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.

Excellent food and service. The seafood is of the highest quality and made to perfection, definitely gourmet/fusion style Japanese sushi, and I would highly recommend for anyone in the mood for fine dining sushi restaurant. Superb!

The waitress Lorrene never say a word, or ask how things are doing. We think she is definitely not interested in doing her job. I hope she understand we went to 5 star restaurants every week, and all the servers are very polite and enthusiastic. She is a big disappointment for us. My friend wants to leave right after sitting down for one minute.

The food was decent but the service is terrible.

Our waitress was very slow and kept chatting with other staff. She was the only one who did not check her tables as often as waiters/waitresses. We need to wait for our food and bill for a long time. It took us 2 hours to finish our lunch, which is ridiculous!

She even made a mistake on the bill -it was 45 dollars less. (We are very honest and we told the restaurant manager.) We will not come to Muki again.

The food is delicious and service is great, too. But the amount is good for ladies not for guys. My husband went to Ramen after Dine out dinner. The desert only had one choice for Dine out menu, and my daughter didn’t like coconut.

We had booking for 11.45 and arrived 10 mins earlier. There were 2 window tables seated, although there were a few window tables vacant at the time, but we were not allowed to be seated at those table. The waiter says they were prior booked by telephone. I do not understand why we could not reserve a window table when we booked online with you.

Dine Out lunch was great. We enjoyed the mussels and sushi platter. Dessert was a bit on the sweet side. We asked to sit by the window and they were able to accommodate our request. Thank you to the host/service team!

Great sushi restaurant. It was my first time eating here, and the server thoroughly explained each roll from the Lunch Shoaki, and I appreciated to know what I was eating.
Highly recommend.

This is a one and done thing - I've always walked by Miku and always wondered what the food was like - The quality and good but value is pretty awful. I just can't justify 9 small pieces of sushi, as gourmet as it is, to cost $40. I spent $230 between two people, and we went to mcdonalds after.

Christina - our server, did a wonderful job,
Sashimi is good, temperature a little high,
Oyster so fresh and delicious,
Sake always good,
If you are a beef lover, don't order filet mignon, you will be disappointed.

I had 4 drinks in one hour and was completely sober and was Not displaying any bad behaviour and the server in front of everyone decided that was against some sort of rule he made up, and it was embarrassing and I I’ve spent tons of money at Miku over the the last several years and will never return because of this.

I heard good reviews from non Japanese friends so I wanted to try out. Food was good and the presentation was nice too. Good for one time visit.

We were supposed to have coconuts dessert but our servers brought us matcha dessert instead without asking us if we like matcha. I don't like red beans that contained lots in matcha cake and my bf doesn't like matcha. He should have informed us coconuts ones were sold out and if we liked matcha beforehand.

Excellent value for the dine out lunch 2021 menu. Everything tasted excellent & looked beautiful. Just be wary about the sushi tart entree in the dine out lunch menu, in a way it was misleading as we had imagined it would appear differently. We asked for a knife to cut into the fist sized entree. Otherwise, the staff were courteous and provided good service.

This is my number 1 place for seared sushi in Vancouver. The only two things that prevent me from going very often are the price and the parking around the area. Otherwise, everything is superb in Miku!
