We had dinner at Miku last night and they were kind enough to accommodate us on late notice including our 10-month old son. The waiter made extra efforts to ensure we understood our dining options and working with some dietary restrictions. The location would be hard to beat and we all enjoyed our meal. It's not cheap, but you definitely... More

The Aburi Oshi sushi was by far my favourite - the Ebi has a hint of lime zest and the Salmon just melts in your mouth with an explosion of flavour - No soy required if you really want to appreciate the taste. Sushi/sashimi and a variety of appetizers- colourful and creative. My children love sushi so this was amazing... More

Great Japanese cuisine -- very modern. If you want traditional Japanese food, this is not the place to go to. Instead, dishes are presented in a very interesting way. No soy sauce please. Food is very tasty already! Great view as well. Could be very noisy, so try to get the "private" room behind. Basically a social place --. Good... More

All ingredients were so fresh! We sat at the bar and the ambiance was great. Interesting to see all the cooks preparing the different plates. A must try: one of their Aburi Oshi Sushi (flame-seared).

My husband and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Miku last night. We ordered the Beef Carpaccio which was a generous size, the edamame which is unremarkable (same as any old sushi place), and the salmon oshi which was just as good as the other reviews said it was. The Ebi fritters, while not on my diet, were scrumptious! Perfectly... More

Miku restaurant offers traditional Japanese flavours using fresh, regional ingredients. The waterfront location offers sensational views of the Burrard Inlet. You can see the menu and reserve on their website. As this was a special occasion I had made reservations well in advance, requesting the Kaisen (six course chef’s tasting menu). Although the restaurant was very busy and a long... More

We chose this restaurant because, though there are many excellent restaurants in Vancouver, it sounded like it might be an interesting choice. We were there the day before Valentine's day and, even at 5:30, it was quite full. They were offering their special menu that day as well and, after much decision making back and forth, we went for the... More

The food quality was excellent! Inventive sushi options and other options. Service was right. Uncomfortable waiting area (they could have a bar or a more inviting ambiance). Dinning room was too dark and very noisy. Modern decoration.

This is an over-the-top, high-end Japanease restaurant, offering probably the best sushi in Vancouver. Very different from other standard sushi restaurants is that it offers aburi styled (i.e. flame seared) sushi. Presentation is fantastic and over-the-top. The waitress was extremely helpful in explaining the items, style of preparation and cooking. Visit their Web site for more info. Their Soba Peperoncino,... More

My husband and I visited Miku as a treat during our honeymoon in Vancouver. Our server was so attentive and helpful so full marks in that respect. We decided to go for the tasting menu, which was delicious but the portions were absolutely huge and in hindsight I wish we had opted for more sushi. The sushi itself was good,... More

Description
We specialize in Aburi, or flamed-seared sushi, which was developed nearly a century ago in Japan. The act of applying fire directly and lightly sear is known to enhance the natural flavors of the fish. Miku owner, Seigo Nakamura, innovated the Aburi concept by creating speciality sauces, using non-traditional Japanese ingredients, to complement the unique taste properties of each fish. Miku Restaurant is within walking distance from the Pan Pacific Hotel, Canada Place, Trade & Exhibition Centre, IMAX Theatre, Cruise Ship Terminals and Sea Bus. If shopping downtown, join us for lunch and re-energize. It's entrance is at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way, overlooking the east cruiseship terminal at Canada Place.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
