From the kitchen, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients are integrated into Minami's dishes to reflect Vancouver's diverse flavours. This culinary approach evokes both the passion and beauty of Aburi cuisine, as each dish is artfully plated on custom-designed Arita Yaki plate ware hand picked by owner Seigo Nakamura from the artisan town of Arita, Japan.
Minami Restaurant offers a dynamic space for both dining and entertaining, including two private dining rooms, a seated lounge, hidden garden patio, and sushi bar.
Our waiter was very attentive. I just hope he mentioned his name when he approached the table. Food was a hit or miss. Overall, it was a good experience.
Service was horrible. The server did not even greet us until 20 minutes later when we were ready to order she served another customer that just sat down. We were not even give water then. She even got our order wrong. She was more interested in hiding in a corner flirting with the manager. I will never go back to Minami. Miku is so much better and I suggest that anyone considering going to Minami to go to Miku instead.
Our absolute must visit every time we come to Vancouver!
Minami offers high-quality sushi and sashimi and beautifully presented dishes. Their food and service are consistent every visit. We definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!
I had the dine out menu and it was excellent. As my first time going to Minami, it was a wonderful sample of what kind of dishes they offer. Great staff. I will be coming back.
Service is extremely slow. We waited 15-20 minutes to be seated (we were on time for our reservation) and the first dish was served after 20-25 minutes. We are never going to go back.
Amazing as always! I love introducing friends to your restaurant.
Perfect dine out
Food is good but aburi sushi had turned cold when s arrived at table. The hot food was of good temperature though
Minami is just not special anymore, there are other options for aburi sushi. I think we'll be skipping Minami next year, sorry!
Delicious every time. A go to!
Not great service at all. Specially for a birthday? But the food was amazing
Sat at the bar and the bartender was phenomenal. Quick response, recommended King Salmon (which was out of this world) and was friendly and personable.
Great overall experience. Can't wait to visit again.
I had high expectations of this place as it was associated with Miku. Our friendly server was wonderful, however I can't really say that much about the food. We ordered the $45 sampling for lunch ( it was ALOT of food). Nothing really stood out for me as it wasn't really all that special. I don't think I would revisit the restaurant again as there are so many other places to try.
Delicious food and knowledgeable server
Very good food. Hope they have a smaller portion for senior
Waitress was very good
Lovely time with my mother, sushi was spectacular and a nice variety - the salmon aburi is to die for! Only issue is service was very slow and the server never really apologized or let us know what was going on - if we had been in a hurry this would have been a problem.
Food was good. Friendly hostesses but some servers felt a little snobbish.
Great taste and combination of ingredients and food
compare to miku, minami has a bit less options... for lunch, not sure about dinner. the taste and service is just same outstanding, I would prefer minami lunch since its much quieter than miku :)
Celebrating family’s Birthday !
Amazing tasting menu lunch - delicious, varied, filling and incredible value. Great staff, too!
Server made many mistakes and didn’t apologize or even acknowledge that mistakes were made but the food was excellent.
We enjoyed lunch on the patio and ordered Premium Zen set as it was our anniversary. Signature sushi was amazing, and baked salmon was one of the best I ever had. Portions were generous so we were pleasantly full and happy.
Only suggestion for the menu would be to replace too acidic beet salad with goat cheese for something more subtle.
Overall, we were quite happy with our choice for lunch at Minami, and have enjoyed delicious meal, excellent service and peaceful auietness of the patio on a summer day.
Great service.. excellent food quality n portion with their Zen Premium Lunch Set.
Outstanding service and attention to detail.
Hands down, the best sushi I have ever had. I traveled to Vancouver from North Carolina and sought out sushi since I love it so much and there is much fresher fish here. Vancouver has a plethora of sushi restaurants, but our experience at Minami was simply divine. We had an appetizer, 2 rolls of their signature flame seared sushi, sake flight, and cocktails. Everything was delicious but the flame seared sushi blew me away. My husband and I came here for our anniversary and it exceeded my already high expectations!
Celebrating birthday for my best friend. The surprised ice cream birthday wish was very appreciated.
Great as always
We sat out on the patio. It is much quieter and a nicer ambiance out there. Service was great. Definitely recommend.

Out server was excellent! We learned so much from him being out first time. Can’t wait to be back!

Servers and host was very friendly and attentive
Very great experience, Minami never fails to disappoint. A slight technical error caused our food to be served in the wrong order (which I did not mind at all), however the restaurant made every possible attempt to enhance our dining experience and the General Manager himself went as far as even offering us dessert over this simple oversight. I will be returning here as much as I can
I ordered a la carte and felt the flavours weren't spectacular and the 2 rolls, 1 appy and 2 pieces of nigiri were NOT worth the $60 I as charged. I've had sushi that was of equal flavour and quality for half that price at multiple places around the city. It's a typical Yaletown spot that caters to people with more money than taste.
One of the best sushi places I have ever been to! Incredible food and amazing service!! 100% recommend because if you are in Vancouver it is a must, we were only in town for 2 days and went both days because its just that good!! The rolls in the pictures were my favorite but honestly everything was delicious❤️
Beautiful atmosphere on the patio.
Some food was super good but some was average. Restaurant was packed and it took a while to get our dishes. It was pretty noisy but fun vibe.
It was a nice lunch we had. Lunch menu choices are adequate. Food portion is fine. Place is clean and neat. Service is great.
