Description: We specialize in Aburi, or flamed-seared sushi, which was developed nearly a century ago in Japan. The act of applying fire directly to sushi enhances the natural flavours and textures of the fish, creating a new and exciting culinary experience. 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) 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.

“Very original Japanese food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

The place is beautiful and the food superb. We ate sushis and sashimis that were somewhat different from the ones we eat in Brazil, but they all tasted very good.

“Outstanding Sake and Sashimi!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We let the Chef and Server surprise us with our entrees.
They did not disappoint.
One of our selections had outstanding sockeye salmon and yellowtail along with prawns. Once the tails of the prawns were eaten, they took the heads back and fried them. VERY TASTY with a light batter. The specialty roles were outstanding as were the flights of sake.

“Winner everytime”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

This was the first time for me at the new location. Was a regular at the old location on west Hastings. Was worried the new place would not be as good. Took clients to it as usual for lunch and was perfect. Great food, good service and atmosphere. The Zen lunch is always a winner when people are open and not sure what they want.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Wow! That's it. Food was wonderful. Staff was competent, friendly, knowledgable, above and beyond with table service. Our server was a male Australian who delighted us with his knowledge of the extensive sake list and his helpful suggestions of what to pick from the menu. Food was delicious, seafood was delicate, each dish was steeped in quality. Already looking forward to the next visit!
