Japanese
Specializing in Aburi, or flamed-seared, sushi, the act of applying flame directly and lightly searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the seafood. 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.

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

**Please be advised that we will hold reservations up to an additional 15 minutes after your reservation time, after which your table will be released.

Thee best first experience I have ever had. We celebrated my partners birthday and from the service to the food and atmosphere, they’ve exceeded my expectations above and beyond. Truly exquisite food and outstanding service. I recommend their kaiseki menu to try at least once!

Food was delicious as always! It can be quite pricy but the location is beautiful, ambiance is nice and the food is outstanding! We ordered 2 Premium Sushi Lunch, a salmon oshi sushi and a yuzu mango cheesecake! Everything was delicious. The only complaint is that the service was not great for the price that you’re paying to dine here. Our waiter wasn’t attentive, didn’t make any recommendations, wasn’t personable and we weren’t offered any green tea. We remember the service being outstanding in the past so this was a little disappointing.

Came here from out of town after reading up on it for my partner's birthday. Absolute the best sushi I have ever had in my entire life topped with phenomenal service. The server even bought her a desert for her birthday. Would recommend this place to everyone.

Too much mayo and stickiness in most sushi. Sashimi was really fresh of high quality though. Prawn Fritters were not nice at all, batter way too thick!

One of the greatest sushi we ever had outside of Japan. Aburi cuisine was an incredible new discovery for us. Amazing service. Needs to add a few classic ingredients somewhere in their menu such as sea urchin and salmon roe. Ambiance and music volume were fine. Great choice of sakes, especillay the Aburi Ginjo (exclusive label)

Expectations were high from my Toronto experience with Miku’s, but unfortunately the Vancouver visit was not on par.

They were running a little behind when we arrived, which is understandable, but we were asked to wait outside next to a homeless man whom was unleashing his anger with the current state of affairs at nearby passers.

A crowd of concerned staff had gathered in the front and were staring at the angry man...why we were asked to stand outside next to him is beyond me. I respect times have changed with Covid and the homeless are people too, but if the staff felt uneasy than surely their guests would. Only after objecting were we accepted back inside for a reservation running late.

The night was more uneventful thereafter, but the service was bland and without personality, and the waiter found it troublesome to elaborate on the variety of sushi and sashimi my date would have liked more information on.

Although, I enjoyed the food, I did not find the experience and the price to be worth the trouble.

We may have arrived at the wrong place and the wrong time with the pandemic, but we took the time out of our schedule for a date at Miku’s and a little hospitality would have been an excellent companion to the meal.

In a word fantastic What really needs to be said that hasn’t been said a million times. There is no doubting that Miku is one of if not the number one sushi restaurant in the city of Vancouver ( sorry Tojo )

The food and service was wonderful! The ambiance was not. We were seated at a round table near the food preparation counter. It was far too bright and I felt like I was eating in a cafeteria. We asked for the light to be dimmed at our table. I would return and look for better seating!

This is the first time I have returned to Miku in a couple of years. The menu was different and this could be related to the Pandemic, but I much preferred the previous menu had some main dishes that were excellent and no longer on this menu. Also, previously the room was darker and you felt like you were in a fancier Japanese restaurant, it felt more like a diner which could again be related to the Pandemic and how they have rearranged the space.

I sat on the heated patio (early Oct) which wasn't too chili but definitely needed a light coat/sweater - the view is spectacular of the water/mountains. The food is amazing- some of the best sushi i've ever had. But also had lots of appetizers, the noodles, shrimp etc and all was very very good. Would definitely go back. A bit pricey (particularly on glasses of wine)

It was my first time visiting Vancouver, and I was looking for a place that had the best sushi in the city. I got the platter with 10 different sushi’s for $40. The sushi was excellent (best I’ve ever had) and the price was reasonable. I definitely want to try the location in Toronto!
