Japanese
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.

Private Dining

Miku Toronto offers one private and one semi-private dining room to suit your dining needs. The hand painted murals by acclaimed Japanese painter Hideki Kimura creates a special ambiance in our private dining rooms, creating one of Toronto’s truly unique and exceptional dining experiences

The Chef's Select had a perfect balance of warm dishes that complement the accompanying sushi which ranged from classic nigiri, aburi oshi, and delightful rolls.

The anniversary Kaiseki overall was great - the only 2 comments were a) the scallops were overcooked and b) the Waugu rib was expecting some meat but end up having lots of fat which was a bit disappointing

Mentioned to them in the past the seaweed for Ikura sushi should be dry but this still hasn’t improved unfortunately

We go there a lot. It used to be better. Prices have increased and portion size reduced. It was our go-to place but we now try other places more often.

I have known this place from the Vancouver franchise. First time I tried it in Toronto. It was awesome! From Dan’s awesome service, to the Coal Harbour Platter, to the seared salmon roll (their signature roll) (that was by the way the best sushi roll I have ever tasted. Best part was the desert. We took the mochi red velvet mint desert and it was amazing from presentation to taste.
A must in Toronto!

I discovered Miku when visiting Vancouver and I am thrilled their first branch is in Toronto.

The food and service, as well as the cool decor, are all absolute perfection.

Every time I go there - usually for special occasions and to impress out of town visitors - it is better than the last outing.

This time I discovered their patio and it is quiet and a haven in downtown Toronto.

The servers are all extremely knowledgeable about the food they are service and obviously take pride in giving great service.

Miku is different that all the other Japanese restaurants in town and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Service good as usual. However this time one of the pieces of sushi I ate must have been bad because it gave me an upset stomach :(:(.. the only thing I had this time that I don't usually have was otoro sushi which did taste slightly questionable

Attentive staff, Outstanding food, Great ambience. You can’t go wrong with any menu selection and if you can’t decide the staff is very helpful with suggestions. The Aburi Prime is an excellent choice to explore Miku’s innovative sushi.

The Aburi sushi is amazing. I would prefer it they would provide some soy sauce with the deluxe sushi platter in case you would like to dip some of the sushi in it.

The food was very tasty in terms of flavours and the rice was wonderful. However the portion of fish on the sushi was skimpy and the mussels were tiny. Not what one would expect at the price point.

Service was very good and ambience on patio was lovely.

This was my second visit to Miku and thank goodness I came back. If you go you MUST have the Aburi Kaiseki, please trust me it is worth it. Also ask to be sat in Grace's section. She is by far one of the most thoughtful, truly caring and professional servers I have experienced in all of my dining experiences all over the world.

Both visits I had the Kaiseki, the first time was the Miku Kaiseki back in August and during this visit I had the Aburi Kaiseki. My first visit was not bad however there was nothing truly memorable about the service or the menu.

My second visit however everything was memorable! From the great customer service that Grace (our server) provided to the incredible dishes that were part of the Aburi Kaiseki (especially the first course of seared Foie Gras.

Will definitely be back.

We went in with high expectations. For appetizers, we ordered beef carpaccio which was passable. We also ordered a steak which was tender and well cooked though a bit under seasoned. We finished with two Omakase sets. Of the 10 pieces, there were 3 pieces that were inedible. The beltfish had some ligament / unchewable piece left in and they decided to sear the BC uni (why!?) which made it decided fishy. The uni flavor was lost and we asked if it had gone bad. Finally, we specifically asked for two piece of Otoro (we ordered an extra piece), but we received only one piece - despite repeated clarifications.

This was my husband's and my first time at a high end restaurant and our experience was amazing. The staff was friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable; the food was absolutely delicious, cooked perfectly and very flavorful. They made our anniversary very special by doing a little something unexpected to our dessert. Definitely worth the money spent and we would go back there in a heartbeat.

Overall good choice for a nice dinner. But the atmosphere is more formal and commercial rather than a cozy and lively Izakaya restaurant. The food are great and the service are impressive with considerations and kindness (they bring a birthday cake for my love and that was totally not not on our menu )
