Japanese
Specializing in Aburi, or flamed-seared, sushi, the act of applying flame directly and lightly searing sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the seafood. 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.

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

**Please be advised that we will hold reservations up to an additional 15 minutes after your reservation time, after which your table will be released.

Service was very rude. We asked our waitress is there was anything off the menu and she just said no. Then I have to ask if they have bluefin tuna, uni etc... So we could get it.
There was a hair in one of our cocktails and she just replaced it without saying much.
When the food came, there was no explanation of any sort. Plates were dropped and she left right away.
Oysters and uni were very fishy. We had to drown them in sauce to be able to eat it.
Very bad experience overall when we are used to a better one at Miku. This is the last time we would step foot into.

One of the best sushi restaurant I have ever been! We ordered at Miku the first night we arrive in Vancouver and we loved it so much we went the day after. The aburi oshi were really delicious to discover. If you’ve never taste this before, you really need to.

Service was really good I could tell waitress cared. Cost was priced accordingly, food was good but I found hair in a dish. Food looked artistic but the only thing that stood out taste wise was the oishi sampler. Ambiance was nice but was promised window seat didn’t get one.

It's great for a fine dining experience but if you're on a budget and want to be full, this is not the place for you. Otherwise, I would definitely come again for the experience and knowing what delicious sushi/seafood tastes like. Their service is awesome. My suggestion is to eat prior and you'll have a fulfilling meal at the end of the day.

I took my bf here for his birthday and ordered the ebi fritters and the waterfront kaiseki and sashimi platters for two.

Totally enough for two. (Fyi, we had two pints of beer too)

Service was really attentive really quick. Also, a greeting from everyone was making us feel welcomed 😍😍 thank you!

Food was amazing & very unique!! (Tbh Sablefish was a bit salty for me)

MOST OF ALL, THE GREEN OPERA dessert was super tasty. My bf and I were SO impressed by the dessert! That was the best tbh.

Thank you for the service and food today! Was really awesome :))

+ also plates and bowls are so pretty ☺️

It was my first time visiting Miku, and Lenny was our server. He made the evening very comfortable and provided excellent service to me. He gave good menu recommendations and checked in with us at a reasonable time frame every so often. Highly recommend and would definitely come back.

waitress Charlotte is super impatient ... we barely have any problems or fuss about anything but not sure why she acts like that... the front desk person won’t allow us to sit beside the window even though it’s all empty...

Outstanding selections, exceptionally aesthetic presentations, fabulous service - Miku has it all! We were thrilled for our Christmas Eve romantic dinner to order the Holiday tasting menu, absolutely amazing - every course included rare and delicious new finds, our server Christine was attentive, kind and happily shared her encyclopaedic knowledge of the provenance, preparation and species featured. We were thrilled and will definitely be back again!

The service was great.

The holiday tasting menu leaves a lot to be desired. For 150 I was expecting to be wowed. Instead I came home and ate cereal because the meal wasn’t any good. The time in between courses was also too long. We were left at the table wondering when the next course would arrive. It took 2 hrs for all the courses, and that’s after our waitress sped things up for us. She was great. Everything else was just meh.

The first time we had Miku, we immediately loved it – it became our annual (birthday) tradition. It's our 3rd time dining in at Miku, and as usual the place especially the food has always been amazing and over the top! On to the next year!

The service is great. Foodwise, the Aburi is amazing. However, I would say that charging $30 per person for the sashimi is not worth it. There is enough for exactly one piece per person and the size of each piece is meagre.

Great service, good food. Vincent was a fantastic waiter and even picked out our entire meal course by course. I've been to Miku a number of times, but this was the best one yet.
