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.

Lovely evening spent here. Would have preferred to sit in the main area as the back room where we sat was lacking a bit in ambiance but otherwise the food and service was fantastic!

Outdoor patio ended up being closed for the season but the Miku team was kind, understanding, and accommodating. They opened up the heated patio for us to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was a very sweet lunch for sure! Thank you!!!

Wow! I took my hubby here for an afternoon birthday celebration. I've been waiting to visit after hearing from so many friends what a spectacular place this is, we had to go!

We ordered 2 of the Lunch Shokai which has 2 appetizers, but I had to try a few more, so we also ordered the spicy edamame (yummmm) and the ebbi fritters.

Everything was done to perfection. While we've both been avid fans of good sushi and have a few favourite restaurants in our hood, I've never had sushi this perfect. The mix of flavours, the freshness of the fish. Everything...amazing. We will definitely come back again.

I recommend visiting for lunch if it's your first time as there is a good variety offered. Also, we lucked out as it was a stunning fall Vancouver afternoon, and the view was breathtaking.

All in all, I give it 5 stars!

If not for outstanding guest service by Jasmine your host manager and Éva your best server, I might not come back for mediocre food, poorly priced items and average portions.
Perhaps it is the location. But don’t you think all the more you have the chance to showcase the best of freshest seafood to be found in Vancouver? Am afraid your restaurant failed in that aspect. Your other restaurant is much better.

I have been to Mike before and it was good. This time we went for my boyfriends birthday and decided to get the sashimi, Oshi and some nigiri. The quality was good and for its price it was reasonable. We were, however, expecting a better quality of fish from a place that is rated so high in the city. We have been to smaller more intimate places with much better quality of fish. The fish was good, but not the best we’ve had compared to other places in the city. I think the talk up of Miku is more for the atmosphere and their drinks rather than quality of fish. I personally wouldn’t make this my next choice in the future and would stick to a less hyped up place. I would pay double the price for the quality if they happened to serve it for sure.

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.

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.
