About Miku

Bringing a distinct style to North American shores, Miku Restaurant in the heart of Downtown Vancouver, is an authentic Japanese restaurant with a pioneering twist.

Introducing innovative culinary techniques to the thriving Vancouver restaurant scene, Miku’s chefs are proud to work with the finest, locally-sourced ingredients and are keen supporters of the Ocean Wise campaign.

Lightly flamed-seared sushi is the secret to its success, creating an alluring aroma: simply divine on the palate.  After waving the magic blowtorch wand, the talent and highly skilled chefs match each morsel of sushi with a unique homemade sauce. A Kyoto and Polish-trained pastry team create inspired desserts and the cuisine is perfectly paired with a globally-sourced wine list and specialty sakes.

Translating as “beautiful sky”, Miku’s design features are influenced by nature: sustainable elements were used to create the restaurant’s most notable features including its glass waterfall, pebble stone pathway, white marble countertops and its distinct floating glass cloud ceiling.
