Right on the waterfront is one of my favourite places to eat. Order anything off the menu at Miku from the buckwheat soba noodle salad, to any of the rolls, and you will be consistently pleased. As a large group, get a little of everything and share it, or if you are only one or two, try the Zen Meal to get a taste of everything. It comes with the chef's choice of 4 seasonal items and 5 pieces of Aburi sushi.
Aburi sushi is different from regular nigiri in that the raw fish is brushed with a lovely creamy sauce then lightly flame seared, toasting the sauce and fish slightly. The surprise of hot and cold, raw and cooked with this sauce is pure heaven. I always indulge in a full order of Salmon Oshi Sushi for myself! No apologies, it's all Oceanwise.
You'll want to save a little space. Unlike most asian restaurants, the dessert is as good as the entree. Prepared in house with classical european flavours and Japanese commitment to beauty and simplicity each one is magic. Seriously. Do try the Green Tea Opera Cake if it's being served.
Note: The decor is also unbelievable. There are stunning views of the harbour. Artist Hideki Kimura was flown in from Japan to paint the mural which includes 24k gold paint! It's stunning.
Be sure to put in a reservation if you are planning to come for lunch on a work day as it's a hot spot with the well heeled business crowd even with it's 210 seat capacity.
My only complaint is that the host staff and management is usually rude and inhospitable. If you can get past that you are guaranteed one of the best food experiences Vancouver has to offer.
