Chef Michael Lewis and General Manager Steven Haigh bring a fresh concept to Miami with the opening of KYU. The wood-fired Asian grill features a diverse menu and focuses on professional yet relaxed service and a commitment to green practices.
Chef Lewis’s menu is influenced by years of global travel and inspired by Japanese and Korean yakiniku (literally translated to grilled meat in Japanese). The plates are designed to be straightforward and shareable, enabling a warm social environment. Barbecue aficionados will notice elements of American Southern barbecue peppered throughout the menu including the traditional “slow and low” technique. A carefully curated cocktail list features variations of classic cocktails with clever Asian twists.
The space was designed to bring elements of the neighborhood in with raw concrete, local art, and wood and metal accents. The natural elements in the contemporary design are reflective of

KYU Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful and fun
Order various items and love the grouper
Great drinks with ok wine list but there are wines to match the food
Wish it was easier to get in
Also the coconut cake is only for me so hands off
Really the best coconut cake I have ever had
Our service was below standard. We never got one of the appetizers we ordered, the food was all brought out at different times so at one point, 2 people were done with their dinner and the other 2 people hadn't gotten their meal yet, the side orders had to be cancelled because they took so long, we were done with our meal and they still weren't ready. It was not pleasant having to keep asking the waiter where the food was.
Service was very bad. Late, got last portion of the food order about 30 minutes after the previous plate served. Totally unacceptable. On top of this the Server started to argue about this instead of listen to the facts-which he didn't track or had no timing on, hence he was totally 'over-his-head'!
No good experience. Bin there now several times with clients but need now to look for a different restaurant for business dinners.
Not only are the food and drink amazing here but the people that work there are authentic and warm people. The braised short rib was like nothing I have ever had- puts every other short rib I have had to shame. Not a big veggie eater but the sweet couple at the bar next to me were feasting on kale that they said was amazing. At happy hour the drinks were inexpensive and you could sample many things for only five dollars each. Not one bad thing to say about the place. Make a reservation to make sure you get in
Went early in order to be able to have a conversation with my dinner date. Noise level at 7:15 was like a SOBE nightclub at midnight. Food is delicious. Overpriced but original stuff. Wine list was reasonably priced.
Had gone there for lunch and I think I will do that again
One of the highest quality restaurants in the neighborhood. The food is wonderful and the service very helpful. So many wonderful dishes - steamed buns, korean fried chicken, short ribs, fish, stone pot rice. We were six people and shared everything - I don't think you can go wrong with anything. Very noisy and busy, but intended to be that way. Will go back whenever I'm in the area.
The place is pretty, the food is different not really worth the hype. The price was pretty okay, we spent about 70 dollars per person with a cocktail and dessert. The only bad thing was that the hostess was very rude and put reservation was at 6pm and she told us that she would sit us even though two people from our party weren't there but we had to leave by 8:40pm. I mean why would we stay for that long anyways ? Lol she was just rude and I don't think I will go back. I don't recommend it
Every single thing we ordered was absolutely delicious. The cauliflower with goat cheese and shishito vinaigrette was amazing. Even if you don't like cauliflower, it's amazing. The snapper and the grouper were divine. The beef melted in your mouth. The smores dessert was divine. The service staff was knowledgeable and friendly and made great recommendations and was always around (without being pests). A couple of things you should know. The portions, although described by our server as sharing plates, were very small (except the cauliflower...that's huge!). They were not sharing size; in fact, I'd consider them on the small side even as individual portions. Which leads me to my next point. It's pricey, especially considering the portion sizes. But I'd go again. And I'd recommend it. It was that good.
Food was either over-salted or under-salted. Octopus and beef tenderloin both were overpowered by what tasted like artificial smoke sold in a jar like hot sauce. Tuna tartar was like a pudding on rice way too large which took away from any remnants of tuna flavor. Food very subpar. Wonder what the hype is all about. Service was far from good, barely attentive and my bourbon pours were very short. Priced fairly, assuming the food was actually good. Definitely not going back.
After arriving and selecting our wine, we were told that the rice would take about 40 minutes. So we decided to order a baked potato instead. Also we orders be cauliflower appetizer, grouper and fried chicken. The friend chicken came to the table with no spinach and literally 2 minutes after we ordered. How fresh was it? Was it a cancelled order or had it been sitting there for a while? Also, how was I supposed to eat my meal with no appetizer and how was I supposed to eat while my husband just sat there waiting for his food. We cancelled and paid for our wine, without finishing it, and left. I spoke to the manager and he agreed that they were having some issues. This isn't the 1st time we ate here. But the kitchen obviously has some issues. At least let us eat at the same time and not wait 40 minutes for rice...
