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.

Had the Holiday Kaiseki with my date. It was more like an Omakase, but nevertheless, everything tasted great, the courses were paced well, the dishes were all plated professionally, and we were actually pretty full by the end of the meal. Would definitely recommend to those willing to splurge a bit for a great experience.

This place is nothing special like a lot of people say. I found their sushi to be ok. One of the oysters was tiny and tasted a little too fishy for me. Salmon sashimi wasn't the best.
Coattails are delicious though and they have a very good variety.

Nice place, decor and ambiance was good. The sushi was not top notch but good. I really like the way they prepped the sushi, very good. If you want a little different prep for sushi this is a great place. Pricey thought.

I had a great dinner at Miku. I went Miku to treat my bf a nice dinner, as he loves seafood. Reason why I choose Miku is because they have oysters as well as sashimi and sushi.
We had waterfront platter, aburi prime, oshi sushi sampler and couple of more sashimi.
The waterfront platter I got tuna, albacore belly, salmon and seabream for sashimi. Every components of the platter were absolutely amazing and the quality of sashimi was just great.
I also had sea urchin, tuna belly and amberjack sashimi, which were perfect.
Aburi prime and oshi sushi were little bit salty so you don’t really need soysauce.
Dessert were also amazing. The yuzu pavlova was so refreshing it was my favorite.
Service was great, too. Our server made our dinner so special. Every staff was very knowledgeable about the menu and explained us details. But I wish they can describe little more details about the ingredients and sauce in the foods(like what Akira Back does) so the guests can aware and enjoy their expensive dishes.
The floor was quite noisy and I don’t recommend here for quiet meetings.
It is pricy even for its high quality of foods and services. You have to spend at least $120 each person + tips.

Fantastic food and unbeatable service! It’s definitely one of the best Japanese restaurant I’ve been. Good wine selection but it was a bit overpriced but I guess it’s restaurant price. ($18/ bottle of Pinot noir for $68.) We ordered the coal harbour platter, Aburi Prime, and some Aburi Oahu Sushi... and we love it all! Dessert was innovative and very delicious! It was overall a great experience!

The food was delicious and we enjoyed every bite but the menu was extremely over priced for what you get. They explained that the restaurant is meant to be a sharing menu - we ordered 4 courses and went away hungry with an expensive bill ($150). The waitress even asked us if we wanted to see the menu again - I guess they are used to people paying exorbitant prices. If you can afford a $300+ bill just to feel satisfied, then I recommend it for you. If not, I'd recommend somewhere else.

I loved how they greeted us when we got in and the host says something to the chef each time a client comes by and they respond. Authentic cultural reference there. I'm so sorry i didnt get my waiter's name. He's an indian and wears glasses, a lil on the build body side, and hair parted to the side. He went above and beyond for us. Made us feel welcomed and checked on us at appropriate intervals. We had sushi and they were just delectable. Loved it. Price is high but expected. Had no qualms with the place. Granted, im a cheapskate and prolly can't afford to go back there, unless another friend takes me😁 but i overall had a lovely experience.

Went for our anniversary. Beautiful, classy, upscale aesthetic. Fantastic, attentive service from the front desk and wait staff for the most part -- there was one girl who did not seem too familiar with the desserts when we asked for more details about it, but it was a minor thing. We shared the Waterfront Platter, a mix of nicely presented seafood -- each of the different components were quite delicious (the salmon ceviche and sashimi were so fresh and flavourful), but they unfortunately did not come together to create the 'umami' impact we were hoping for. That said, those hopes were later answered with their affogato and chocolate matcha lava cake desserts -- they were to die for, absolute perfection and the umami we wanted. They surprised us by writing out 'Happy Anniversary' in chocolate sauce on our dessert dishes; it was a really nice and connecting touch.

Overall, we had a fantastic experience that paralleled our experience at their sister restaurant in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any special occasion!

BE AWARE. My partner and I went to Miku Toronto on last Saturday to celebrate our anniversary. This restaurant is known for its upscale sushi/seafood dishes. Not for everyday due to high prices, but rather for special occasions. After an hour of indulging into one of the recommended menu dishes, we both felt our stomachs turning. We immediately expressed our concerns to a manager on duty, Mrs. Michelle Seguin. Our intentions were to alert the management of possible food contamination. We were both shocked to hear Michelle's blunt "I don't know what you are hoping for here".

At that point we figured our efforts were pointless as we were not being taken seriously and asked a server to bring the bill. Before we were on our way out Michelle asked for our contact info and assured she will be calling us next day to follow up on our condition.

She never called.
