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.

“Exceptional Dining Experience”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We recently dined at Miku and had a wonderful time. We ordered the Miku Shokai which is
an introduction to the Miku experience through a selection of their trademark dishes. From beginning to end the service and food was exceptional. We also ordered a very nice bottle (okay 2 bottles :) ) of their sake. I liked the restaurant's modern atmosphere and though the food isn't what you would typically expect in a Japanese restaurant it was indeed to die for. The wasabi pickle was a new culinary experience for me and I absolutely loved t! All of the dishes were composed of the freshest ingredients and left you wanting more.The panna cotta dessert with fresh berries though not Japanese in the least ended a marvelous meal. Also, the view was great!

“Great service, Great View, Great Food!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We booked a table after a work event and everyone was thrilled with Mike. With all the great Sushi/Japanese restaurants Vancouver is blessed with Miku manages to stand out from the crowd. The lightly seared nigiri was outstanding! The wasabi prime rib was mouth watering. I really enjoyed the unique flavor pairings accompanying the sashimi (again lightly seared). While I'm not a fan my coworkers seemed to really enjoy the fresh oysters. The service was awesome. Our server was friendly and very knowledgeable.

“Try out the Miku Sen!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This is an expensive restaurant, but you can taste the best dishes if you try out the Miku sen where you can sample several dishes and the creative cuisine of their chef. The restaurant is always busy, and if you get seated in the lounge, it is not very confortable. Also it is not kids friendly.
