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.

I usually frequent the Vancouver location and enjoy it but at this Toronto location some items I had were not fresh and I could definitly taste that it wasn't what Minami typically offers. Was disappointed in the quality of food for the price. I was also up at night as I had an upset stomach after dinner.

A wonderful evening of exceptional food and excellent service (Thank you Kaja and Dan from Japan)

However, in my humble opinion, the ambiance of the room needed attention-- lights were too bright and the music was non existent for a Saturday night 10pm in downtown Toronto.

Party of 5 for evening meal. The food was excellent. The presentation was a bit lacking with some appetizers which we recognized since this wasn't our first time at this restaurant. But I think this was probably due to it being very busy, our table of 5 rather than 2, and the desire to get the food out to us in a reasonable amount of time since we kept ordering food and drinks repeatedly. At restaurants of this type, you can order appetizers or small dishes and drinks all night if you want a lot of variety and don't wish to eat a larger meal. We spent roughly $150 per person.

Other than some appetizer presentations, which in the grand scheme of things is minor, the evening was very enjoyable and the food was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant and I will return.

Cat, the server was informative, but toward the end of the evening she was almost surly and brusque. It may be time for her to consider a new career.

The food is simply outstanding. The flavors are unique, presented beautifully and wonderful flavors. It’s not only sushi in a typical way- there is so much more to explore on the menu although the pressed salmon is worth coming back for over and over. If you’re in either Toronto or Vancouver this is pretty much a must-go.

2nd time, was equal if not greater than the first at Miku. If you like sushi, then Miku (IMHO) is the best in the City. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.
Went with associates, and the food was so exceptional that we had to stop talking to appreciate the flavours every time we put something in our mouths. Totally exceptional, and we ordered the chef's selection.
We sat on the patio, as it wasn't too busy, and the noise levels inside (it's often full) makes it a little tough for conversation.
If sushi and Asian inspired cuisine is your thing... make the effort (and maybe make sure your bank has some room in it!), and go to Miku. Unparralled thus far in Toronto.

This has become our favourite sushi restaurant in Toronto for special occasions. I would put it on par with Kaji sushi, if you don't mind a little less traditional presentation and flavouring. We have been very happy with the Aburi prime menu. Unfortunately, the quality of wines available by the glass is not on par with the rest of the menu.

I had high expectations of the place.
Interior design wasn't very tasteful, food wasn't tasty enough for how much it cost, but the service was amazing.

Great food. The only thing that made the experience bad were the flies that kept hovering over our table. I guess unavoidable when you have a patio door constantly opening.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Miku. We made our reservation noting two food allergies with guests we were dining with, a nut and seed allergy, and an avocado allergy. The restaurant called us the day of to confirm the reservation and I discussed the allergy with them- they did state some of the food they could not guarantee, but when I said we would likely just have sushi/sashimi they said it would be okay. After ordering the waitress came back and said that the same source is used for all sushi rice so all of the sushi rice is likely cross contaminated and there is no way they could ensure that the food we received is allergy free. This was only brought to our attention AFTER we had ordered appetizers, and since we were going to see a musical that evening we did not have time to leave and have dinner somewhere else. Please note if you have allergies that this restaurant IS NOT allergy friendly and front line staff seem unaware that they cannot accommodate allergies!

This was our first time at Miku. The Staff was exceptional, very attentive and very much contributed to the dining experience. Both the nigiri and sashimi were excellent as was the octopus. We found some of the speciality dishes a little under whelming. It is not inexpensive, but overall a very good dining experience and we are definitely planning on returning.
