Great all around. Can't wait to return. Had a memorable evening with my daughter. I was two days in Vancouver and happy that I chose Minami.
We had a good meal. Chose the Omakasi Blue Ocean which we enjoyed. The sushi selection was good but not exceptional. Enjoyed their selection of sake and cocktails. Service was excellent
Aiden was an amazing waiter!! Woukd for sure come back here :)
We were there celebrating my dad's birthday. Service was great! Food wasn't above average but not amazing. My chirashi tart was a little too fishy tasting for my liking. My husband enjoyed his tart and didn't have the same thoughts, so maybe I'm a little more sensitive? They gave us 2 desserts on the house for the celebration. Overall, an excellent experience and will be back again =)
The staff was so kind and accommodating. The ambiance was great inside and we were seated outside but was still a nice setup out there. The sushi was amazing and it was cool that they offer half orders of the rolls - try as much as possible! I wish they offered more sushi rolls but all were delicious.
Fantastic dinner. Food was delicious, especially the Sable fish.
The food at Minami is always delicious. We had aburi salmon and aburi ebi, as well as a split order of 2 different rolls. Didn't know the split order was an option until the server told us. Cocktails at Minami are also top notch.
Awesome experience. We will return on our next trip
Amazing food, amazing service!
The quality of the food and the great service is a winner!
Amazing sushi! Staff is really knowledgeable
The food was outstanding, and that is exactly what we came for!
Highly recommend the Salmon & Ebi Oshi.
Service staff was amazing and the food was very delicious
The reception not friendly! The waiter good!
It was date night for my spouse and I. Minami was an excellent choice. We went with the Blue Ocean Shokai set menu of 5 courses including dessert. The chef's selection of sashimi was our first course and consisted of salmon, tuna and something I can't recall; but they were all delicious. Next up was the appetizer of sterling silver beef carpaccio. It was a beautifully plated dish with nikiri ponzu, wasabi chimchurri, shaved grana padano, a sous vide egg, wasabi creme fraiche, caper crisps and organic baby greens. Mix it all up, we were told, to take advantage of the layers of flavours and excellent advice it was...the dish seemed like an eclectic mix of things at first, but turned out to be a well thought out fusion dish that simply melted in your mouth. I would suggest that they provide a piece of flat bread to soak up every delicious bit of sauce. The entree was a surf and turf miso sablefish and soy pork belly. The sablefish deliciously melted away after I placed it in my mouth. Although I am not usually a big fan of pork belly, I was pleasantly converted into a fan of these bite sized pieces. The sablefish stole the show as it was a generous portion and simply sublime. The sushi, as expected, was a plate of seven outstanding pieces picture perfect on the plate and each one an explosion of flavour. The green tea opera dessert was outstanding, as well. Too much to describe, but it was soooooo delicious and accompanied by fabulous green tea ice cream. The dinner was outstanding. We had only had take out before. Other than a few yells by the hostess (our table was near the front), the ambience was perfect for a date night and our waiter, Aiden, was very attentive and provided us with superb service. We will be back.
The best,the first,the Numbers one ! Thank YOU Mickey if îs corect … hope to SEE YOU very soon.
As always, Minami is the best spot. Clean, safe, and outstanding seafood!
Delicious food and great service. Had the spicy edamame, tuna tartare was good but not a standout, the salmon Oshi is mouthwateringly good, the hamachi and kanpachi nigiri were so good and fresh and the sablefish was also delicious. Melt in your mouth goodness. Also had two no. Alcoholic cocktails that were refreshing and tasty. The staff is polite, professional and knowledgeable. A pleasurable experience all around.
Just go and eat the Salmon & Ebi Oshi... unbelievable.
The desserts are also outstanding.
We enjoyed our meal, on the patio.. It was pleasant and as good as we remembered it before the pandemic struck.
We had a charming server, who was courteous , helpful and not intrusive.
WE did not feel rushed..
She was very accommodating when we asked for ask to pack our take home boxes.
A charming young woman. I am sorry i forgot her name..
The food was amazing! The outdoor dining area is so enchanting and romantic, we will definitely be back again.
It was a very good, surprisingly pleasant evening, thanks to the perfect service, incredible cocktails, and good food! (We tried 3 cocktails, all of them were on the level!)
Excellent experience. Great food and service! Definitely will keep coming back!
Absolutely amazing! Never had sushi so amazing, how do you do it! Will be coming back
Amazing lunch !
Our server, Harvest, was fantastic. Very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. Great experience!
Delicious food and great service. Definitely recommend!
Never disappoints. Must try and must revisit
Great food. Beef carpaccio & tofu salad were delicious to start. We then shared the sushi plate & steak. Miso caramel icecream to finish was fabulous on a hot day!
Amazing! We were surprising the guests we were meeting and the hosts did an amazing job making the experience seamless! Amazing food - we will be back.
Its a great restaurant. Great food, the waiter is nice and funny. Unfortunately, my girlfriend (now ex) break up with me roughly 2 weeks later. I will probably not be going here anytime soon.
Great spot, the Premium Zen is definitely high value for the cost! Enjoyed this high-end dining experience
Great location, great decor, great food. The servers are very knowledgeable. Could be better if I was asked 'how is everything' less frequently.
One of the best Japanese restaurants in town.
For an upscale restaurant, it's quite unassuming and unpretentious, almost laid back. The food is good, but for what it is - it's somewhat pricey. The specials were probably the best part of dinner. The service was wonderful and easy going.
Great food, lots of fun.........................................................
Services was excellent, followed by the best aburi sushi.
Best sushi in the city
Great food and experience as everyone raves about. Super tasty. We did the Blue Ocean tasting menu and it was perfect.
The food was excellent. The fish was very fresh. Sat on the patio which is great. Very tranquil setting.
