Miku Restaurant - Toronto
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.
This place exceeded my expectations. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with everything on the menu, it was so fantastic. The place was so clean and well organized and just nice to look at. I've been recommended to come here over and over again by so many friends and I'm so glad I finally did. This is arguably the best sushi I've ever had in my life, let alone in Toronto.
Very attentive staff and very friendly. Service was great and the food was fantastic. We've been to other sushi places but this was amazing
They explain the plate to you so you know what in it. Ambiance was good . No loud music so conversations are private.
Literally the best sushi and food I've ever had. And I've never had such incredible service at any other establishment.
Great service. The octopus was fantastic. Sablefish even better. Sushi was ok.
Excellent food with excellent service.
A bit cold beside the window during winter times though.
First time at this restaurant, heard lots of good comments about this restaurant. We spent almost $400 for 4 people with just one drink. Food is good but nothing special. Our lady server spent minimal time with us. So when we tipped her 15%, she didn’t even break a smile. Won’t be back and whatever I heard, those comments were overrated. There is nothing special about this place.
Absolutely delicious food!
I loved that all the servers were very knowledgeable about the courses but were also very excited about what they served.
It also......just might have killed other sushi restaurants for me.....
Will be coming back for sure!
Valentine’s Day. It was very lovely.
I've been a big fun of Toronto Miku for long time since the restaurant opening. I always enjoy Mike's high quality food and professional service.
However, somewhat I've been feeling Mike's food quality has been depreciation since 2018's summer.
And my Valentine's day course Kaiseki was critical for me. Indeed, I didn't like any of my portion except the desert. (Miku's desert is always awesome) I was really disappointed.
The sashimi and sushi were not fresh enough. The presentation was lack something. Other fusion portions were simplify not tasty... (BTW I have a Japanese back ground; I do know the standard of real Toronto/Japanese food) . Even Mike's signature sushi dish was unusual.
The service was fine... My server was nice and polite enough. However I didn't feel like I was having $480 dinner at all. The service quality I got was not really different between some Ramen restaurant in Toronto.
I miss my old Miku Toronto.
Food and experience was amazing! Highly recommend!
First time in the restaurant. Loved it. Excellent service, great food. Nice ambiance. Nice crowd. Thnx!
Hands down my favourite restaurant in Toronto!
Great ambiance. Excellent high quality food. Proper Japanese. Looking forward to dining there again
We ordered Kaiseki Miku, a five-course of "chef's favourites" along with sake pairings, an amazingly well orchestrated symphony of sights, flavours and fragrances. Our waitress demonstrated a truly impressive knowledge of everything and anything there was to know about sake. Thus our visit to Miku proved to a very memorable journey through sensory experiences, with some solid education to boot!
My only suggestion: Please introduce a 4-course Kaiseki, or perhaps reduce some of the portions. By the time we got to our fourth course (a selection of delightful and exquisitely presented sushi), we were pretty much hitting out limit... and desert still beckoned.
The food was excellent, and the staff all knew that I was proposing to my girlfriend and were really accommodating.
The food is overall very good but just a bit too salty. The waiter is warm-hearted and the environment is good
Best sushi I've ever had. The wait staff was very attentive.
The staff were very friendly. All of the food we had tasted amazing. Awesome service!
Amazing service. The aburi sushi was delicious and the cocktails excellent, but otherwise I was quite underwhelmed by the dishes.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! The staff... the ambiance...the food.. doesn’t get much better than at Miku!
The food was delicious! The staff checks in on you often and were very friendly.
We tried the Winterlicious menu, and it’s definitely worth it. I’m in love with the sushi at Miku and would definitely revisit some day!!! The service was very good as well. Overall it was a great experience.
The food quality wasn’t the same as it was anymore.
I always give Miku all highest level of rating as it is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant in town. I came here at birthdays, every winterlicious and when I am crave for it. I find Miku offers best quality of food among all these restaurants during winterlicous. However, first time I find the experience was not as expected. I received the confirmation call and no one said anything but when we arrived, the host said I should book for three people instead of two as we have a baby. I wrote a note in my booking so they knew we were three so why did they say anything when calling me? I don’t mind that they remind me I should choose 3 during booking but not in a tone that I should be blamed for this. Among all my times here, I met this host for two times, not impressed. Plus, this time the sable fish, my must have every time, too salty. Other than that, I still like Miku a lot.
Wonderful! The lunch menu is especially worth it at Miku in my opinion!
Excellent food and services. We had Miku zen and sushi plates. Everything is so fresh and tasty. we will definitely come again.
Winterlicious great value!
The corner we were put in felt semi-private with minimal noise. The variety of food was delicious and presented in a delightful manner, all explained by the staff who showcased good service. I am definitely coming back here again.
I was lucky enough to get a last-minute reservation, especially during Winterlicious! I got the aburi sushi selection, the sablefish and lobster tail, and the tart. The aburi sushi was delicious, a great mix of light and flavourful tastes. The two rolls did get pretty stuck to the plate though... one of my friend's rolls fell apart. The sablefish and lobster tail were cooked just right and tasted absolutely amazing. The tart was decadent although I personally would have liked a little more ginger taste to round it out. Service was excellent and sitting at the sushi bar provided a good amount of privacy for two friends to catch up.
I was told Miku was the best Japanese restaurant in the GTA by a friend of mine who is a prominent Yelp reviewer. Boy was he ever right! The dining experience was supreme, the best meal of my life. I thought the presentation was perfect, servers were very informative and accommodating. The Winterlicious menu was a culinary journey through flavours, that narrated the tastes the way a writer would guide his reader through a fine book.
Me and my husband where there for winterlicious. Service was awesome, sushi and roll were delicious, my main (the fish) was extremely small... not even 2 oz of fish...and the dessert (the chocolate with the pop corn) looked beautiful but not very flavourful. I found it too expensive for the amount of food.
Came here for Winterlicious 2019, it was my first time at the restaurant. It definitely will not be my last! The food and service are on another level and the Green Tea Opera cake is the best dessert I’ve ever had.
Went here for Winterlicious lunch with a couple of colleagues. I decided to be adventurous and try the vegetarian options; the Garden Zen appetizer set was surprisingly good, but the Garden Sushi Plate main set was very ordinary. The passion fruit soy milk panna cotta was excellent! Next time, I would probably go with the non-vegetarian options!
The sashimi and sushi are very fresh and very tasty. The dessert is delicious. It’s our third time there and food quality never disappoints. The downside is food portion is so small!
Especially for a night for Chinese lunar new year!
Wonderful Winterlicious experience. The sushi was amazing and the mains offered a great choice for all types of dietary requirements. The filet mignon was the better of the two options in terms of portion size. The sablefish and butter poached lobster, although both delicious was a very small portion (lobster tail was half of a very small lobster tail, more prawn like in size) and the fish was about a 4 oz portion of fish but was cooked to perfection and incredibly tasty. The steak portion came in three pieces, wrapped in bacon served with Parisienne potatoes and roasted broccoli, a much more generous portion. The desserts were fabulous as always, the green tea opera cake was outstanding and the Winterlicious special dessert of a Belgian chocolate tart was silky and delicious. Overall the value was excellent for the quality of food and the service/ambiance of Miku.
Counter seating needs better chair. at least the back should be high .
The food is excellent.
Amazing food! Great service and recommendations. A must try restaurant!
Nice ! Very dilicious
