About
Miku Vancouver specializes in Aburi, or flamed-seared, sushi, which was developed nearly a century ago in Japan. The act of applying fire directly to sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the fish, creating a new and exciting culinary experience. 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) 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

If you enjoy interesting and thoughtful Japanese cuisine, try their Kaiseki menus - really good! Mine include one dish which was probably the best cooked halibut I've ever had.

My husband and I visited Miku during a weekend trip to Toronto from the States. After reading the positive reviews online and pursuing the yummy menu, we decided on this place for my birthday dinner. Overall, it really was a good experience, except that I...got food poisoning. The good things first: The service was impeccable. The staff was friendly and the food came out quickly (but not in a rushed way). The team surprised me with a complementary dessert for my birthday, which I appreciated. The ambience was also lovely for a romantic dinner and not too loud despite it being crowded. The food itself was delicious. We ordered the Miku Signature Sushi Selection, the Aburi Oshi Sampler, a few specialty rolls, and nigiri. Everything tasted amazing. But then the bad: Unfortunately, I got food poisoning. For a CA$100 per person dinner, this should not have happened! We went at around 6:30pm on a Saturday night, so the fish should have been very fresh. Miku - please be a bit more careful about the raw seafood you're serving! Overall, the dining experience was nice but would've been a lot better if I hadn't gotten food poisoning from a $200 meal!More

I was visiting Canada Place with my family and we felt like having some dinner. My son found this place on Google and it turned out it was just a few step away from where we were. Best Choice Ever! ! ! I am not...a salmon person, but I have to say, we try the waiter's recommendation on the specialty roll and guess what? . . . We order a second one! ! ! Everybody in the table enjoyed their meal.More

Best Japanese restaurant in North America! We always eat here when we visit BC. It's amazing, innovative, delicious, Michelin star quality and staff delivers excellent service. We've tried their dinners and Kaiseki menu. They do an outstanding job to keep up their standards. Money and...time well spent guaranteed.More

I had the sashimi lunch and it was the best sashimi that I have had in quite a while. Ahi, two different salmons, yellow Fin, and mackarel. It came with Miso soup. Service by Jackie was excellent. My friend got the aburi sushi and just...loved it.More

This is one of the top Japanese restaurants in downtown Vancouver across Canada Place. The sashimi is very fresh & their Oshi Sushi is a must try. We had a very nice dinning experience with a nice view & wonderful service. Special thanks to Scarlett...for her attentiveness to secure us a nice table with a view.More

This place is AMAZING! The service was top notch, the view great and the sushi is out of this world! We have never eaten aburi oshi sushi before and now I am obsessed with trying to make it at home. We also had some rolls...that were delicious. Honestly, we went in with low expectations because of a bad dinner the night before at highly recommended Indian restaurant. However, we were blown away! Don’t hesitate and grab a reservation as fast as you can!More

Fantastic sushi and great service. Very nice views and atmosphere. The Oshi’s are a must order. One of the best overall sushi restaurants we’ve been to.

This was such nice experience. We got the Lunch Shokai. Everything tasted great. It was very expensive (in my opinion) but soooo good. Savored every bite.

We went for dinner quite late, seen no kids at all. The „background“ music is quite loud, so I would not recommend it for kids.

This restaurant is around Canada Place so there must be disability parking in the area. I have not seen any myself. I don't know about free parking. Parking in this area is quite expensive.

There are different versions so you would need to ask a server or call ahead - but I had a sampler platter and distinctly remember none having dairy. Not the usual sushi sauces.
