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.

We have dined here many times at dinner, preferring to sit at the counter, and it’s been excellent. Also at the one in vancouver. This was the first time I went for a business lunch , and it was not as good. Food still excellent, quality and quantity . However the noise level and music level made it difficult to have a business conversation, and the server kept interrupting us, in a hurry to take our orders etc - as though he was on a mission to turn the table.

As visitors to Toronto we wanted to have a dining experience unique to the city. Miku is a wonderful blend of Japanese tradition with local ingredients. Our server and supporting wait staff were very helpful once they knew it was our first time there, and guests in their country. The restaurant was busy and energetic but not overwhelming loud. We had a delicious dinner and enjoyed all elements of our meal. Thanks for a great experience, Miku!

Although the food IS exceptional, it is also exceptionally expensive. Even acknowledging its presence in the Queen's Quay tourist area, given the ambiance (not exceptional) and service (good but not outstanding) the price is hard to justify unless it's a REALLY special occasion... even then, I'd choose another spot I think.

We were late for our reservation so they gave away our table. They seated the 4 of us at the bar. Later on the manager comes over and tells us that everyone should be 19 to be seated at the bar. You sat my wife and our two kids at the bar so it was your fault not ours.

The highlight of the meal was dessert. That is not what I expect at a sushi restaurant. Frankly,
I usually skip dessert. While the tuna sashimi was excellent, the salmon less so. The seaweed salad was creative and it was presented beautifully, but the taste experience was overly complex and lost impact. The fresh oysters were very good and I enjoyed them. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, but they were understaffed on a busy evening. Prices, even for downtown Toronto, are quite high. Don't expect to walk out with less than 150 per person.

The food is not that tasty as I expected, especially the signature aburi sushi. The sashimi is fresh and I like it. Service is good. The restaurant is so cold. If we only talk about how’s the food taste, it is a bit overpriced.

This is my second visit after 2 years. Quality of food definitely gone down. Presentation of every dish still looks great but doesn't taste as good anymore. Quite disappointing. Don't think I'll be going back again.

Unique menu offerings and extensive sake list make this restaurant to deliver rather dining experience than just food. Sable fish was outstanding. However, waiters probably should be helping guests a little better to navigate through unfamiliar items on the menu

We LOVE Miku in Vancouver. So had to try Miku in Toronto while on a business trip here. It had the same excellent food! And good service, although our server seemed a little young and inexperienced. She was friendly though.
We had a business dinner for 4 here. It was a great place for a business dinner, our dinner guests LOVED the food too. Miku is a unique dining experience because of their Aburi style sushi. All their food is excellent! Desserts are amazing too! We definitely recommend their signature salmon oshi dish.

The only thing this Miku is lacking is ambiance and a view. The setting was very disappointing after enjoying the fantastic view of mountains, ocean and sunset at Miku Vancouver. Our view here was a parking lot tower and a sidewalk.
We love Vancouvers location, now that they moved to the waterfront :)
We’d still recommend this Miku for a fantastic food experience though.

Everything was great. Depends what you are looking for, it is not the traditional Japanese cusine but more on the fusion side. Prices are reasonable except for my 9-oz glass of Chablis, $33 !

Very enjoyable menu, good quality sushi with their own (aburo oshi) take on sushi. Not a massively extensive choice, but all very good quality. Service was very good and knowledgeable - and the place wasn't too loud, happily. Although it was a Monday evening.
