Miku was an unforgettable experience from the service to the quality of the food. Our server was quick and attentive without being intrusive, all while helping my date and I feel welcomed at the restaurant. The food was delicious - we recommend the pan-seared scallops for the appetizer and the saba (mackerel) oshi sushi and we felt full from ordering three courses each. It is a bit pricey especially if you order drinks, but well worth it.
5-star service and memorable food. Great Attention to detail. Not cheap but worth every penny! I’ll be back.
delicious food and fantastic service but the ambience could be better, seems a little sterile and the alcohol was very overprices
Excellent food and Service. Went for Mother’s day and my mom had a terrific time. Tried the Miku tasting menu plus calamari and added the aburi sampler. Melt in your mouth delicious!
The Toronto location of a fairly famous Vancouver restaurant. You won't be disappointed, great sushi!
This place blew my mind. My boyfriend and I eat sushi 2-3 times a week. When we arrived, I assumed it would just be your average sushi place. Hands down this was the best sushi I have ever eaten. In addition, our server was friendly and really guided us through the menu with smart suggestions. We took his advice on everything and I’m so happy that we did. I will definitely be back next time I’m in town.
This restaurant does not disappoint! Service is top notch and the restaurant is open and light but also intimate. Comfortable seating and excellent menu choices. Quality of food and preparation as well as description, and knowledge of the staff, is exemplary. Always know that a meal here is going to be exceptional.
Miku is our family’s favourite Japanese restaurant. We enjoy both the regular and special occasion menus here. The Mother’s Day cherry blossom menu is another good example of a well thought out and well priced offering here. All of us were impressed by the earl grey cheesecake and pistachio ice cream dish at the end. Wish to be able to order it from regular menu too. 10 thumbs up like my daughter put it. Thanks Miku!
Amazing as always - lunch menu was good. We were in a rush and they accommodated us.
This was not the first time we went there but this time the food was not as good as before.
Hostess was rude and made us feel very unwelcome
Food was delicious but overpriced
Second visit within a month. Food is excellent, service top rated (especially Lynn, friendly, funny, tentative).
This is authentic Aubri Sushi, not your All-you-can-eat type. Quality is exceellent.
I wish there was a "Not Sure" option to your "would you recommend this restaurant to a friend?" question.
Great to see this Vancouver restaurant opening a branch close to the Toronto harbor. My review is high and low as follows:
The décor is gorgeous & so is the food. Lunch menu was quite expensive by Toronto standards, but definitely worth it in terms of freshness & presentation.
The sake-wine-cocktail menu is 4 long pgs, however, they only offer 3 teas (they were not listed on beverage &/or food menus).
Our waitress' service was not good. When she served my tea she poured a lot on the table & plopped the pot on top. I assumed she would be back to mop up the large spill but didn't bother even after 2 visits to take our order, etc. I politely asked her to clean it up before our food come & she sent someone else over to do it.
A manager came to the table to enquire about my friend's food allergy and was very attentive.
The food was served by 2 men who explained the sashimi & sushi as well as the special sauces very well. They were knowledgeable & obviously interested in their jobs.
The sashimi lunch I had was amazing from the miso soup to the presentation of the food & the amazing textures and flavours of everything.
The waitress asked if we wanted dessert - nope - and then came back to the table with two bills (she assumed we would be "splitting" the meal). That was embarrassing as the lunch was a birthday treat & only one bill was required. She should have asked & not assumed.
I personally feel hip hop music should be played if that is your market. However, the majority of the Saturday lunch time crowd was in their 40s-50s-60s & although it wasn't earsplitting, it wasn't really good for the décor, Japanese food &/or the age range of the clientele.
I am sure the bar area is super busy and fun in the evening and all the hotels and the office tower keep things hopping.
Had been to the Vancouver location which was excellent. Unfortunately, the food at this location was very disappointing. Flavorless, over cooked scallops. Nigiri with sickly sweet sauce on the fish ; tasted weirdly sweet (like royal icing. Very tiny amounts of fish on top of huge mounds of rice. Just really disappointing food.
I come from Vancouver British Columbia. I go to Miku their all the time. Miku Vancouver is excellent. The restaurant is spectacular, with an awesome water view of the mountains their food is fresh and incredible. West Coast has great fresh fish. This was a tall order for Miku Toronto to live up to.
Unfortunately, Miku Toronto was not up to the same quality of food as Vancouver. Our server was great but the restaurant quality was subpar and was not worth the cost. I would not recommend it.
Excellent high end food. Try the coal harbour seafood platter.
The food was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. The servers were knowledgeable and attentive and thoughtful. It was my birthday so she wrote "happy birthday" with my name in chocolate on the plate and included a little candle. Would definitely go again, no question!
Great food! Had the Sakura special and AAA Silver Prime beef. Service was great!
Found it weird that they were showing Raptors game on/off.
Overall, great experience!
The server was wonderful, the food was well presented with the staff explaining each aspect of our platters. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good sushi experience.
Went for the first time to celebrate a birthday and did not disappoint. Was skeptical about the price point, but safe to say I experienced the best sushi of my life on this visit to Miku.
Not sure I could justify the price points for regular visits but expect myself to try to make excuses to celebrate here in the future.
The aburi pieces were the highlights of the visit, definitely a unique and incredibly delicious option. Only thing was all the servers speak SUPER quietly, so we had a bit of difficulty really listening to the details of the menu and elements of the sushi platter presented to us.
Love the aburi sushi - perfect smoky hint of flavour. Lovely service; friendly and efficient. Ate too much as always - can’t stop! Always recommend Miku to friends who enjoy only the best quality seafood.
Great service, bad and overpriced food and drinks. Not worth the money. Will not be returning.
Amazing. Just as good as Vancouver
Food and service were very good but overall, quite a pricey place to go- not sure that the value was there.
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.
Special mention to Mike, thanks so much for your advice
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.
Food is always great at Miku. Service is great too.
This is one of the best in Toronto. Amazing Japanese cuisine with excellent service. A bit on the expensive side but worth it on occasions.
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.
The service was impeccable.servers were enthusiastic and knowledgeable.The food was interesting, tasty and outstanding.
I was a bit surprised that the decor was not as elegant as the food. My daughter wanted to come back the next day.
As always, they were superb! Great food!
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.
Food was above par Sushi, service was good but the room has zero atmosphere with a view of the parking garage across the street.... Other better choices available.
A wonderful and tasty experience
