were charged twice although we were under the assumption it came with the meal and did not ask for more. We were also asked if we wanted to miso soup that came with the meal and we were brought 2 and were charged for one of them. Service was good but thought that was unprofessional

Wonderful service, relaxed but attentive. The food was glorious as always. Highly recommend the new Chef selection. We shared with other courses, though that leaves a certain amount of FOMO. Never a bad dish. Can’t wait for next visit.

I ordered a chef special and my friend ordered one of the lunch specials. We shared calamary, ebbi frittatas appetizers and Salmon Oshi sushi. They are OK but not great. Most Omakae lunch I had in a relatively good sushi place in Seattle offers much better quality sushi and rolls. The ambiance and service were great. If your priority is a good ambience and view, this is the place. otherwise, I Do not recommend this restaurant.

Not my first time and surely not my last. Highly recommended for special event dinner/lunch. Kaisen Soba Peperincino and the aburi salmon sushi are the must haves. The salmon melts in mouth. Service is outstanding. Price is a bit on the high side. I will be back.

I was hoping they still had the set menu but unfortunately it was only for dinner. But still they had some great selections and was able to try something different. The salmon oshi was heavenly and the sable fish. A must try!!!

The Aburi Sushi is always good, but it’s really expensive and they seem to use less fish than they used to. Still worth a trip if you’ve never had seared sushi.
