Description: 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.

I have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoyed the food and the service. When I was there a week ago on Friday night, the place was very busy even at 9:30 pm so we had to wait for the food little longer.

Fantastic decision to bring some out-of-towners to this restaurant. Food was awesome and service was fabulous. My guests were so elated to be treated to fine Japanese dining.

It was nine of us that went to dinner. I thought it was over priced for what we got. Menu was limited. Ambiance was great. Presentation was excellent. Taste of food was average

Had the opportunity to eat here for both lunch and dinner as highly recommended by local friends. The dishes were both visually appealing and tasted very fresh with lots of great and simple flavors. Heard a lot about the crispy scallops but sadly it was no longer being served though I’m hoping they’ll add it back on due to popular demand. Service was very attentive at dinner though less so at lunch but they were also mobbed at lunch time and I could tell they were doing their best to make sure everyone got what they needed in a timely manner.
