We specialize in Aburi, or flamed-seared sushi, which was developed nearly a century ago in Japan. The act of applying fire directly and lightly sear is known to enhance the natural flavors of the fish. Miku owner, Seigo Nakamura, innovated the Aburi concept by creating speciality sauces, using non-traditional Japanese ingredients, to complement the unique taste properties of each fish. Miku Restaurant is within walking distance from the Pan Pacific Hotel, Canada Place, Trade & Exhibition Centre, IMAX Theatre, Cruise Ship Terminals and Sea Bus. If shopping downtown, join us for lunch and re-energize. It's entrance is at the corner of Howe Street and Canada Place Way, overlooking the east cruiseship terminal at Canada Place. **Please note: We do not take reservations for the patio as it is a first come, first serve basis. We also only will hold reservations for an additional 15 minutes.

A 10PM reservation was too late for the Kaisen tasting menu that we had been hoping for, but sharing the Coal Harbour Platter followed by a Miku Signature Selection sushi plate each gave the two of us a sense of the fresh and delicate flavors that Miku has to offer.

Being in Vancouver and don't go asian restaurants is exactly as go to Asia and don't eat their food. ha ha ha. Miku is such a beautiful place, with a great vibe and a modern décor. As mostly of the good restaurants in Vancouver, I would advise you to make reservation before you show up at the restaurant.

Every time I am in Vancouver, I get sushi at Miku. Their proprietary rolls are amazing, the food presentation is first class and the staff is extremely attentive. It can get to be a bit loud, but you don't mind as long as you are looking out onto Coal Harbour.

One of our "must do's" while in Vancouver was to find a great place for sushi. Since we live on the prairies, fresh sushi is not very easy to find. Well, I'm not sure we could have had better sushi or fresher sushi than we did that night at Miku. I had scrolled through other Trip Advisor comments on what... More

Love the menu, love the food and yes I am raving about it, but it is that good. Really. Don't be surprised if you can't get... More

This place has oshi sushi which I have not found anywhere else. It is so yummy it melts in your mouth. The ebi fritter is delicious. The best dessert was the praline dome but think this is seasonal. If you are a foodie you have to try this place. Everything I have had here is good. The service is great... More

One of my top 5 sushi experiences. Rather loud during lunch hours, but you'll forget all about that the second you pop the first piece into your mouth :-)

The ambiance is great - a view of Burrard Inlet and the north shore mountains, with a beautifully decorated high ceiling. The whole place feels airy and open and on warmer evenings the windows are open providing a fresh breeze. You are welcomed by all of the staff as you are shown to your table. The place has a very...

This is the BEST sushi place in Vancouver, hands down. It's a high energy restaurant with a great view of the Harbour. The sushi is incredibly well done and service is superb. Lots of fun as well.

Went with my better half for dinner. Situated next to Canada Place, view of the harbour is fantastic. The service was exceptional. The waitress suggested that we share dishes. We had a seaweed salad, looked and tasted great. Calamari which was extremely tender, tasty and not greasy. Then we had a tuna roll and salmon sushi with jalapenos; both were... More
