As the first East Coast location of Vancouver based Aburi Restaurants, Miku Toronto is proud to bring Aburi cuisine to Toronto's waterfront.

We specialize in innovative Aburi Sushi and seafood. Combining traditional Japanese techniques and flavours with fresh, local ingredients, our highly skilled chefs pair each morsel of sushi with a unique house made sauce in order to bring out the rich flavour profile of the fish, and then seal the flavours with a binchotan (oak charcoal)- accompanied flame sear. The result is the secret to Miku's success: sushi with a smoky aroma, umami flavour, and decadent, melt-in-your-mouth texture.

We also offer a variety of seafood entrées, appetizers, as well as seafood platters.

Our menu is best paired with our extensive sake, wine, and cocktail selection.

This is the best sushi in Toronto. The rice is so delicate and their Aburi sushi is exceptional.

We were assigned next to the bar where was quite noisy due to happy hour on Thursday night. We were hardly communicated with each other. I will definitely ask for the other side next time.

Miku is a fantastic Japanese restaurant and has the best Sushi in Toronto without doubt. Great service and ambiance. It is a go to restaurant for me and I would highly recommend checking it out. I was just there for my 20th Anniversary and, as expected, everything was just perfect!

There is a lot to like about Miku - the food is quite exquisite and very exclusive, there are only maybe 3 to 4 chefs in this city skilled enough to pull off a "Kaiseki" dining experience. The service staff are very attentive and knowledgeable and make the whole experience charming. However, it's unfair to offer even offer the word Kaiseki on the menu when it falls miles short of what true Kaiseki should be. First off, to charge $150 per person for the full "Aburi" experience, I never met the chef nor saw anyone responsible for preparing the food I was eating, and that's shameful. SHameful that I am spending Kaji kind of money for something half as qualified, a fraction of Kaji"s skill and with four less courses than Kaji.

After my first Kaiseki experience with Mitsuhiro Kaji I felt like I personally knew him (And not forgetting the great Takeshi Okada - the only true certified Kaiseki chef and former partner to Kaji). And the only other chef in the GTA worthy of mention in the culinary tradition of Kaiseki is Chef Masaki Hashimoto, and after my first meal with him he made me feel like a friend. It is not Kaiseki if the chef doesn't even come out to greet you. $150 for 9 courses at Kaji and you'll have a blast! Just saying folks.

If I'm going to spend this kind of money, you're much better off spending less for incredible sashimi nearby with Hiro Sushi. Chef Hiro is a lovely man and an old acquaintance and I've been to Miku three times now and still yet to meet a chef. That really is quite lame and unworthy of a recommendation.

The food was really good. Our server explained everything to us which we really enjoyed. The only thing was that the service was a little slow. We waited about 20 minutes to get a server to ask for our bill. Other than that it was a great experience. I would come back again!

Great meal! Ebi Shrimp Fritters were excellent (only on the bar menu). Had the flamed salmon sushi and flamed mackerel sushi, both great. I highly recommend the Miku roll.

First off, it was a bit confusing getting to the parking. Every time we asked for directions from the servers, they would give us a very vague response. The main elevators in the building doesn't go into the parking, you have to use the one that is hidden behind a set of escalators.
However, our server was great, very friendly.
Food was good, but not amazing for the price. As this is my second time visiting Miku, (first time was in Vancouver), I found the rice for the sushi to be too soft.
The most disappointing part was that the washroom was a huge mess, with toilet paper all over the floor, two out of the three stalls didn't have toilet paper, the sink was a complete mess.
I had high expectations for this place as I loved the Vancouver location. But the Toronto location was a let down.

I tried both Miku restaurants in Vancouver, and the quality at Miku Toronto is equal to the two in Vancouver, I even think the desserts here is better than Vancouver.
Service is excellent, food is perfect. Could not have find a better place to bring my friends and families to.

Our waitress was phenomenal! She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful (Lori?). The Pinot Grigio was so enjoyable and the Sake flight was great, especially for someone who was unfamiliar with Sake. We had the seaweed salad, which was so much better than expected. The garden rolls were outstanding and the aburi sushi was a one of a kind experience. Outstanding overall!!!

This was my first visit to Miku and I was very impressed with our experience. Our server was fantastic, and very helpful, as we wanted to try so much more than 2 people should order. We are looking forward to returning and bringing others along as it truly was a great dining experience and so many memorable and unique choices.

Amazing food. I love their aburi sushi. However, several of the pieces were slightly too oily. I absolutely loved their desserts. Green tea opera is a classic. However the jasmine tea ice cream was very unique as well and worth a try. So make sure to save a bit of tummy space for dessert!

Overpriced and underwhelming - not really japanese food as it was fusion food with lots of prime rib, which is definitely not a japanese staple.
