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.

Hands down the best sushi I’ve ever eaten. Amazing experience all around. Highly recommend the tasting menu with matching liquor/wine tasting.

As usual, the food was simply amazing. The server was really great, although some items took more time than average to arrive (even for simple items). That said, it was still amazing and worth the wait. Although this was not my first time, I was still pretty shocked that a place like Miku would charge for green tea. I think management should seriously consider removing the charge. It seems...for lack of a better word, cheap. I don't want to end it on a negative note, however, so I will do a quick shout out to the Aburi items on the menu. These signature pieces are a must when you go to Miku.

Great views form this restaurateur where the sushi quality is great. However, it doesn't blow you away as some other establishments may.

This place is so over rated. I was truly disappointed with the sushi here. I ordered the sashimi, chef’s special sushi combo, and the salmon pressed sushi. I was told to not add anything to the food since the chef has done so. Well, it lacked favour and sauce. We had to ask for soy and wasabi. The rolls on the combo were very disappointing since I wasn’t sure if I was eating a whole lot of vegetables or sushi. Overall, I will not be back and spend my money else where. Can’t compare to morimoto.

Another great meal at Miku. Service was great right from the moment we walked in the door. Were seated in the back of the restaurant with a great view overlooking the Sails of Canada Place and the water.

Our server was very helpful and attentive, but never gave the feeling of hovering over our table. He helped with the selection of our menu items and drinks and the service staff were great in quickly and elegantly preparing our food. As it was a birthday celebration, they even plated a dessert platter for the birthday girl.

Once again proving Miku is a go to place for a great meal of any kind.

Our server Abbie was amazing and we chose to have the kaisen dining experience and sake flights. It was a great choice and we hope to be back again the next time we are in Vancouver!

The food was excellent and, somehow, we got the best seat in the house--it was perfect. My date loved it. :)
