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.

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.

It was a great dining experience as always. We got the Miku Zen and the green tea opera cake. The food was very good and was just the right amount for lunch. The service was great.

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.

The service wonderful as always and the food exquisite!
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.

Excellent overall experience! We had the Kaisen tasting menu and were not disappointed. The presentation of the food was spectacular, which was enhanced by the platewear. The food itself was amazing. Each dish was thoughtfully put together that was well balanced and a delight to the palate. The service was excellent. The restaurant is on the noisier side as it is a bustling, energetic atmosphere.

Had a wonderful experience at Miku. The server was really nice, the food was impeccably presented and it tasted just as good as it looked. Highlights were definitely their signature dishes the Salmon Oshi sushi and the Green Tea Opera. However we also really enjoyed the chirashi tart and the seaweed salad. Perfect place for lunch with a calming harbour view. Hope to return when we are next in Vancouver

It had a nice waterfront view and service was good. The food was a little underwhelming for the price. $150 for a kaiseki dinner. The $50 sake tasting was enjoyable. I will not be back, however, because of the price. Many items tasted the same, and I wish they had soup with the meal and different plates. The plates made an irritating scraping sound, similar to nails on a chalkboard.

This was a return trip to Miku. Service was excellent and the staff generally helpful and attentive. Just thought the food was a little off on this trip - the calamari tempura was oily, not crisp. And the sushi was good but not superb. Maybe an off night, but we weren’t bowled over this time.
