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.

Went for a late lunch thanks to a delayed flight arrival, and we left just before dinner. It was fantastic! The service was great and very accomadating since we all still had our luggage, and the food was delicious. We sat at the bar and asked the head chef to just make us up whatever he felt like making. this is the way sushi should be eaten. every dish was a fantastic surprise, not to mention the magnum of saki that was recommended by one of the other chefs. We had a great time, and we will be sure to visit again!

Vancouver is known for it's sushi and this restaurant did not disappoint. I got all their "specials" and they were unreal. I highly recommend this restaurant. The staff were extremely accommodating.

Yep, wonderful! This was a great restaurant, wonderful view, superb service and some of the best food we've had in a while. We picked it due to Tripadvisor rating it #2. So right.
Four Winnipegers served by (surprise) a Winnipeger. We had a fabulous lunch here. The gyoza were great, especially the pickled onions. Two of us had the Aburi Chirashi Tart...what can I say? Subarashi! The other meals were equally good, which I tasted, but the tart won me over and I kind of went into a zone enjoying the meal. SO good.

“Stunning Restaurant”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

I was treated to a birthday lunch this week at Miku. Being acquainted with the previous restaurant I was not prepared for the beautiful transformation of the premises into Miku. It is a stunning, upscale, trendy restaurant overlooking the water in Coal Harbour. It is large, bright, modern & beautifully appointed. Since there were so many unique choices on the menu and we couldn't make up our minds, we shared a sampler platter which was beautifully presented & tasted as delicious as It looked. It was undoubtedly the best sushi I have ever had! Everything looked pricey but luckily for me, I was not picking up the bill. I would love to return and sample more from its very interesting menu.
