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.

Located at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way

    I've never had better sushi. Incredibly fresh, incredibly tasty, and incredibly expensive - but worth it to have such amazing sushi. The Wagyu beef appetizer was melt in your mouth. Will definitely be back, but only special occasions as it costs 2x other date nights!

    I booked the Kaiseki Holiday experience with wine/sake pairing for my partner's birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! The presentation of each course was exceptional, a feast for our eyes. The beverage pairing was both thoughtfully and professionally executed. We appreciated the presentation of flavour notes and rationale for the choices. Highly recommend and will certainly be dining at Miku again!

    Miku is always a wonderful experience. From the moment you walk in the service is perfect. The staff are so friendly and polite. The food is fantastic. The aburi is to die for. Hands down the best sushi you will find in vancouver.

    The food was good and overpriced for sure @ $22 a roll, but the lighting and table seemed outdated. The light was dark and not a good kind of dark that made the atmosphere pleasant, but the overall lighting made the restaurant feel old. We were asked to wait in a dark area, and it seemed like the staff forgot to turn the lights on, and the team was slamming doors right beside where the guests were sitting. The table appears sticky, and the lamination is old and worn off. It was a great restaurant that was worth its price point, but to me, it's no longer a high-quality restaurant.

    The price and menu would suggest a more “elevated” dining experience. Instead the atmosphere was more like a family style restaurant, with bright lights and screaming kids ( Saturday 7pm reservation). Food was good but expensive given the fast food ambiance.

    This is hands down the best Sushi I’ve ever eaten in my life. I’ve gone to Michelin Star Sushi places in San Francisco and spent 3x the cost and it doesn’t hold a candle to how good Miku was. I will be coming back; it’s worth flying up just to eat here.

    The aburi sushi is the best item to order. Octopus was a little bit bland. The scallops were good but tiny. Overall it is what you expect. Smaller portions, but taste doesn't really live up to expectations. Service was great though.

    Very mediocre food with the fancy pretense of being a great restaurant. It seemed more like a factory! I ordered the 6 course menu which was so blah and mediocre. It’s too expensive for what it is. I tried many Michelin starred restaurants in Japan, France and the US so I know what I’m talking about. If they offer a tasting menu — they should do something creative! There was nothing creative about their tasting menu: especially the ridiculous third course of sashimi😂(who includes just simple cut fish in a tasting menu!!!!) I couldn’t say wow about even one dish. So the take away: if you are traveling to Vancouver like I am, don’t come here! It’ll be a waste of your time!

    Over staffed and under served. Nice location selling mediocre sushi at premium price. This place is what I would call “shopping mall” sushi or “chinese sushi”. There was nothing Japanese about the taste of the food or the professionalism of the staff. Two thumbs down.

    Miku is my must visit restaurant any time I visit Vancouver! The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. It is pricier than your average sushi place, however the price is more than reasonable for the quality of food and service, would 10/10 recommend.

    Had an amazing experience at Miku. My partner and I were visiting from Seattle for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and Miku proved to be the perfect place to do so! The staff treated us with so much care and the food was outstanding. Some of the freshest fish I have ever tried. We can’t wait to go back!

    We had the set dinners and they were well prepared and delicious. Fresh fish, aburi sushi was incredible and very creative amuse bouche. Food was very beautifully plated. Only thing didn't enjoy as much was the cheesecake as it was not as favourful as the green opera cake. Service was excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff.

    We’ve eaten at Miku several times. Reserved for our daughter’s birthday for this visit. Even with a reservation, we waited to be seated and were then sat in the back of the restaurant at a table easily forgotten about. And we were forgotten. Service was not up to the previous standard set by the restaurant. A dish we ordered was completely forgotten about. We were never asked if we wanted another beverage, and there was an extremely long wait between our appetizer course and our sushi order.
