Description: 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.

The service was average and the food tasted wonderful. The only down side from my perspective was the portions. I ate the remaining food off of my wife's plate and killed a costco sausage roll when I got home. I wouldn't consider myself a big eater and I would not recommend eating here after the gym.

wow. Wow. Wow. Where do I start? First, I never thought I would get my husband to crave sushi, now he does. It's that combo of seared fish with the perfect topping/sauce. Our fav is the salmon. We ordered it four times in two days. We might have a problem. We're addicted to that melt-in-your-mouth aburi sushi. We also tried... More

Loved the seared tuna sushi - very interesting flavor. The view is great if you can get it, the service was as expected for a restaurant at this level, the wine and food selection was abundant yet appropriate.

I ate here 3 times while in Vancouver for 4 days. After I ate here initially (alone for lunch) my colleagues all wanted to try it! Luckily, they were paying for subsequent visits since the prices were really steep. It has an amazing atmosphere and view of the harbor. I would not recommend it for kids though, it is too... More

I've never had aburi (flame-seared) sushi before, but I'm glad I tried it. For sushi traditionalists, this place may not be for you. They do have traditional nigiri and sashimi, but they are known for their aburi. However, if you are a foodie and sushi enthusiast, Miku is a must go. The farm tofu salad was a good start with...

We are very big fans on Japanese food and this restaurant is everything you would want. The staff were efficient and knowledgeable and helpful when required. The location is excellent, the restaurant is in the shape of a fish, the view is good. Located right downtown across from very high end hotels, Miku is a lovely place for lunch as... More

Was treated to lunch here whilst on business. I will be clear, as a general comment, Japanese food is not top of my list when it comes to food, so this was always going to be interesting. The service was efficient lets say, but not all that helpful. The waiter could get it that we wanted a bottle of white... More

Miku, is definitely worth a splurge if you are in Vancouver and wanting something a little bit of luxury. The restaurant itself is set in a high-end part of town with excellent views across the water. The food is really well prepared. I would definitely recommend people to go here.
