About Miku Restaurant

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 searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the fish. 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.

Our entrance is at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way, overlooking the east cruise ship terminal at Canada Place.

**We only will hold reservations up to an additional 15 minutes after your reservation time, after which your table will be released.

Excellent service, our server was well-versed and knowledgeable in whatever we asked him. The food was so well presented and seasoned, nothing too saucy or overdone! My go-to spot for a fancier occasion, and to take out-of towners.

Food as always was superb at Miku. I've been to Miku many times and they maintain a high standard when it comes to their seafood and we were definitely not disappointed this time. The service was a slight miss during this occasion, maybe it's because I'm used to the high level of service in the main dining room. For this occasion we had our department's Christmas dinner at Miku, and because we were a party larger than 6 we were seated in a separate dining room. There seemed to only be one main server assigned to three large tables, and so at times we sat waiting for food and drink orders, when normally in the regular dining room these are automatically addressed. All in all the service wasn't terrible, just not as great as it is typically; ironically the mandatory tip that is added due to our large group is lower (and fitting) compared to what I would normally tip due to slightly poorer service.

I brought some out-of-town colleagues here for dinner and the food and service was excellent. Our server was very accommodating when a couple of people were running late and we didn’t feel rushed at all. We were given great suggestions when asked and the food was interesting and delicious.

It was such a great memorable birthday dinner.
When I got a confirmation call for my reservation, it was impressive that the person on the phone explained well about the menu I asked about. When I got to the restaurant, a hostess at the reception was very welcoming. Our server Abby listened carefully to my request ( I needed to take a bill for everyone because I hosted for my Big 5 Birthday dinner ).
Needless to say, the food was delicately presented to our table and amazing.
Lastly, the manager? in suit working at the restaurant was very helpful for taking pictures for us.

Thank you for the excellent food and hospitality. Definitely, I will dine there again!

We had an outstanding dining experience and the waterfront location was a plus. Despite a problem with our reservation (the online reservation system put us on the day after), staff sorted it out quickly. The salmon oshi sushi and specialty red wave sushi were particularly delicious and we highly recommend them. The menu was diverse and extensive. Our waiter also accommodated our need for menu items without garlic. The only negative was a noisy environment - it was hard to hear our own conversation. We will definitely return next time we visit Vancouver.

The food at Miku was incredible, and so was the service. The aburi oshi sushi is incomparable (well, at least for what you can get in Vancouver) - the rice was soft and perfectly seasoned, while the seafood was fresh and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We had requested a seat with a view on our reservation, and they delivered.
We came here to celebrate my mom's birthday, and they remembered from the reservation, writing "Happy Birthday" on the dessert platter without us having to request it. All in all, this is probably one of my favourite restaurants (though the lighting may be tricky for photos), and the only thing stopping me from going too often is the price.

Amazing food, ambiance and of course the service is top notch!! I took one of my colleague from out of town there that day and my boss, of course great service by thomas and Jon. Though it was a little crowded and noisy that day, however, the food and service made a huge difference. Still remains my most favorite restaurant and one that never disappoint me.

We visited Miku for a double birthday celebration and were seated in the quiet room in the back which was perfect for our elderly grandfather, both for space and sound level. It had a beautiful view of the lit up sails from Canada Place. From the moment we were greeted at the door and throughout the evening, we had exemplary, attentive service. I cannot say enough about how our server went out of his way to meet our needs and provide personalized service to each of us.
We were very happy with all the dishes we ordered from the starters to our meals to the dessert platter we shared. We appreciated the attention to detail in the platings and the food all was well seasoned and fresh.
One of the birthday's was my son's - he has just turned 18 and Miku is already his favourite Vancouver restaurant and we have now celebrated two special occasions there. Looking forward to many returns to Miku!
