Located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Yaletown, Minami follows the pioneering footsteps of its sister restaurant, Miku, in delivering the innovative dining experience of Aburi cuisine to Vancouver's thriving food scene. Each piece of sushi is flame-seared using a blowtorch and binchotan (oak charcoal), resulting in sushi with a smoky aroma and a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

    Food was good but did the tasting menu and it took over 2.5 hours and had guests leave after the place closed before all the courses showed. Very disappointing.

    We visited whilst on holiday following a recommendation from someone in Montreal. We ordered way too much food but it was the best sushi we’ve ever had! The surf and turf rolls are absolutely amazing and the signature sushi plate is a great way to try out all of the speciality dishes! I would recommend to anyone

    Overall the food was good, but the aburi sushi is VERY different from Miku's. Being a sister restaurant I had the expectation that the aburi sushi would taste the same, but it was very different and much worse than Miku's. The aburi sushi here was very oily and there isn't enough charred flavor.

    Aiden was an absolute fantastic server! He demonstrated true hospitality and that now of days is hard to come by. As a person who has worked in the service industry for many years, Aiden blew us out of the water and delivered excellent service throughout the evening. We were travelling from Saskatchewan and looking forward to some fresh, unique sushi and seafood, your restaurant delivered!! Excellent food, ambiance & service. Everyone from the service team to the Chefs you could see the hard work they put in. Love the open concept kitchen and beautiful menu. Aiden deserves big recognition and brings a lot to the team you have at Minami. Kudos and thanks for having us!!

    It was the best sushi, worth every penny. The food was really amazing. It’s pricey but worth it. Our server was great, very knowledgeable. I also think that Minami is better than Miku, just saying.

    Every dish was exquisite. There was a dish for everyone including non sushi seafood eaters. My son enjoyed his ribeye and my daughter enjoyed her soba noodles while we enjoyed fresh sashimi and drinks. We would love to come back when visiting Vancouver in the future.
