We tried Minami restaurant based on the great reviews on open table and as we had tried their Vancouver restaurant. We arrived for late lunch and the server offered us either the lunch or dinner menus which was nice. We both had a lunch box which is always a nice variety.

Very mediocre foods. Only 2 cocktails in the list worth trying. And service was bad!!! So many staffs walking around, but we left alone for hours! I had to wave my hand for a minute to get attention to order next course or the next drink.
We won’t come back

Great staff and service. The food did not disappoint. Beef Sukayaki Pot Roast was super flavorful, perfect for a cold fall day to warm yourself up. Definite repeat.

The Japanese Cheese Tart was beautifully presented and tasted just as good! Not too sweet!

The decor is stunning, the service from the moment we walked in until we left was exceptional and the food…. Amazing! Had a wide variety but stand outs were the Alberta beef tenderloin, brown butter gratin potatoes and the salmon Oshi. If you only try one dessert, it must be the Japanese Cheese Tart. Good selection of creative cocktails and sake.

Waitress was really attentive, answered questions, provide great recommendations. Now for the food. We eat sushi / sashimi all the time and were not sure what to expect from look at the menu ahead of time. Glad we went! Kudos to the chefs for how the sushi and salads are made. Very unique with lots of amazing flavour. It’s such that you don’t actually use wasabi and soya sauce. Will go back for sure and highly recommend for those wanting to try sushi differently.

I had a great experience at Minami thanks to very friendly servers, Tamaki and Dan. The price might seem a bit high, but it is more than worth for the quality and the size of each dish. I am looking forward to going back soon.
