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 took my in-laws with my husband to Miku to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Our server was so sweet to give us a cake with “happy 40th anniversary” on it, and wished them happy happy anniversary many times. I don’t think I need to mention how good the food is—you can always expect fresh seafood at Miku! Thank you again!

    The ambience is good. Candles were given when it starts getting dark Staff were patient to explain menu items We were seated kind of close to the window upon request via email a day before, which we appreciated a lot because we understand that it’s hard to score a table next to the window in such short notice. Food were good but portion could’ve been larger. Overall great experience

    Second time there, we had a great night and the food was amazing, the server was super friendly and explained the menu and gave us a few of his favourites that we would not of thought to try, but upon his recommendation we gave it a go. Will be taking friends from out of town in the near future

    Gps provided by open table does Not take you to the restaurant but a sketchy parking lot under the building with no access to the restaurant. The restaurant itself was lovely and worth the treck in heals. The staff were phenomenal and helped us safely return to our car after. The food is was out of this world. Get the Green Tea Opera Cake, you will not regret it

    Excellent food, delicately prepared. I found the sushi fancier Thani was able to appreciate. The chef prepared his award-winning nigiri and maki sushi with ultra refined rice that was smaller and more delicate than the traditional but without apparent benefit to the taste. I had to ask for soy sauce as the combinations were so subtle it was supposedly not needed. And yet, I missed it when it wasn’t there. I should have perhaps ordered the traditional sushi instead. The miso soup was nice enough but about the same as most decent establishments.

    A fantastic experience and easily the most creative sushi lunch I have enjoyed in years. Taken to celebrate belated birthdays and left amazed and satisfied. The touch of the torch on the pressed sushi was second only to the Aburi Chirashi Tart—honestly one of the best seafood dishes I have had in Vancouver. Topped by incredibly knowledgeable service with obvious passion for the dishes and sake alike (the tasting flight of which was the perfect accompaniment to an elevated sushi experience), it was a most memorable meal marred only slightly by not being plied with a desert menu ; ) Having known the room well in its prior incarnation, Miku's re-imagining of the space is also the perfect reflection of the waterfront.

    Was recommended by friend and saw the restaurant on almost every single must dine-in lists, so figured to try it out for my birthday. They do seating until pretty late, as it seems like they can get pretty busy. We opted for the Miku Kaiseki which they kindly accommodated by switching few items due to food allergy. Overall, the experience was great. Favorite was the sashimi, somehow the rice on nigiri felt a bit dry. Staff that brought out every course explained the ingredients well. Staff were very attentive. Wish they coursed the meal better as we had to wait a while between each course.

    I lived in Japan for 5 years. This is a Japanese restaurant that serves fresh fish. Most serve thawed frozen fish. The miso soup is the best I have had in many years. Service was good, food delivery was fast for a sushi restaurant. Prices are high but that reflects, the fresh fish, location and authenticity of the food.
