A beautiful restaurant in Yaletown Vancouver. The food is real Japanese, some of the dishes has a twist - which makes it more interesting. Mane guests were Japanese, which is a kind of certificate for me that the food is authentic. Love the row Tuna...More

We recommended this restaurant by our hotel for our last night in Canada and what an excellent recommendation! We were all a little dubious as we were all sushi newbies and the kids were a little concerned they wouldn’t like anything. Our waiter was just...More

Very well done sushi aburi. Very creative, but not traditional sushi, although that is available. Fantastic service- Shahin was the best!

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting
amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant,

Established as the second location of the Aburi Brand in North America, Minami Restaurant offers a combination of Japanese and West Coast cuisine in a comfortable, rustic atmosphere. Minami presents the Aburi take on red meats and seafood dishes to enjoy with your choice of sake, wine, or specialty cocktail. From intimate gatherings with family and friends to professional corporate events, our welcoming atmosphere with amazing cuisine and impeccable service creates a lasting dining experience. Aburi Sushi is a corporate symbol of our company, enjoyed by local Vancouverites and international travellers alike. Minami is excited to introduce the innovative concept of Aburi Sushi appetizers. This combination of our shari (sushi rice), cooked using a unique traditional method, and our flame searing technique has turned sushi into a truly exciting culinary experience. At Minami, Aburi sushi is best enjoyed as a zensai (appetizer) course and, paired perfectly alongside your favourite beverage, sets the stage for the rest of your Aburi dining experience. Our entrée menu places an emphasis on our beef, poultry, and seafood cuisine. Our dedicated team of chefs perfects our entrées not only by focusing on the protein, but also by pairing it with fresh, seasonal vegetables in order to complement the rich flavour of the meat. We insist that a great entrée must be accompanied by an equally great side. Minami is the sister restaurant of Miku Restaurant.
