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.

A good restaurant in Vancouver. For it is a Japanese restaurant, the dish is really delicate and small amount. But it tastes good. For summer, there would be some small insects in the hall. If you mind that, consider about other restaurants.

If you're craving excellent Japanese food with creative and elegantly-plated dishes, very friendly attentive service, and bonus impressive panoramas of Canada Place and the North Shore mountains, you'll love Miku.

Special honours go to their desserts which were not just appetizing, but were also works of art as you can see from the attached pics.

One cautionary note. You pay for the privilege of eating at this very fine establishment, which shouldn't be too shocking given its DT waterfront location, upscale ambiance, and extremely well-prepared food.

We ordered:
Ebi Fritters (a favourite)
Brussels Sprout Chips
Oshi Aburi Sampler (6pc)
Miku Roll (8pc)
Red Wave Roll (8pc)
Yuzu Mango Cheesecake
2 Scoops of White Peach, and Coconut & Passion Fruit Sorbet (another favourite)

We drank no alcohol and the bill with a good tip came to approx. $135.

They also have a Set Menu option with 4, 5 or 6 courses including special dishes not typically found on the regular menu. We didn't opt for that, but the table next to us did and their dishes looked mouth-watering.

If you're hungry for sushi and seeking the best bang for the buck then Miku is not your best option. BUT, if you're a quality-over-quantity gourmet who appreciates fresh, well-prepared, visually-appealing food served in a fine dining environment, then you will definitely leave Miku with a smile on your face, and in your tummy.

Dinner with a close friend. Her first time out to a restaurant in awhile. Food was excellent. We both felt very safe. We sat outside but there were overhead space heaters as it was a bit chilly that night. Sashimi just as fresh as ever and the oshii was so delicious.

We went for dinner and was sat near a window seat, the views were amazing as we caught the sunset. The food was superb and delicious. The price was on the higher end but worth every penny. 10/10 would come back and bring friends or a loved one for a date night/hangout.

I had a great experience at Miku Restaurant. Their dishes were unique and delicious, the staff were very accommodating, and the view of the harbor was great. Definitely expect to spend at least $60 for a full meal, but the quality makes it all worth it.

You have to call them to get the table on seaside. OpenTable app reservation doesn't allow to access to seaside. It's ridiculous rule.

One of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. Food is always excellent. Service is always great. Great location. Management has done an adequate job with physical distancing the customers. Only thing I dislike is the amount of flies in and around the restaurant. Seems to be a constant problem every time I visit.

We had a reservation at 8pm in the patio with harbour view and we were the first who showed up at the place (at 7:50). Not only they made us wait for 15 minutes n didn’t give us a table but also they gave tables to other people who also had reservations for 8 o’clock for “patio”! And when we asked the reason, they just simply lied to us and told us that those people took a table inside which later we’ve seen those people in the patio as well! The employee just lied to us for no reason which was a really unprofessional way of responding to customers and is such a shame for a restaurant like Miku! What’s more disappointing is that after wasting our time for 15 minutes, they gave us a table which barely had a harbour view n mostly street view and this was after calling and emphasizing that we would like to have a table with harbour view! (Not to mention that we made a reservation over 2 weeks ago and noted that we need a table with harbour view). Overall, we had a very disappointing experience at Miku restaurant, and we didn’t expect that from such a place like that!

We were celebrating our 20th anniversary. I loved that I was able to reserve a table on the patio as most restaurants work on a first come basis for outdoor seating, so I was very impressed with that option! We had the perfect table for this occasion with a beautiful view, the service was impeccable and the food worth every penny! Our green tea opera dessert was to die for!!! Overall I give it a 10!!!

Miku's team was well equipped for socially distanced dining. The food was top notch and didn't miss a beat. The atmosphere was great and the team has thoughtfully selected the best seats in the house for the limited seating.
