Located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Yaletown, Minami follows the pioneering footsteps of its sister restaurant, Miku, in delivering the innovative dining experience of Aburi cuisine to Vancouver's thriving food scene. Each piece of sushi is flame-seared using a blowtorch and binchotan (oak charcoal), resulting in sushi with a smoky aroma and a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

PLEASE NOTE:
Patrons aged 12+ must provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to dine at Minami. Please show proof of vaccination at the reception via one of the following approved records:

1. BC Vaccine Card printed, or on mobile phone
2. An outside-of-BC Immunization Record

    Food was excellent. Very attentive service. The only issue we had was the ordering was awkward as we were a table of 6 and we were ordering a la carte for 4 and 2 were ordering individually. There were a lot of little orders, individual nigiri pieces, etc. our server had trouble keeping track because she was not writing the order down. We ended up with dish we never ordered and she missed one item, which was fine we didn’t complain. We would’ve perhaps ordered more food but we didn’t because the ordering was so awkward.

    Great experience at Minami! Beautiful restaurant in Yaletown. Very professional staff and the ambiance is great. We've eaten at the sister restaurant, Miku a few times before. We like this restaurant's ambiance better, although the noise levels inside Minami is on the high side. Next time we'll choose the patio. Now coming to the food. Everything, from the appetizers, to the sushi rolls, main course and dessert, was fresh and tasted fantastic! The presentation was fantastic too. Our server was really pleasant, knowledgeable and helping us choose our dishes. We'll definitely come here again!

    ... wide variety of fresh nigiri sushi; Riza (our server) was remarkable, both personable and knowledge, a big add-on to my dining experience. Please be flagged that price was a bit high with imported seafood from Japan, but was totally worth what I paid for.

    It was a horrible experience! The sashimi platter was a joke, we paid $30 per person for the sashimi platter alone and there were three of us but when it came, the platter was only good for 1 and a half person! The service was terrible! The waiters are terrible and the Batman awful!!!! Way too noisy and too expensive, the value and quality of food is sub par. Will definitely not return. Waste of money!
