Located in the vibrant neighborhood of Yaletown, Minami Restaurant delivers one of the most unique and innovative dining experiences to Vancouver. Minami follows the pioneering footsteps of sister restaurant, Miku for introducing the Aburi style or flame seared technique to Vancouver’s thriving sushi scene in 2008. Each piece of sushi is flame seared using a blowtorch and bamboo charcoal, giving it a smokey, melt in your mouth aroma. Aburi sushi requires no soy sauce or wasabi, as the chefs create specialty sauces using non-traditional Japanese ingredients to complement the flavor properties of each variety of fish.

From the kitchen, seasonal and regional ingredients, as well as Ocean Wise seafood options are integrated into dishes to reflect the diversity of responsible food choices. Traditionally trained Japanese chefs are inspired by global flavors and cutting edge techniques to create a new style of cuisine. The culinary approach evokes passion and beauty, as each dish is artfully plated on custom-designed Arita Yaki plate ware, hand picked by owner, Seigo Nakamura from the artisan town of Arita, Japan. Japan-Euro influenced desserts created in house by our pastry team creates the perfect ending to the culinary experience.

Minami restaurant offers a dynamic space for dining and entertaining, which includes two private dining rooms, a seated lounge, hidden sun-filled patio and a custom-built sushi bar. The clean and modern space is weaved together with touches of Japanese aesthetic, creating a culturally contemporary room for dining. Hailing from Kyoto, Japan, internationally renowned muralist, Hideki Kimura's stunning and whimsical work can be seen on many feature walls, including both the Blue Ocean and Blue Wave private dining rooms.

The Minami bar features an extensive sake list created by a foremost sake expert in Vancouver, wine menu and an original cocktail program designed by the highly-acclaimed 2010 Vancouver Magazine’s ‘Bartender of the Year,’ Shaun Layton.
