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.

So much an experience from the moment we walked in. This was my second visit and first for lunch. There will be more visit for sure. Service food and atmosphere were very next level! The food is as beautiful as it is tasty. Our server was very helpful and informative.
The whole restaurant felt vibrant and welcoming. My daughter had her first experience and was so thrilled she can't wait to go back to try the dinner menu!

Great sushi/rolls place. Best of kind I had in Van. A bit on expensive side, but that’s Van :) you pay for great food and excellent service. Our waitress (forgot her name unfortunately) was super knowledgeable about the menu: food and drinks.

A quiet spot for some incredible sushi! Would recommend dining early - we could only make a reservation for 9PM and it felt a bit too quiet for a Friday night. Must try and sushi sampler!

The Kaiseki menus were both great. We got the oceanfront Kaiseki and it was very tasty and had good variety.

They really allow you to taste the best of the best.

It was for my son’s birthday. We sat down and waited over 10min and had to ask to see who our waiter. Prime rib steak ordered was kind of cold. Felt the food was sub par today compared to other times. We did not even know who our server was really. Asked for water refill and never got it. For Miku, this was a very unexpected experience.

We went for our 3rd anniversary and Miku made it so special. Every time a worker would come to our table they would say happy anniversary. They made our dessert special and wrote happy anniversary. I would definitely recommend coming for any special occasion because they made ours such a wonderful experience. Their food was amazing we did the Miku tasting menu!

High quality food, delicious, outstanding display of every course. The serve is very professional and explained to us what is featured in each course. It was my son's birthday yesterday, and we ordered 3 sets of Miku Kaiseki Dinner (8 course). All courses are exceptionally delicious. I am very impressed by the Duck Breast, Scallop Sashimi, Hokkaido Scallop and A5 Miyazaki Wagyu Nigiri with Uni. I have never tasted any scallop and uni sashimi with this level of freshness and sweetness before. My son also ordered Sake Pairing. Very pleased.

Our dinner at Miku will remain very special as we were there to celebrate a very special milestone. We have been at Miku a few times before and have always been treated with excellent food and service and a unique ambience given the location by the water next to Canada Place. We were fortunate being served by Kana that evening and the pastry chef making a very special arrangement to our dessert was the "cherry on top" of a memorable time spent with family.

Our server was extremely nice. The food was amazing and presented extremely well. The dessert was the star of the show. The Green Tea Opera was presented beautifully and cake was soft and moist. Definitely try this location out.

We chose this place based on reviews. In our opinion this place is overrated. People paying $$$$ for a view, not for food. The person with a lot of fine dining dinners I would not recommend this place for my friends even with their view. Sorry...

We reserved a table outside for our anniversary weeks ahead. Got there, one of the hostess told us it would be 5-10 min wait or we can sit in a middle of the restaurant or Close to the toilet inside.
Told her we will wait, 15 min went by, went back to check. Apparently our table was given away by mistake, it would be 1hr wait. Took a table inside after all. Very frustrating as the hostess gave unfriendly energy right when we first got there, seemed like she did not want to work& confused. Felt like we reserved ahead for a special occasion but table options that was offered was as if we just walked in without reservation. Very disappointing. At least our server was great & made up for it. Dinner menu is smaller than we remembered, maybe because of re opening after Covid. Not sure if will go back.
Also was told afterwards that patio is reserved for walk ins, not sure if that was made up on the fly? I would suggest Miku states that on the reservation system when patrons are booking. As a customer, maybe you should call and reserve over the phone if you want to sit outside.

Menu is dated and pricey. Not as innovative as you would hope. Nothing really changes here. That being said the fish is fresh.

The two girls upon checking in at the hostess desk had to no personality for such fine restaurant I expect better. First impression was not impressed. Requested a quiet table and they put us next to 5 loud ladies. Do the check-in hostess even look at our requests? Asked to move and finally after 20 minutes we were placed at a quiet table. The food was beyond great. Probably the best sushi in town just need the hostess to be more customer friendly.
