The Miami restaurant will be composed of two Japanese culinary concepts – the main dining being a robata concept and the hidden room in the back called 'The Den' which will be a 16-seat counter serving only authentic Japanese sushi.
Led by Chef Masatsugu(Masa) Kubo, the menu will feature innovative dishes curated especially for Miami by using exclusively sourced ingredients. The hidden sushi room will feature authentic sushi in Omakase style, where sushi chefs will guide guests through a true experience.

Absolutely fantastic Japanese meal with our son. The best place for sushi in Miami Beach. Our server, Frank, was exceptional and his recommendations were spot on. Must haves: tuna pizza, lobster tempura, Toro tasting. And the Zuni was exceptional. Can’t wait to go again.

Everything was great except our server had quite the attitude and a bit of a memory issue. The hostess and bartender were both excellent, as well as the food. We thought maybe our server was new or just having a bad day.

Azabu is always high quality. I don’t typically get rolls but I do here since they’re large and a great value ($13-$16). Good service, menu, and manager.

Love the food and ambience and service but someone needs to change the music ASAP. Buddah bar type music is what is required. Not teen rock or teen pop music. Fix that and the ambience would be perfect

New favorite sushi spot in Miami!! The ambiance is so cozy, warm, and inviting, while still being chic. We had an 8:30 reservation but were running late, when i called to let the host know, she was so pleasant and accommodating! We were a larger group with different dietary needs (a vegan and i’m pescatarian) Our waiter was quick to point out vegan options and plates that could be made vegan! He also gave us a sake tasting and drink recommendations. For the reviewers on here upset about the order the plates come out, they LITERALLY tell you right off the bat that plates will come out as they’re ready and recommend what order to order if you want certain things together. the wait staff could not be more forthcoming and helpful. All of the plates we ordered were phenomenal. The eggplant, brussel sprouts, and crab rice were amazing. I also got some nigiri. All the fish was insanely fresh and the o-toro was the best i’ve had in a long long time. Apparently they fly it in from japan! This place has all the big sushi/japanese restaurants in miami beat by a mile. Will definitely be back, need to try The Den omakase next!

Azabu brings some innovative options to the traditional Japanese cuisine. Although they offer a broad selection of hot meal, stay with the crudos. Besides tuna and salmon, I strongly recommend the snapper and the fluke. More tasty, impossible.

This was a big disappointment. After months of wanting to go there and hearing so many rave reviews, the experience was nothing special. The menu and food was good but for the price it was nothing spectacular. Despite showing up 25 mins early for our reservation, and having the manager check on us while we were waiting, they sat us 15 mins late. The inside is charming but very small with only a few tables being cozy and nice, the other tables you have people on top of you. Outside was nothing special. Just surrounded by concrete. The service was good, again nothing special especially given the price point. I’d be willing to go again to sit alone or with a friend at the sushi bar. But I wouldn’t go back with a group of any size.

Had dinner in The Den, a separate omakase area in the back of the restaurant. In a word: outstanding. OT should have a 6th star for this place. Japanese chefs and/or Japan-trained only, all of the fish is flown in daily from (the new) fish market in Tokyo, the uni and ikura are brought in from Hokkaido. Pleasant, professional, friendly service without any attitude, and the restaurant is about enjoying exquisite food only. Other high-end sushi places in Miami now almost laughably deficient, overpriced and only serve a purpose if you want to be seen or impress people who have never been to Japan. Cost (we paid $450 for 2 without going overboard on the sake) is well worth it but also reasonable compared to similar experiences in NYC or Toronto. Also don’t forget that omakase in Japan isn’t meant to be a cheap outing either. Will definitely return!

Sanjay and Henry were the best team of servers! They made my birthday experience just that a true experience and an unforgettable one. I am more than excited to add Azabu on my list of frequented restaurants and I cannot wait to have the honor and opportunity to sit with them again and to try the omokase, which is only Wednesday to Sunday.
