Ate at the sushi bar. Service was a bit spotty. Our waitress kept disappearing.
Aburi is top notch. Opera cake is my fave
Meal was Perfect as always
Amazing service! Great attention to details!
The service was very slow even though the restaurant didn’t seem very busy. In addition, they brought us the wrong meal after waiting an eternity. They eventually brought the correct meal, but there was no apology or compensation. Would not go back.
Come here for the valentine’s day. As usually greeted with pleasant staff. The main waitress is always my most concern for a lot of my visit. Sometimes I get lucky to have some warm family loving one, but occasionally I get one that doesn’t do the job well and today is one of them. After ordering the food, she only came once for checking. I had order dessert from other, table wasn’t clean for dessert, green tea didn’t get refilled once. Let me make it clear, the restaurant isn’t busy at all for such date. For food, I love the valentine’s special dessert!! Amazing! Wish i can eat that instead consistently having green opera is the only choice. P.S. good luck after March once most of the street parking gone!
My fiance and I went here on our first date almost 4 years ago. Since then, Minami has been our special occasion date spot, and it's always fantastic.
Food was very good but the service was a bit on the slow side.
I was looking forward to try Minami, but I have to say that my experience was very disappointing. I like aburi sushi and tried at different restaurants including Miku (long time ago). Minami aburi (all three types) were just simply below average. Rolls were ok. But not worth the price. Also, the place was very loud. I made a reservation a month ago for my special date, and when we arrived, the server gave us the table right in front of the enterance. I was literally facing people waiting. There were empty tables further inside. I didn't complain because I didn't want to ruin the day, but shouldn't those tables for walk-in people? In addition to loud crowd, we had to constantly be inturupped by "how many?" Or "please come this way" etc. It was almost embarrassing sitting and eating so close to the enterance door. I will never go back. I can't understand why the place is so popular. I might try Miku again for good aburi.
Overall the experience was okay. The biggest disappointment was being welcomed by the hostess and being told "seriously, we need the table back in an hour and a half" even though we were on time for our reservation. There were plenty of tables, and it took 5 minutes to seat us. When we finally got seated, they put us in the corner where there was no one else. We asked to be moved to the main area.
LOVE the aburi oshi, the champagne roll was delish. You guys are one of my fav restaurants in yaletown.
Too long to wait for food.
It was awesome with all the food especially the desserts
made a reservation and came on a whim not knowing it was still dineout. food was fantastic
but its not worth the price. total bill was 150 and i was still hungry after. overall cool place with great food but pricey for what you get
$130 for literally $10 in Costs for pre-made plates.
