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.

Following provincial mandate, Miku will be requiring proof of complete vaccination (2/2 vaccines) upon indoor dining starting September 22, 2021.

We loved the food. It was so delicious. The sashimi was fresh and flavorful. The Ebi fritters too! The waitress was so helpful and attentive too. Will certainly come back.

Went to this place today, it's way over the top overpriced for what they serve. We did the 5 course tasting menu, and this was the special anniversary tasting menu for $150pp. Though it would be something special, what they served was very basic sushi with no flavor. I am still not sure what aburi sushi is, but they apparently served that and it was absolutely bland. I have visited Michelin 1,2 and 3 star restaurants before, this place is charging Michelin 2 star prices for sub Michelin bib quality food with 0 culinary experience. Was my first visit today, very disappointed and will not visit again.

Food is not fresh. Pricy base on the food quality. The taste is similar to other Japanese restaurants. Nothing special. Good service but they require more training.

Though a snafu on our part prevented us from being seated at our original reserved time, Miku worked with us to modify our reservation to a later seating. The wait was well worthwhile. The menu catered to both of us, one not particularly fond of sushi, and each course was simple perfection. The chef even made a complimentary single piece sample for me of his signature Aburi salmon nigiri so I could experience and appreciate this style of sushi the Miku companies’ owner brought to North America...ah, such an elevating difference! All in all, a superb dining experience!

Amazing food, cocktails and service. We had come to celebrate our engagement and my fiancé had chosen this restaurant. Although we had a small hiccup with getting an indoor seating (our fault as one of us didn’t carry ID) our outdoor table was the only choice in the end.

Hein was our server and he made the entire dining experience superb right from the get go. We had researched the menu and he advised us on the best possible was to have the complete Miku dining experience. With each dish served they offered a short introduction on the dish and its uniqueness.

We recommend:

- Cocktails like the Oishii and Aburi Lemonade if you are gin aficionados. Oishii was our favourite amongst the two.
- Appetizer was Chicken Nanban and the homestyle tartar sauce was very delicious.
- Entrée was Kaisen Soba Peperoncino which was very flavourful and a little on the peppery side for me!
- We had the Aburi Oshi Sampler and a half-n-half selection of Miku and Red Wave Rolls - trust their suggestion when they say you don’t need soy sauce with them!
- Dessert was the Warm Matcha Valrohna Chocolate Fondant which was goeey-ly delicious in every bite.

Overall superb dining experience!

Fantastic dining experience. Our server explained all the delicious plates that arrived and we were treated to a special fresh raspberry sorbet made in-house for our anniversary. This was extra special since it was our first time returning to this location to eat indoors since the pandemic so it was very much appreciated

Overall the food was good but way way overpriced. Bluefin Tuna sashimi "freshness" was disappointing. Salmon sashimi freshness level was nothing to write home about either.

Outdoor patio on a very noisy street. It’s as good as it gets, considering it’s outside of the restaurant control.
